Cultural series – Tam giáo. The 3 teachings of Confucianism, Taoism, & Buddhism – nearly full

May 21, 2023 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM


2 spaces left as of 15 May morning

Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism are considered the “three pillars” of ancient Chinese society and they form part of the rich and varied Vietnamese religions and belief systems.

Buddhism was introduced to Vietnam in the 2nd century and during the Ly Dynasty it became the state religion at the time in Vietnam.

Confucianism in Vietnam comes directly from Chinese culture and is a form of wisdom and code of social behaviour based on family and community order.

Taoism is derived from the Chinese word for the  ‘way’ or ‘road’, and like Confucianism, originated as a philosophy rather than a religion searching for the way/the one.


Dr Trần Đoan Lâm, former Editor in Chief of Thế Giới publishers and member of Đình Làng Việt the group of cultural scholars will take us on a whistlestop journey through the history and foundations of this trio of philosophies and religion.
