Dai Dang is not an ordinary monastery, but it has been recognized as the learning
and practicing center of Vietnamese Buddhist Meditation Congregation, under the leadership
of Zen Master Thich Thanh Tu (officially in Sept. 2001). The formation of Dai Dang
monastery has brought much of benefits to Buddhists: their research, learning, practicing,
and affiliation. For a short time, it has made a significant achievement even though
the path is still long.
If you have a chance to visit the monastery, you definitely will feel impressive with
its scenery. It's quite peaceful and refreshing, compare to the crowded city environment.
Its daily schedule is based on the daily schedule of Truc Lam monastery at Da Lat
As we all know, in the future, Dai Dang will continue its functions and activities,
while the sangha will continue their mission of bringing benefits to all people and
propagating Vietnamese Zen.
Sangha: 25+ monks
