A picture showing the legend of JUN-DI taken from our Chinese mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Chinese Gods, Chinese Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

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.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Jun-di graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Jun-di movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.

Visitors often email us asking about Jun-di statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Jun-di. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
