SUI-REN
Also known as SUI-REN-SHI, YEN-DI, YEN-TI

God of Roasting, Boiling, Baking, Frying and Toasting. In other words the God of Cooking Hot Food.

The last of the SAN-HUANG rulers of ancient China, SUI-REN built upon the work of his predecessors FU-XI and SHEN-NONG. They taught mankind how to grow plants and farm animals — he taught mankind how to transform these raw materials into tasty dishes.

His invention of the campfire, which led to the cooking stove, the oven and finally the computer-controlled dual-grill self-cleaning microwave appliance, lifted ancient China from a wild feudal domain to the lofty heights of civilization.

And need we point out that the invention of cooking saved countless lives as bacteria were boiled away? Top marks to SUI-REN and a bowl of noodles please.

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