Priest Xia Shiran, 25, sweeps stairs on the day of Hungry Ghost Festival, at Taoist monastery Jiuyang Palace, in Laiwu of Jinan city, Shandong province, China, September 2, 2020. Shiran encountered priest Liang Xingyang's Weibo channel. He was surprised that a Taoist priest could be so active on social media. Out of curiosity, he started to learn more about him. In 2015, he was converted to Taoism and two years later he started living in the temple. "Almost everyone has a fantasy about Taoist life as if priests don't ever eat or walk, or don't use money. After I became one, I realized that they are normal people, and everyone is just studying non-stop," Shiran said. "From here above we can see the downhill villages. It's definitely more convenient to eat and commute in the city. However they might dream of better air quality, slower pace of life and quieter natural environment we have up here. When life on the mountain becomes hard, I think of those who envy our lives. Everyone has different moments of happiness and comfort though each of us envies others."

But by following my master Liang, I can feel myself improving, in studying knowledge and socializing with people," Shiquan said.

In a room inside a hillside Taoist monastery in China's Shandong province lies a collection of 558 memorial tablets inscribed with the names and hometowns of people who died after contracting the coronavirus or while battling the pandemic. "A person's true death is when the whole world has forgotten them," said Taoist priest Liang Xingyang, who started the collection on Jan. 29, shortly after Chinese authorities announced that the virus could pass between humans. "No matter what religion or beliefs they hold, their spirit deserves to be passed on. In fact, they live on in our hearts." Taoism, or Daoism, is a philosophy-turned-religion that has tens of millions of followers in China and is one of the country's five officially sanctioned religions. Taoists use memorial tablets to give souls a place to rest after death, Liang said. The monastery complex, where a small community of priests lives, sleeps, eats and worships, is spread across a rocky hill. As of September 8, there have been 85,146 confirmed COVID-19 cases in mainland China and 4,634 people have died. Globally, at least 897,000 people have died from COVID-19 and over 27 million have been infected. REUTERS/Tingshu Wang SEARCH "TAOISM TINGSHU" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Shishen is a priest studying his second year at a Taoist college at Wudang Mountain in Hubei province. He is an apprentice of Priest Liang Xingyang. Shishen came to the Jiuyang palace during his summer vacation and to help out in the monastery. "Different person turns to Taoism due to different reasons. Some are hoping to cut off the tie with the real world to experience themselves, some for their interests in Taoism," Shishen said. "I was drawn to it, in hoping to seek answers about life and death. My family member's passing away has stricken me hard. Since then, I wanted to know more about the life and death, and religion is my way leading to that."

Taoist priest Liang Xingyang, 41, takes over an empty gas container from an apprentice as he attempts to carry it downhill, at Taoist temple Jiuyang Palace, in Laiwu of Jinan city, Shandong province, China, September 6, 2020. Liang, who has a following of three million people on China's Twitter-like Weibo, does get help from young people who have joined him over the years. "The hardest thing is to keep going," Liang said. "We maintain them (the tablets) every day. Then we wait to see if, once this disaster has finished, will people still remember them? It is this which is the biggest hurdle."

Taoist priest Liang Xingyang, 41, pays tribute to Taoist gods before moving tablets on the day of Hungry Ghost Festival, at Taoist temple Jiuyang Palace, in Laiwu of Jinan city, Shandong province, China September 2, 2020. A collection of 558 memorial tablets are inscribed with the names and hometowns of people who died after contracting the coronavirus or while battling the pandemic. "A person's true death is when the whole world has forgotten them," said Xingyang, who started the collection on Jan. 29, shortly after Chinese authorities announced that the virus could pass between humans. "No matter what religion or beliefs they hold, their spirit deserves to be passed on. In fact, they live on in our hearts." Of those honoured by the tablets, only a minority died of COVID-19. Most died from other causes, like exhaustion from overwork, Liang said. REUTERS/Tingshu Wang SEARCH "TAOISM TINGSHU" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

Priest Zhang Zongyan, 27, a politics study graduate, arranges memorial tablets at Taoist temple Jiuyang Palace, in Laiwu of Jinan city, Shandong province, China, September 7, 2020. During her studies, Zongyan unexpectedly encountered a Taoist ceremony on her trip. She visited a Taoist temple where she first experienced Taoist music and dance. She was fascinated by the rhythm and costumes. After her graduation, Zongyan worked for a year but more she learned about the Taoism, the more she was drawn to it. She then made her mind to quit her job and focus on studying Taoism. Five years ago, Zongyan was converted to Taoism in her home town. REUTERS/Tingshu Wang SEARCH "TAOISM TINGSHU" FOR THIS STORY.

Priest Xia Shiran, 25, chants and dances at a memorial ceremony during Hungry Ghost Festival celebrations at Taoist temple Jiuyang Palace, in Laiwu of Jinan city, Shandong province, China, September 1, 2020. Shiran encountered priest Liang Xingyang's Weibo channel. He was surprised that a Taoist priest could be so active on social media. Out of curiosity, he started to learn more about him. In 2015, he was converted to Taoism and two years later he started living in the temple. "Almost everyone has a fantasy about Taoist life as if priests don't ever eat or walk, or don't use money. After I became one, I realized that they are normal people, and everyone is just studying non-stop," Shiran said. "From here above we can see the downhill villages. It's definitely more convenient to eat and commute in the city. However they might dream of better air quality, slower pace of life and quieter natural environment we have up here. When life on the mountain becomes hard, I think of those who envy our lives. Everyone has different moments of happiness and comfort though each of us envies others."
