More than 40 Buddhist nuns from across the U.S. and Vietnam converged in Syracuse last weekend for a special celebration. Here, the nuns walked in procession from the Ngoc Duyen Temple at 518 Prospect Ave. on Syracuse’s North Side.
The Vietnamese Buddhist Community of Syracuse hosted the event, billed as a memorial day for Dien Truong. She was the first Buddhist nun in Vietnam from the Buddhayanna tradition, which was part of a Buddhist revival period that began in the 1920’s.
