The Central Executive Council has advised its local committees, pagodas, Buddhist institutions nationwide not to hold rituals, parades or art shows that gather more than 20 people, in line with the Government’s regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.

The VBS said three bells will ring in unison on the morning of the 30th day of the fourth lunar month at offices of Buddhist committees at all levels, pagodas and Buddhist institutions across the country.

At the same time, Buddhist followers nationwide will also perform rituals to pray for the nation during this difficult period./.
