Pagodas, Gods and Spirits of VietnamBook - 1997
This work sets out to reveal in text and illustrations the varied and prolific religions of Vietnam. Despite decades of government discouragement of all religions and their practices, the deeply anchored faiths of the Vietnamese people have continued to flourish and to increase their hold on the believers. Everywhere between the Red River in the north and the Mekong Delta in the south, the offerings are heaped up on altars, hundreds of thousands of the faithful stream again on pilgrimages, and there is a regular increase in the thanksgiving rites in the chuas, dinhs and dens, the pagodas, the village ceremony halls and hero temples all over the land.
