Photographer's Note

Kshitigarbha is a bodhisattva in Buddhist religion. Although he became a grand Buddha but he didn't want to live in Buddhist heaven, he pledged to live in the hell forever to help souls.
You know, Guangyin don't want to live in Buddhist heaven because she wants to help people in the world, Kshitigarbha wants to live in the hell to save souls. That's why people love two these Buddhas very much, except Buddha Gautama is the first and the grandest Buddha in Buddhist religion.
You can see 4 main Buddhist statues in pagoda.The first is Buddha Gautama and 3 grand Buddhas are Guangyin, Maytreya and Kshitigarbha.
In Buddhist religion, a Buddhist holiday is held on the 15th of the 7th month of the lunar calendar. That is Kshitigarbha holiday and souls in hell are absolved, they can live in the world on the 7th month of the lunar calendar. In Vietnam, they call it "Cτ hồn" month and "Vu Lan" holiday. It is rather like Halloween. They also give cakes, sweets, fruits to children.
When you visit pagoda at this day, you will get a red rose if your mother still live and a white rose if your mother was died.
It's Vu Lan.
