Having a human body is difficult, meeting a Buddha Dharma is even more difficult, but having good conditions of studying with gentle monks and good friends are the most difficult. Taking refuge in the Three Jewels will help us not to be disoriented in a life of hardships. This is the first step for a practitioner to learn about Buddha. We should not wait until we are old to practice or take refuge, because life is impermanent, and taking refuge at a young age is lucky in Buddhism, what a blessing no one can equal. With the spirit of praying for morality and harmony, the refuge ceremony is the promise of eternal vows for enlightenment, liberation and happiness in this life and forever.

 In the morning, Junior Thich Tam Hung, Abbot of Dong Cao Pagoda guided the mass to meditate on walking. 

In the afternoon, representatives of Buddhists taking refuge in the Three Jewels invited the venerable monks to come to the lecture hall to transmit Three Refuges and Five Precepts. After offering incense to the Buddha, Buddhists had a speech to invite the Sangha to transmit the Dharma precepts. Then, the abbot explained clearly about Three Jewels, Refuge and repentance ... 

Next, the participants were instructed by the monks about repentance, necessary rules when coming to the pagoda before entering the official rite. Finally, the monks gave gifts of Dharma and refuge Certificates to Buddhists.
