As with sacrificial rituals in general, Jongmyo jerye consists of procedures to welcome the royal spirits, to make offerings of gifts, food, and wine (three times), and to see the spirits off. The ritual has been passed down as an art and ceremony meticulously observing Yeaksasang (禮樂思想) principles, the Confucian ideal and the governing ideology of the Joseon Dynasty, as the instrumental music, song, and dance are performed together in each step of the rite.
