In the spirit of gratitude, Hoang Phap Pagoda solemnly celebrated the Great Buddha's Birthday in 2022, Buddhism calendar 2566 with thousands of Buddhist men and women who attended.

At 6 am, three series of drums and the bell was sounded for greeting the monks to enter the stage for starting the rite of incense offering to the Buddha.

Attending this ceremony were the presence of Most Thich Chan Tinh, Head of Hoang Phap Pagoda, Junior Thich Tam Truong, Abbot of Hoang Phap Pagoda, together with the Abbot of facilities belonging to the Hoang Phap sect, pagoda’s monks and Buddhists everywhere.

After having stated the reason and introduced the ceremony, Junior Thich Tam Truong gave a speech on the Vesak and Junior Thich Tam Tri addressed its meaning. 

Giving preaching words in the ceremony, Most Ven. Thich Chan Tinh had a dharma talk to the mass. The Master talked about the rare event when the Buddha was seen as the eyes in the world appearing in life. The  Buddha’s teachings still resonate for thousands of generations, still maintaining an eternal value of wisdom and compassion, as a guideline for those who want to escape suffering and reincarnation.

Telling stories of the Buddha's previous lives, the Master explained in detail about achieving the Blessed One's Perfect Enlightenment. It is necessary to meet the conditions of time, make vows, choose blood relationships, cultivate virtues and conduct to see straight into the truth of impermanent changes in life, grasp the principles of operating all things to let go of attachments, entanglements, clinging. We are grateful to the Buddha by learning to understand and practice His teachings, living fully and peacefully in every moment with mindfulness and alertness, as well as maintaining the Dharma, spreading the Dharma to help many people know about Buddhism, and receiving the benefits that the Dharma brings.

 The mass listened to the bell and verse chanting from Junior Thich Tam Trieu. Continuing the program, the participants spent one minute recalling the Buddha Shakyamuni ’s grace.

Next, monks and Buddhists performed the ritual of offering incense, celebrating the Buddha Birthday and releasing balloons - a symbol of peace and freedom.

After that, the Buddhists gathered at the Dharma-Wheel building to recite the Buddha's name and participate in the competition to Learn about the life of Shakyamuni Buddha. The mass strengthened their known knowledge, as well as learned new things about His life.
