Taking refuge in the Three Jewels is extremely important, marking the time a person officially becomes a Buddhist. From now, all attendees have entered the dharma house, getting a good spiritual path for their life. Therefore, the Refuge Ceremony was held very seriously and took place all day.

After registering in the morning, participants came to the lecture halls to learn right demeanor when they come to the pagoda, such as the manner of clasping their hands, greeting, prostrating, etc,... these are very necessary and important rules, because not everyone has also conditions to learn these rules. Next, Junior Thich Tam Duoc guided and explained thoroughly the purpose, meaning of Three Refuge and the law of causes and effects by five precepts. He analyzed and explained each precept in five rules of lay people and the necessary knowledge to become a Buddhist.

In the afternoon, the ceremony officially took place under the witness of all Sangha at the pagoda. On behalf of monks, Most Thich Chan Tinh transferred Three refuge and Five Precepts for all attendees. Next, the Most had some instruction and encouragement words to new Buddhists.

The Venerable Master talked about the importance of keeping one's precepts to escape samsara. When becoming a disciple of the Buddha, the Master advised Buddhists to take advantage of time going to the temple to practice and study the Dharma which transforms suffering and pain in bodies and minds. He clearly explained the misunderstandings in vegetarianism and precepts, and talked about the benefits of vegetarianism. In addition, every family should have a Buddha altar to remember the Buddha's merits every day, grow faith in the Three Jewels, and practice following Buddha's teaching so that life is always meaningful and happy.

Along with receiving Three refuge, obeying Five precepts of Buddhists is very significant. Thanks to this, we will have the personality of a true Buddhist. Five precepts, five basic moral principles will help receivers perfect them and lead their living to a clean and noble life.

The ceremony ended in joy for everyone. Before leaving, Buddhists were given books, such as, Summary of the story of Shakyamuni Buddha, Lessons for Buddhist, Buddha Dharma Saving My Destiny, Three Refuge and Five Precepts, Most Thich Chan Tinh’s advice.
