The 8th Nikāya Retreat

 

Before the retreat, practitioners performed the rituals as paying homage to Three Jewels, announcing rules; Junior Thich Minh Thanh, Abbot of Linh Quy Phap An had some encouragement to the ashram.

Life changes impermanent to old age, tears, decay along with many unexpected unsatisfactory things, people become insecure and miserable. The Senior pointed out four Noble Truths: the Suffering, Cause of Suffering, the Cessation of Suffering, and the Path leading to the Cessation of Suffering.

Suffering arises when six senses come into contact with six objects and then rise to anger, craving, and attachment. If a person does not have the practice, constantly reflecting on the body and mind, it is easy to create sins.

We must practice looking deeply into suffering to see causes of suffering, the arising and suffering, seeing the suffering caused by the ego, and learning how to let go, leave, and detach from greed.

Next, the mass was divided into small groups to identify five aggregates under the guidance of the monk.

The mass practice awareness and contemplation on precepts of killing. Each person shared their deep feelings of hearts about what they have seen and heard, verifying their own cause and effect so that we can realize the suffering brought by killing, stay away from killing, give up killing, practicing cultivating and vegetarianism forever.

Clear awareness of what we have created, the practitioners sincerely carry out the repentance for the debt from previous life and practice spreading great loving-kindness.
