CHINESE RELIGIONS


CHINESE RELIGIONS
   scholars have traditionally held the view that there were three major religious TRADITIONS in China
   BUDDHISM, CONFUCIANISM and TAOISM. Today this view is challenged by a much more complex one which sees the Chinese religious tradition dynamically incorporating various religious traditions within Chinese religion. The cult of ancestors, SHAMAN and the WORSHIP of HEAVEN are important aspects of Chinese religion which took differing forms as political dynasties changed.
