The excellent artworks on display at the exhibitions are all of high cultural and spiritual values, contributing to providing domestic and international visitors with a better insight into Vietnamese culture and Vietnamese Buddhist culture.

In particular, the organising committee lit seven lotuses on Tam Chuc Lake, a sacred symbol marking the seven pure steps of the Buddha when he appeared in life for peace and the happiness of humanity.
