In 2007, a newspaper published a series of articles “Sacred objects of the To Lich River” with many thrilling information about the fortification in this river and especially about the “legendaries” about Venerable Thich Vien Thanh (abbot of this river). Perfume Pagoda before).

The story of “Sacred objects of To Lich river”

According to this newspaper, in September 2001, construction team No. 12, VIC Construction Company, led by Mr. Nguyen Hung Cuong, was dredging the To Lich river in An Phu village, Nghia Do ward, district. Cau Giay, Hanoi has discovered very strange ancient relics. Those are 7 trees buried standing in the river bed, forming a regular polygon. There were sets of skeletons that were nailed to the shoulder blades and buried among wooden stakes.

In addition, they also discovered the golden heart wood with the bagua, some pottery, elephant bones, horses, knives, copper coins… Then, the group of workers pulled those wooden stakes up and took the sets. The remains are buried at Bat Bat cemetery, Ha Tay.

The article spread the story of the sacred object of Song To Lich.

At that time, the Hanoi Museum invited a number of historical and archaeological scientists to the scene to examine. The conference took place in December 2001 with the presence of leading experts and scientists in history and archaeology to make scientific judgments. Leaders of VIC Construction Joint Venture Corporation also attended.

At the 2001 conference, Professor Tran Quoc Vuong (at that time Professor Vuong was still in the world) hypothesized that the construction site was at the western gate of La Thanh, the western gate of the Imperial Citadel… Previously, the Imperial Citadel gate In addition to soldiers, there are gods who guard the 4 gates (Thang Long four towns) and have charms or sacrifices.

According to Prof. Vuong, the phenomenon of having a sand strip about 200 m long is different from other river sections, possibly in the Ly Dynasty. Because the confluence of the To and Nhue rivers changed the flow of the To river. Therefore, the stratigraphy here is condensing sand into a strip.

“The coincidence between the phenomenon of the To River being eroded by changing currents and the king’s eyes being hurt has created a ceremony to cover up, including human skeletons and other artifacts?”, Prof. Vuong asked. subject.

Agreeing with the above view, Assoc. Dr. Do Van Ninh said that this is one of the only 6 surviving “goons” that are quite clear and reliable to study about other citadel that have been mentioned and recorded in some ancient maps.

After that conference, authorities, experts and scientists were no longer interested. Everything thought to be closed, suddenly a newspaper recently re-published mysterious stories related to the above river through the words of Mr. Nguyen Hung Cuong.

According to Mr. Cuong in the newspaper, not only the risks of construction participants, but also the deaths of some famous figures such as Professor Tran Quoc Vuong and Mr. Most Venerable Thich Vien Thanh also related to the mystery of To Lich River.

The death of Venerable Thich Vien Member is also said by Mr. Nguyen Hung Cuong to be related to the mystery of the To Lich River.

I turn my mind to the Buddha of the Perfume Pagoda, Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva

Nguyen Hung Cuong’s story on the newspaper is as follows: “In November 2001, thanks to active advocacy, I was able to invite Venerable Thich Vien Thanh from Huong Pagoda to perform an offering ceremony for me at the scene. As soon as he arrived at the scene, he sat down and closed his eyes and recited Buddha’s name. For a while, the teacher stood up and said: This is a very dangerous cover-up formation; Therefore, the master’s disciples will set up a forum of reconciliation. After that, he set up an altar at the riverbank to neutralize the security. After the ceremony, Master Thich Vien Thanh told everyone: “Although I tried to neutralize it, you have to be careful, and Cuong has to suffer many consequences, and his family, children and grandchildren are also in trouble.” Then sadly, the teacher said: “Because of this piano, my life is also difficult to keep”. Three months later, Master Thich Vien Thanh Hoa. The disciples said that he died because of a cover-up in the To Lich River.”

This story by Mr. Nguyen Hung Cuong created an irresistible wave of public opinion at that time. So what is the truth about the story called “The Sacred Treasure of To Lich River”?

About the passing away of Venerable Thich Vien Thanh

Most Venerable Thich Vien Thanh At that time, he was the abbot of Huong Tich pagoda. The Venerable Master follows the Tantric practice, favoring recitation of mantras. In particular, Venerable Vien Thanh is knowledgeable about the spell “Thach point paint the head”. According to Buddhist theory, this spell is often used for rituals of entering the house, taking rocks to cover the core places, making ghosts and spirits unable to come and disturb. Perhaps, because the Venerable passed away early, leaving many surprises and regrets for Buddhists and Sangha, Nguyen Hung Cuong relied on that to explain in his story?

As confirmed by the true disciple of the Most Venerable Thich Vien Thanh – Venerable Thich Minh Hien – Deputy Head of the Culture Department of the Central Committee of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha at that time said that Venerable Thich Vien Thanh had never set foot there. which is considered the location of “the holy object on the To Lich river”.

After the Construction Team No. 12 sent people to invite him to come to protect him many times, Most Venerable Thich Vien Thanh sent a number of disciples to worship the six paths, that is, to all living beings in the river area to make peace for the souls residing there. But offering sentient beings is a very regular job of all temples and pagodas, including the electric doors of the houses of teachers in the world. Therefore, many people can also understand that Venerable Thich Vien Vien passed away because he had set up an altar to neutralize the defensive map in the To Lich river section.

There are many anecdotes about fortification on the To Lich River.

Some disciples of Venerable Thich Vien Thanh all said that at the moment of his death, the Master did not say anything about the defensive formation in that river, the newspapers at that time reported.

Most Venerable Thich Vien Member passed away because he had finished his karma and had lost his predestined relationship with the sa Ba realm. The Venerable ends this life to be reborn in another samsara. That’s the rule, once it’s over, it can’t be held back. Attributing the Venerable’s death to a cause attributed to “Holy objects” on the To Lich River is not consistent with Buddhist philosophy.

Venerable Thich Vien Thanh – Portrait of the Enlightened One

Even a monk who is majestic even to an evil god must submit to them

The Buddha’s door is compassionate and equanimous, always saving sentient beings. According to Buddhist teachings, the three realms (heaven, yang and the underworld) besides Buddha, there are 96 forms of gods, including tree gods, earth gods, water gods, good gods, evil gods, and even evil gods.

Among those 96 types of gods, 25 types of gods are selected who always support the Three Jewels and support the Buddha – Dharma – Sangha. Therefore, supposing that Venerable Thich Vien Thanh would come or send his disciples to set up an exorcism, the saints and gods would also have to be afraid of that boundless magic power, but it would be impossible for “things” to have the opposite appearance. , the majesty and power of the Buddhist monks.

Assuming if Most Venerable Thich Vien Thanh If there is a real river section, what the Venerable Master does is just universally saving sentient beings. That is a good thing, bringing blessings to sentient beings, then according to spirituality, doing good deeds will lead to true cultivation, higher virtue, more brightness…
