Vietnamese Buddhist Origin and Zen Buddhism in Vietnam

Tran Thi Kim Hoa [3]

Abstract: When Buddhism extends to Vietnam, the Dharma is made up of two traditions, the North and the South, tailored to people's moments and capabilities. Southern Tradition (Theravada) emphasizes practical everyday truths and fast self-emancipation, contributing to the Arahats or Pratyek Buddhas' gifts. The Northern Tradition (Mahayana, or Great Vehicle) tells all-encompassing truths and highlights the objective of liberating all sentient beings, contributing to the Tathagatas' full realization. We can clarify how Buddhism has now arrived in Vietnam with the two traditions.
