CaoDai: Religion of Many Spirits for Professor Ryang, Asian Civilization II
April 11, 1997 When one thinks of the phrase "CaoDai," they will associate it with a political group involved in protest of French rule in Vietnam, if they have ever heard of it at all. In actuality, while CaoDaiists did play a part in these protests, CaoDai is a primarily indigenous Vietnamese religion that encompasses many other world religions but is also extraordinarily unique in its belief system and practices. CaoDai was officially founded through a medium session 1926 by Ngo Van Chieu (a.k.a. Ngo Minh Chieu), an official of the French colonial administration that was widely read in both Eastern and Western religion with a particular interest in spiritism (Ellwood). One of the main points of CaoDaiism can be seen as early as this point in its history: it is a religion not founded by a man like Islam, Christianity, and Buddhism were, but rather by God (Dai Dao) himself. In the past, God has sent His message via prophets and messengers. He sent His word to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel. Before that he gave the world his son Jesus Christ who had a direct communication with God. And after attaining "supreme enlightenment" Sidhartha Sakyamuni (today known as "the" Buddha) gave man the Dharma he could not conceive before (Do 15). However, God saw the violence and hatred throughout the world that not only was not solved by religions founded by people he had sent a message to, but actually because of these religion. This did not sit well with God. So, while practicing a medium session on April 24, 1926, presumably the basket with the beak technique

Cao Dai
Cao Dai is an attempt to create a perfect synthesis of world religions. It is a combination of Christianity, Buddhism , Islam, Confucianism, Hinduism, Geniism, and Taoism . Established in the Southern regions of Vietnam in the early 1920's, the religion was officially codified in 1926. The functioning center of Cao Daism is located in the Tay Ninh province. Cao Dai literally means high tower or palace, a metaphor for the spender of spiritual growth. The central philosophy of Cao Daism pertains to the duty that the faithful perform for themselves, their family, society and the world at large. Much like Confucianism , this element of the Philosophy pertains to how the individual functions within the context of the community. Other elements of Cao Dai philosophy are more clearly influenced by Buddhism and Hinduism. The Cao Dai faithful are expected to renounce materialism in order to more fully cultivate their spiritual growth. Similar to the Buddhist concept of Samsara , the material world is seen as a distraction to the greater goal of enlightenment. Also similar to Buddhist belief is the use of the device of Karma Cao Daism also reflects some of the more ancient belief systems of worship in Vietnam. Believers are expected to worship God, superior spirits, and ancestors. This spiritualism is reminiscent of the

Day trip to the Cao Dai Cathedral
(another story from Michele) Wednesday 10 December 1997 A Trip to Long Than, Tay Ninh Province - 50 miles northwest of Saigon - The site of Cao Daism's pope, administration and holy see. Our Arrival T he first thing you notice about the Cao Dai Cathedral in Long Than is the long road to get there. Both sides of the road are beautifully maintained with tamarind, frangipani, and banana trees. The road reminds you of the scenery leading up to large English Manors you see on PBS.
T hen, you see it. At first you think, NOOO this can't be it! Nothing really looks like this! But it does. First is the entry arch. It is about twenty feet tall and fifty feet wide. The arch has large colorful dragons wrapped about it. Then you see a building about the size and approximate shape of a medium sized Methodist church. If Fantasyland in Disney World had a church, this is what it would look like. It is surreal. The predominant colors are pastels. Yellow, blue, green, and pink. Huge carved lotus blossoms snake around the columns outside the cathedral. The paint looks fresh, as if it had been just painted. The roof is typical pagoda style with red ceramic tiles. There are Chinese symbols of good fortune on the outer front walls. Statues of the revered ones above the symbols. In the center of the entrance where a rose window would be in a Catholic Church, a huge Eye.
W e parked the car and headed toward the Cathedral. We were met by a few of the local kids trying to sell chewing gum, Cokes, postcards. I, trying to be clever, responded to one little boy in French, figuring he probably didn't speak, Vietnamese, English, AND French. Stupid move on my part. He caught me. Moved right into French. So finally I just said NO. He said "Maybe Later?" I said "NO". More on him later.

CAODAISM ("HIGH PALACE"): A VIETNAM-CENTERED RELIGION Click Here to Visit our Sponsors. Dao Cao Dai (Caodaism in English) is the third largest religion in Viet Nam (after Buddhism and Roman Catholicism). "Cao" means "high"; "Dai" means "palace". Caodai refers to the supreme palace where God reigns. The word is also used as God's symbolic name. Caodaism is a syncretistic religion which combines elements from many of the world's main religions, including Buddhism, Confucianism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Taoism, as well as Geniism, an indigenous religion of Viet Nam. Their main centre is in Tay Ninh, about 60 miles (100 km) North West of Saigon. They currently have 7 to 8 million followers in Viet Nam and about 30,000 members elsewhere, primarily in Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe and the United States.
They regard the history of religion as being divided into three periods of revelation. The first was circa 2500 BCE, when God inspired selected religious leaders to found Judaism in the Middle East, Hinduism in India and Yi king (philosophy of transformation) in China. A few thousand years later, God led the Buddha to found Buddhism, Lao Tse to create Taoism, Confucius to start Confucianism, and Jesus Christ to found Christianity. They believe that, due to the frailty of those religious leaders, the truth became distorted. A number of religions were formed, but most flourished only in or near their countries of origin. Religions became adapted to the needs of individual cultures. Limitations in communication and transportation prevented the formation of a single, true universal religion which all of humanity could embrace. Followers of Caodaism believe that God was concerned that the multiplicity of religions prevented people from living together in harmony. God decided to initiate a third revelation, in which he communicated Caodaism by spiritist means.

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION IN THE cao dai RELIGION. cao dai is the thirdlargest religion in Viet Nam, behind Buddhism and Catholicism.
POLICY AND MEASURES AIMED AT THE ABOLITION OF THE CAO DAI RELIGION BY THE GOVERNMENT OF THE SOCIALIST REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM CAO DAI is the third largest religion in Viet Nam, behind Buddhism and Catholicism. It had an estimate of 2 million followers before 1975, but since then, due to the persecution and control of the religion by the government of Viet Nam, there is no official estimate nor statistics on the update number. For the last 23 years, 1975 to date, the government of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam (SRV) has continuously violated religious freedom as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations. Although freedom of religion is inscribed in the 1992 Constitution of the SRV (Chapter V, Article 70), the government has, in actuality, resorted to both legal manipulation and violence to deprive the CAO DAI adepts of the freedom to practice their religion. The following is a summary report on the condition of the CAO DAI religion since 1975, when the Communists took over South Viet Nam. I - Foundation and structure of CAO DAI In order to understand how the government of the SRV violates the religious rights of the CAO DAI adepts by controlling and interfering in the internal affairs of the religion, one must know first the basis philosophy and doctrine of CAO DAI.

Cao Dai
Doctrines Cao Dai is a highly syncretic monotheistic religion that seeks to establish a basis upon which major world religions can be united. History is divided into three periods of revelation. The first period was around 2500 BCE, a time when God inspired the establishment of Judaism, Hinduism and early Chinese religion. The second period coincided with the emergence of Buddhism, Christianity and Islam. These divinely inspired religions became corrupted because they came to be associated with their founders rather than recognised as truly universal religions. The third (present) period is one in which divine revelation occurs through inspired mediums. The message of Cao Dai is that all religions are in fact one even though they have different names.
Cao Dai venerates a host of different figures including Victor Hugo, Sun Yat Sen, and Trangh Trinh, a 16th century Vietnamese poet and philosopher. Its ethics are based in the belief in the reincarnation of the soul. Members of the sect are required to pray at least once a day, avoid violence to sentient creatures, to be honest, to avoid adultery, to be sober, and not to use bad language. Adhering to these rules will lead either to a beneficial rebirth or, ultimately, escape from the cycle of birth and death and rebirth in heaven. Failure to do so will lead to rebirth on another planet where life is harsher than on earth.
Cao Dai has its own hierarchy based on the Roman Catholic Church. Pope, bishops, cardinals and archbishops. Women are allowed to officiate at services.

above the altar. The Great Divine Temple, epicenter of the cao daireligion, is unlike any other house of worship in the world.
Giant Robot
April/May 2000 The Divine Eye gazes unblinkingly from the enormous globe on the altar. Twenty-eight dragon-encrusted columns, representing the twenty-eight manifestations of the Buddha, run the entire length of the immense chamber. The temple’s enormous windows, all emblazoned with the Eye, let in the muted sunlight. Lao Tze, the Sakyamoni Buddha, and Confucius share the stage with Jesus Christ on the fronton above the altar. The Great Divine Temple, epicenter of the Cao Dai religion, is unlike any other house of worship in the world. Cao Daism was founded in southern Viet Nam in 1926 and claims six million adherents. Cao Dai temples dot the Mekong Delta, but the faith’s world headquarters is the Holy See compound which lies just outside the Vietnamese city of Tay Ninh, about two hours northwest of Saigon, near the Cambodian border. Like the Cao Dai religion, the Great Divine Temple, centerpiece of the Holy See compound, is a vibrant and mesmerizing mix of different traditions and theologies. The immensity of the temple combined with the riotous colours and statuary creates an effect that is at once grand and gaudy. The enormous temple and its accoutrements will inspire thoughts of the Supreme Being, but also of Walt Disney. A full appreciation of the temple requires some knowledge of the Cao Dai religion. While many other religions are insular, Caodaism trumpets its foundations in other faiths. Caodaists describe their religion as the unification of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism: These faiths are represented in Cao Dai theology through such concepts as reincarnation, vegetarianism and yin and yang and also on the Cao Dai banner - a tri-colour with one colour for each religion.

( Tay Ninh Province) Cao Dai Great Temple is the cathedral of the Cao Dai religion and is the main attraction in Tay Ninh. The temple, built between 1933 and 1955, is located more specifically in Long Hoa, 5-km southeast of Tay Ninh. The Great Temple is 140 m long and 40 m wide. It has 4 towers each with a different name: Tam Dai, Hiep Thien Dai, Cuu Trung Dai, and Bat Quai Dai. The interior of the temple consists of a colonnaded hall and a sanctuary. The 2 rows of columns are decorated with dragons and are coated in white, red, and blue paint. The domed ceiling is divided into 9 parts similar to a night sky full of stars and symbolizing heaven. Under the dome is a giant star-speckled blue globe on which is painted the Divine Eye, the official symbol of Caodaism. Cao Dai followers worship Jesus Christ, Confucius, Laotze, and Buddha.
