China has been a multi-religion country since the ancient times. It is well known that Confucianism is an indigenous religion and is the soul of Chinese culture, which enjoyed popular support among people and even became the guiding ideology for feudalism society, but it did not develop into a national belief.

Taoism Taoism is a traditional Chinese native religion. It is a genuinely Chinese religion, which was formally established in the late Eastern Han Dynasty(2 AD). In general, Taoism theories reflect Taoism as a balanced relationship between human beings and nature. The most basic concept of this religion is Tao. Originally, Tao refers to the road extending in one direction. Roads having many forks or directions are not Tao in Taoists’ opinions. Tao also refers to the rules governing behaviors of human beings and objects. Laozi, the founder of Taoism, added his unique idea on Tao and made Tao as the core of his theology. In his opinion, Tao is a whole existing before the heaven and earth. Everything is the deviation of Tao.
