I hope the Retreat of Awakening will help maintain and cultivate the Buddhist roots of young adults, so they do not lose Buddhism and Buddhism does not lose them. And I hope for Buddhism, in this country, to sustain a bright future with their contributions.

I hope all Vietnamese youths can preserve the cultural traditions and “live happily, healthy, and peacefully” in the loving spirit of Buddhism.
