JUN-DIAlso known as CHUN-TI
The [DAO]ist Goddess of Light.A lot of piggery-pokery here. She has three heads, one of which is a pig, and has a chariot which seems to be pulled by pigs (although it is claimed they are the seven stars of the Great Bear).
It all seems a bit star-spangled — JUN-DI lives in the Pole Star and holds up the Sun and Moon. After this it gets a bit complicated as she also holds an amazing assortment of items from a lotus flower to a dragon's head.
We haven't a clue what her mission is, although she is wise and benevolent. Sailors sought her protection, so perhaps she runs a Seaman's Mission.
