The rituals and traditions of Confucianism are developed after five scriptures during the era of Han in 206 BC. This was later evolved and developed into a religion as Confucianism. The master of this religion is Zhuzi Jiali and he was the leader of Confucianism as he was the most prominent thinker. He developed the text in accordance with the rights and rituals that are regarding the life after death and how to perform the funeral (Ivanhoe and Norden, 2005).
Discussing about the role of the ancestors and how to take care of them at their death, funeral and other events is very important in their tradition. Individual who lived beyond the grave is the top member of the family and he will be responsible for the health and success of the family; children, grand children and great grand children. In this tradition it is assumed that these traditions need to be followed by children and grand children of the family. They need to take care of the family member who is following old age and when they will die children and grand children have the responsibility to take care of their older ones. In Confucianism tradition, believe about the afterlife are very complex. The rituals including the burials and practices for the ancestors are taken very seriously. This concern is present in Confucianism culture and this is a symbol of love and hope for life after death and continuance of life after the death. This is a concern that expresses the love for the family members and loved ones and they know that they have the obligation to take care of their soul. It can be clearly indicated that the rituals and believes of Confucianism are in accordance with the protection of body and soul. They believe that ancestors need to take care of their old ones even after death for protecting them from the mischief that could be caused by ghosts.
