Mai Trong An Vinh


The cultural and spiritual life of the Ede people is very rich and unique. Therefore, the implementation of the Ede people’s worship rituals is quite common. These rituals embody the Ede people's profound human life philosophies about human and human life. But now the Ede people’s worship rituals have been transformed through the process of cultural exchange and contact with other ethnic groups. The regular practice of worship rituals on the one hand contributes to preserving and promoting the values ​​in the Ede people’s traditional culture, on the other hand, it is also one of the factors leading to superstitious actions, which negatively affects the healthy development of spiritual and cultural elements, hinders the construction of an advanced Vietnamese culture imbued with national identity in a more or less manner. Therefore, the research for objective view in a scientific perspective on human life philosophy in the Ede people’s worship rituals is necessary to contribute to the explanation of the formation of the worship rituals and human life meaning of ritual practice steps. It is one of the important bases for cultural management agencies to devise appropriate guidelines and policies to preserve and promote human life values ​​in the Ede people’s worship rituals in Buon Ma Thuot in the current period.
