What do Chinese really believe in?
I'm really confused at this when I saw photos showing that the local people in Mao Tze-tong's hometown gather together to worship him as if he were a god. They have even built a temple for him, and burn scents before his large statue and kneel down to worship him. Besides that, I see Chinese worshiping many other "gods", like "Guan-gong" (关公), Confucious, the Buddha, even their ancestors and deceased family members... Guan-gong was a human being, Confucious was a human being, the ancestors were once humans, even the Buddha was a real human being from India... Why do they worship humans as if they were real gods?! What do they really believe in? Where exactly do they place their faith in?
