Greetings from Bat Nha (Prajna) Temple near Bao Loc in Lam Dong
Province, Vietnam. Thay and the Sangha arrived here over a week ago
and, after a three day trip to Da Lat where Thay lived and taught
as a young Dharma Teacher, offered a retreat for lay pracitioners
which is finishing today. We will now have a retreat for monastics,
followed by the Precepts and Lamp Transmission Ceremonies.
This talk is from the lay retreat and is the third talk Thay gave during the retreat. Questions include: How can we continue the practice after Thay and the Sangha leave? What can we do about capital punishment? Can we ordain as monastics, and how do we convince our parents to let us ordain?

thank you so much for these wonderful podcasts - they are wonderful not just for immediate access to the Vietnam Talks but also for the other gems from previous months too.
a lotus to you all
