In China religious belief is an essential element of people's lives. There is a strong belief in the supernatural world with its spirits of humans (ancestors, deified heroes and worthies), of natural objects and of mythological beings dating from prehistory. There is Buddha and Guan Yin, the goddess of compassion. Many other gods have particular specialties; for instance, there are different wealth gods for success in business and for gambling. There are city gods and kitchen gods, the earth gods who protect a specific piece of land, and myriad spirits, who protect wells, mountains, bridges, distribute rain or snow, control flooding or protect humanity from disease and epidemics.

And to set one story right......It's a myth that a Buddha should be given to you. You CAN buy a Buddha for yourself.
