After that, based on the invitation from Ms. LÆ°u Thị Mỹ Hà, Director of Vietnam-Korea Cultural Centre, the group has got a visit to the Centre and met with the Vietnamese Buddhists here. During the preaching, Venerable Thích Chân Tính has stated that instead of begging for helps from any super-natural power and entrusting our lives to bad/good lucks, we should emphasize our believes in Cause and Effect Rule, create good deeds, especially ten good deeds (daÅ›akuÅ›alakarmāṇi - including  not killing, not theft, not adultery, not to say untrue, not talking double-edged way, not bad words, avoid saying something not beneficial, not lusting, non-hatred, not involving in foolery). The preaching has been followed by Q&A session with questions as : how to overcome the lust, hatred, foolery in situations? Or which preparations for kids to become a monk/nun?

After the Talk, the group has come to Seoul by subway to visit Cảnh Phúc Palace and joined the annual Lantern Festival which has been celebrated during Vesak. This is a cultural tradition of South Korean. Not only the native people but also lots of foreign monks/nuns/Buddhists have joined this colorful festival in cheers and peace.
