Traditional Customs

In the spiritual life of the Vietnamese people

In the spiritual life of the Vietnamese people, different forms of beliefs and religions have always existed, among which the cult of the mother, of the tutelary spirit of the village, of Buddha, of the ancestors or even the cult of the national heroes.

Today, folk beliefs appear to be very popular again.

 Village & guild:

Vietnamese culture has evolved on the basis of the rice culture. Thus, the lifestyle of the population is closely related to the village & native land.
People have gathered together to form villages in rural areas and guilds in urban areas since the dawn of the nation. Each village & guild has its own regulations called conventions but they are always in accordance with state laws and they ensure the promotion of good customs within the population.

 Cult of the village Tutelary Spirit, the national heroes

A popular Vietnamese proverb says, “When drinking water, be grateful to its source” or in other words always remember the origin of things. This is why, in almost every village, a temple has been erected to worship the tutelary spirit who founded the locality. Every year, villagers celebrate the anniversary of the death of the tutelary spirit. The celebration always comprises 2 parts: rituals and banquets. Today, people worship the tutelary spirits along with the national heroes who sacrificed their lives for the independence of the country.

 Ancestor worship

Vietnamese ancestor worship, which is the ritual expression of filial piety, dates from long before the arrival of Confucianism & Buddhism.
The cult of the ancestors is based on the belief that soul lives on after death and becomes the protector of its descendants. Traditionally, the Vietnamese venerate and honour the spirits of their ancestor regularly, especially on the anniversary of the ancestor’s death. The ancestors are informed on occasions of family joy or sorrow, such as weddings, success in an examination or death.
