Tay Thien, a land that its name itself has many spiritual meanings. It is no accident that the ancient practitioners chose this place to practice. What made Tay Thien in the Tran dynasty become one of the profound Buddhist centers, besides Yen Tu and Dong Trieu? This is the place where the West Indian monks practice, so this land is the memorial of the first congregation from India to Vietnam propaganda. It also may be because of the sacramental confinement that the early cultivators have established that people still chant, or because this land was the birthplace of Lang Thi Tieu – Tay Thien National Mother, from the high mountain forests to the legendary that vibrate mountains and rivers.
