Introduction on Immortal Boys of Releasing & Retrieving of Spiritual Talismans (收符發符童子簡介)

Upon request, here are the Introduction for the 2 Immortal Boys – Releasing of Spiritual Talismans (發符童子) & Retrieving of Spiritual Talismans (收符童子).

Besides that, must Thank Taoist Bro Edwin Tan from Geylang for the contributing of the Pictures.

So who are these 2 Immortal Boys?

According to Mantras & Scripture Records, these 2 Immortal Boys are actually part of the Spiritual Protectors/Assistants that being summoned in Taoist Lv Shan Sect (道教閭山宗派) during Rituals/Ceremonies.

Even though in here, their Titles only tell us that they are In-charge of Releasing & Retrieving of Spiritual Talismans, but actually, they do have a wider range of Tasks to look into.

So what are their Background?

According to the Chanting Records, both of them are Disciples of Lv Shan Fa Zhu Master Long Xuan (閭山法主龍玄祖師).

Both of them were both in Late Part of Yuan Dynasty, starting of Ming Dynasty (生于元朝末年/明朝初期).

Immortal Boy of Releasing Spiritual Talismans (發符童子) was known as Zhong Qian (鐘謙), hometown in China Hokkien Province, Quan Zhou City (祖籍中國福建省泉州市).

Immortal Boy of Retrieving Spiritual Talismans (收符童子) was known as Liu Gui (劉貴), hometown in China Hokkien Province, Fu Zhou City (祖籍中國福建省福州市).

Since young, they were sent to Taoist Monastery due to they were orphans. After years of training and learning, both of them were being equipped with the knowledge of Spiritual Skills, including the Releasing & Retrieving of Spiritual Talismans.

One year, while they were being advised to assist one of their Seniors to subdue a Demon in the nearby County, both of them were being killed by the Poisonous Gas and on the spot, Master Long Xuan had to summon their Souls back to the Celestial Realm for Cultivation. This day was the 3rd Day of Lunar 4 Month (農曆四月初三日) and so, till today, we Lv Shan Priests will still conduct a simple Ritual dedicating to the both of them on this day to mark their Credits.

In Ming Dynasty, after Lv Shan Sect was being more recognised and properly formed (at that time was known as Officially Jing Ming Zhong Xiao Dao 淨明忠孝道), most of such Spiritual Characters were being introduced to the Public and also the Taoist Followers.

In Qing Dynasty, these 2 Immortal Boys were being group together with the one of the 12 Disciples of Immortal Mother Li Shan (黎山老姆), known as Sun Kun (孫坤) or Li Yu (黎玉) to form the Spiritual Group known as San Tong Zi (三童子).

By then, these 3 Immortal Boys were being appointed to take charge of the Spiritual Tasks of Releasing of Spiritual Talismans, Retrieving of Spiritual Talismans, Ushering in & out of the Appointed Positive Energies during Dotting Ceremony, Issuing of Spiritual Armies, etc.

PS: Another combination of San Tong Zi (三童子) is, Releasing of Spiritual Talismans (發符童子), Retrieving of Spiritual Talismans (收符童子) & Protecting Urn (顧爐童子).

So where can we find their Titles during Chanting?

Their Titles can easily be seen in Mantras that are related with Issuing of Talismans, especially Rituals/Ceremonies that are related with Folks Lv Shan Culture or Sintua Medium Culture.

Usually their Titles will be placed together with San Shi aka The Three Spiritual Masters (三師) to form the Spiritual Group known as San Shi San Tong Zi (三師三童子).

So who are the San Shi?

For the San Shi, there are quite a number of Combination, in here, I will only mentioned the 2 more Popular Groups:

1 – Master Long Xuan (龍玄祖師), Master Wan Fa (萬法祖師) & Master Bian Hua (變化祖師)

Master Long Xuan, one of the Spiritual Masters in Lv Shan Lineage.

Master Wan Fa, one of the Spiritual Masters in Lv Shan Lineage that in-charge of certain groups of Spiritual Skills.

Master Bian Hua, one of the Spiritual Masters in Lv Shan Lineage that in-charge of Multiplying the Spiritual Energies or so-called Enhancing.

2 – Master Long Shu (龍樹祖師), Master Xuan Tian (玄天師相) & Zhang Gong Fa Zhu (張公法主)

Master Long Shu, one of the Common Spiritual Masters in the Lv Shan Lineage that in-charge of Talisman Skills. He was being imported into the Lv Shan Lineage due to his popularity and also his well-known Spiritual Skills. In Tibetian Buddhism, he was one of the Highest Spiritual Masters that the Followers will honour for Blessing.

Master Xuan Tian, one of the Official Taoist Deities that being well-known for Imparting Spiritual Skills. In Commoner Taoist Culture, Xuan Tian was known as the one that in-charge of giving the Authorities to the Taoist Priests of releasing Taoist Skills.

Zhang Gong Fa Zhu, one of the Taoist Deities that in-charge of the Authority of the Five Thunders (五雷).

In Summary

In the future, while you are out in any Temple Events or Sintua Celebrations, do keep a close “hear out” for the Chanting of Mantras, you will be able to find the Titles of San Shi San Tong Zi (三師三童子) being mentioned during the Ushering in of the Energies for Mediums or while Drawing of Talismans.

By around 3.00Pm, the Honouring Ceremony was done and the Sending Off of the Paper Offerings was done by shifting ALL the Paper Items down to the Open Field under the Block. Thanks to Gerald Lim for calling the HDB Board for the requesting of the multiple Cans for the Burning.

After the Sending Off of the Paper Offerings, we were able to have a short rest and reward ourselves by having a Good & Wonderful Meal. Thanks to Vabien’s Mum for preparing the Good Food for us.

At about 8.00Pm in the Evening, it’s the Final Ceremony for the Day. After preparing the necessary Items, the Ceremony for the Salvation of the Wandering Souls was being conducted and this time round, Vabien was there to conduct the Invitation of Heavenly Lord Tai Yi (太乙救苦天尊), Cleansing & Enhancing of the Water and last, to summon the Wandering Souls for the collecting of the Offerings.

Taoist Quote Sharing: Mirror of Oneself (鏡之道)


Last Week, while do preparation for Long Shan Men’s (正一龍山門) 1135th Anniversary Initiation Celebration at Fei Jie Fu (正一龍山飛捷府), Jave was being summoned by an Elder (from China) of Long Shan Men (龍山門長老 – 道號鼎昇) whom came to pay his visit to one of our Old Temples in Singapore.

During the meeting, while Jave making some minor reports to him on the Taoism Situations happened in Singapore, he was somehow calm and “generating” some replies in his mind and after a while, he get back to me with this following phrases:

Chang Yi Ta Ren Wei Jing. Guan Qi Yan Yu Xing Wei

Translated as: Using the Others as a form of Mirror Reflection for Oneself, may it be Right or Wrong, Oneself shall learn from their Behaviour & Reactions

Yi Ci Wei Jing Ti Er Bu Wang Ben Shen Zhi Hui Ying

Translated as: By understanding their Behaviour & Reactions, Oneself will be able to learn from the Rights & Wrongs and will be able to avoid making the same Mistakes that other had made

De Qi Ren Zhi Er Xi Qi Zhi Wu

Translated as: Only truthfully understand the Right & Wrong, then Oneself will be able to Understand the Others more. This Theory is the same as Accepting Oneself in-order for Oneself to be accepted or accepting the others

Gai Qi Shi Er De Qi Zheng

Translated as: Eliminate the Wrong and Keeping the Right, the Right will be able to lead Oneself far from beyond and reach the Ultimate Aim of Oneself

Bu Wang Wei Xiu Dao Ren Yi

Translated as: This is what a Cultivating Taoist shall behaviour & Practise (this also applies to ALL Public)

After listening to these Phrases from the Elder, Jave have somehow clear certain doubts upon his Preaching.

Due to this Preaching was being mentioned & relay on Mirror, so Jave had decided to name it as

Mirror of Oneself

And in Chinese as Dao of the Mirror (鏡之道).

Featured: Singapore Local News on Voodoo Bags on Street (神秘咒囊懸大路)


Reported on Lianhe Wanbao 21 Jun 2010 (Monday)
Thanks to Bro Raymond of API for the translation of the Article.

A national serviceman passing by a pedestrian bridge in Upper Bukit Timah was shocked to see two strange mysterious bags tied up and hang on two tall trees.

He alerted API Charles and Raymond Goh, who decided to drop by to investigate.

The location of the two voodoo bags

API found that the strange objects were being hung high on two trees just next to the pedestrian crossing

On closer examination of the two strange objects, they looked like dirty bags being tied up by strings

One of them has two iron nails piercing into the bundle, with another iron nail and chilli tied on top of the bundle, as if securing the bundle.

API Raymond took them out of the trees for closer examination.

Raymond then decided to open the bundle for investigation. The bundle with the chilli and iron nails actually contains a rotten lime that turns mouldy

The other bundle contains two pieces of wood like structure

Both the lime and the wood are wrapped in tissue papers.


API Explanation:

As Indians used to use lime and chilli to ward off evil spirits and bad luck, API theory is that this is a sort of Indian ritual whereby a person supposedly get rid of bad luck and evil influences by disposing of the bad luck absorbed through the lime, wrapped up with tissue paper, and with the help of the iron nails which helped to nail the bad luck (iron nail is supposed to control evil spirits), secured with the chilli, and then hang it away on a tree to dispose away the bad luck and evil influence.
The wood also are used in the ritual, and have to be disposed off similarly.

As the person doing this ritual may find difficulty to hang the disposed "bad luck bundle" in a tree, he has chosen the location of the bridge whereby he has just hang the bundle onto the tree without any problem (You can reach out and touch the tree when you are going down the staircase of the bridge)

After examining the two bags, we then burned them off.

Burning the voodoo bag

Other explanations

1) It can also be a form of cleansing ritual, whereby the evil influences are absorbed by the lime, controlled by the iron nails, and then disposed off by hanging onto the trees.

Jave Wu theory

Jave Wu, Long Shan Men Taoist Sect Leader, said that the voodoo bag pierced with the nails has 3 meanings:

1) To take a life

2) A curse for no descendents

3) A curse for bad luck

If the bag is hung on a papaya, guava or banana tree, it is a curse for no descendents. However, since this is a common tree, Jave believed it is a curse for a person to undergo bad luck

Priest Wu further pointed out that the cursed person's name and 8 characters probably would have been written onto the two pieces of wood during the ritual, with the lime and chilli fencing off outside
interferences during the ritual, hence the two voodoo bags are related.

For the cursed person, it is better for the person to seek a Taoist priest to remove the curse

Atttitude of Learning & Teaching (學習與教學)


As a Student or Disciple, Oneself must accept Oneself in-order to allow the others to accept Oneself and also for Oneself to accept all the Preaching & Teachings of the Teacher or Master or the others.

Remember the Role of a Student or Disciple:

Learn with Interest

Once Oneself is able to learn with Interest, the feeling will last long and it will make Oneself to have the strong urge to learn more and understand more.

If Oneself is lack of interest, then Oneself will just be like an Empty Shell, only allowing the Teacher or Master to fill up the Blank and then thats it. Which it defeats the purpose of Learning and Craving for being Taught.

As a Teacher or Master, Oneself must be able to accept and reject any form of Requests & Knowledge bounce back to Oneself. This is important as it will assist Oneself to gain the necessary Right Mindset to perform One's Teaching, Sharing & Preaching. Never allowed Oneself to be Pull-along while giving teaching, preaching and sharing.

Thus, remember the Role of a Teacher or Master:

Teach with Passion
Preach with Uprightness
Share with Concern

If Oneself is lack of passion, then Oneself is just like a Mono-tone Radio giving out Sounds only. Whether Oneself's Students or Disciples got the message or not, it is of no concern of Oneself, which will end up leading to Un-rightfulness and ignorants.

Try to be more alert in the Teaching, Preaching and Sharing, cos all these will Mould a Person to a better Person and assist a lesser Wise Man to become a Man of Wisdom.

Last of All, Happy Learning and also, Joyous Teaching.

Introduction on Summer Solstice (一年之半夏至日)


Time flies and now, its almost Half a year is gone.

In Lunar Fifth Month, besides celebrating the Dumpling Festival (端午節 eating of Rice Dumpling and enjoying Dragon Boat Racing), another important Day to celebrate will be Summer Solstice (夏至, Year 2010, it falls on 21 June, a Monday).

Summer Solstice, as important as Winter Solstice, it’s a day for the Family to gather and also for the Workers to rest. Of cos, in the modern era today, every minute is considered as Gold-worthing-moment, so now we cant really sit down and relax and have an enjoyable Summer Solstice, but in the past (Ancient Era), Summer Solstice is an Official Off Day for All working adults.

Why this Day is so Important?

1st, this is a Day that the Imperial Court promote Reunion & Gathering for Families & Friends. This is to strengthen the Bonding of the Society and also to show the Compassionate of the Imperial Court or Emperor

2nd, to show Filial Piety towards our Parents & Past-on Ancestors of the Family. On this Day, Special Honouring will be conducted for Deities & Ancestors, this is to thank them for providing the necessary Blessing

3rd, to allow the Plantation/Farm Plot to have a rest before the next round of Ploughing or Field-work starts. This is important as certain Plantation Lands do need enough rest in-order to produce enough minerals for the Plants, if not, at the end of the Year, the harvesting will be affected and it will affect the whole Food Chain-cycle and also, the total income of the Nation

Lastly, an Important Day for Taoism. As this Day, in some Contexts, it is the Manifestation Anniversary/Feast Day of Supreme Lord Ling Bao (上清靈寶天尊) of the Three Pure Ones (三清道祖)

So what are the Special Items that can be seen on this Day?

In the Ancient Era, Taoists or Chinese will prepared Sweet Dumpling aka Tang Yuan (湯圓) for the honouring of Deities & Ancestors.

Besides that, People will also ground Wheat to make Wheat Noodles or Biscuits for consuming. This is to celebrate that Half a Year had pass Smoothly, hoping that the next Half a Year can also be Peaceful and Prosperity.

Not only on the normal consumption, Chinese will also start to do certain necessary preparation for the Peak of the Summer to arrive, such as consuming Cooling Herbs, Balancing of the Physical Health, if not, once Oneself is being infected by the “Summer Fever”, the reason can be fatal.

So in Singapore, where can Oneself performed the Honouring for Summer Solstice?

In Singapore, Oneself can visit any Jade Emperor of Heaven Temples (玉皇大天尊廟宇) to pay your Respect or Honouring, from there, Oneself can make your Request to the Celestial Realm for Blessing.

Besides that, Taoist Mission of Singapore (新加坡道教協會) will also conduct Summer Solstice Honouring for Ling Bao Tian Zun (靈寶天尊), for those who are interested in participate, can contact them with this Website Link:

Introduction on Bai Shou Qian – Hundred Longevity Paper (百壽錢簡介)


After a long rest, Jave is back in here to do some postings again.

Today, Jave will like to do a quick and simple introduction on a Long Lost Practise on the using of Bai Shou Qian aka The Hundred Longevity Paper for Anniversary Honouring aka Birthday Respect for Deities.

According to Old Traditional Practise in the Past that Taoist or Chinese practised, during the Anniversary Celebration for Deities, Taoists or Chinese would engaged Calligraphy Writers to prepare a Big Piece of Paper Honouring with Hundreds of Chinese Character of Longevity being written on it. After which, after the Honouring was being conducted, this Piece of Big Paper would be burnt off together with other Paper Offerings for the Deities as a form of Highest Respect and also, a form of Birthday Greeting.

Slowly, after Printing Skills became popular in China, Moulds for the Printing of Hundred Longevity (百壽) & Prosperity (百福) were being invented. With such Moulds, the Speed of Printing increased and the Production was multiplied and within a short period, the using of such Bai Shou Qian was being spread around in the Whole Country.

Due to Chinese believed that the Shape Round represent Reunion, Fullest, Smoothness & Happiness, in no time, the Moulds for Printing of the Bai Shou Qian or Bai Fu Qian had changed from Square to Round form (see Picture 00).

So what is the Main Purpose of using Bai Shou Qian?

Besides showing our Highest Respect for the Deities on the Anniversary Honouring, Bai Shou Qian can also be used to request for Health Blessing & Prolonging of Lifespan of a Person, especially those who are encountering Serious Sicknesses or suffering from Long Term Illnesses.

Not only that, for Elderly who are celebration the Grand Birthday at Lunar 60 Years Old (六十甲子大壽), this Bai Shou Qian can also be honoured to the Deities for the requesting of Good Luck Blessing.

For Elderly who are above Lunar 100 Years Old, then they can stop using such Paper.

PS: In the Modern Era now, most of the People will only buy Scrolls with the Writing of Hundred Longevity or Prosperity for Hanging during Big Occasions rather then using them as a form of Paper Offerings.

Can this Paper be burnt Regularly?

Yes, you may.

One piece at a time will do.

Do remember to write Oneself’s Name & Lunar Date of Birth or the Person-whom-you-wished-to-bless’s Name & Lunar Date of Birth on the Bottom Left Hand Corner of the Paper, after then, do a simple report to the Deities on the requesting for the Blessing. Once the report is done, burnt off the Paper Offerings and it will consider completed.

Best timing for Honouring of this Paper will be – on the 9th Day of Lunar 9 Month (農曆九月初九日).

So where can Oneself get this Paper?

For the moment, in South East Asia, it is totally impossible to find such Paper, but if Oneself is keen & interested in honouring this Paper, Oneself can download the Picture from here and print it on an A4 Red or Orange Paper.

In Summary:

Last of All, remember while using this Paper as Offering, do not make any un-necessary request. A Simple & Sincere reporting or honouring will enhanced the Blessing in multiple folds.
