Jump to: navigation, search

Chinese Folk Religion refers to the polyreligious synthesis of ancestor worship, Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism found in China and many Chinese communities abroad. An estimated 220 million people have this religious world view. In most of the rest of Asia, for example, in Japan, a similar polyreligious synthesis is common, but individuals are classifed by self-identification as members of one religion or another.
