It is beautiful in the building of cao dai. QT @Nicolekiss: post update. One god, one world.

I learnt about a new religion while I was in Vietnam. It's called Cao Dai (pronounced as cow-die). It's actually written as such in Vietnamese: Cao Đài (道高台). We took a tour out to see the first temple built of it, called the Tay Ninh Holy See. I won't go in too much detail on the religion, you can read it here . But basically Cao Dai belives in one Holy See (the holy eye) as one true spirit, way before god was born. And that all religions we know of today: Christianity, Buddism, Islam, etc were all of the same origin, we were all taught the same thing: love and justice. A story: I saw Jesus, Guan Yin and various other gods lining up all under the Eye. Or the Holy See. from outside. inside the temple you can see one huge ball with an eye adorned in the front placed in the front part of the temple, where hundreds of followers will come to pray to everyday. Like Christianity...
