The distinguished thought in Le Thanh Tong's poetry is to build a country governed in peace and order, with an outstanding civilization, taking the man as the center. Although he was Confucianist, its thought has passed through the "Buddhism-ization" and "Taoismization". He considered that Buddhism's "six way" is plenty of love and righteousness; found himself awaken by the method of "clearsightedness"; praised the life in retirement; disregarded merits and fame, wealth and honours of Taoist priests, and wished that his heart was always at ease like Buddha's heart. We can say that the relationship of Three Religions is expressed clearly in Le Thanh Tong's life view and world view, and by this, his ideas penetrated deeply the spiritual life of contemporary broad masses.
