On the occasion of this charity trip, the Senior Venerable\r\nassumed that happiness is not so far away that we cannot attain. The happiness\r\nis very simple and it is always around us. People sometimes don’t recognize it.\r\nThey are just absorbed in finding happiness in mediocre pleasures, instant\r\ndelights of sense or they wheedle themselves by useless amusements.

\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

The house of happiness cannot  be built by\r\n"material of sufferings" and the good future cannot  be\r\n shaped  by dark thoughts

\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

We are just happy when we were born in a perfect  human\r\nbody; we are healthy; we can  stand on our feet, look at life through our\r\nown eyes and live with our relatives.

\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

Through the story of Augulimala’s life, the Senior Venerable\r\nexpressed deep sympathy to the students: being human, everybody makes mistakes\r\nat times. Scars of life remind us that we should be careful in life, so as not\r\nto  get bogged down in the mire; not to wallow in the mud of sin. Also, it\r\nhelps us to be of sound mind to evildoer’s sweet talk. The most important thing\r\nis repentance and improving our behavior. Owing to that, people can get rid of\r\ninferiority complex and forget the sinful past so as to reach a bright future.

\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

Finally, the Senior Venerable sent a message of Buddha’s\r\ncompassion and wisdom on the occasion of United Nations Vesak Day this year.\r\nThe Senior Ven. hope that students will be determined to do well in the course\r\nand observe the rules and regulations of the center so that they can get back\r\nto daily life  soon, and they will  become useful people for their\r\nfamily and the nation.

\r\n\r\n

 After the Senior Ven.’s talk, in the performance ,\r\nJunior Venerable Thich Tam Truong sang songs about parents in the  hope\r\nthat students always think of their parents and relatives who are always\r\nconcerned and looking forward to their fine returning.
