First, Junior Thich Tam Chieu, monks of Hoang Phap Pagoda instructed the mass meditation walking, watching the sunrise, and feeling the peace of mind.

Next, he guided the mass together to offer incense to Bodhisattva Samantabhadra on February 21 of the lunar calendar. The  mass chanted together the ritual of six-sense repentance, reminded five precepts, and performed the rite freeing creatures.

At 9:30 a.m., the mass solemnly listened to a dharma talk titled Firmly believing in Three Jewels, preached by Junior Thich Tam Chieu.

Over one hour preaching, by easy-to -understand language and his own practice experience in the pure-land way accompanied with real stories from daily life, the Junior pointed out the importance of belief in the process of practicing and transforming three karma, makes the body, mind happy and peaceful at present moments, as well as sow good seeds so that it helps to attain Buddha fruit in future. This will give the mass to maintain bodhicitta to face external obstacles.

At 11:00, the mass had lunch in mindfulness.

The practice continued for all participants to feel happiness in the present, and read Sigalovada sutra (teachings on human morality), as well as the Buddha reciting in walking meditation. Then, practitioners gathered together to share peaceful energy and experiences on the day of cultivation.
