Buddhist Wedding of Trương Bích Thúy Vy Violet và Mitchell James Partoglou

Tác bạch lễ Hằng Thuận Cầu An

(do Ba cô dâu Trương Nhị Hưng, đại diện 2 họ tuyên đọc)


Nam mô Bổn Sư Thích Ca Mâu Ni Phật


Kính bạch trên Thượng Tọa chứng minh và cùng chư Tôn Đức


Hôm nay ngày thứ bảy, 8 tháng 4 năm 2017, nhằm ngày 12 tháng 3 năm Đinh Dậu, là ngày lành tháng tốt  mà hai họ chúng con gồm, gia đình đàn trai: ông bà Michael và Lulie Partoglou & gia đình đàn gái là Trương Nhị Hưng và Bùi Thị Vĩnh, cùng nhau quyết định tác lễ thành hôn cho hai cháu : Trương Bích Thúy Vy Violet, pd: Như Thiện , và Mitchell James Partoglou


Kính bạch trên chư tôn đức, do duyên nợ từ trước mà nay hai cháu Violet Thúy Vy và Mitchell đã gặp lại nhau, quen biết, thương yêu nhau và giờ này được phép tác thành phu phụ, từ đây hai cháu sẽ sống chung với nhau, để chia bùi sẻ ngọt với nhau trong cuộc sống, nhưng hạnh phúc lứa đôi có bền chặt lâu dài hay không là điều mà khó ai có thể biết trước được, bổn phận làm cha làm mẹ, chúng con luôn cầu nguyện mười phương chư Phật gia hộ cho hai cháu được sống trong niềm tin Chánh Pháp, sống hạnh phúc lứa đôi, trong mái ấm gia đình cho đến ngày răng long tóc bạc.


Là đệ tử Phật, chúng con hiểu rõ hạnh phúc của con người phát xuất từ sự an tỉnh của nội tâm, sống trong đạo đức, tin sâu giáo lý nhân quả, đem niềm vui đến cho người, mình sẽ được hạnh phúc, tạo sự khổ đau cho người, mình sẽ chịu sự bất hạnh, nên chúng con luôn chánh niệm, tỉnh giác, cẩn thận trong lời nói, trong việc làm, để  vĩnh viễn xa lìa nẽo ác, an trú trong đời sống  thiện lành, thương yêu, tin tưởng lẫn nhau, để sống bên nhau và luôn hướng tâm đến đời sống tâm linh cao thượng và trong sáng.


Hôm nay gia đình hai họ chúng con cùng về Tu Viện Quảng Đức, thành tâm đối trước Phật đài trang nghiêm, cúng dường chút ít tịnh tài tịnh vật nhân lễ hằng thuận cầu an cho hai cháu, ngưỡng mong trên chư Tôn Đức từ bi chứng minh và làm lễ hằng thuận cho hai cháu được hạnh phúc trong Chánh của Đức Như Lai.


Nam Mô Công Đức Lâm Bồ Tát Ma Ha Tát tác đại chứng minh.

Short Dhamma Stories for Kids, It is my great pleasure being able to present a “Short Dhamma Story” for children. I have translated “Punchi Bana Katha” which was written in Sinhalese by the Venerable Welewatte Gunaratana Thero. My main object of this noble work is to develop children’s Dhamma knowledge and moral education. Most Venerable B. Sri Saranankara Adhikarana (Judiciary) Nayaka Maha Thera gave me his fullest support and encouraged me in my present work. So my respectful and sincere heartfelt thanks go to him. My very special thanks also goes to the President, Mr. G. Mervyn Weerasena and all members of the Siri Jayanti Association who pursed on my humble attempt. My special thanks goes to Venerable Welewatte Gunaratana Thero who gave me a proper consent to translate into English his Sinhalese book (Punci Bana Katha).

Buddhist path of liberation is indeed a process of purification of mind. Its preliminary step is found in the training of Sīla, which finds expression through right speech, right actions and right livelihood. The follower mainly to get rid of the mental defilements such as craving, aversion and ignorance practices these three steps of the Noble Eightfold path. It is evident that the wrong speech, wrong actions and wrong livelihood lead to the development of those defilements in the mind. Through the training of conduct (Sīla) most of the rough defilements can be restrained.

I once heard it said of man that the idea is to die young, as late as possible. At age 85, a favorite pastime of George H. W. Bush was firing up his boat, the Fidelity, and opening up the three 300-horsepower engines to fly, joyfully fly across the Atlantic, with the Secret Service boats straining to keep up. At age 90, George H. W. Bush parachuted out of an aircraft and landed on the grounds of St. Ann’s by the Sea in Kennebunkport, Maine, the church where his mom was married and where he worshipped often. Mother liked to say he chose the location just in case the chute didn’t open. In his 90s, he took great delight when his closest pal, James A. Baker, smuggled a bottle of Grey Goose vodka into his hospital room. Apparently it paired well with the steak Baker had delivered from Morton’s.

Smartphone Overuse, Youth Suicide and Buddhism as a Healing Source, Youth suicide is disturbingly rising. Ashley Welch, in her article “What’s behind the rise in youth suicides?” (2017), gave some insights into the trend. The author mentioned potential causes for this trauma and notably pointed to “the correlation between the rising popularity of smartphones and increased rates of suicide and depression among young people” (para. 17). Although Welch did not offer a clear reason for the correlation, this point raises an awareness of an irony. We, as readers, may wonder, “How can such a wonderful entertaining device cause that terrible thing?” In this paper, I will discuss the roots of this pain, and then suggest Buddhism as a healing source.

Why Aren't We Teaching You Mindfulness? AnneMarie Rossi, Founder and CEO of BeMindful Harvard conducted a research study and they tracked more than 1,000 people from birth until age 32 looking for what made someone successful. What common characteristic or trait was seen in a successful individual? It wasn't their race, what language they spoke, what neighborhood they grow up in, or how much money their parents had. It wasn't how well they did on standardized tests or even their IQ. It was self-control; those who were successful, who had good careers, financial stability, loving relationships, and physical health. Those who were successful, were the ones who could focus, pay attention, and regulate their emotions.

The Buddhist community is extremely upset by the inappropriate and disrespectful use of the image of Buddha, The Buddhist community is extremely upset by the inappropriate and disrespectful use of the image of Buddha, in a display at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) entitled the 'Eternity-Buddha in Nirvana, the Dying Gaul, Farnese Hercules, Night, Day, Sartyr and Bacchante, Funerary Genius, Achilles, Persian Soldier Fighting, Dancing Faun, Crouching Aphrodite, Narcisse Couché, Othryades the Spartan Dying, the Fall of Icarus, A River, Milo of Croton'. It can also be seen at: https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/explore/collection/work/131149/ Although this display has been in place for some months, we have only just been made aware of its' existence. We are not usually outspoken, but this display desecrates the image of Buddha by placing images of these mythical images on him and in doing so, showing no apparent regard or respect for Him.

Prior to sharing some thoughts on the question, 'According to 2010 statistics, the number of Buddhists around the world is consistently increasing by approximately 5% to 10% per annum. What do you think are the main causes for this increase?', I should mention that I'm often 'open-mindedly skeptical' about such surveys, and the statistics gathered during such surveys. For where does the information come from and how is the information gathered, and for what purpose, and so on and so forth.
