Dear to the honor of near-far lay Buddhists and readers.
It is a great graceful condition for us to know the website of Phap Nhan Tu Hoc (Dhamma Cakkhu).  Phap Nhan, its Pali is Dhamma Cakkhu,  Dhamma means (Dharma) the Buddha’s teachings, Cakkhu means eye. Dhamma Cakkhu is the eye of Dharma that helps practitioners to lead a peaceful and happy life for themselves and for others in daily life and helps them to practice morality in this life.
Thich Trung Sy is many readers’ favorite, because he has posted his diverse writings in abundant electronic web pages. We are fortunate to have learned the Dharma of the Buddha through these articles.

On occasion, I (Hanh Minh) have a grace condition to read these writings through the pen of the Venerable Thich Trung Sy, I (Hanh Minh) pleased to introduce to you all the articles  that have been posted on the electronic home pages such as: Ancient Forest Temple  (, Quang Duc (, Buddhism Today (, (, Buddhists in Vietnam ( ), Pho Quang (, Phu Sa (, Hoa Sen Library (, Magazine of Enlightenment (, Phuc Lam Pagoda (, Beauty of Dharma ( and many web sites, blogs, forums have posted the Venerable Thich Trung Sy’s writings.

The quintessence is taken from the excellent works those he has spent so much effort to write about the Buddha’s teachings, for example, Education of Meditation Concentration, Topic Presentation on Zen Meditation and so on ... These Zen topics are very insightful and helpful for those who want to study and practice meditation. Or in the writing "The Buddha - the Embodiment of Peace," Thich Trung Sy writes history of Buddha to the readers in order to know more about The Good Master Sakyamuni.

Especially, the Buddha’s teachings taught for nearly 3000 years have been reflected in the honest, clever, and practical words in daily life through the pen of Thich Trung Sy for recent years. If you have some time to see more, please visit the websites such as:
These websites have been established with videos, slide shows, images, and the works of Venerable Thich Trung Sy. You will enjoy these articles through many various styles and forms. In topics of spring, he has composed five works very well, and spring flower in people’s heart likes to be watered every day more beautifully and fragrantly. Spring heart is so marvelous as he expresses optimism and joy through the works of The Eternal Spring, The Happy Spring, and The Peaceful Spring.
Especially through the work "Looking the Spring Through the Contemplative Eye", he has described the formation of a human life from birth to hundreds of years old in a very new masterpiece. His words and examples of some verses make readers into the idea of ​​a gentle and peaceful stage in each spring ages.
Just last year, Thich Trung Sy posted “The Compassion Spring” to inspire for the loving kindness in the heart of each person. As in the article  The Buddha - the Embodiment of Peace”, a part written about the Buddha’s Birth that He stepped on seven lotus and self-confidently said "all living beings have their Buddha-nature" which means that all beings have Buddha nature, compassion; so he wrote this Compassion Spring for everyone in order to practice loving kindness, and compassion oneself more and more.
A peculiarity in his writings and poetry is that four immeasurable mind (kindness, compassion, appreciative joy, equanimity) are mentioned. Thanks to wear of a Buddhist monk’s robe (Kasaya), all of his works, poems, speeches, articles etc ... are estimated to suggest that everyone never does evil, but always does good, and to remind each of us to together light up the torch of love, together light up that of peace and together tighten brotherhood and sisterhood to bring joyful tranquility and happiness to oneself and the others right in this life.” (quoted in " The Buddha-the Embodiment of Peace. ")

When Buddha's teachings are spread all over the world, all beings still understand deeply in His Right Dharma. Thanks to this, Thich Trung Sy writes the great topic of "The Specific Characteristics of the Sea in the Buddha Dharma.” In this article, we not only understand and absorb the Buddha’s Dharma more but also we practice these simple and practical methods as Thich Trung Sy writes in the conclusion of this article: Understanding, applying and practicing the specific characteristics  of the Buddha Dharma  in our daily lives diligently and mindfully, we can bring peacefulness and happiness to the many, and at the same time, we can also contribute to building a realm of Heaven and Pure Land right here in the world.
Indeed, we all have the seeds of Bodhi in our minds, but sometimes we are obscured by suffering, or ignorance. Thus, in " Mac Giang-flowery Substance in His Poems ", Thich Trung Sy leads us to know and learn more about the pseudonym of the Poet Mac Giang. In addition, he further analyzes very beautifully about a poem, “The ethical flowers” of Mac Giang and Thich Trung Sy not only makes the poem more meaningful, but also more flexible for the readers.

This article has been profound and more attention by Thich Trung Sy. Thanks to his compassionate heart and natural mind, at the end of this article, he composes a poem, “Flowers of loving-kindness and compassion” with ten verses:

The ethical flowers penetrate into the mind,
Flowers of loving-kindness and compassion are fully filled with mountains and rivers.
Each of us is each of poet,
Offering the world sweet-delicious flowers and fruits.
Although tomorrow is far away from thousands of the route,
We are forever the Buddha’s spiritual children,
Bringing the light of loving-kindness and compassion to the Dharma Path,
Bringing love to spread over all directions.
Though arduousness and miserableness know how to look,
Our steadiness is that we can overcome all.

In this site, there is an article, "What You Need to Know Before You Study Abroad at University of Delhi in India" ( Through reading this article, I (Hanh Minh) understand much more things to learn, to select thesis and to know learning conditions for students, etc. ...
