I am an American who became interested in Daoism though martial arts movies and Chinese literature. I currently live in Taipei, Taiwan where I teach English as a second language. My hobby is to visit local temples and record various rituals. For example, here is a ritual wishing a happy birthday to Qitian Dasheng ("Great Sage Equaling Heaven"), a.k.a. the Monkey King (he is worshiped in southern China, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Singapore). I'm not sure of the specific school, though. One scholar I asked initially suggested Chanhe (a school heavily influenced by Buddhism), but later changed his guess to some generic, modern Taiwanese brand passing as Quanzhen.
