As usual, the monks will give training to participants, guide them the Buddhist demeanors at the temple, show them the accommodation, the chanting hall, lecture hall on the first day of the course. They also have to learn some rules to behave in the Retreat.

In the afternoon, there’s a talk from Senior Abbot Thich Chan Tinh, also the chief organizer. 

Human life is short and fragile with impermanent changes. There are things we wish, we cannot get; on contrary, we do not want, they still come. When we can still meet, it's a joy, so we need to cherish the moment we are together. During this talk, the Venerable spoke with the mass about the three merits: being a human body with full six sense organs, listening to the Buddha's teachings and meeting monks, good friends, and a pure ashram.

Although there is merit to having a human body, each person will be different in form, living situation, psychological tendencies, wisdom ... This difference is made by cause and effect, karma, and merit of each person, it not be made by any gods' reward or punishment.

From here, Senior emphasized that blessing is an important issue when we are still in samsara as well as how to increase the merit for the future existence. It is not easy to listen to, understand and practice the Dharma. Buddha taught everything is equal, all things operate according to the law of cause and effect, created by themselves, but no one can bring them suffering or happiness; In the end, we can meet a gentle teacher and good friend, the temple practice solemnly, rightly in the righteousness will help us to develop faith, increase understanding, and avoid falling into a wrong religion. By the way, Senior instructed Buddhists to know about the cultivator and the righteous path through the way of keeping precepts, is five basic precepts of Buddhists.
