Update: 16/03/2021

One-day Retreat for Youth

 

After registering  for all participants in the morning, monks guided them to the lecture hall to participate in the activity. Finishing chanting the sutra, the participants heard a dharma talk from Junior Thich Tam An with the theme “I am wrong".

Before listening to Dhamma, the monk instructed the participants to practice in meditation. Then, he preached  that we often tend to blame others and never accept responsibility for ourselves. By his three stories, he encouraged them to practice saying thank when they received something and saying sorry when unintentionally hurting people. Let us recognize mistakes and correct them, and do the right actions. Therefore, we will be people who are steadfast, successful in life.

After spending a few meditative minutes and entertainment in the afternoon, the learners listened to a speech by Mr Nguyen Thanh Nhan, the director of ATY Asia Pacific Company, shared about Gratitude. We received a lot of great grace in this world, but we have been indifferent and dissatisfied with our parents and people around because of our selfishness. He recounted touching stories about the sacrifice of parents as well as the omission of a child. In addition, he also mentioned their stubbornness in words and actions that hurt others. Finally, he taught them how to show gratitude to their parents and everyone.

After that, the students had a  exchange program with singer Quach Tuan Du.

Before leaving, the participants were given dharma gifts, including the book named East and west stories (part 1) and other gifts.

The retreat ended in the joy of participants.
