The sacrificial rite in the Confucian Temple is a celebration of the birthday of Confucius, held every 28 September in Qufu, his hometown. Participants slowly enter the temple through the main gate then light incense and candles after which devotees bow three times and make offerings of wine and refined white silk, while an address is read. A feast is offered to pay respects to the spirit of Confucius. The rite embodies and promotes the Confucian philosophy transmitted by verbal communication and practical demonstration.
