Tay Ninh (VNA) – Millions of Cao Dai followers and visitors nationwide flocked to the Cao Dai Tay Ninh Church in Hoa Thanh district, the southern province of Tay Ninh, to attend “Hoi Yen Dieu Tri Cung”, the biggest festival of the sect.

“Hoi Yen Dieu Tri Cung” is a great religious banquet for the Great Mother and nine female immortals of the Dieu Tri Palace (Jasper Pond Palace) held annually on the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month.

Cao Dai followers believe the banquet implies a practice that enables them to achieve their goal of liberating themselves from the cycle of birth and death.

Cao Dai followers displayed over 90 trays of fruit and food at the Temple of the Great Mother to pray for favourable weather, a peaceful and prosperous country and happy people.

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Ngoc extended the best wishes for Cao Dai Church, dignitaries and followers.

He called for Cao Dai dignitaries and followers to support each other and join hands in the nation building cause.-VNA
