“I want to compensate for you by the Buddha Dharma, making your mind full of love and wisdom.” — Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh

After visiting Ba Vang Pagoda and listening to the Dharma Talk by Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh for the first time, “Nghị Lực Sống (Resolution to live) – the Center of Enhancing the ability of the disabled”, came back here on the regular retreat (the 14th day of the 11th lunar month).

The center offered a flower basket to the Three Jewels as a way of expressing their admiration. This is such a favourable seed that will bear good fruits in the future.

Responding to their sincerity, Thay shared: “I wish you all love of life. Though you have much more disadvantages than other people, you live in the love of the Center’s teachers and friends around you. You are beloved by everyone. I myself love you so and want to compensate for your disadvantages as much as possible. Though I can do nothing for you physically, I think the Ba Vang community and I can help you mentally. I want to compensate for you by the Buddha Dharma, making your mind full of love and wisdom.”

Touched by Thay’s love, representatives of the Center sent words of gratitude to Him. Hopefully, they will reap a lot of happiness in the present life as well as future lives from their respect for the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.
