The Vietnamese Buddhist Association in the Republic of Korea (RoK) held a requiem at Phung An pagoda in Seoul on March 11 to pray for national peace and prosperity.

Hundreds of Vietnamese Buddhist followers including migrant workers, students and members of Vietnam-RoK multicultural families across the RoK were present at the event.

Buddhist nun Thích Nữ Giới Tánh, Chairwoman of the Vietnamese Buddhist Association in the RoK, said the requiem aims to pay tribute to ancestors and soldiers who sacrificed their lives for Vietnam’s national independence and freedom.

She highlighted significant contributions of Vietnamese Buddhist community in the RoK to charitable activities in the host society and the homeland.

At the ceremony, a representative from the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) Central Committee announced a decision to recognise the Vietnamese Buddhist Association in the RoK as a member of the VBS.

The association’s chairwoman pledged to accompany other Vietnamese associations in the RoK to build a strong community of overseas Vietnamese and contribute significantly to the development of the two countries’ relations.

At the end of the requiem, participants offered incense and released flower garlands to commemorate the deceased and prayed for a New Year of peace and prosperity.
