The Ancestors - 祖先

In this episode, we explore how the Ancestors understood the origin of life. The “Altar of Heaven” complex was constructed for the annual winter ceremony, known as the “Border Sacrifice” or as it is more accurately known as, the “Sacrifice to Heaven”. This was one of the longest-running ceremonial traditions that have ever been conducted on earth. From the start of the Chinese civilization in about 2200 BC, the Chinese emperor on the winter solstice would sacrifice to Shang-Di. This ceremony was performed every year through all the dynasties of Chinese history and only ended in the year 1911 when the last emperor of China was removed, and China became a republic.
