First Buddhist supermarket opens in HCM City

LookAtVietnam - Providing vegetarian food, plus Buddhist clothes, flowers, and objects of worship, Phap Hoa Buddhism Supermarket opened at HCM City's Pho Quang pagoda on May 15.

A representative of HCM City Buddhist Shangha explained that this is the first Buddhist supermarket in HCM City and the biggest one in Vietnam located inside a pagoda's grounds.

Huynh Long Ngoc Diep, the supermarket's managing director, advised that prices are always the same or cheaper than outside shops. Profits will be used for charity.

The supermarket displays and sells products made by monasteries in HCM City.

It also has a studio named Mani Media Buddhism to record and shoot films about Buddhist activities and presentations by senior monks.
