Caodaism is the first religious community so far that enables its adepts to have direct communication with the transcendental world via institutionalised spiritist seances. We believe that their doctrine provides the synthesis of all great teachings of the past. The full name of Cao Dai religion is “The Great Way of the Third Era of Salvation.”

They gave us a warm reception in a luxurious hotel of Ho Chi Minh City where we stayed for three nights and two days. Mentionably, Rev. Canh Tran, honorable president of Caodai Overseas Missionary, Washington DC, USA, Mrs. Canh and Mrs. Nguyen Ngoc Lan took the total care of our team. The tour became a reality because of Rev. Tran Canh’s unfailingly efficient and consistent efforts.
