About 24% of the earth's landmass is mountainous. There are many famous mountains in the world: Mount Everest in the Himalayas, Mount Fuji in Japan, or Mount Taishan in China.

In Vietnam, there is Fansipan. It is the highest mountain in Vietnam and widely known as “the Roof of Indochina”.

Mountains are often mentioned in Buddhist Sutras as well. The Vulture Peak, or Gijjhakuta, was the place where the Buddha spoke many Mahayana discourses. Mount Sumeru in the Sutras is a giant mountain, which is described to stand in the middle of a small universe.

So, mountains are very familiar to us. If we are perceptive and insightful enough, we can always draw lessons from them. As recorded in the Milindapanha Sutra, Bhikshu Nagasena taught King Milinda five qualities of mountains that he should have. Which are they?

You will soon find the answer in the infographic below, which is the summary of Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh's sermon at Ba Vang Pagoda on 28 November 2020.
