Rituals and Worship

Worship and Devotion in Daily Life

The typical Chinese individual is not affiliated with any one religion, but is strongly influenced by the matrix encompassing Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and folk and popular traditions. Devotional activities range widely—from self-cultivation exercises like meditation or qigong, to worship of deities or ancestors, to conscious efforts to serve as a valued member of human society.
