That is partially because many of the gods who appear in their rituals are borrowed from Buddhism. But they also worship gods borrowed from Daoism, as well as many gods and spirits neither Buddhist nor Daoist. In addition, their rituals have little in common with the rituals seen in the main halls of Buddhist temples. Another blurring of boundaries is seen in traditional community rituals, both those pro- Folk Religion and Animism 19 moted by the state and those centered on villages, which often add Confucian elements to a folk core.
Village festivals were an occasion for an entire village to come together once a year, usually at the beginning of a new year, to reaffirm village solidarity and thank the tutelary deities for keeping the village safe and sound. Those tutelary deities in an inland agricultural community would usually include the local mountain god as well as a pair of spirit-generals — the male general of heaven and the female general of the earth. The mountain god could normally be found in a shrine on the hill behind the village.
Kings listened carefully when monks told them that if they sponsored the construction of temples and supported the monks who lived in them, they would show that they were concerned for more than just their individual self-interest. By thus rising above self-absorption, they would accumulate good karma and counteract bad karma. More good karma meant fewer problems with their enemies. Therefore, the way to build a powerful kingdom was to support Buddhism. This explanation for the benefits derived from sponsoring temples was reinforced by an addendum provided by the monk Tosŏn in the ninth century.
