Photographer's Note

"CaoDai is a universal faith with the principle that all religions have one same divine origin, which is God, or Allah, or the Tao, or the Nothingness, one same ethic based on LOVE and JUSTICE, and are just different manifestations of one same TRUTH."

It's a combination of Christianity, Buddhism , Islam, Confucianism, Hinduism, Geniism, and Taoism, and was formed in Southern Vietnam in the early 1920s.

I never really wanted to go to the home of the religion at Tay Ninh as part of a day trip with other tour groups, but when I discovered there was a smaller temple in Vung Tau I had to visit so I could spend some time there.
The priests were interested to see me there, and I even had a guided tour of the temple before the 12.00 service, (but wasn't allowed to take photos when it began).

Here one of the congregation is having a quiet moment of prayer here, watched over by the All-seeing eye of God.
