Korean-American Religions. As the millennium turned, nearly a million Americans had Korean ancestors.

This makes Korean Americans the third-largest Asian-American group after Chinese and Filipinos. Many Korean Americans are Buddhists; more are Christians.

In both cases, Korean-American religion is inflected with a marked degree of ethnic nationalism. Buddhists share the Korean religious landscape with both Protestant and Catholic Christians as well as with shamans, Confucians, and practitioners of numerous new religions.

As a result, Korea is a fruitful site for the exploration of the various manifestations of spirituality in the modern world. Before the modern era, Korea did not have a specific term for religion as a separate and distinct form of human activity and organization.

The Korean word that today means “religion”(chonggyo)was coined in Japan at the end of the nineteenth r, Korea recognized three “teachings” that it had imported from China beginning about one thousand five hundred years ago.

The associations between religion/spirituality and anxiety disorders were insignificant and similar to those of prior studies. 11, 15, 16 Though we did not analyze the data by dividing anxiety disorders into panic disorders, social phobias and similar categories as prior studies have, we found no significant association between spiritual values.

Religion and spirituality have played a significant role in humanity's history. Many cultural sights from buildings to festivals and traditions are of a religious nature. Most populated places have at least one place of worship; at least one such place is usually a prominent building, often with more elaborate architecture than secular buildings.

All travellers, religious or not, should learn. Spiritualism is a religious movement based on the belief that the spirits of the dead exist and have both the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living.
