Let freedom ring. And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring - when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children - black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics - will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
...Martin Luther King's 'I have a Dream' speech
As someone who is exposed to pretty much the major religions of the world like Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc...and myself a believer in one, it is quite interesting to be told of a peculiar religion that took root in Vietnam, and has been around for only the last century or so.
The religion of Cao Dai, or Cao Daism, takes its roots from some elements of the other major religions, and is itself something different for someone like me. Together with my charges, we rushed at the opportunity to view one of their prayer sessions, which is held every 6 hours, every day, without fail. The temple is located at Tay Ninh.
Here are snapshots of the ceremony that I attended.
For more information on Cao Daism, one can refer to WikiPedia at HERE.
My takeaway from my trip to the temple is this big idea of the oneness of worship. I think at most times, besides the fact that we do worship different god/s, there is just this universal belief about the idea of worship, that one-ness of idea, that there is this entity that is almighty, and worthy of worship.
