The Official HardwareZone Sintua Thread
 
Hi all, new poster here. I'm a long time enthusiast/practitioner/student of Chinese folk religion and ritual activities (the 'sintua [神坛] scene', as some call it).

The sintua scene is so vibrant and widespread in SG; I was thinking of starting a discussion thread about it here, so that fellow sintua buffs might be able to discuss this wonderful aspect of Chinese culture. A lot of misconceptions, ignorant beliefs, etc concerning the sintua scene have been going around; perhaps this thread can be used as an educational tool. I'm more than happy to answer questions, clarify facts and so on.

Pic related; this is me at the temple I normally attend. Let's hear it from all the other sintua people here! :)

He incorporates some Chinese folk religion-type elements in what he does, but that's as far as I'm willing to go with classification.

It is a fiction, yes, but a fiction based on truth.

The Monkey King was being prayed to long before Journey to the West was even written. :)

Come to think of it, Lord of the rings were inspired by mythical characters as well. Gandalf was inspired by Odin.......etc......

Elves, Dwarves and dragons are quite obvious.....
