Cao Dai Holy Temple

Cao Dai is a very intriguing religion. It mixes Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Confusianism (a kind of 'best of'!) and consults people like Shakespeare through seanses. Here, we visited a ceremony in their holiest church.

If you're American, this Cao Dai symbol is probably very familiar. (For those of you who aren't, check out a one-dollar-bill.)

Cao Dai priests: the ones in red specialize in Islam, the ones in blue specialize in Christianity and the ones in yellow specialize in Buddhism.
