One-Day Practice

 

After having breakfast, all Buddhists came to the lecture halls of Dharma Wheel Building to listen to a Dharma talk by Most Chekinda, Rector of the International Theravada Buddhist Missionary University on the occasion of the delegation visiting and exchanging Buddhist culture at Hoang Phap Pagoda.

The Master and the Myanmar Sangha had a short chanting session, praying for peace to the retreat's practitioners before beginning the Dharma talk. Then, the Master gave advice to the mass. There are four happy things in life, such as: having wealth, position; use wealth for the right purpose; not in debt; be free from bondage. All these four happiness can be divided into two types: material happiness and inner one. By the way, the Master taught methods for happiness that anyone can practice and achieve. Then, he spent 30 minutes answering questions from practitioners in the study and practice.

After the Master preaching, Junior Thich Tam Duc, Deputy Head of propagation Department of Vietnamese Buddhist Sangha in Ho Chi Minh City, residing at Hue Nghiem Giang Tu - Phu Nhuan District, Ho Chi Minh City came  to the lecture hall to share a dharma lesson in the topic "Have we understood yet each other?"

Everyone likes to listen to soft, sweet words, but they give harsh and bitter words to the person they love, because of that, many people today are lured into the nefarious tricks of imperfect guys. It is not easy to recognize the wholesome - unwholesome, or good - bad in life by outward words, but it takes a long journey of contact to realize the true intentions of each person.

As a Buddhist, we need to be wise when identifying a certain problem, especially with regard to the Buddha's teachings:

- Have you understood the Buddha's teaching? When you do not clearly understand the methods and teachings of the Buddha, we should not judge, especially when using social networks. This is a very good means to transfer Buddhism to the mass, but it is also a double-edged sword if users are not mindful and alert enough to judge right and wrong. The more modern technology is, the more sophisticated and dangerous the cutting technique is, making it easy for the audience to misunderstand, leading to defamation of Three Jewels.

- When we read the sutras without learning the teachings in the commentaries, it is easy to go astray. The essence of the Dharma has not changed, but depending on the environment and circumstances we perceive it differently. The Buddhist scriptures have deep meanings, and it is not easy for beginners to understand the meaning. So, when listening to the Dharma, what we understand, we will apply and practice; If there are any unclear points, leave it alone, slowly study and ponder, should not defame and lose the good  causes on the path of deliverance, which is very unfortunate. Dharma learners should respect the scriptures, read and recite carefully, and do not rush to judge when we do not understand the Buddha's teachings.

Likewise, most of us do not understand each other's inner voices that cause all the obstacles and troubles in life; or even the incomprehensions of samsara.

Finishing the Dharma, the mass had many more valuable lessons as necessary wisdom on the path of practice, good behavior in life.

After reciting the Buddha name in the afternoon, Buddhists practiced sitting meditation quietly.

Before leaving, Buddhists received book gifts named Lessons for Buddhists, Pureland of peaceful Part.
