1_OnNguyenHanhI hope the Retreat of Awakening will help maintain and cultivate the Buddhist roots of young adults, so they do not lose Buddhism and Buddhism does not lose them. And I hope for Buddhism, in this country, to sustain a bright future with their contributions.

– Most Venerable Thich Nguyen Hanh

Most Venerable Thich Nguyen Hanh's Letter, 2012


tntLife is truly precious. Let’s live each moment in mindfulness so that our life is more meaningful.

Most Venerable Thich Hanh Tuan

In Memory of the Late Most Venerable Thích Hạnh Tuấn (1956-2015)



1_ThayTuLucI hope all Vietnamese youths can preserve the cultural traditions and “live happily, healthy, and peacefully” in the loving spirit of Buddhism.

Venerable Thich Tu Luc




If we practice well enough, we can see tremendous change in our life which benefits those around us.   Change begins inside ourselves.

Venerable Thich Dao Quang
