The Executive Board of the Hai Duong provincial Buddhist Sangha and the Management Unit of Con Son – Kiep Bac Relics co-organized a ceremony on September 27 evening to seat a statue of Avalokitesvara.

As planned, after the seating of the jade Buddha statue, the inauguration ceremony of an Avalokitesvara worshipping house is to take place on October 2 (i.e. the 16th day of the 8th lunar month) at Con Son pagoda.

The statue of Avalokitesvara meditatively sitting on a lotus support is made of nephrite, four tons in weight, and 1.75 m in height.

After more than three years of construction, the completion of the worshipping house and the jade Buddha statue has contributed to completing statue and relic systems at Con Son pagoda.
