Buddha’s here for joyful-happiness buds to bloom on Earth. Buddha’s here for the Compassion Flowers to smile in peoples’ hearts.”

Vice-Abbot Senior Venerable Thich Nguyen Tang led 76 Quang Duc’ Buddhists to the 9th Annual Retreat in Bringelly, NSW, 35 kms from Bankstown.  The retreat was managed by Senior Venerable Thich Tam Minh, under the direction of the Congregation.  The seminar participants numbered 324 lay Buddhists, of whom the members from Quang Duc’s Buddhists were the largest group and received recognition from the committee.   The main point was for all Buddhists to put in their effort to always be on time to the classes, for all five days.  They practiced getting up early in the mornings and to staying up late in the evenings for meditation and chanting Suttra.  They asked questions, expecting good answers for their serious learning of the Dharma.  The most important point was that they noticed the calmness within.  Indeed, they earned the merit.  Not everyone could have the chance to attend the retreats, because they don’t have enough merit for the opportunity to occur.  The practice helps people realize the true value of the spiritual life.  It is our hope, to see more members participating in the coming Annual Retreats.

This was the 7th Buddha's birthday, held by the United Nations with the participation of 1,790 members from 70 countries worldwide.  The number of participants was much higher than those in previous years, which could show that Buddhist disciples, are to carry in their hearts, the Buddha’s Teachings and to remember His Birthday always, by discussing and sharing together the daily practices.  To view pictures, click on this link:  http://www.quangduc.com/photo/phatdan/2010/index.html
