3. Religious Sites Hangzhou remains home to many of the religions that haveprospered in China over the centuries. Confucianism, China'soldest extant faith, which could more accurately be called aphilosophy, is still evident in the relationships within families andamong groups of residents. Ancient ancestor worship continuesin the form of respect for the heroes of Hangzhou's past, ascommemorated in the many shrines and tombs along the shoresof West Lake. King Qian's Tomb is perhaps the most strikingexample of this Confucian ethic, as Hangzhou's population andits many tourists still flock here to pay respcts to this founder ofthe Wuyue Kingdom who died over 1000 years ago. However, Hangzhou is especially known as a bastion of theBuddhist faith, which traveled over the Himalayas contained inthe minds and scrolls of Indian missionaries beginning in thesecond century AD. The main tenets of Buddhism hold thatdesire is the root of all suffering, and that only by adhering to thenoble eightfold path of Buddhism can suffering be ended-eitherin this life, on earth, or in the spiritual life, through achievingNirvana. Nirvana is a transcendent state free from suffering and the worldly cycle of birth and rebirth. The basic aims of theprescribed path are to encourage adherents to achieve proprietyin every aspect of life, from action and speech to understandingand concentration. The Wuyue Kingdom, founded by King Qian, was a Buddhistrealm, and during the reign of its kings, the foreign faithflourished along the Qiantang River, and the Chinese adaptedits precepts to fit their own culture, developing strains ofBuddhism with Chinese characteristics.
