Hanoi, Vietnam -- The Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) Central Committee and the Hanoi Buddhist Institute introduced the first issue of “Khuong Viet” Review to the public at a press conference in Hanoi on April 26.

Most Venerable Thich Thanh Tu, Permanent Vice President of the VBS Central Committee and editor-in-chief of “Khuong Viet” Review, told the press that the first issue of Khuong Viet Review was published on the occasion of the 6th National Congress of the VBS.

The quarterly review was named after Buddhist monk Khuong Viet (933-1011), who was a brilliant politician, diplomat, and national security advisor of the country in the 10th century.
