1,247 Buddhist nuns and monks will gather for the Great Buddhist Festival to mark the 1000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi scheduled to take place in Hanoi from July 17 to August 2.

In the lead up to the 1000th anniversary of the capital city, the HanoiBuddhistChurch has paid special attention to preserving and developing national cultural identities, particularly the Buddhist culture.

Buddhist institutes have worked closely with the municipal administration and relevant agencies to upgrade and restore historical relics and hold traditional festivals to bring into full play tangible and intangible culture and to celebrate the capital city’s anniversary.

From now through the end of this year, the HanoiBuddhistChurch will accelerate the collection of documents on the capital city’s history of Buddhism. Over the past year, Buddhist followers in Hanoi have raised VND 2.8 billion to support the poor, Agent Orange victims, disadvantaged and handicapped children, elderly people living alone and the families of social policy beneficiaries.

The HanoiBuddhistChurch now has a total of 2,078 monks and nuns, 2,059 Buddhist centres and 29 Buddhist congregations at municipal and district levels.
