Leading Tibetan Buddhism masters from India and Bhutan are visiting Vietnam for lectures and prayers this month.

Among the delegation is Gyalwa Dokhampa, one of the international regents for Gyalwang Drukpa - head of independent Tibetan Buddhism school Drukpa.

The 32-year-old's April 7-27 will see him lecturing and holding prayers at major pagodas in Hanoi, the nearby Phu Tho and Vinh Phuc Provinces, Hue, Da Nang, and Ho Chi Minh City.

One prayer will be held at Tay Thien, Vietnam's first Vajrayana temple in Vinh Phuc. Vajrayana, also known as Tantric Buddhism, or the Diamond Way ("˜Kim cuong thua' in Vietnamese) subscribes to Buddhist tantric literature.

Gyalwa Dokhampa has visited Vietnam four times before, with several of his teachings published in Vietnamese, including those about the arts of living in peace and contentment.

He works in the mission to bring aspirations and intelligence to young people for a better and happier world.
