    Background: The Buddhists of South Vietnam's Chau Doc province have staged their annual pilgrimage to the mountains of Nui Sam. For three days several thousand pilgrims prayed for peace and prosperity.

    Despite the insecurity caused by the war, pilgrims came from many parts of Chau Doc province.

    Almost all Buddhists in the province belong to the Hoa Hoa sect.

    during the three days they sang songs and danced in accordance with the Hoa Hoa customs.

    Most of their prayers and chants were centred on the oze topic -- peace and prosperity.

    Pilgrims crowded the narrow streets of the city, patronising the many stalls that had been set up to sell food and trinkets.

    The Buddhists of Chau Doc firmly believe that peace time living conditions will be better than those of the war.
