The Cao Dai Tay Ninh Church in the southern province of Tay Ninh began its grand ritual “Hoi Yen Dieu Tri Cung”, one of the two most important festivals of Cao Dai dignitaries and followers, on September 27.

“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 enables them to achieve their goal of liberating themselves from the cycle of birth and death.

This year’s two-day event attracted representatives from the Government’s Committee for Religious Affairs and local authorities; religious organisations from Japan, Taiwan (China), Malaysia and Singapore; and tens of thousands of followers and people across the country.

It included worshipping and peace praying ceremonies and gift presentations to children.-VNA
