Opening this ceremony, it was the Dharma talk charged by the\r\npagoda’s monks. Junior Ven. Thich Tam Danh preached the topic: “Seven typical\r\nkinds of human” in Water Example sutra (Seven Dharma chapter, Agama Majjhima\r\nsutra ) as following:

\r\n\r\n
1. Human who always is in the water.
\r\n\r\n
2. Human who emerges from the water then sank again.
\r\n\r\n
3. Human who emerges from the water then stands.
\r\n\r\n
4. Human who emerges the water then stands, stands and\r\nlooked around.
\r\n\r\n
5. Human that escaped the water then stands, stands and\r\nlooked around, then swims across.
\r\n\r\n
6. Human that escaped the water then stands, stands and\r\nlooked around, then swims across reaching opposite bank.
\r\n\r\n
7. Human that escaped the water then stands, stands and\r\nlooked around, then swims across reaching opposite bank; reaching opposite bank\r\nto be callBrahmacarin standing on the bank.
\r\n\r\n

He interpreted clearly and displayed detail examples of each\r\nhuman that mentioned above. In the cultivation life, all of us who always wish\r\nto have a happy and peaceful living at present and future. However, there were\r\nsome obstacles preventing our cultivation practice. A right Buddhist who\r\nexactly understands the Buddha’s teachings leads the entire enlightenment\r\ndeliverance, releases completely our miseries and troubles. When we apply our\r\nbelief to the Triratna, study dharma and practice the Buddha‘s teachings, we\r\nwould attain the enlightenment in the future.

\r\n\r\n

After the lecture, Buddhists started the repentance ceremony\r\nand chanted five precepts.
