Update: 07/05/2021
On May 7th, 2021 (March 26th, LC), Junior Thich Tam Duoc came to the main hall to preach a dharma talk in the 96th seven-day retreat to participants on the title: "There is no affection like that for oneself."
 

Dharma Talk “There is no affection like that for oneself” – The 96th Seven-Day Retreat.

 

In the Anguttara Nikaya of sutra, the Buddha taught "There is no affection like that for oneself." In this life, there is no one who loves us as much as we love ourselves. When the Blessed One was still Prince Siddhartha, he contemplated sentient beings being forced by old age, sickness and death that no one could resist including Him. Next, the pure, liberation image of the monk inspired the prince to find the method of liberation,  liberation from old age, sickness and death for himself first, then relatives and finally people getting conditions with him.

He confided that when we were still beings, still in existence in this world, we were also governed by impermanence - misery - no self and floating in samsara, we must still meet; so, we should meet each other in good conditions.

In fact, when death comes, people will go alone without anyone to follow them. Even if the loved ones love that person a lot, they can't follow, only its good or bad karma will follow beside. Therefore, in time at the temple or at home, we should try to study, understand and practice dharma in order to have our experiences and wisdom before facing old age, sickness and death.

We should practice living with the perception "There is no affection like that for oneself" to practice right now and here to make a habit of liking dharma. Let be voluntary, self-consciousness, self-cultivation, self-study, self-control in the precepts we have received. It is our spiritual experience, cultivation, habits and lifestyle, like good friends will follow us until death. So, good or evil is chosen by us.
