Learn About the Three Buddhist Paths of Vietnam

March 28, 2012 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,


Sometimes we have questions about life. Why is somebody sad while other ones are happy? How do we escape unhappiness? What does the Karma Wheel mean? Who is the Present Buddha, the Past Buddha, the Future Buddha, Happy Buddha, Lady Buddha? Where is Buddhist Heaven? How do we become enlightened?

Khiri Travel Vietnam will take travelers to visit different monks in temples where varied branches of Buddhist thought are followed. They will find a different view of life – and some answers to difficult questions.

Firstly, we will ride our bicycle to a temple to find out about a Buddhist school of thought called Khat Si (“Ask For”). This is a local Buddhist branch that was created by a Vietnamese monk in 1957. It recommends a way to an enlightened life by walking the streets to ask local people for food. Whatever the local people give the monks, they will have it for lunch. It is their only meal of the day. After listening to the philosophy of Khat Si, as told by a wise monk, you will have time to ask him any questions about your life or anything happening in the world. He will use his Buddhist perspective to explain them.

Secondly, is the Mahayana Buddhist school of thought called “The Great Wheel.” At this pagoda the Mahayan Buddhist monk will welcome you in and explain the Great Wheel philosophy, how to confront problems in life and how to escape from unhappiness.

We then visit a third temple dedicated to the Theravada Buddhist school called the “Small Wheel.”

After three temple visits and discussions with monks you will have a better feeling for the nature of Buddhism and the differences between the three branches of Buddhism as upheld in Vietnam.

On this one-day Buddhist insight tour we ride bicycles to pagodas through green paddy fields and enjoy vegetarian meals. The whole days adds up to an enlightening and unforgettable experience in beautiful, and spiritual, Hoi An.
