AsiaConceptBuddhism; Who are we by Viet Van Tran

Reality I also can’t explain this matter , beginning is the meeting and rather interesting talk with a monk at an exhibition about Buddhism at Ha Noi, 2005.

Why am I deluded, attracted by the theme of Buddhism?   

Reality I also can’t explain this matter , beginning is the meeting and rather interesting talk with a monk at an exhibition about Buddhism at Ha Noi, 2005.  After that because of work ( I’m a journalist) , had many chances to visit many pagodas, the more curious of “religion” world of   monks.

A world with part of closed tightly but the person outside seems to be difficult to penetrate into it. From the way of living, activities and  used language daily , monks also have a system of own learning letters  , such as    “eat “ is  “thọ trai”, “sleep” is “lâm thụy”, from “Buddha Amitabha” means multi meanings : both to greet , and to inquire…

Viet Van Tran1

Buddhism was introduced into Vietnam from very early , just from early AD . When entered into Vietnam , Buddhism was linked with the local religions such as: divine worship at temple,  worship Mother at district to create a Buddhist background not original …  Following statistics of Vietnam Buddhism , presently there are 45 million VN followers took refuge in the Buddha, there are 839 units of Buddhist families , and about 44,498 Buddhist monks and nuns , more than 14,775 pagodas , institutions, Buddhist monastery…

One in the factors made many VN persons to choose Buddhism to worship because it explaind the person’s mysery by samsara theory , and teaches persons how to live completely to enjoy present time . Buddhism is a religion of peace.

Viet Van Tran2

My project “Dharma and Life” started from 2006 and exhibited three times at Viet Nam and Singapore. This series named “Who are we” belong to “Dharma and Life” project. But it is a concept images very different far from documentary images in three parts before.During my journey, I have met many monks, chatting and photographing them.

I had the close look at  the faces of monks and realized a  thing. The boundary between Dharma and life is very fragile. “Greed, Hatred and Delusion” is great obstacle, which all of monks have to overcome on their path to Buddha.. And I look back at my own face. Look deeply to understand myself clearly , to know my limit. And try to answere the old question: Who are we, Where do we come from,  Where are we going,  in my private way.

Disorientation and loss of contact with the outside world put us into a physical and mental isolation and can lead us — in a conscious or subconscious way — to modify our relationship with the external reality.This maze slowly conducts us into a mental illness.
