TRENDS CHANGE IN RELIGIOUS AND BELIEF LIVING OF THE KHMER PEOPLE IN TRA VINH PROVINCE
The Khmer ethnic group currently has 1.5 million people living for a long time in the Mekong River Delta, most of them in Soc Trang, TraVinh, KienGiang, and An Giang provinces, and is the largest ethnic group in Vietnam today. The Khmer people have their own language and script belonging to the Mon-Khmer language family. During the process of community and cultural exchanges with other ethnic groups, the Khmer people always consciously preserve their traditional culture, and at the same time contribute Khmer cultural characteristics to the general cultural appearance of the country. In TraVinh people, the Khmer people make up more than 30% of the population, with a rich and diverse belief and religious life and activities. This study is based on a philosophical point of view to consider the structure of religious and religious activities of the Khmer people, the factors affecting the religious belief life, and the value of these religious and religious activities in the spiritual life of the Khmer people.
