Introduction of General Xiang Bi & Zhu Tou (道教護法象鼻豬頭雙使者簡介)

A lot of People had been asking/finding out from Jave on these 2 interesting Generals of Taoism, why these 2 Generals got an Elephant head and a Pig Face.

After finding indepth into our Taoist Records, finally Jave is able to do a simple write up on them.

According to our Taoist Records, Xiang Bi (Elephant Head 象鼻使者) & Zhu Tou (Pig Face 豬頭使者) were being recorded far before Tang Dynasty in the Ritual Books on “Summoning of Celestial Marshals for the Guiding of the Ritual Premises (佈壇召請法兵儀式)”.

In the Books, they mentioned that Xiang Bi & Zhu Tou were 2 subordinates of Heavenly Marshal Zhao Gong Ming (龍虎玄壇趙天君) and part of the “Hei Sha Jun aka Black Entities Spiritual Armies” of the Northern Celestial Heavenly Military Department (北極天兵), which was directly under Heavenly Emperor Zi Wei & Tian Huang (紫微及天皇大帝).

Besides that, whenever the Five Dukes of Ceasing & Spreading Plagues aka Wu Bing Ling Gong (瘟疫部主宰五部靈公) appeared, Xiang Bi & Zhu Tou were also appeared by their side to assist in assisting in the Punishing of the Bad-doers and Saving the Good-beings.

In Song Dynasty, these 2 Generals were quite well known and in most of the Taoist Rituals/Ceremonies, their Titles were appeared whereas later part, they were being mix-up with the 2 Assistants or Daughters of Dou Mu Yuan Jun (斗姆元君之護法/女兒) known as Qing Yang Tuo Luo (擎羊陀羅二聖者).

In Ming Dynasty, after the re-arranging of the Taoist Deities System, these 2 Generals were being forgotten and were somehow being known as 2 “Imported Deities” from the Indian Hinduism Deities System during Tang Dynasty.

So do they have names?

Yes, in Taoist Records, there were 2 sets of Names being recorded for them:

First Set:

Known as Yang Zhang (楊章) for Xiang Bi and Geng Zhong (耿忠) for Zhu Tou.

Actually this Set of Names were referring to Qing Yang Tuo Luo at Song Dynasty, whereas later, some Taoist Contexts included them into the Heavenly 36 Generals Group (後被收入進道教三十六天罡名列).

Second Set:

Known as for Li Jie (李潔) for Xiang Bi and Zhang Deng (張登) for Zhu Tou.

This Set of Names appeared in the “Summoning of Celestial Marshals for the Guiding of the Ritual Premises (佈壇召請法兵儀式)” and from what Jave know while practising the Lv Shan Spiritual Skills, this Set was being imported into Lv Shan Spiritual Skills Record in late Ming Dynasty (後收入進道教閭山門派玄法之中).

So what is their Major Task?

With the Records shown, the Major Task of these 2 Generals were to assist Heavenly Marshal Zhao Gong Ming in issuing Spiritual Armies to stand by at the respective Points/Boundary, preventing any form of Black Magic/Negative Entities from Invading while a Ritual/Ceremony was on-going.

Besides that, once these 2 Generals were being provoked by any form of the Negative Energies, both of them were transformed into Gigantic-form and with a blow, they were eliminate or cleanse all the Nasty Entities.

So meaning that the placement of the 2 Boys of Ushering Wealth and Collecting of Gems standing beside Zhao Gong Ming are not correct?

Can say so.

If we will to understand the whole background of Zhao Gong Ming and the actual Task of Zhao Gong Ming, it is not difficult to know that, actually Zhao Gong Ming is associated with Wealth in the Mortal World but not Distributing Wealth to the Mortals for No Reason. And this is why, by placing the 2 Assistants of Zhao Cai Jin Bao (招財進寶童子), it may seems inappropriate. If anyone whom can place Xiang Bi & Zhu Tou by the side of Zhao Gong Ming, it will be more Official and allowing the Actual Culture to pass-down.

So can Normal Devotees honour them?

Of cos can, but it is unnecessary to Honour them at Home as, this combination is usually mend for Big Temples, Taoist Schools or Places that practise Taoist Spiritual Skills.

Malaysia Yong Peng Qing Tian Temple Annual Celebration 2011 (西馬永平新港青天宮辛卯年桂月慶典)

Million Thanks to Bro Chee Seng and Sis-in-law for inviting Jave to go over to Qing Tian Temple (青天宮) located at Malaysia Yong Peng, Xin Gang Village (西馬永平新港), whereas the Family of Sis-in-law Cherie was one of the few Main Contributors of this Temple. The Temple was celebrating the Anniversary of General Hong Gong (洪公聖君) aka the Sworn Brother of Zhang Gong Fa Zhu (張公法主).

On the 20 Sept (the 3rd Day Celebration – Actual Day), we arrived in Malaysia at about 9.30Pm, with about 1.5 hours of travelling, we reached at Yong Peng at about 11.30Pm, just before the Anniversary Honouring started at 12.00Noon.

By the time we arrived at the Temple, it was already crowded with Devotees and the Villagers. Just as advised by Sis-in-law Cherie on the reaction that the people might had on us, I was really surprised to notice that, All of them stared at us when we arrived, just like Long-time Lost Family Members had returned home.

As usual, we were being warmly welcomed by Sis-in-law Cherie’s Mum. Just as Jave was chatting with the Mum, she told us that the Temple had bought the Land and New Temple would be building in No-time when the Funding was ready for the construction.

Just when we arrived, the Home-cooked Hokkien Mee (福建面) cooked by Sis-in-law Cherie’s Father was ready and so, we were being asked to have our Lunch first and Jave could say that the Hokkien Mee was superb Delicious and Special that outside stores couldn’t find.

Just as we finished our Meal, the Temple committee gathered all of us to station outside the Temple and we were informed that the Honouring was going to start after the Opera Actors paid their respect to the Deities.

With the Leader of the Temple reciting the Spiritual Petition to the Deities, 3 loud cheers were being shouted by the Devotees and Villagers and with a sudden, the Fire Crackers were being lighted, it was scary but the feeling was good, cos for us Singaporeans, we had missed the sound of Fire Crackers for many many years, just as what I told Bro Chee Seng, it was a form of different style “Cleansing” for us – the Busy Singaporeans.

Immediately after the Fire Crackers stopped, the Sending Off of paper offerings were being conducted by a big group of Happy and Cheerful Members of the Temple.

Upon the completion of the Honouring, we left the Temple to proceed to Sis-in-law Cherie’s Childhood Home to rest for a while before we went for a short tour in the Viilage.

By 4.00pm, we arrived back at the Temple to have our Dinner. Again, a Home Cooked style Dinner and All the Food was wonderful, especially the Yong Tau Foo (釀豆腐) prepared by Sis-in-law Cherie’s Mum and the Curry Mutton by Sis-in-law Cherie’s Brother-in-law – Zhi Wei.

By 5.30pm, we left Yong Peng to head home, worrying that there might be Traffic Jam due to the Rainy Weather.

It was indeed an enjoying trip to see the way the other Countries’ Temple Celebration. For this Temple, the Celebration may be simple, but the feeling was totally different. Its filled with a Homely Atmosphere and the whole environment seems like we had returned back to the 70s.

Some Special Features that we see:

1 – In Malaysia, we still can see Homes inviting their own Deities to Temples during Celebrations

2 – Few Storeys high Long Incenses being offered to Deities

3 – Very Unique and Official of Setting-up the Spiritual Armies Territory

4 – Different Temples around the Area will send Gifts to the Celebration Temple as a form of Respect

Fei Jie Fu Mid Autumn Celebration for Xin Mao Year 2011 (正一龍山飛捷府仲秋朝禮月佬儀式)

After a massive preparation for this Special Event, finally the day had arrived.

PS: All Offerings must be in Red or Pink color, shape must be Round. Not only that, Offerings must be associated with Marriage, Relationships/etc. Million Thanks to Vabien’s Mum – Aunt Catherine, for preparing the White & Red Flower Baskets. These 2 colored Flowers are to request for Blessings for All Guys and Gals (regardless of Beings) for Good Relationship (所有供品只能以紅色及粉紅為主。供花也只能以紅白為主。其他顏色花朵﹐易招爛桃花).

Must really thank Vabien for making initiative to conduct this Ritual, cos this Culture of Honouring Lord Yue Lao had somehow being lost in South-East Asia.

On the 14th Noon, we arrived at Vabien’s Home and most of the Offerings were being set up.

By the time the Clock strikes 6.30Pm, the Ritual was ready to commence. Just as we were about Sound the Spiritual Musical Instruments to initiate the beginning of the Ritual, heavy rain poured. Everyone was quite disappointed cos they worried that on that night, the Moon wouldn’t be showing “herself” due to the thick cloud and haze.

But, just as Jave finished writing the Talismans to request for the “Opening of Heavenly Gate (開天儀式)”, something strange happened (as for this, Jave will leave it to the others to explain).

With the completion of the Opening of the Heavenly Gate, the Reporting to the Celestial Realm was being conducted and followed by ushering in the various Deities that were involved in this Ritual. After the ushering, Vabien was to represent the whole LSM to offer Incenses to the Invited Deities and then, Jave continued to conduct the Dotting Ceremony for the 4 assistants of Lord Yue Lao – Hong Ling Zi (紅靈子), Hong Luan Zi (紅鸞子), Hong Huang Zi (紅凰子) & Hong Xian Zi (紅線子).

Upon the completion, it was the time for us to Honour the Lord Yue Lao and the other Deities that got their Manifestation Anniversary on the 15th Day of Lunar 8 Month.

It took about 30 minutes to conduct the honouring and by then, with the request of Vabien, Jave had conducted the Disconnecting of Negative Relationships (斷孽緣) – cutting of the Black & White Ribbons (剪斷黑白線) and then conducted the Enhancing of Getting Good Relationships Ceremony (增人緣) – getting the Pink Ribbons (敬納紅粉線), for all of them.

And to round off the Ceremony, everyone had to bring back a pair of Da Xiao Yuan Qian (大小緣錢) aka The Big and Small Affinity Coins for all Good Blessings.

Looking at the Clock, it was getting late and so, we decided to send off the Deities and had our Dinner.

Million Thanks to Royce and Vabien for sharing with us the Pictures.

Introduction of Deity of Happiness (迎喜富貴陽春正神)




Upon request by the mass, here’s the introduction of Deity of Happiness:

Deity of Happiness aka Deity of the Spring, was born in Eastern Jin Dynasty (AD 390), 7th Day of Lunar 1st Month (生于東晉孝武帝太元十五年正月初七日), hometown in Du Zhong Shan (都中山) – now in China Hubei Province Ding Zhou City (今河北省定州市).

Due to Deity of Happiness was born during the Lunar New Year period, her father named her as Sun Ji Xiang (孫吉祥), hoping that after her arrival in the Family, the Family would be blessed with Prosperity & Happiness and the Country would be blessed with Peace & Harmony.

Note: The Sun Family was the descendant of Sun Quan of the Three Kingdom (孫家為三國東吳孫權後裔)

By the age of 12, Sun Ji Xiang was able to memorise all the Classics that her father had imparted to her and by 15, she was able to understand what Ge Xuan’s records (葛玄之聞作).

During the Spring Period of AD 406, after learning from her nanny that Lord Bei Dou aka The Great Dipper Lords of the North were be descending on the 7th Day of Lunar 1st Month to provide blessing to those who were there to usher in their arrival, Sun Ji Xiang set-up an Altar at the backyard garden.

Knowing that she was a girl and not quite suitable to meet up with any Male without the permission from the parent, so Sun Ji Xiang asked her maid to borrow a men’s suit from her Brother. After changing, she sincerely waited for the Lords of Bei Dou to arrive at her mansion.

Just as Sun Ji Xiang was about to doze off, a bright Golden Ray shined onto the Altar and with a shock, Sun Ji Xiang woke up and found out that, the Lords of Bei Dou were standing around the Altar waiting to receive the respect that Sun Ji Xiang was presenting.

Due to Sun Ji Xiang was a young girl whom had not encountered seeing such a big group of men, Sun Ji Xiang was shy, so she covered the lower half of her face and made her respect to the Lords.

Upon seeing Sun Ji Xiang paying respect to them, the Lords started to ask Sun Ji Xiang on what request that she wanted.

Firstly, Sun Ji Xiang requested for prolonging of her Parent’s Life and she was granted.

Secondly, Sun Ji Xiang requested for the Lords to bestowed Happiness to the whole Country and she was granted.

And last, just as Sun Ji Xiang was about to request for her marriage, Sun Ji Xiang smiled out to herself which she accidentally pointed to her mouth. After looking at the action of Sun Ji Xiang, the Lords of Bei Dou thought that Sun Ji Xiang was requested for a bunch of Beards to be transformed onto the Face and within moment, the Lords “granted” Sun Ji Xiang’s request.

Upon completing the 3 requests, the Lords of Bei Dou vanished from the Altar which left for another premises. Seeing that the Lords left without listening to her 3rd request, Sun Ji Xiang was blurred and just as she was standing up, she realised that she got a bushes beard on her face.

Note: This is why, till today, the painting or statue of Xi Shen comes with a Female face but with long beard

With horror, Sun Ji Xiang shouted out loud and fainted.

When she woke up, her parent, nanny and maids were by her side and her mother was sobbing sadly.

With the beard on her, Sun Ji Xiang was sad too. So immediately after she rushed out from her bed, she took a scissors and try to cut the beard off, but with several tries, the beard grew back again.

Exhausted, Sun Ji Xiang gave up and sobbed sadly in her room.

Just as the father was out of ideas on what could be done, a Taoist Priest walked into Sun Ji Xiang’s room. After introduction, the Sun Family paid their respect to Priest Sun Tai (孫泰道人).

At a glance, Sun Tai hold on to Sun Ji Xiang’s hand and told her not to cry as this was fated.

Soon, Sun Tai told them that Sun Ji Xiang was actually the Deity that being put in-charge to lead the Four Seasons (掌管天下四季) and was bestowed to look after all the various types of Peach/Plum Blossoms in the Mortal Realm (看守人間百般桃梅花).

Upon knowing the history of Sun Ji Xiang, the whole family was shocked. Just as Sun Tai was about to leave, Sun Ji Xiang requested Sun Tai to assist her.

With permission granted, Sun Tai handled Sun Ji Xiang a Heavenly Manual and advised her to master it.

With 5 years of hardship in performing her self-training, Sun Ji Xiang attained her Immortal-hood at the age of 22 and was being bestowed with the title of Ying Xi Fu Gui Yang Chun Zheng Shen (迎喜富貴陽春正神).

So when is the Best Timing to Honour Xi Shen?

According to Chinese Customs, the following are the few Dates that the Taoists or Chinese that will honour Xi Shen:

1 – On the 1st Day of Lunar 1st Month aka Spring Festival or Lunar New Year (春節/農曆年)

2 – On the 7th Day of Lunar 1st Month aka Birthday of Human-kinds or Ren Sheng Day (人胜节)

3 – On the 15th Day of Lunar 8th Month aka Mid-Autumn Festival (仲秋節)

According to Taoist Culture, it is important to usher in the Deity of Happiness first before ushering in the Deities of Wealth, without the Blessing of Happiness, no matter how we ushered in the Deities of Wealth, the Deities of Wealth won’t be able to arrive the premises of Oneself and this is why, in the later part of the Taoist History, Deity of Happiness was known as the Leader of the various Deities of Wealth & Prosperity (富貴財神之首領).

Other myths of Xi Shen:

According to the Northern Culture of China, on the 1st Day of Lunar 1st Month (大年初一日), the Direction where Xi Shen appeared, the White Soul Grabber aka Bai Wu Chang (白無常) will also appear.

Why Bai Wu Chang appeared?

There are a few saying, 1st Bai Wu Chang was the subordinate of Xi Shen, which assist in giving the necessary blessing to the other Beings.

2ndly, for those who anyhow make requests on the 1st Day of Lunar New Year, their names will be recorded and when time is up, the necessary retributions will be bestowed upon the individuals.

Whereas in the Southern Culture of China, on the 1st Day of Lunar 1st Month (大年初一日), Deities of Wealth will followed behind Xi Shen, once Xi Shen entered into a premises, the rest of the Deities of Wealth will followed and if all the Deities of Wealth, Prosperity and Happiness entered into the premises of oneself, that year, the person or the family will enjoyed all the necessary blessings that Heaven bestowed on them.

LSM Deity of Happiness Dotting Ceremony 2011 (辛卯年正一龍山門迎春喜神聖尊開光儀式)

After delaying for almost half a year, finally LSM is able to conduct the dotting for the Deity of Happiness or known as Ying Chun Xi Shen (迎春喜神).

Special Thanks to Heng Moh Seng Religious Shop for keeping the Statue for LSM, if not, this Statue will have been misused by the other party.

In Taoist Culture, Xi Shen one of the major Deities that lead the other Deities that are put in-charge of Prosperity and this is why, in Taoism, we considered Xi Shen as the Leader of the 12 Official Deities of Wealth, without Xi Shen’s present, the other 11 Deities of Wealth will not be able to bring in any Direct Blessing to the Devotees (喜神為正統道教十二府財神之領袖).

Besides that, Xi Shen is also one of the Deities that will bestow Marriage & Relationship Blessing to the Needy. And according to records, Xi Shen is one of the Subordinates of Tian Yi Zi Huang Tian Zun (喜神為天乙紫皇天尊之屬下).

On the 6th of Lunar 8 Month, which was an Auspicious Day, LSM had conducted the Dotting Ceremony dedicated to Xi Shen at Telok Blangah Tian Gong Temple (新加坡天公廟).

Early in the Morning, most of us had arrived at the Temple to do the necessary set-up and before 11.00Am, the Dotting started.

As usual, the necessary procedures were being practised and when it was time to dot the Statue, Juin Wen and Ruihe were advised to carry the Statue on behalf of the whole LSM.

With the Joyous Shouting of “Hian (顯 meaning Officially Enhanced or Come to Live)”, the Dotting of the Statue was completed.

Upon completion, it was the time for the Chanting of the Taoist Scriptures and with the assistance of LSM members and our dearest Sisters, the Chanting of Qing Jing Jing aka Scripture of Purity and Serenity (太上清靜經) was done.

After then, other Chantings were being conducted and by 5.30Pm, we left the Temple.

Million Thanks to Royce for sharing with us the Pictures.
