Following the instructions of the temple deity, the Chen family conducted Taoist ceremonial rites to release the souls of the dead from suffering and to help them achieve reincarnation.

Chang Ming-yung (張銘勇), a geomancer, said although ghosts, spirits and deities exist in popular folk beliefs, people should not become too superstitious.

“If someone believes he or she is seeing strange things and starts to make something out of nothing, any house can become a ‘haunted house.’ Such people normally scare themselves, rather than being frightened by ghosts,” Chang said.
