Abstract

In the Western context, because of its organizational structure, religion has become synonymous with the church. In contrast to this, in traditional Chinese society the concept of religion is not monotheist or institutionalized. And thus there is harmony between multiple religions. The way of existence of China’s traditional religion is a normal state of the world's religions. In recent years, the institutional religions in Western society are facing a downward trend, while the number of people in pursuit of spirituality continues to rise, which reflects the enhanced awareness of the religious idea of ’’religiousness’’ or ‘’individual religion’’.
