On the Relationship between Chinese Taoist Rites and Agriculture

There is a close relationship between Taoism and traditional agriculture in China. This relationship is also manifested in the relationship between Taoist rites and agriculture: the Taoist rites have obvious awareness of stressing the agriculture; holding of Taoist rites, gods worshiped in rites, offerings used, and grain consumed are connected with the agriculture; many actions in rites have nature of imitating the agriculture. The concept of “quietness” and “cleanness” in rites can cultivate the awareness of farmers for respecting the agriculture.
