YANG

The Male Principle of the Universe, and perfect opposite of [YIN]. Together they make the famous Yin-Yang symbol of [DAO]ist thought.

YANG is seen as the macho half of the Universe: strong, bright, sexy, successful, loud, brash and very much in-your-face. Every sun, star and lightbulb is pouring out YANG energy. We at Godchecker also believe that televisions are full of it.

It seems amazing that YANG can possibly share half of creation with its modest opposite YIN. But it does. Only when the two are unbalanced do things go wrong. See our entry on YIN for more info.

Oh, and there is a God of YANG. His name is MU-GONG.

Stay in the loop with Godchecker updates. You can unsubscribe at any time.
We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Yang graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Yang 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 Yang statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Yang. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
