A delegation of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS) will travel to India to receive a sari, said to be that of the Lord Buddha, to be brought back to Vietnam early next month.

The treasure-one of the purported relics left over after the physical body of the Buddha was cremated-was a gift from the President of the World Association of Buddhists in India to Vietnamese Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan during her official visit to the country.

The Vice President assigned the VBS to hold a ceremony to receive the sari and convey it to Bai Dinh pagoda-the largest Buddhist pagoda in Vietnam-in the northern province of Ninh Binh.
