Mitreya The first thing visitors will encounter is the Thuyen Bat Nha (Prajna Paramitta Boat), resting at the main entrance of the pagoda. According to Buddhist theory, it is a boat navigated by Mitreya Buddha to carry persons of great righteousness and generosity across the ocean of misery after death.
