Confucianism: a world religion founded
by K'ung Fu Tzu (a.k.a. Confucius)
Confucianism is an Eastern religion/philosophy. Although it is more accurately referred to as a philosophy, books on world religions inevitably include it with other religions from Buddhism to Zoroastrianism.
It originated in China but has spread to
Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam. Most people who adhere to the teachings of Confucius
follow Chinese traditional religion, which is a blending of Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, and
traditional local practices and beliefs.
