Taoist Tradition and Change examines the development of Taoism, especially the development of the Complete Perfection Sect, in Hong Kong. The book is divided into three parts: (1) the rise, the beliefs and the rites of the Complete Perfection Sect in the Song Dynasty; (2) the history of the transmission of the sect from the northern China to Guangdong and Hong Kong; (3) the beliefs and practices (such as the Confession Rite, the Death Rite and the fa-hui) of the Complete Perfection Sect in Hong Kong and the community services developed by the sect in Hong Kong. The book could help the readers in understanding the Taoist cosmology, the Taoist view on human life and society contained in the indigenous religion. It is indispensable for understanding the Chinese religion development in Hong Kong.
