Accepting the request from the venerable monks of Buddhagaya Bana Vihara, Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh, accompanied by the monks and Buddhists of Ba Vang Pagoda, participated in the night Kathina weaving ceremony at Buddhagaya Bana Vihara on November 24, 2023. The ceremony saw the presence of revered monks from Bangladesh, India, Thailand, Australia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tibet, and Laos.

Herein, Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh delivered a short Dharma talk about a verse in the Dhammapada for the monks and Buddhists present in the celebration.

“To avoid all evil

To cultivate good

And to cleanse one's mind

That is the teaching of all Buddhas.”

Thay encouraged the Buddhists to diligently practice good deeds as the Buddha taught to gain good merits.

Following the teachings of the Buddha and the guidance of Thay, the Buddhists conducted a good action right at the celebration. Specifically, they offered Atthaparikkhara as well as wove Kathina throughout the night to make offerings to the monks. Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh delightedly praised their enthusiastic devotion for the Three Jewels.

Below are some images recorded:
