LAO-JUN
Also known as DAO-DE-TIAN-ZONG, TAI-QING, LAO-CHUN, TAO-TE-T'IEN-TSUN

Member of the [SAN-QING] trinity of supreme [DAO]ist Gods.

LAO-JUN is the deified form of LAO-ZI, who formulated the DAO pathways and taught them to mankind. When not advising the JADE-EMPEROR or attending Peach Banquets, he lives in the Great Pure Heaven (Tai Qing) where he refines his doctrine and contemplates the ineffable.

The YIN and YANG symbols adorn his fan of office, a measure of his importance. In fact he is held in the highest esteem and outranks even YUAN-SHI-TIAN-ZONG, the creator of the Universe.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Lao-jun graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Lao-jun 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. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

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