Tan Dieu pagoda is a legitimate worshipping place of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) in Long An province. The pagoda has been granted the land use rights by the provincial authorities in the name of Mr. Nguyễn Công Nhân. Over the past years, Mr. Nguyễn Công Nhân and his collaborators managed the pagoda and arbitrarily changed the name of the pagoda into “Tan Dieu Zen Buddhism” without permission from the provincial VBS and district authorities.
In addition, Mr. Công Nhân has also built several facilities in the land of Tan Dieu pagoda.
Therefore, the inspection team has checked the law observance related land, construction by Tan Dieu pagoda and Mr. Nguyễn Công Nhân, and will recommend administrative measures based inspection results in the coming week.
