Tết's Dharma Mountain, Valley Center, California, U.S

We are very happy to share the newal moments of Dharma Mountain to celebrate the Lunar New Year – 2022. Inside the mountainous and forests space, where we gather together to celebrate the traditional Lunar New Year. The peaceful moments with cultural - religious identity, be applied reserved for further transformation to integrate and harmonize to develop a strong community in the context of the United States of America.


When we know the value of tradition, we also know the benefits of applying it to life and sublimating the spiritual life in the flow of cultural transformation. The quintessential application of the applied philosophy of interacting with society is the inspiration and crystalline substance for the Applied Buddhism Movement. When you touch something with deep awareness, also you are touching everything. Indeed, such a reality, is expressed through performing spiritual rituals, practice meditation, Dharma talk along with enjoying Tết's culture. The Ancient tradition renewed and applied by Thầy Thich Giac Chinh.


Starting the series of Tết holidays, we have been together to set up the ceremony of holding the traditional flag of Cây Nêu, on the flag is the meaning of Dharma, to honor the noble protection of the Three Jewels and honor the Ancestors @ Dharma Mountain and Forest Meditation.

Master Thich Giac Chinh raised carry of the flag to walking meditation on the area where the main meditation hall will be built at Dharma Mountain.

Tết is a cultural activity with a valuable interaction with the social life that takes place in the Asian American community. In terms of connecting and preserving the noble and beautiful cultural values, this activity also brings the value of transformation to adapt and renew in the application process in the context of the American homeland. An experience that feels real, simple and pure, as a gift of high humanity with poetic meaning in Tết holidays, simple but with the value of connection, in the spirit of application, we have felt peace and happiness.

Just as mindfulness meditation, with walking meditation you just focus on walking and breathing, living with your own breath. Practitioners of walking meditation are well-informed with your own breath, step-wise, slow-moving, steady, with a happy smile and a peaceful heart.

In the spirit of preserving and promoting cultural values, our community has adopted the spirit of combining traditional values with applied philosophy, which has been renewed and applied by spiritual teacher Thich Giac Chinh.

Thầy Thich Giac Chinh had a very short Dharma talk. It was like an applied word, and at the same time a meaningful poem that implied transformation: Practical applications, as a poetic gift of benefits that we can feel and spread to around our lives or at work as reminders of practicing mindfulness and apply to life.

Cultural values have been renewed and applied to create a crystalline substance in cultural diversity, which is the second generation in the community who were born in America, although some are not born in the United States, but they were Asian American; that makes our country alive and brings the value of the profound contribution to the identity of Americanism.
