The legends and majestic beauty of the sacred Yen Tu Mountain have been honoured by La Figaro newspaper (France) in an article titled "Voyage au long cours: Yen Tu, l'âme du Vietnam éternel" (Long-distance journey: Yen Tu, the eternal soul of Vietnam), published on May 6.

Yen Tu appears in Le Figaro newspaper (France).

The article states: “Perched in the mists of Vietnamese history, the sacred mountain of Yen Tu unfolds its mysteries, woven with legends and spirituality. Located in the northeast of Vietnam, at more than 1,000 meters above sea level, this land maintains the breath of the divine and the echoes of a glorious dynasty.”

The third king of the Tran dynasty, Tran Nhan Tong, was a wise king who made many contributions to the prosperous development of Dai Viet at the end of the 13th century, the work of protecting the country and expanding the territory.

But King Tran Nhan Tong gave up the throne to pursue the path of Buddhism. In Yen Tu, the Buddha founded the Truc Lam Zen sect in the 13th century, marking the birth of Vietnamese Zen Buddhism.

To this day, the story of renouncing the throne and devoting oneself to cultivating a religion to build a life, harmoniously fusing Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism into a Zen lineage that still inspires pilgrims and cross-visitors in finding the meaning of happiness.

Also, according to Le Figaro newspaper, at the top of the towering mountain, the echo of the bell at Dong Pagoda is a sound with the power to cleanse the soul from afflictions and listen deeply to the depths of one's mind.
