天醫府院滋陰真人朱震亨 The Immortal Physician Zhu Zhen Heng





朱丹溪,名震亨,字彥修。因世居丹溪,故人稱朱丹溪,或尊稱為丹溪翁。

元代義烏(今浙江省义乌市)人。與劉完素、張從正、李杲等人並稱金元四大醫學家,為“滋陰派”的創始人。

生于公元一二八一年農曆葭月廿八日﹐歸天於公元一三五八年農曆蒲月初八日﹐享壽七十八。

朱丹溪生活在元末的南方,當時因連年戰爭,苟捐雜稅極重,增加了人民群眾的負擔,營養條件很差,身體柔弱,加之江南地土卑弱,氣候炎熱,濕熱相火為病甚多,病家多易傷陰。但是,當時醫界盛行用辛燥藥較多的《局方》治病,非但治不好病,反而加重病情,甚至造成死亡。為了糾正這一偏向,朱氏用清滋之品,頗能見效,因而自然就提倡養陰之法,即所謂“陽常有餘,陰常不足”之論點。他所創立的養陰派學說及其著作,大大豐富了中國醫學對病因、病機的認識及處方用藥的內容和範圍,對中國醫學的發展有較大的貢獻,受到後世醫家很高評價,亦為國外醫家所重視。

一生之中著有多部醫典﹕《格致餘論》、《丹溪心法》、《金匮钩玄》、《醫學發明》、《局方發揮》、《本草衍義補遺》、《素問糾略》。

常行”天醫聖科”的同道好友們應該對他蠻熟的。

Immortal Physician Zhu Zhen Heng, also known as Zhu Dan Xi, was born in Yuan Dynasty 28th Day of Lunar 11 Month and got his Departure on 08th Day of Lunar 5 Month.

His hometown was in China Zhejiang Province Yi Wu City.

Due to his great contribution in the Chinese Medical Society, he was being named as One of the Four famous Physicians of the Yuan & Jin Dynasty, with him are the other Three Physicians known as Liu Wan Shu, Zhang Cong Zheng & Li Gao.

In Taoism, they were being honoured under the Immortal Physician Group and was being bestowed with various Official Taoist Titles.

During the Ritual of the Healing for the Beings, all these Immortal Physicians are invited for the Enhancing of the Herbs.

陳六公鑒語 – 天底孝為先 Quote from Chen Liu Gong


本門得到了福州古田陳六公的允許請回分靈香火後﹐祂本身還交代我們將以下鑒語傳達給眾人﹕

After Long Shan Men got the approval from Chen Liu Gong to invite his Lineage back to Singapore, Chen Liu Gong personally advised us to share the following Quote with All People/Taoists;

没有上天﹐没有祖先。Without Heaven, there wont be Ancestors.
没有祖先﹐没有我们。Without Ancestors, there wont be Us.

北馬道修之旅 Spiritual Travelling to Northern Malaysia 2013


北馬之行總算告一段落。

在為事主劉家(彭城劉皇叔直系后裔)解決其祖先事宜之後﹐效果確實得到了改善,劉家後人在當晚就得到了祖先的回應﹐接著受到護佑﹐小道深感安慰﹐也不枉此次遠行之苦。

再来是得到了福州古田陳六公本身之允許而得以分靈香火至新加坡座镇﹐此為陳六公初次前來新加坡﹐實乃本門之荣幸。

三来是得以福州楊柳二将軍賞賜本門两副藥簽做為傳承濟世之用﹐小道心存感激。

三無量。
大道心。

癸巳蛇年冬至日 Winter Solstice for Year 2013


Time flies and Time passes, its again the end period of a Lunar Year and so, All Taoists and Chinese will be preparing to celebrate the Winter Solstice Festival aka Dong Zhi Day.

For Year 2013, Dong Zhi Day aka Winter Solstice falls on 22 Dec, a Sunday, starting time at 02:05 Hours  (癸巳蛇年農曆十一月二十日丑時始).

So what is Winter Solstice?

According to Scientific Explanation, Winter Solstice is a Day of the starting of the change of the Weather and also the Sun-shining duration for both the North & South Hemisphere (南北半球).
And so, from this Day onwards, the Sun-shine Duration for the North Hemisphere will be shorter and vice-versa for the South Hemisphere.

And this is why, in one of our Old Hokkien Saying, for those Lazy Ladies who are not able to wake up early in the Morning, she wont be able to finish her chores in A Day.

So what Winter Solstice means in Chinese Custom?

In Chinese Custom, Winter Solstice Festival will be the Day for the Chinese to celebrate their Harvesting of the Year and also to have a Reunion Gathering with the Family Members.

Besides that, Taoists and Chinese will have to pay respect to Deities & Ancestors, returning the Gratitude to them for the necessary Blessings for the Year.

In Taoist Records, this is a Day that Taoists will visit Temples to pay respect to Deities in-order to request for Blessings and also, the eliminating of debts and sins. In some Big Taoist Temples, Priests will conduct Rituals/Ceremonies for Taoists and other Followers to participate in.

So what are the Traditional Items that are associated with Winter Solstice Festival?

In Ancient Era, the Chinese will prepared Buns, Pastry, etc, to celebrate whereas in Summer Period, Chinese will prepare Noodles for the Celebration.

After a certain period, Chinese changed they habit of eating Buns & Pastry to eating of Sweet Dumplings aka Tang Yuan (湯圓).

Tang Yuan, shape in Round or Ball, represent Reunion, Happiness and Full. This does not only represent Reunion for the Family but also, represent having a Nice Round-off for the Years’ Harvesting.

Till today, the Chinese still practice the consuming of Tang Yuan to get the Blessing of Reunion and Happiness.

So how and what to prepare for the Honouring of Deities and Ancestors?

For those who have Altars, dedicating to Deities and Ancestors, at home, remember to wake up early in the Morning to prepare the Tang Yuan aka Ee.

Nowadays, due to busy working life of the Modern Adults, Tang Yuan can be brought from Supermarket in Ready-made packing. Oneself just need to get a little bundle of Pandan Leaves and a pack of Red/Brown sugar and the cooking of Tang Yuan will be able to take place.

After the cooking is ready, scoop the Tang Yuan into 3 Bowls for offering to the Deities and at least 2 Bowls for the Ancestors (1 bowl for Male Ancestors and other for Female Ancestors).

Remember to prepare some Paper Offerings such as Tian Gong Jin (天公金) and Shou Jin (壽金) for Deities, Gold & Silver Papers (金銀紙) for Ancestors.

Wait for about 15 minutes; send off the Paper Offerings for the Deities and after 3 rounds of Offering Incenses to Ancestors, the Gold & Silver Papers can be sent off.

Usually after the Offering, the Tang Yuan can be retrieved back and distributed out to the Family Members for eating. Do not throw them away, cos All consuming items on Dong Zhi Day cannot be waste.

In order not to left the Altar empty, after retrieving the Tang Yuan from the Altar, oneself can prepared a set of Five Oranges to replace the Tang Yuan.

Dong Zhi Da Guo Nian (冬至大過年)

In Chinese, we have a Saying of Dong Zhi Da Guo Nian (冬至大過年), meaning that, Dong Zhi Day is a Day that worth Celebrating and this Celebrating must be as Grand as the Celebration of Lunar New Year.

Why is there such a practice?

According to Chinese Belief, Winter Solstice is a Day of Changes not only in the Weather and Sun-shining Duration, but also the Luck and the Natural Element in the 3 Realms.

During these Changes, certain Elements in one’s Spiritual & Physical Body will also be changed. For those who encountered Negative Issues in the Year, after this Day, the Negative Issues will be eliminated and by doing Requesting of Blessings, hoping that the following Days of the Year will be Blessed with Good Luck.

And this is why, on this Day, Taoists and Chinese will have to prepare for a Grand Celebration, such as wearing new Clothing, consuming of Good Items, visit Temples, etc, to gain the Happiness and Good Blessing from the Deities and Big Dao.

癸巳蛇年孟山天君聖誕吉慶 Manifestation Anniversary of Heavenly Marshal Meng Shan 2013


On 15th Day of Lunar 11 Month (農曆十一月十五日), it is considered as the Manifestation Anniversary of Heavenly Marshal Jiang Xian Guan (為孟山天君聖之誕), in some other Taoist Contexts, the Anniversary was recorded as 12th Day of Lunar 8 Month too (又有記載為農曆八月十二日).

For Year 2013, it falls on 17 Dec, a Tuesday.

相傳孟元帥是為了説明感化囚犯受到玉帝嘉獎而被封為陰間元 帥的。 據《三教源流搜神大全》稱:孟元帥 名 孟山,本是個獄官。為人仁義孝慈,敢作敢為。 一年,將到年底,監獄裡的囚犯們都很思念家中的親人,傷心落淚。孟山看了十分同情,心想:誰沒有父母親人?犯人也是人,也該讓他們見見親人 。孟山遂與囚犯們約定:臘月二十五日放他們回家與親人團聚、過年,正月初五按 期返回監獄。犯人們感泣而去。到了正月初五,犯人們都按期返回,沒有一個誤期或逃跑的。 以後,年年如此,成為慣例。

久之,孟山思索:“囚犯們一念思親,孝也;信而四時,義也。 既孝義且信,可感化他們使他們改過自新。”於是,祂對犯人們說:“假如赦免了你們,能改善嗎?”犯人們說:“我等已犯了罪,豈可一錯再錯?誰願死心塌地的幹一輩子壞事?”孟山說:“汝等真能改過,我就全放了你們。” 囚犯們泣日:“這是在閻王殿上得到輪回轉世!可我們逃走了,您怎麼辦?若是您為我們而死,我等活不如死。” 孟山說:“以一人死而活百人之命,何慮焉!”眾囚皆泣曰:“君如此寬厚,恩莫大焉。我等碎身難報。”孟山遂將他們放走。不料,上司滕知府知道此事,把孟山抓來鞭打了一頓, 並限令祂把釋放的八百名囚徒全部抓回,少一個即處死祂。孟山自思難以覆命,便在窯中引槍自殺,但連續三次未遂 , 因為有一隻白兔三次撞 倒其槍。

玉帝聞之,即救封其為“酆都殺鬼大元帥”。 時元帥尚未釋其鎗于手,即加贈黃龍鎗,以便降妖伏魔,帥乃知受封也。宋初為其塑像建廟並加以將軍封號﹐之後得以賜誥。

Tai Yi Tian Zun (太乙天尊) aka Tai Yi Xun Sheng Jiu Tian Zun (太乙尋聲救苦天尊) or Tai Yi Ci Fu (太乙慈父).

In Taoism, he is the main key-person who is being appointed to take charge of the task of doing salvation for all the suffering souls, whether is to salvage them out of the suffering Realms or salvage them and bring them to the Eastern Palace for enjoying of eternal joyous.

During Taoist funeral wakes' rituals/ceremonies, Tai Yi Tian Zun will be invited and the Priests that conduct the Ritual/Ceremony must recite scriptures that are dedicated or associated with Tai Yi Tian Zun.

Different mantras are being recited too, in-order to assists the passed-on person to get the necessary blessing from Tai Yi Tian Zun.

In Big Salvation Ritual/Ceremony, the Taoist Priest will have to recite the Official Title of Tai Yi Tian Zun and also to visualize oneself turning into Tai Yi Tian Zun while releasing the Positive Energy or Light Ray to do the salvation of the suffering souls.

Today, such Ritual/Ceremony can still be seen, but due to the engagement of Taoist Priest to conduct Funeral Ritual/Ceremony has dropped and so, not much people will be able to understand or see a Good "transformation" being done.

More Info:

Heavenly Lord Tai Yi aka Lord Tai Yi, the high ranking Taoist Deity that take charge of Salvations for the Sufferings and also the Pity-Souls.

According to Taoist History, Lord Tai Yi was being honoured by the Taoists far before any other Taoist Deities were being known and pay respect. From there, we were able to know that Lord Tai Yi was a highly-respect Deity in the whole Culture and Practice.

Due to the misunderstandings and certain mixture of belief, in Taoist Culture, there are 2 Manifestation Anniversaries for Lord Tai Yi, 1 in the Seventh Month and 1 in the Eleventh Month.
If we will to track back the Records of our Official Taoist Culture, the actual Anniversary shall fall on the 11th Day of Lunar 11 Month.

For Year 2013, it falls on 13 Dec, a Friday.

Okay, back to the main Topic.

In Singapore, it is totally impossible to find a Temple or Altar that honoured Lord Tai Yi and so, for those who are keen and interested in paying your respect to him, you can visit any Chinese Temples, just prepare the necessary offerings as shown below and then place them on the Main Altar of the Temple, you will be able to pay your respect to Lord Tai Yi.

If you wish to pay respect at home, that will be more encourage-able.

And so, what to prepare?

According to our Chinese Custom & Folks Practice, here are some recommended items to be prepared for the paying respect:

1 Five Oranges (桔子)
2 Longevity Noodles (壽麵)
3 Longevity Peaches (壽桃)
4 Ang Ku Kueh (紅龜粿)
5 Huat Kueh (發糕)
6 Rice Wine (米酒)
7 Chinese Tea (茶)
8 Paper Offerings (紙料)
9 Candles (蠟燭)
10 Flowers or Lotus (鮮花或蓮花)

Once all these stuffs are prepared and ready, placed them on the Main Altar in the Temple.
1st, pay respect to the Heaven & the Main Deities in the Temple/House then proceed to the Main Altar where the Offerings are being placed.

Make a Bow in front of the Offerings and then sincerely kneel down and proceed with the following Passage (for those who know how to recite the Bao Gao of Lord Tai Yi):

今逢。

太乙尋聲救苦天尊。(拜)
Tai Yi Xun Sheng Jiu Ku Tian Zun (Bow)

After rising, make another sincere Bow and then left the spot.

After about 15 minutes, retrieve the Paper-offerings and then burn them off.

And so, the whole Paying Respect to Lord Tai Yi is considered end.

癸巳蛇年酬謝當年太歲星君 Thanksgiving Respect to the Lord Tai Sui 2013


A year is about to end and its time for those who requested blessings from Lord Tai Sui, aka Lord of Year & Age, to return their gratitude to him. 

For those who signed up for the Lord Tai Sui blessing Ritual/Ceremony during the Lunar New Year Period, for this end-of-year, a Thanksgiving Ritual/Ceremony will be conducted by the Spiritual Master again, the devotees just needed to go back to the Temple to get registered for the Thanksgiving Ritual/Ceremony, the Spiritual Master will assist in performing the Thanksgiving Respect on behalf of the devotees.

For those who didn't signed up for such Ritual/Ceremony, one self can prepared

a set of 5 oranges (五粒桔子),

1 packet of tea leaves (茶葉一包),

1 packet of Traditional Cookies (餞盒一包) and

1 set of incense-paper (1000 normal Gold-paper 千金一份,

1 pack of Gui Ren-paper 貴人紙一套)

and go back to temple to pay respect to the same Lord Tai Sui.

So when is the best period to return the gratitude?

Best is to do it before Dong Zhi Festival 冬至 (will be before 22/23 Dec), but if one self is not able to perform that before this period, one self can always do it before 16th Day of Lunar 12 Month (尾牙前). Once over 16th Day of Lunar 12 Month, then it will consider as "over-due".

Last of all, always maintain a sincere mind & soul and be faithful while paying respect to Lord Tai Sui. Once one self is sincere and faithful, without any offerings, one self will still get the blessings from Lord Tai Sui.

For those who got-in-conflict with Lord Tai Sui, need not feel bad or sad, cos not necessary for one self who got-in-conflict with Lord Tai Sui will have bad-luck thru-out the year.

As long as you are upright and sincere, you will be blessed.

癸巳蛇年淨明許遜天師聖誕吉慶 Manifestation Anniversary of Heavenly Master Xu Xun 2013


On the 25th Day of Lunar 10 Month (農曆十月廿五日), its the Day that Heavenly Master Xu Xun gained his Immortal-hood, in some contexts known as his Manifestation Anniversary.

In Year 2013, it falls on 27 Nov, a Wednesday.

In Taoism, he is another important Heavenly Master that had bring together the bonding of Taoist Culture and also, performing the Upright Preaching of Taoist Skills and Knowledge.

Due to few Deities having the same Official Title with Xu Xun, many a time, Taoists tend to get mix-up. And so, many misconceptions and wrong ideas had occurred.

More info on Heavenly Master Xu Xun許天師相關資料:

Xu Tian Shi (許天師) aka Heavenly Master Xu, real name known as Xu Xun (許遜), Xu Jing Yang (許旌陽) or Xu Jing Zhi (許敬之), Taoist Name known as Ling Jian Zi (靈劍子), born in Wu Chi Wu Second Year (CE239 吳赤烏二年), 28th Day of Lunar 1 Month (農曆正月二十八日). Hometown in Nan Chang, now known as Jiang Xi Province (家鄉於南昌今為江西).

Since young, Xu Xun was an intelligent boy who was strongly connected with Spiritual Skills & stuffs.

At the age of 20 (弱冠之年), he seek Mastership under Wu Meng Zhen Ren (師承吳猛真人), from then, he started to do researches on Spiritual Skills, the Nature Changes, Prediction Skills, etc.

CE280, after certain obstacles Xu Xun encountered, he decided to stop his cultivation and went for the Imperial Examination. Due to his knowledge and wisdom, he passed the exam and was appointed as the Magistrate Officer of Jing Yang Area (旌陽縣 this was how the folks addressed him as Xu Jing Yang later part in the History), at that time, he was 42 years old.

During his serving of the Nation Service in Jing Yang Area, he was being highly respected by the commoners. And due to his Uprightness and Non-bias-attitude, after he left the Area, the commoners dedicated statues for him as a form of gratitude.

Soon, Jin Dynasty (晉朝) was in a chaotic status. Knowing that Jin Dynasty wouldn’t be able to last forever, Xu Xun resigned from his post and returned to his Master’s premises to regain his self-cultivation again.

After returning to his Master side, his Master brought him along to travel around the whole Country to do necessary salvation for the sufferings. During the travling, Xu Xun subdued a few demons and Deities, such as Tiger Demon, etc.

Besides doing salvations & subduing, Xu Xun was being imparted with a few Manuals with Spiritual Skills known as Tai Shang Ling Bao Jing Ming Fa (太上靈寶淨明法), which later Xu Xun used the title Jing Ming while he set-up his Sect - Jing Ming Sect (淨明道).

CE374, 25th Day of Lunar 10 Month (農曆十月廿五日), Xu Xun got his Enlightenment. At the moment of his Enlightenment, he was being summoned to the Celestial Palace (天庭) to meet up with Jade Emperor (玉皇大天尊). Due to his Uprightness and Faithfulness in continuing the Preaching of Taoism Teaching, he was being bestowed with the title Heavenly Master – Tian Shi (天師之職).

After he got the bestowed title, Xu Xun’s whole family, of about 120 members, were also being summoned to the Celestial Palace to gain a position in the Celestial Court System. In Chinese, there is a saying for Xu Xun’s family – Yi Ren De Dao, Quan Jia Sheng Tian (一人得道, 全家昇天). Meaning one person got Enlightenment, the whole family was also being granted to gain Immortality.
From then, he was being group with the other 3 Heavenly Masters to form the Four Heavenly Masters to assist the Three Realms (三界) in doing preaching for Dao.

In Taoism Culture or Chinese Deity System, Xu Xun was also being addressed as Gan Tian Da Di (感天大帝).

Till today, the Hock Chew (福州), Hock Cheng (福清) and Teochew (潮州) Clans still honoured Xu Xun as their Protector (守護神).
