Traditionally, bank notes are deposited by the faithful and burn at funerals and commemorations services as "burial money".

People remember and worship Kuan Ti not only as a God of War but also as their God of Chivalry and Prosperity. He is also regarded as the Guardian of the Brave, Loyal and Righteous, and so on. However it must be mentioned here that the manners of worship of Kuan Ti at his temples are not necessarily a Buddhist practice although he has earned a place into the Chinese Pantheon. Buddhism may accept and even encourages its followers to revere the gods for their virtues or pray to them for some protection or worldly boons, but they must always be aware that Enlightenment cannot be won by such practices and that their refuge should be sought in the Three Jewels.
