Bac Lieu Buddhists celebrate capital’s birthday

QĐND – Thursday, July 29, 2010, 20:39 (GMT+7)

A Buddhist Festival was held in the Mekong delta province of Bac Lieu on July 28 as part of activities by Buddhists nationwide to celebrate the millennial anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.

The festival drew the participation of provincial authorities, the committee of religious affairs, local people and more than 300 monks and nuns.

Superior Bonze Thich Quang Thiet, Deputy Chief of the Executive Board of the Bac Lieu Buddhist Shangha, delivered a welcome speech to open the festival. In his speech, he recalled the merits of King Ly Thai To and his advisors, as well as monks, in maintaining national peace and integrity.

Buddhist pagodas and temples have recently held activities to celebrate the capital city’s 1,000th birthday and have organized requiems for the former kings of the Ly family and monks of that time.

On the occasion the Bac Lieu Buddhist Association organized a ceremony to mark the birthday of the Goddess of Mercy and open the 2010 Goddess of Mercy camp, drawing thousands of Buddhist followers. The camp will be open until July 30.
