The festivity consists of three parts, namely “dien tro” (farming re-enacting activities), “te le” (offerings), and “le Mat” (the main rite of the festival also called “Linh tinh tinh phoc” - a spiritual activity of ancient Vietnamese who worshipped “no” and “nuong”– the male and female reproductive organs).
