How many adherents of Taoism are there?

400 million

Not too many people know that Taoism is an Eastern religion/philosophy.  Believe it or not, there are more than 400 million adherents of Taoism all over the world.  Most of the adherents live in China.  It is important to know the fact that Taoists were heavily persecuted in China after the Communist victory in 1949.  It is interesting to know the fact that this religion emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao (also romanized as Dao).  Keep in mind that Taoism is extremely popular  in regions populated by Chinese people: mainland China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore.
