CHINESE MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of the Middle Kingdom...

LAO-JUN

Chinese Supreme God

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

One of the Supreme Daoist Trinity

Member of the SAN-QING trinity of supreme DAOist 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.
