Repentant Ceremony at Minh Chat ashram in Can Tho

 

On the evening of April 24th, 2021 (on March 13, LC), monks and Buddhists chanted repentance sutra of Liang-Wu-Ti. On April 25th, 2021 (lunar March 14th, LC), after the time of Surangama mantra, walking of meditation, reciting Buddha's name, Mr. Eric Arthur Saunders, a British national, led the mass to recite Buddha's name. Next, the mass listened to a dharma talk preached by Junior Thich Tam Khuyen with the theme “Buddha.”

“How difficult it is to be a human,

 How difficult it is to be alive,

 How hard it is to listen to dharma,

 The Buddha being born in life is the most difficult!"

 (Dhammapada 182)

- "It is difficult to be a human being", it is not easy to be born as a human, so we need to diligently do many good deeds.

 - "The living of sentient beings is very difficult", because they must take daily doing to maintain their living.

 - "Listening to the dharma is more difficult", because it's not easy to find someone who speaks the dharma, it is difficult to find that one.

 - "Meeting the Buddha is born is extremely difficult, because we have to practice enough dharma with great diligence.

Although one can listen to the dharma, it takes thousands of years to go through, it is also impossible to meet the Blessed One that appears in life.

After that, Junior Thich Tam Hue and Buddhists went to Mrs Tran Thi Hoa's house, Ninh Kieu, Can Tho City. Her family has a  daughter with breast cancer, a son who has been paralyzed for 41 years. The delegation provided 3,000,000 VND to her family to ease her difficulty.

In the afternoon, the Buddha's recitation rites were led by Mr. Oh Seung Wan of Korean nationality. Next, it is the session of sitting meditation and chanting precepts. This occasion, monks gave dharma gifts to the family of Mr. Eric Arthur Saunders and Mr. Oh Sung Chan's family with instructions on how to recite the Buddha's name.

At night, monks and Buddhists had a penitential session as usual. Before beginning the rite, Junior Thich Tam Hue preached a dharma talk with the topic of Good Day, Good Month.

Buddhism is the true religion, preaches causes and effects. The Buddha said, Bhikkhus: "In the morning, the one who does good deeds, says good words, has good thoughts, that one has a good morning; Next, in the afternoon, the one who does good deeds, says good words and has good thoughts, that one has a afternoon of good. Last, in the evening, the one who does good deeds, says good words and has good thoughts, that one will have an  evening of good. Therefore, every day, every month will be good, if we do all good deeds; On contrary, if the day, or any months we do bad things, that will be a bad day, a bad month.

After the Dharma talk, the monks and Buddhists were at the time chanting confession sutra.
