UN Vesak celebrations begin in Hanoi

The much awaited United Nations Day of Vesak celebrations in Vietnam which began today were an amazing spectacle of religious and ritual festivity at Hanoi, with thousands of Buddhists from the world over gathering at the Capital’s National Convention Center to spread Buddha’s message of peace, love and harmony.

Over 600 Buddhist delegations consisting of about 5,000 representatives from 90 countries will meet during the three-day Conference, the biggest ever Buddhist international event in Buddhism’s over 2000 year’s long history in Vietnam.
