The monks shared some necessary things for those intending to study abroad, differences to note about the culture of countries when studying abroad or traveling through experiences from Junior Thich Tam Tien. With a few words of confidence from Junior Thich Khai Tuan, the students learned experiences to overcome obstacles and difficulties when starting a business. He opened up about the method of creating positive energy in life with compassion, aiming to benefit others. These help the young get closer to people, reach their dreams, and succeed in the future. With a witty and friendly narrative style, Junior Thich Tam Truong created a lively and meaningful tea meditation night for the attendees.

Junior Thich Khai Tuan personally mixed rice paper, inviting young people to enjoy the special flavor of "Buddhist Cuisine" in the relationship between master and student after the tea meditation session.

Over 3,200 students from colleges and universities inside and outside Ho Chi Minh City returned to Hoang Phap Pagoda to attend One Day Retreat for Students on Dec. 3rd, 2023.

At 5 a.m, a meditation sitting session started with cool weather in the morning instructed by Junior Thich Dao Tin and monks at the pagoda.

At 7 a.m, the mass chanted Eight-thing and Compassion Sutra, then sat quietly.

At 09:00, the students listened to a Dharma talk “Where have you been?”, preached by Junior Thich Tam Tien, Bachelor of Buddhist University in Thailand - Master of Naropa Religious Philosophy, USA - Doctoral student at Boston University, USA.

+ We are the continuation of our parents in every cell, every blood vessel including the inheritance of thoughts, beliefs,... from our ancestors in the past.

+ We are present together ...

+ We will be present in the future in the continuity of the bloodline of descendants.

Each individual not only has blood ancestors but also spiritual ancestors, namely the Buddha and Three Jewels. We will inherit, be the ones who guide and pass on to the next generations a good, happy, and noble life. Therefore, each person must try to build for itself a life of awareness and goodness. How can we be fully present in the present? When life is tiring, stop negative thoughts and suffering by practicing Buddha's teachings, being mindful, practicing reducing ego, creating for ourselves a source of positive energy within, nurturing love for everyone.

Listeners have the opportunity to look back and orient themselves to a life of awareness, goodness, and happiness after the Dharma talk.

Young people interacted with guest Miss Universe Vietnam 2019 - Nguyen Tran Khanh Van in the inspirational program 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐩.

She shared about her motivation to overcome difficulties, achieve success, along with her connected causes with Buddhism, and experiences applying Buddha's teachings to work in daily life. On this occasion, she wants to spread to the young positive energies from volunteer work and the firm belief in Three Jewels. The important factor that creates beauty in an individual that Khanh Van wants to remind young attendees is the heart always aims for the good of "a nice appearance from a good heart". With an honest and noble soul, it will create a lovely and peaceful person, contributing significantly to all success in life.

Khanh Van interacted and answered young people's questions about life issues and transforming the body and mind after the sharing part.

The day of practice ended with the joy of the young. Before leaving, the organizers gave each of them a Dharma book gift named Life Is Dedication compiled by Most Thich Chan Tinh.
