New heads of pagodas in Truong Sa appointed

The Executive Board of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) in the south-central coastal province of Khanh Hoa has held a ceremony announcing decisions on the appointment of heads of six pagodas in Truong Sa island district.

The six establishments are on Truong Sa Dong, Song Tu Tay, Sinh Ton Dong, Truong Sa Lon, Phan Vinh, and Nam Yet.

Khanh Hoa’s Buddhist information and communication board on January 6 cited Most Venerable Thich Minh Thong as saying at the ceremony that border residents have a limited material, spiritual and religious life due to geographical difficulties.

He asked the new heads of the pagodas to make every effort to complete their assigned tasks.

Khanh Hoa is home to nine pagodas located on islands of Truong Sa district./.
