A Ritual in Taoist Religion: Rolling in the Mud

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I once read a book whose title I have alas forgotten, but it described a ritual within Taoism in its religious form in which the priests roll around in the mud to cleanse off their sins, while a high priest summons "the highest god" to forgive the pennants for their sins.

I would be curious if you would be able to tell me more about this ritual, and to precisely what branch of Taoist religion it belongs.
