Following was teachers and\r\nmembers’ suggestion. During translation period,\r\nthe teachers appreciated their enthusiasm. However, some\r\nfactors from the members need overcoming because of lack of Buddhism\r\nknowledge. Mr. Le Van Duoc cites some examples to learn from\r\nediting experience. He advised that members should\r\nlisten to Dharma talks to enhance the quality of\r\ntranslations. In order to exchange experience conveniently, he proposed a\r\nFacebook page of the group for experience exchange. With same desire of\r\ntranslation improvement, Mr. Quoc Dung advised that members should refer to\r\nMandarin Chinese â€“ Vietnamese dictionary. Because all translations\r\nnot only exact, but also appropriate Vietnamese.

At last, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Dao had wishes of New Year\r\nand grateful words of merit to the group. Hoang Phap pagoda is built with goal\r\nas the name: Propagation. The task of the group will contribute\r\nto the common goal on a large scale. Therefore Vietnam’s Buddhism\r\nintegrates into Buddhism of the world. At the end of meeting, on behalf of the\r\nAbbot, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Dao gave Dharma gifts and invited them\r\nwith a vegetarian lunch.
