Project #73891 - ASIAN RELIGIONS

These questions must be 2-3 paragraphs each. References necessary. 
 
1.)  Define the Tao (or its alternate spelling, the Dao).  How do Confucians and Taoists differ in their interpretation of it?  How is the Tao related to the fundamental Chinese concepts of YIN and YANG?
 
 
2.)  Confucianism is not a "religion" in the sense of having a divinity.  It is essentially a way of living, a philosophy concerned with making the best of family life and our larger society.  How do Confucius'  5 main principles (jen, chun-tzu, li, te, wen) and especially, within "li", the notion of right relationships, inform modern Chinese society?  
 
 
3.)  Shinto is a fascinating religion.  It is the way of the KAMI, with no specific historical founder, no collection of sacred texts, and no commonly agreed upon system of doctrine.  In Japan, the myths of Shinto and the religious practices/festivals connected with it are the cord which binds Japanese society.  Many Japanese may be Zen Buddhists, but they also may participate in Shinto rituals.  From your reading about Shinto in the WR textbook, tell me three things that you find interesting/confusing/practical/unrealistic  about Shinto.
