A delegation of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) led by Most Venerable Thich Tri Quang, Deputy Head of the VBS Executive Council, is paying a visit to Cambodia from June 11-13.

At a meeting with the Cambodian Minister of Cults and Religious Affairs Min Khin, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on June 12, the Most Venerable Thich Tri Quang said the VBS delegation’s current visit to Cambodia is to bolster the relationship the Vietnamese and Cambodian peoples have with Buddhism.

Minister Khin briefed the delegation on the development of Buddhism in Cambodia since the country escaped from the genocidal regime of Pol Pot in 1979 with only one monk alive. Cambodia now has more than 4,300 pagodas and almost 60,000 monks.

The country has three Buddhist universities and will soon have a post graduate course in Buddhism, said the Cambodian Minister.

The Most Venerable Quang used the occasion to invite the Great Supreme Patriarch Tep Vong of the Mohanikaya sect and the Supreme Patriarch Bou Kry of the Thomayut Tekanikaya sect to visit Vietnam .

Later the same day, the delegation visited the Supreme Patriarch Tep Vong and the Supreme Patriarch Bou Kry at the Ut Nalom and the Svay Pho Pe Pagodas.-VNA
