Spiritism in Vietnam

The following was sent to me by my Canadian friend, Richard Rowley.

It was written by Robert Egby.
VIETNAMESE MEDIUMS in Washington, DC, five of them in Canada. Their mediums use various physical techniques including ouija boards for Spirit communication. They are based in Viet Nam and they number some eight million people.

They are the Dao Cao Dai or Caodaists in English. They consitute the third largest religion in Viet Nam - after Buddhism and Roman Catholicism. Caodaism is described as 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 religious center is in Tay Ninh, about 60 miles North West of Saigon. Hundreds of Cao Dai Temples / Thanh That (or Holy Houses) are scattered all over Viet Nam, especially in the countryside of south and central of Viet Nam. There are large Caodaist communities in Cambodia as well as in the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Australia and in other countries as a result of the refugeeus from Viet Nam since 1975.

The Religion started when Ngo Van Chieu, a civil servant of the Cochinchina government began to receive messages from a spirit called Duc Cao Dai (pronounced: Duk Kow Dye), whom he believed to be God. After three years of studying Spiritualism, and in particular the teachings of Allan Kardec and worshipping God, he shared his spiritual discoveries with others in Saigon. Cao Dai instructed a small group of mediums to found a new religion. One of the mediums, Le Van Trung was named by God to be acting Giao Tong (Pope). Caodaism was formally founded on September 26th 1926 by a group of 247 disciples.

Spiritualist / Spiritist formats are the methods by which God chose to transmit this new religion to humanity. Simple mechanical devices were used as a means of communication between spirit beings and humans. For example: (1) A small movable platform on a Ouija board is lightly touched by two or more mediums. During a séance, the platform is seen to move around the board and point to various letters, numbers and words.

(2) A small table which the mediums touch lightly. During a séance, the table is observed to tip and tap on the floor. The number of taps would indicate a specific letter.

(3) A Ngoc Co ( a basket with a beak) consists of a wicker basket with a radiating stick about 26 inches long; a pen is attached near the end of the stick. In use, two mediums hold the basket; the apparatus moves and its pen writes out messages which are interpreted by a third person and written down by a secretary. This is a very efficient method of communication, because words are directly written. Icenters throughout the United States including Washington DC. They are listed at and the main website - in English, Vietnamese and French is at In addition also has an excellent writeup on this movement.

MEDIUMS USE OUIJA BOARDS -- They generally follow Spiritualist philosophies, their founder studied Alan Kardec's Spiritist teachings, they have 27 temples in the United States.
