Po Nagar Temple, built during the 8th – 13th centuries in Nha Trang, is an architectural work of art typical of Cham ethnic aesthetics. Situated on Cu Lao hill, next to Cai River in the central coastal town, the temple is a clear reflection of Cham culture. It was built when Hinduism lay at the center of the then Champa Kingdom.
Legend holds that the goddess Yan Po Nagar was sent from heaven to instruct the Champa how to develop agriculture, the kingdom’s main foundation. For this contribution, the goddess was profoundly revered by the people of south-central and Central Highland regions.
Po Nagar Temple historically consisted of three levels, the lowest entrance level having disappeared. The second level, meant to offer pilgrims a place of rest, now only has two rows of pillars left. The final level comprises four hollow towers, all facing north, built of mortarless red bricks. Decorations include ornate terracotta statues that portray the goddess Yan Po Nagar, the god Tenexa, fairies, along with deer, golden geese, and lions. The main tower, at 23 meters in height, is dedicated to the goddess Yan Po Nagar, and includes four storeys covered in statues depicting the goddess and animals.
Its interior holds a black granite statue of Yan Po Nagar, formerly sculpted from gold and agarwood, placed atop a giant lotus bud with her back resting against a large bodhi leaf-shaped rock. Meanwhile, the tower pinnacle is decorated with sculptures showing the supreme god Shiva and many scared animals from Hindu scripture. The remaining three towers are all dedicated to Shiva, along with his two sons Sanhaka and Ganeca. Surrounding the towers are stone inscriptions commemorating Yan Po Nagar, some listing the offerings made by Champa worshippers.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 42.
The claim that machines or robots will steal our jobs has echoed through the decades from the earliest science fiction stories to more realistic developments today in smart electronics, artificial intelligence and automation. The claims that they will usurp millions of jobs may only be partially true, while the exact numbers are something we cannot definitively declare. In fact, the technological changes underway will create more jobs in different sectors if history is any indication.
The question then becomes not whether a robot or Al system will render you obsolete, but whether you will rise to the challenge of learning what it takes to stay relevant and employed. When you become a lifelong learner and focus on continua learning of new, in-demand skills, you claim the power to face the future of work successfully.
Abandon the commonly held notion that learning is for children and young adults. You graduate high school, get a university degree and consider yourself done with education. In the past, this may have been sufficient to land and keep a great job until you retire. But the concept of being a learner has shifted. No more is the concept learn, do, retire. To be agile and adaptable, you need to learn, do, unlearn – learn, do, rest – learn, do, unlearn – repeat. This is the cycle of a lifelong learner.
Modern careers are like nonstop conveyor belts – you need to keep moving and learning no matter what the stage of your career. Being content is a mindset that puts us at risk. Consider how quickly industry, business and technology evolve – this is how our employees get left behind. Instilling lifelong learning ensures talent remains agile, adaptable and ready to fill the next organizational gap.
In today’s work climate, lifelong learning paves the way for current and future success.
In the most basic terms, a lifelong learner is someone who keeps acquiring new skills and capabilities well past their formal education years. It involves not only studying new topics but also developing an open-minded, positive attitude about the dynamic nature of the world. Personal development continues alongside professional development.
A lifelong learner looks for opportunities to expand their knowledge and understanding. While qualifications help with a career, curiosity and a growth mindset invites future possibilities.
