One-Day Peaceful Retreat at Dang Phap Pagoda, Binh Phuoc

 

At 8:30 a.m., Junior Thich Tam Chieu guided Buddhists to come to the main hall, begin the practice of Buddha recitation and walking meditation. Next, in the morning ‘s Dharma session, Junior Thich Tam Huong, the Abbot of Suoi Phap pagoda taught "Every day is a pleasure".

In daily life, we often have many different emotions. Sometimes, it is happy, sometimes sad, or feeling into a deadlock situation. All those negative or positive emotions will affect our daily life if we are manipulated by them. In the Buddhist perspective, both positive and negative emotions come from within our mind. If the mind thinks of wholesome things and does good deeds, the mind is happy; otherwise, the mind that thinks of unwholesome things and does unwholesome deeds followed by suffering. Every day, Buddhists should live in awareness, mindfulness, and create joy for themselves by keeping their body, speech, and mind pure, not letting them be polluted. Why? Cultivation is correcting, correcting mistakes into right, suffering into joy, bondage and liberation. People who wish to be happy for themselves must think positively first, then have a good and noble mind. In the Dhammapada Sutra (291), the Buddha taught:

Who so for self wants happiness

  by causing others pain,

 entangled in anger's tangles

 one's from anger never free.

People who live a life of awareness, mindfulness, often guarding, control six senses, not being infected by six-sense objects, control and manage the mind so that it doesn't let loose, in doing so our living will have more joy, happiness and life more sublimated.

After the Dharma talk, all Buddhists gather about the dining room, and have lunch.

Afternoon is the time to practice Buddha recitation and year-end summaries. The organizers acknowledge the opinions of Buddhists about the shortcomings in the retreats last year.

The day ended in the joy of the mass.
