Daoism is mainly active in Jing funerary rituals. There are three or four Masters in each village. Daoism is transmitted from father to son. It is said that Daoism in Jing regions belongs to the Orthodox Oneness School. They use scriptures written in Han Chinese or the "Nan language" ( 喃字 Nanzi ) in rituals, but recite them using Jing pronunciation.
