                Chinese Ghosts
                History and Culture

                altThere are many ghosts in Chinese culture. Ghosts have been believed and worshipped by Chinese for a few thousand years. Even Confucius (kǒng zǐ 孔子)?said, "Respecting ghosts and gods, but away from them."

                Many people believe ghosts, yet many don't. Chinese people often say, "If you believe it, there will be, but if you don't, there will not." Here is a story about this saying.

                Zhuxi (zhū xī 朱熹)?was a famous scholar in the Song Dynasty (sòng cháo 宋朝)?(960 - 1279). He believed there were no ghosts in the world, so he decided to write an essay "No Ghost." It was said he was a great sage so even ghosts were afraid of him. If he said no ghosts, ghosts could no longer exist. When ghosts knew he was writing the essay, they gathered together to discuss this and decided to send the smartest ghost to entreat him abandon the writing.
