Prime Minister presents meaningful gifts to Truong Sa

QĐND – Thursday, June 10, 2010, 20:59 (GMT+7)

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has decided to present meaningful gifts to the Truong Sa Islands.

In his visit to Myanmar, from April 2nd to 4th, the Prime Minister was presented with two jade Buddhas from the World Buddhist Shangha and a Buddha’s sarira (sariras are relics , though it usually refers to a kind of pearl or crystal – like bead – shaped objects that are purportedly found among the cremated  ashes of Buddhist spiritual masters) from the Council of Shwedagon Pagoda.

The Prime Minister then decided to represent these gifts to Vietnam Buddhist Shangha.

However, the Prime Minister recommended that these two jade Buddhas should be placed at Song Tu Tay and Truong Sa Lon Islands in Truong Sa Archipelago, said Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Head of the Governmental Office yesterday.

“These are meaningful gifts from the World Buddhist Shangha and Myanmar’s Shwedagon Pagoda. The two jade Buddhas, which will be placed in the islands in Truong Sa, are also very meaningful to confirm Vietnam’s sovereignty on the area,” Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc said.

According to Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung also asked Vietnam Buddhist Shangha to help extend his thanks to the World Buddhist Shangha.
