Worship in China

Worship in China
The Chinese people have different and strange beliefs that go back to their beliefs of afterlife. Ghosts are also a part of the culture and beliefs of these people.
Given the multiplicity of religions in different countries, especially in China, which is a unique country and has the most religions and schools, it is interesting to photograph their temples and get acquainted with their beliefs about life after death and worship of gods. .
However, most of these religions and schools are human and non-divine. By studying in those religions, a kind of worship can be seen and the owners of those religions have designed the manner and method of worship and have considered its obedience for the followers.
It is interesting to know that the new generation does not believe in these issues at all, and these issues are more prevalent among older Chinese women.
Funeral services in ancient China were performed with special ceremonies. When the Chinese wanted to bury rich people, they buried many of their personal belongings with them, believing that this property would be given to them, and therefore the ancient Chinese resembled the ancient Egyptians. In the fall and spring, the tribesmen visited the shrine, and even in the fall, they drew blankets and quilts on the paper, burning the paintings and imagining that by doing so, their dead would be protected from the cold.
In China, the main and famous temples are generally built in the form of towers and several floors, the floors are connected by stairs. On each floor there are many tombs in the form of a small drawer of a cupboard (such as a box of nails and screws in our closet), each with a person’s name engraved on each drawer where the person’s ashes are kept.
Confucius has perhaps the most followers in China. However, this religion pays more attention to etiquette and ethics, which is more known as a moral school in China. But they recommend worship programs and a special way of praying to their followers. Buddhism also has many followers in this country.
According to the Chinese, ghosts also need money, which is why hellish banknotes are printed for the court of the dead in the afterlife. The trial is being held by a landlord named Yan Wang to reclaim the dead. In this court, sinners go to a basement to atone for their sins or enter heaven after receiving their sentence. This is hellish money from the offerings of the living to the dead, which bring these offerings to the dead by burning them and restore peace to them. Some people fold these banknotes in a special way or stack them on top of each other. Collecting banknotes for the dead is a Chinese belief in the afterlife in China.
