At Joss Paper Factory we specialise in the supply of traditional Chinese ceremonial products for traditional Chinese deity and Ancestor worship. Ancestor worship is a religious practice based on the belief that deceased family members have a continued existence.
Ancestor worshipping is not asking for favours, but to fulfil one’s filial duties. The act is a way to respect, honour and look after ancestors in their afterlives, guaranteeing the ancestors’ well- being and positive disposition towards the living, as well as the living descendants possibly seek the ancestors’ guidance or assistance.
The social or non-religious function of ancestor worship is to cultivate kinship values like filial piety, family loyalty, and continuity of the family lineage.
