Ultimate Reality and Divine Beings

The divine beings of non-sectarian Chinese religion are the spirits of nature that inhabit mountains, rivers, sun, moon, and the like. Cities and local communities also have earth or city gods that embody their unique locality. Deceased ancestors can also become divinities. Ultimate reality is composed of the interrelated triad of Earth, Humanity, and Heaven.
