Vietnamese Buddhist Association – spiritual support for OVs in Japan

The Vietnamese Buddhist Association in Japan has so far served as a spiritual support for Vietnamese studying, working and living in Japan.

The remark was made by nun Thích Tâm Trí, head of the association, at a ceremony at Dai An pagoda, Honjo city, Saitama prefecture on November 18 launching its 117-member executive board and 25-member standing board for the 2018-2023 tenure. 

The association will continue to guide Vietnamese in Japan to practise Buddhism in line with the Charter of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS), Vietnamese and Japanese laws and its regulations, she said.

Established in 2011, the association has organised Buddhist activities in the four main pagodas of Nishikutsu and Tinh Tan Hamamatsu in Tokyo, Dai An in Saitama prefecture and Phuoc Hue in Aichi prefecture.

It has also launched volunteer programmes in support of victims of natural disasters in both Japan and Vietnam. 

Of note, since 2012, the association has held requiems for more than 80 Vietnamese who were killed in Japan and Vietnamese martyrs, and seminars on Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos.
