“After 40 years, it was only now that I can hold my alms bowl for receiving alms,” shared Most Venerable Kim Do Won, the abbot of Daeseong Temple when he went on an alms round with Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh and the monks of Ba Vang Pagoda.

During his Dharma propagation trip in South Korea, Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh and the delegation paid a visit to Daeseong Temple, Daegu City, South Korea. Herein, they were warmly welcomed by Most Venerable Kim Do Won, the abbot of the temple. He shared his immediate sense of closeness and friendliness upon meeting Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh for the first time.

On the campus of Daeseong Temple, he joined with Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh and the monks of Ba Vang Pagoda in an alms round to receive the offerings of expatriate Buddhists in South Korea, and the local citizens.

All participants were filled with joy while making offerings to the monks. Ban Ki Hyeon, from the city of Cheongju, shared: “I can see the smiles on all participants' faces. When we made offerings to the monks with complete honesty and respect, we felt extremely happy. I hope that our sincere wishes will yield good results.”

The alms round ceremony concluded successfully, spreading the tradition of Buddhist mendicancy to everyone attending and watching the event regardless of nationality and religion. Hopefully, with these good deeds, the good wishes of the Vietnamese people, Vietnamese Buddhists, and the Korean people participating in the session will be fulfilled.

Mendicancy benefits both givers and recipients; therefore, it is precious and noble.
