Product Description:

What is the relationship between syncretism and diaspora? Caodaism is a large but almost unknown new religion that provides answers to this question. Born in Vietnam during the struggles of decolonization, shattered and spatially dispersed by cold war conflicts, it is now reshaping the goals of its four million followers. Colorful and strikingly eclectic, its “outrageous syncretism” incorporates Chinese, Buddhist, and Western religions as well as world figures like Victor Hugo, Jeanne d’Arc, Vladimir Lenin, and (in the USA) Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism.

The book looks at the connections between “the age of revelations” (1925-1934) in French Indochina and the “age of diaspora” (1975-present) when many Caodai leaders and followers went into exile. Structured in paired biographies to trace relations between masters and disciples, now separated by oceans, it focuses on five members of the founding generation and their followers or descendants in California, showing the continuing obligation to honor those who forged the initial vision to “bring the gods of the East and West together.” Diasporic congregations in California have interacted with New Age ideas and stereotypes of a “Walt Disney fantasia of the East,” at the same time that temples in Vietnam have re-opened their doors after decades of severe restrictions.

Caodaism forces us to reconsider how anthropologists study religious mixtures in postcolonial settings. Its dynamics challenge the unconscious Eurocentrism of our notions of how religions are bounded and conceptualized.

Product Description:
Called a “Technicolor Disney Fantasia” by journalist and author Graham Greene, Caodaism combines elements of Christianity, Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam, Taoism, with traditional native beliefs. Created in 1926 in Vietnam, Caodaism grew to become the third largest religion in Vietnam in only a few decades. This book explores Caodaism from its emergence in colonial Vietnam, to its establishment in the United States after the Vietnam War as a result of the Vietnamese diaspora; exploring the history, beliefs, rituals and customs of this little-known religion.
Cao Dai Great Way:The Grand Cycle of Esoteric Teaching

Cao Dai Great Way:The Grand Cycle of Esoteric Teaching
 
Product Description:
Caodaism is a new religion founded by the Supreme God in Vietnam early in the 20th century. One of the outstanding characteristics of this religion is its openly disclosure of the esoteric teaching. As evidence, the sacred scripture Đại Thừa Chơn Giáo (translated as The Grand Cycle of Esoteric Teaching) is a collection of Cao Dai Holy Messages to delineate Cao-Dai esoteric teaching. Though the title only mentions the esoteric feature, the book also includes the exoteric section. In fact, it consists of three parts: The Exoteric Teaching, the Esoteric Science, and the Divine Investiture.

Part I, the Exoteric Teaching, discusses the meaning of the words “The Grand Cycle of Esoteric Teaching”, the revelation of God’s Will, the foundation and sacred goal of Cao Dai Great Way, the essential virtues or qualities that disciples should acquire to prepare for their esoteric practice, and the method of self-perfection.

Part II, the Esoteric Science, in which Cao Dai Supreme God unravels the secret of the Genesis, the Celestial Law, the evolution of humans and all beings, the universe as the macro-cosmos, humans as micro-cosmos carrying all the corresponding constituents of the macro-cosmos, method to manage them, the stages and levels of spiritual initiation, and the esoteric method of deliverance.

Part III, the Divine Investiture, shows proofs of sanctification of Cao Dai esoteric disciples who achieved spiritual enlightenment, and manifested in spiritual séances from 1926 to 1950 (as this scripture was published in 1952). Through this part one can see another outstanding characteristic of Caodaism, which is the promotion and support for male-female equality in spiritual self-perfection and deliverance.

Note: This scripture has been translated into the French language twice (1950s and 2013) and will be very soon published in the Chinese language by a professor in Hong Kong University.
