Party official hails Buddhist Sangha of Vietnam’s national efforts


Ha Thi Khiet, Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation, has praised the Buddhist Sangha of Vietnam (BSV) for its contributions to national development.

Over the course of almost 2000 years of existence in Vietnam, Buddhism has demonstrated that it is a patriotic religion, standing shoulder to shoulder with the Vietnamese nation and people, Khiet said during her meeting with Buddhist dignitaries and monks on May 25.

In addition, Khiet continued, Buddhist monks and followers have organised numerous activities to help disadvantaged people and those affected by natural disasters or disease.

Socio-economic development, security and order, and national sovereignty and solidarity have been strengthened and developed further, partly due to Buddhist monks and followers.

Khiet said she believed that Buddhism will continue its tradition of contributing to a prosperous, democratic, fair and civilised Vietnam.

Most Venerable Thich Thanh Nhieu, Vice Chairman of the BSV, expressed his gratitude to the Party and State for its support for the religion.-VNA
