Festival dedicated to Bodhisattva opens in Bac Lieu
Update: Apr 22, 2014
A festival dedicated to Quan Am (Bodhisattva) Nam Hai opened at the Statue of Bodhisattva area in the Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu on April 21.

As one of the four festivals recognised by the provincial People’s Committee in 2008, the festival annually takes place from the 22nd to 24th day of the third lunar month.

This year’s event is drawing a great number of visitors as it coincides with a national festival featuring the UNESCO-recognised performing art of Don ca tai tu (amateur singing).

The province has recently completed and put into use a number of works at the Statue of Bodhisattva area to serve Buddhist followers’ practices.
