Truc Lam Dai Giac Zen monastery

Sapa corner

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Truc Lam Dai Giac Zen monastery is the first Buddhist monastery in Sapa, built in 2015. It stands on a hill on Dien Bien Phu Street. This monastery belongs to the Truc Lam Yen Tu Zen sect.

The main hall of the monastery is spacious, with a simple design. There is a big Shakyamuni Buddha statue in the center of the hall. The Buddha holds a lotus in his right hand with a gentle smile. Besides the Buddha statue are the statues of Manjushri – the Bodhisattva of wisdom, and Samantabhadra – the Bodhisattva of kindness. This hall is where the monks, and nuns in the monastery, along with other Buddhists, practice sitting meditation.

I prefer to visit the monastery in the afternoon. Sitting in the main hall, looking at the Buddha statue, and enjoying the stillness around bring peace to my heart.

To me, Truc Lam Dai Giac Zen monastery is not only a spiritual site, but also a tranquil corner in Sapa for everyone to come. I really relish my time here.

Have a peaceful day.

With peace,

An An
