The 2nd India Buddhism Culture Day in Vietnam will be organized at Thien An Pagoda in Vinh Phuc province from Thursday to Sunday.

The event celebrates 45 years of diplomatic ties and 10 years of comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries. Most Venerable Thich Duc Thien, Secretary General of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha's Executive Council, told a press conference in Hanoi Monday that the culture day will feature ceremonies performed by Gyalwang Drukpa, head of the Drukpa Lineage, and nearly 100 Buddhist monks and nuns from India.

On the occasion, Gyalwang Drukpa will present the Sangha with an embroidery 11.7 metres wide and 16 metres long. The first India Buddhism Culture Day was held at Phat Tich Pagoda in the northern province of Bac Ninh in 2014.
