Spirit Realms of Vietnam Volume II The Diaries
by Judith Mann (Goodreads Author) (Author/Photographer)
Release date: Jan 01, 2012
In her vibrant ‘Diaries’, Judith Mann sets out to visit and unravel the mysteries of spirit stones and sacred sites of Vietnam as described nearly a century ago in the fascinating writings of Fr. Leopold Cadiere. One visit to Vietnam turns into five, filled with hazardous treks to mountain sanctums, sacred caves and wild motorcycle rides to remote shrines and back-street temples. The intrepid author’s uncanny intuition and insight is displayed as she evokes myths and spiritual traditions foreign to our own. Original maps and a multitude of riveting photos are shared. In-depth background information can be found in the companion ‘Spirit Realms of Vietnam Volume I – The Context’.
