The religious concept conveyed by Guan Gong's sculpture is the core content of Guan Gong's belief, embodies the spiritual essence of Guan Gong's belief, is the premise and internal basis for existence and development, and refers to people's ideological consciousness regarding Guan Gong as a god. The religious concept of Guan Gong's belief originates from the belief of ghosts and gods in ancient China and the traditional religious thought, which can be roughly summed up in the aspects of immortality of soul, ghost belief and the teaching of Shinto.
The concept of immortality of the soul is one of the most important and fundamental concepts in all religious concepts. The belief in the immortality of the soul is a common belief in all kinds of religious systems and phenomena at all times and in all countries. According to Edward Taylor, one of the founders of modern western religion, in his book Primitive Culture, the "animism of all things", the concept of soul is the origin and basis of the whole religious belief and the core content of all religious consciousness; without the supernatural and immortal concept of soul, there can be no transcendence. However, the superhuman concept of gods, so there will be no religious belief itself. Philosophically, it is generally believed that the soul exists in the human body, but it is opposed to the body. According to the definition of religion, the soul is a kind of supernatural existence that resides in the individual, dominates all its activities, and can be separated from the individual, or even will not be lost with the individual's death.
In the hearts of the Chinese people, Guan Gong is one of the most respected gods of the Chinese nation. He will bless all those who are loyal to the monarch, patriotic, respectful to the old and virtuous. He is the embodiment of honesty and loyalty, and his character of "words must be faithful, deeds must be respectful" points out the direction for us to do things.
In the history of China, Guan Gong is the only God respected by the three religions, representing the moral spirit of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. Through people's worship of Guan Gong sculpture, it is not only a psychological sustenance, but also carries people's moral pursuit.
