Sing for peace

Buddhists are praying at Amitabha Pura Festival in Vietnam's pagoda. This festival annually held. This is a practice that deepens our orientation to dharma, evoking the wisdom and blessings of the Pure Land for all in our world to live in peace and harmony. The love and practice of orienting to the enlightened state of Buddha Amitabha (Awakened, Measureless Light) is one that is beloved in all of the Mahayana Buddhist countries such as Vietnam, Tibet, China, Japan, Korea.
