The advent of Shakyamuni Buddha into this world was not for any other purpose than to liberate suffering and bring happiness to all beings. Therefore, after enlightenment, he spent his life expounding the Dharma that leads beings to happiness, including the practice of alms-giving, which helps the offerers “after the end of life, to be reborn in a happy destination, in the heavens. But if instead, he comes back to the human state, then wherever he is reborn he is wealthy.” (The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha, The Shorter Exposition of Action)

Understanding the immense merit and blessings of almsgiving to Buddhist monks, people sincerely prepared food offerings and offered them to Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh and venerable monks during the Vesak celebration at Ba Vang Pagoda on May 12, 2024.

Hopefully, all the good aspirations of everyone will be fulfilled thanks to this good deed. May the Buddha Dharma be long-lasting in the world so that all beings may find peace and happiness from it.

“He who offers to those worthy of offerings, Buddhas or their disciples, Who transcends fruitless debates, Has overcome grief and lamentation, The merit of him who offers, such peaceful and fearless Ones cannot be measured by anyone as such and such.” — The Dhammapada

Households, one alms bowl. Miles of solitude, Bowls of great blessings For men and devas. (Song: Alms round - bowls of blessings)

With beautiful flowers and pure food in hand, young students in the Rahula club happily waited for the moment when they could offer them to the monks.

Alms round is the true life-sustaining method that the Buddha taught his ordained disciples in the Sangha. Whats more, it helps eliminate unwholesome qualities, cultivate virtues, and live a life full of wisdom.

Ordained, seek sage path, Blessing bowls for all, For beings sake preach, Dharma rids false views.” (Song: Alms round - bowls of blessings)

How happy it is as the small children have a chance to give alms to the monks.
