The worship of dead people

For most Taiwanese, we will burn ghost papers for all the deceased; this is part of the ritual at funerals for Taoists. Some people think that the hell is horrified with gods and ghosts, to bring us into another world, so we may need money to travel and these ghost papers are money for the dead. Nowadays, many religions are allowed in Taiwan with their own rituals; therefore, the ritual may differ upon families.

Recommended movie: The 9th Precinct

The 9th Precinct is a police story based on the dead, the cops deal with living cases in the morning, but during nights, they handle unknown ghosts. I think this movie is good for people who want to understand more about Taoist rites and beliefs. Available in Netflix with English subtitles, please search ” The 9th precinct” and turn on English subtitles when you are watching. Hope you enjoy this movie.

Welcome to the hell~~
