The 79th Seven-Day Retreat

Update: 11/05/2015
Hoang Phap Pagoda organized the 79th Seven-Day Retreat (from May 10th to May 17th 2015) with attending around two thousand local and foreign Buddhists on May 10th 2015 (Lunar March 22nd Goat Year).

The 79th Seven-Day Retreat


At the hall areas in the morning of the first retreat day,\r\nBuddhists were guided the basic demeanors such as walking, standing, lying,\r\nsitting, prostrating, ceremonies of worshipping, or fixed accommodation, lunch,\r\nand listening areas by Monks.

In the evening of the same day, Senior Ven. Thich Chan Tinh\r\n– Hoang Phap Pagoda’s abbot, head of retreat organization visited the hall and\r\nshared the regulations to all Buddhists.

Besides, in the lecture he also answered the inquires of\r\nBuddhists about Tran Tam’s problems, who transmitted dharma in Cambodia\r\nand there are some Vietnamese Buddhists attending.

Tran Tam is not a Buddhist monk. Before, he was taught by\r\nIndian master’s doctrine being taught the “Quin Yin” method (the same as\r\nMs. Chin Hai). He did neither commit to Triratna with any Buddhist monks, nor\r\nembrace Buddhist precepts. He was just self-cultivated, self-shaved, and he\r\ndressed himself as a monk.

The practice discipline  was propagated by\r\nTran Tam focusing on the help of God. Throughout the articles and lectures\r\non his private websites, he used Buddhology nouns to explain such as causal\r\nprinciple, Karma etc.; however, he presented wrongly and was not like Saddharma.\r\nThe main purpose was heading to ask God for grace in order to set free.\r\nBesides, he defied, libeled the monks when saying that no one in this world\r\npracticed Saddharma.

We can understand everything that Tran Tam expressed just to\r\nappreciate himself and guide people to superstition, underdevelopment,\r\ncompletely leading Buddhists to wrong Buddha’s teaching in the canons.

Learners should have a good looking at the Saddharma,\r\nbut should not let yourself and your relatives have false notion or believe in\r\ncheating people. The Senior Ven. presented these matters not because of\r\njealousy but due to some of Buddhists’s asking for explaining clearly so that\r\ntheir relatives could understand this matter clearer.

His lecture was closed in the Buddhists’ happiness. They officially\r\nstarted entering the 79th retreat.
