Quang Ninh, Vietnam – A delegation of four Monks from Chusang Monastery visited Ba Vang Pagoda as part of their trip to Vietnam. On behalf of the Sangha, Venerable Thich Truc Bao Luc guided the group through the Pagoda. Beforehand, the delegation joined a Sutra chanting section together and paid homage to Buddhas in the Main Hall of the Pagoda.
During the visit, the delegation had the chance to listen to the history of Ba Vang Pagoda as well as Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh – the Abbot, who, with contributions of Buddhists throughout the country, has turned an old small wooden Pagoda into the large and picturesque Pagoda that we see today.
“We are happy and honored to visit this place. Ba Vang Pagoda is such a big place. Thank you very much for the warm welcome. Hopefully, I will get back to Ba Vang Pagoda in the nearest future.”, Chhusang Rinpoche shared with us.
At the end of the visit, representatives of both sides gave each other meaningful presents as souvenirs and symbols of hope for a long-lasting friendship.
