At the invitation of Junior Thich Tam Tinh as the Abbot of Tieu Dao Pagoda, Senior Thich Hien Thien, Vice Director Board (DB) of Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) of Quang Ninh Province, Head of the DB of VBS of Cam Pha City, went to Tieu Dao Pagoda to preach a Dharma talk named "Practice the Buddha's teachings."

The Senior shared that most Vietnamese people go to pagodas according to family tradition. For Buddhist families, going to the temple has become a daily activity. They go to the temple to pray for peace, health, and wish "Buddha bless" for their children's study results, business will be favorable and better and better. Usually, people will go to the temple on the full moon and first day of every lunar month or the time of Buddhist events.

The Venerable taught, Buddhists come to the pagoda not simply to burn incense, make offerings, and chant sutras, because these things are cultivation in the outer form. Cultivation really needs to mend the mind to improve the body, speech, and mind turning good. People who know how to cultivate are different from people in the world, who run after money, beauty, fame, achievement, position, eating, sleeping, and other temptations, ect; then the cultivator is at peace with the spirit 'knowing enough in little desires' to spend time cultivating the mind, realizing the clear and quiet mind, it's called the different with the one in world.

Practicing also has to subdue the thoughts arising in the mind, such as: greed, anger, delusion or seven emotions: joy, anger, love, fear, like, hate and wish to be disturbed inside; then control, restrain and subdue those turbulent thoughts. Let's turn evil into good, ignorance into truth, turn delusion into enlightenment in every minute and second of life. This helps cultivator's personality and morality to be raised to the fullest, which is a practical and effective practice.

Before the end of the lecture, the Venerable Master concluded three main points for the mass to practice, modify and purify the body, speech, and mind so that a practitioner escapes the cycle of birth and death, as well as gain peace and happiness in the present life.

After the Dharma talk, the mass started the penitential rite as usual.
