Bon Temple is an ancient temple dating over hundred years and was once a scenic spot in Dien Chau. Passing time and the ravages of two wars, the temple has been degraded; up to now it is only the mound of the old temple foundation.

Meeting sufficient conditions, the pagoda has had the guidance of a young monk, the support of the Director Board, the help of local government and devoted Buddhists. Besides, with the approval and witness of Senior Ven. Thich Chan Tinh, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Due was officially undertaken at the Bon Temple.

The ceremony was attended with the presence of Senior Ven. Thich Chan Tinh, Abbot of Hoang Phap Pagoda; Junior Thich Tam Thanh, Member of the Central Propagation Board of Viet Nam Buddhist Sangha/ VBS, Chief Secretary of Director Board/ DB, Head of Information and Communication of the VBS in Nghe An province, Abbot of Co Am Pagoda, Dien Chau district, and Phuc Lac pagoda, Nghi Loc district; Junior Thich Minh Hai, Deputy Secretary and Chief of the Secretariat of the VBS, Nghe An province, Head of An Thai pagoda, Quynh Luu district; Besides, there are the standing monk of VBS in districts, towns, cities, the abbot of temples inside and outside the province and the branches of Hoang Phap pagoda.

On the government side, there were presence Mr. Phan Xuan Vinh, Member of the Standing Committee of District Party Committee, Vice Chairman of Dien Chau District People's Committee/ PC; Mr. Le Manh Hien, Vice Chairman of Dien Chau District PC; Mr. Tran Xuan Hai, Deputy Head of the Public Relation Department of Dien Chau district; Mr. Duong Minh Kien, Deputy Head of Department of Economic and Infrastructure of Dien Chau district; Mr. Nguyen Quoc Khanh, Secretary of Party Committee, Chairman of Dien Hong Commune People's Council/ PCou.; Mr. Nguyen Hong Trung, Chairman of Dien Hong Commune PC; Ms. Nguyen Thi Huong, Chairman of Fatherland Front Committee of Dien Hong commune. Besides, there are Mr. Pham Van Luong - Director of Nam Thuan Garment Company and Donors inside and outside the province.

During the ceremony, Senior Ven. Thich Chan Tinh had some reminders to the abbot about the future propagation.  The purpose and aspiration of the monk is "Needing the superiors, salve interiors" never be distracted dominantly on the path and forget the monk's ideal. Abbot is like a boatman who takes guests across the river, does not mourn and sticks to anything and always settles in the middle of the two sides of ignorance and enlightenment. Arrogance and selfishness are the bad omen of cultivators. Ones, who humbly respect people, will receive love and assistance from fellow brothers and Buddhists.
