From all directions going the same way
Coming here under the school roof of love
You and I, we are like-minded
Coming back together to build the Sangha love.
VISITING AND MAKING OFFERINGS TO MONASTIC PRACTITIONERS AT HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE IN BUDDHIST STUDIES IN NHA TRANG, KHÁNH HÒA PROVINCE
Namo The Original Master Sakyamuni Buddhaya
Today, Venerable Thích Trừng Tường and Venerable Thích Trừng Sỹ, along with lay devotees have enough good conditions to visit and pay their respects to the Most Venerable Master Thích Minh Thông, Rector of High School and College in Buddhist Studies in Nha Trang City, Khánh Hòa Province, Vietnam.
Between 1990 and 1994, he was a Dharma teacher who taught us the Buddha Dharma when we were Sangha Students. We would like to express deep gratitude to him for his instructing us the programs of Buddhist ethics.
Then, with the Venerable Master’s joy and consent, we continued to visit, make offerings to the Sangha students and Dharma teachers, and to share some words of mindfulness and encouragement for the two classes of monks and nuns. It was really warm in the love of Sisterhood and Brotherhood and Dharma friends of fellow-cultivation.
After ten years and ten days, returning to Vietnam from Austin, Texas, the United States, we took the right time to visit the Temples and pay respects to Masters who are still alive and who passed away. It is the very meaningful trip.
Recollection of Gratitude to the Sangha Jewel
The Sangha of the World-Honored One is the Community traveling on the really good, true, honest, beautiful, and appropriate path;
the Community following the Buddha Dharma practices the Buddha Dharma and lives correctly with the Buddha Dharma.
In the noble Community, there are those who have attained and are attaining the first holy fruition – the stream-enterers, the second holy fruition – the once-returners, the third holy fruition – the non-returners, and the fourth holy fruition – Arahants, comprise four pairs and eight fruitions of holy people, accomplish all aspects of virtue, meditation, wisdom, deliverance, and deliverance with right understanding.
This Community, deserving to be taken refuge in, served, respected, honored, admired, and made offerings to, is the good field of merit for the world to sow and to plant.
