Repentance Ceremony.

Before this ceremony, it was the Dharma talked by Junior\r\nVenerable Thich Tam Nguyen on the topic “How to repay filial piety to parents?”\r\nFrom his topic, according to Buddhism, “filial piety” is emotional sense as\r\nwell as children’s behavior to their parents. Children’s duty must carry out\r\nentire theirs that is the responsibility and tradition of Vietnamese people.

\r\n\r\n

When parents are still alive, children must respect and take\r\ncare, not only provide completely material needs, but also care their parents’\r\nspirit and do not upset them. When they are sick, the children must be\r\nconcerned to  them more enthusiastically, more carefully.

\r\n\r\n

Take care of their spiritual life, counsel them to arises\r\nkindness, create blessing, practice the right path, make them deeply believe in\r\nthe cause and effect law, escape from superstitious cycles, samsara karma,\r\nachieve peace in the present and the future.

\r\n\r\n

In addition, expatriate children for living life or for\r\ndistant marriage couples must regularly visit their parents because pious\r\nchildren are spiritually tonic medicine scale mental health and increase\r\nlongevity parents.

\r\n\r\n

Nourishing their children, they don’t think their children\r\nrepay them in the future. However, sonny must always remember to repay\r\ngratitude. Children are not only care to fulfill the parents material and\r\nspiritual but also know to preserve moral life, not to do enhancing their health and longevity.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

Being parents, few think of their repayment for themselves,\r\nbut it is children’s duty that compensates their gratitude.

\r\n\r\n

Not only do children have physically and mentally good care\r\nfor their parents but they also preserve their ethic life. Do not cause\r\nsuffering to ourselves and other. We always profoundly remember our parents’\r\ngrace so as to find way to repay. Because:

\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n
“You do not let be back home someday
\r\n\r\n
To the  quiet, empty house without a  mother
\r\n\r\n
‘Cause green weed covered on grave
\r\n\r\n
And a golden stick of incense is not enough for her child’s\r\nrepentance”
\r\n\r\n

After the lecture, Buddhists were happy and started the\r\nrepentance ceremony.
