Overseas Vietnamese monk visits the country

Updated: 15:32’ - 24/01/2005

The preparations made by the Vietnamese Government and Vietnam Buddhist Sangha to facilitate the visit of a private Buddhist delegation shows Vietnam’s open policy on beliefs and religions, said Vietnamese-French monk Thich Nhat Hanh.

Monk Thich Nhat Hanh, who led a delegation of 100 monks and nuns and 90 followers to visit Vietnam for over three months (Jan. 12-Apr. 14), said his delegation wanted to learn more about the country and to share their ideas with their Vietnamese colleagues.

Receiving the delegation in Hanoi on Jan. 17, Director of the Government Religious Commission Ngo Yen Thi said the Party and State of Vietnam had created favorable conditions for religious followers to practice their religious beliefs.

Vietnamese monks and nuns inside and outside the country have joined Vietnam Buddhist Sangha in national construction and raising the country’s image internationally, Mr. Thi said.

On behalf of the Vietnam Buddhist Church, the Most Venerable Thich Thanh Tu, vice chairman of the Dharma Executive Council and rector of the Vietnam Buddhist Academy, received the delegation, describing the visit as a journey to the roots.

The delegation also met with Buddhists in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hue and Binh Dinh province, and visited many pagodas across the country.-
