Religion and Culture in Vietnam

By Remy Benoit

   Some of you served in Vietnam often seeing a variety of religious beliefs, practices, and yes, conflicts.
   You were in a country with a country vastly different that ours.

   And yet, the basic needs are still the same: a spirituality of some kind, food, clothing, and shelter.

   Perhaps these links will help you understand some of what you saw.
   There are several religions practiced in the country including:
Christianity, Hoa Hao, Ancestor Worship,the Ancestor's Altar, Buddhism, Christianity, Taoism, Cao Daism, and Confucianism.


   These are some links to some sites that may help you understand some of the beliefs and practices you saw there.
   If you are a student, following these links will bring you to a greater understanding of the country.
