Repentance Ceremony Lunar Sep. 14th

 
\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

At 17.45:00 P.M., Buddhists respectfully assembled at the\r\nBuddha and Great Heros Hall to welcome noble Monks who would propagate the\r\nBuddha dharma and perform the repentant ritual. In this preaching, Junior Ven.\r\nThich Tam Nguyen, - Hoang Phap Pagoda’s monk – had a Dharma talk to the mass\r\nwith the theme of “How to release suffering”.  

\r\n\r\n

As human beings, no one could avoid the miseries; this is a\r\ntrue in life of humankind. It is essential to face with and find out the causes\r\nto transform them as well as look for a happy way. 

\r\n\r\n

The major reasons of human miseries are the greed, anger and\r\ndelusion. The lifestyle of wise man is to quit these ones, convert them to\r\nbecome the love and knowledge. People who act on good deeds will find\r\nthemselves an exit, which is the most durable and longest way. 

\r\n\r\n

Practicing the Buddha teachings as “Don’t do any evil,\r\ndiligently do the good, keep the pure mind”, this is the Buddhism’s\r\nquintessence. A person who hope to stop her/his suffering, he or she must have\r\nright view and right thought, as observing correctly, he will do exactly which\r\nis suitable the truth. As a result, he/she is able to avoid away the unhappy\r\nand attaint the peaceful.  

\r\n\r\n

Besides, we must be accustomed to  a habit of\r\noptimistic thought for ourselves, being aware of that life is impermanent,\r\nnon-ego, since then, we will not attach impermanent things. After our\r\nconsciousness is changed, we will not be fluctuated and complained about the\r\nunsatisfied troubles from the life.

\r\n\r\n

The Buddhist who wishes for long happiness and joy needs to  refuge\r\nthe Triratna, keeps close to wise men, studies and practices the Buddha’s\r\nteachings because of “having dharma Buddha, getting suitable method”

\r\n\r\n

After the Dharma talk, good men and believing women\r\nsincerely joined in the Repentance Ceremony and vowed for the five\r\nprecepts of the lay people.
