The term A?a??o Ma?�u (Han Nom:e?�???) refers to the worship of mother goddesses in Vietnam.
While scholars like NgA? A?a��c Tha��nh propose that it represents a systematic mother goddess cult, the term draws together fairly disparate beliefs and practices.A�These include the worship of goddesses such as ThiA?n Y A Na, The Lady of the Realm (BA� ChA?a Xa��), The Lady of the Storehouse (BA� ChA?a Kho) and Princess Lia��u Ha??nh,A�legendary figures like A�u C??, the Trung Sisters (Hai BA� Tr?�ng), and Lady Trieu (BA� Tria��u), as well as the cult of the Four Palaces.
A?a??o Ma?�u is commonly associated with spirit mediumship ritualsa��known in Vietnam as lA?n A�a��nga��much as practiced in other parts of Asia, such as Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong. Although the Communist government had initially proscribed the practice of such rituals, deeming them to be superstitions, they relented in 1987, once again legalizing their practice.
