Fu (incantation), also called Fuzhou (Taoist magic). Incantation is a type of Taoist ritual activity; Taoist priests write letters or draw patterns on yellow paper or papers of other colors. The general public believes that by doing so, evil spirits can be driven away. In ancient Chinese medicine, the specialty of Zhu You, incantation and psychology, cured diseases by drawing incantation figures.
