Master Viet, Zen Master Van Hanh… All of the Zen masters had the most merit in bringing Buddhism into the government, thanks to the Buddhist thought and morality of inspiring the people of the enlightened monks. contributed to the peace and governance of the country and foreign relations of the Dinh and Le dynasties at that time. Therefore, Ninh Binh can be said to inherit that great cause of the country and the nation over thousands of years of history.
