LING-ZHI
Also known as REISHI, CHIH-ZHI

Miraculous Holy Sandwich Filling of Immortality

Holy Fodder. It's well worth seeking out, as one good tuck-in ensures immortality for 500 years. It's also prized by DAOists for clearing the mind and has many other miraculous properties.

Descriptions vary from a sort of grass to a mysterious mushroom, and it grows on three islands far from any beaten track. However trespassers may be stoned.

Of course you could try your local health food store. Just ask for Ganoderma Applanatum. It cures all known ills, relieves allergies, treats liver disease and leukemia, elevates the mind, cures depression, and tastes delicious in a sandwich.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ling-zhi graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ling-zhi 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 Ling-zhi statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ling-zhi. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
