Welcome here! I’ll be praying specifically for your daughter. I was in Vietnam many years ago as a volunteer and educator at a local hospital in DaNang. I wasn’t following the Lord at that time, and was drawn to meditation and Buddhism too. However, it is a fake facade to believe the “religious” tranquility of it all. Please remind your daughter that Vietnam is a communist country and people must “practice” their rituals and beliefs in such ways as to not stir things and to get along. I remember how I was visiting some area when I was on my day off and wanted to practice standing meditation, and was unable because the communist soldier came to monitor me and I guess it was too expressive that I wasn’t allowed (I was basically standing, hands together, eyes closed). Later, when I was born again and visited Israel, I remembered it on the Temple Mount where we weren’t allowed to pray or even to close our eyes or give any suggestions of a prayer; on the surface of compliance it felt peaceful but for what price?
The Vietnamese culture however is one of hospitality and kindness. I remember watching couples, sitting by the river at the end of the work day. Their feet and faces were dirty but they were holding hands, drinking their coconuts, and looking in each other’s eyes so in love like nothing else existed. I fell in love with Vietnam. If I may suggest sometimes when we think that it may be the “spirituality,” it may actually be the culture. I’ve learned that cultural competence is an important area to study too.
Thank you for sharing about yourself. Stay in touch.
My very best and prayers
