On December 1, 2016, Vietnam’s traditional practice of “Tho Mau Tam Phu” (Worship of Mother Goddesses) was recognised by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This is a purely Vietnamese belief, worshipping female deities, the mothers of nature, through the image of “Thanh Mau” (Mother Saint), a supreme deity having the power to create, manage and assist earthly people.  The form of  “Tho Mau Tam Phu” belief practice culminates in the “Hau dong” (chanting-trancing) art, which is occult but contains the people’s strong confidence and earnest aspirations for life, thus creating the distinctiveness and eternal vitality of this special form of belief.
