Theravada Buddhism in Vietnam

Le Hong Linh

Abstract: Buddhism came to Vietnam in the 1st century CE. Before the second's over century[1], Vietnam built up a noteworthy Buddhist focus in the area, generally known as the Luy Lau focus, presently in the Bac Ninh region, north of the present Hanoi city. Luy Lau was the capital of Giao Ch?, the previous name of Vietnam, and was a most loved spot visited by numerous Indian Buddhist evangelist priests on their approach to China, following the ocean course from the Indian sub-mainland by Indian brokers. A few Mahayana sutras and the Agamas were converted into Chinese contents at that middle, including the Sutra of Forty Two Chapters, the Anapanasati, the Vessantara-Jataka, the Milinda-panha, and so forth
