Introduction on Priestess Zhang Qi Ying (張天師之曾孫張琪瑛胤師)












In Taoism, Zhang Yu Lan (張玉蘭胤師) was the First Lady Priestess that was being known as Spiritual Maiden - Mother of Taoist Scriptures (道經之仙姆) and she was the Aunty of Priestess Zhang Qi Ying (張琪瑛之姑母).

Introduction on Zhang Yu Lan (張玉蘭胤師簡介):

http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2007/12/priestess-zhang-yu-lan.html

Zhang Qi Ying (張琪瑛), the Great-granddaughter of Heavenly Master Zhang Dao Ling (張道陵天師), Granddaughter of the 2nd Generation Heavenly Master Zhang Heng (嗣師張衡天師之孫女) & 3rd Generation Heavenly Master Zhang Lu's daughter (系師張魯天師之女).

She was born in Late Han Dynasty, on 12th Day of Lunar 7 Month AD196 (建生於漢建安元年七月十二日) and her Attaining Immortality Anniversary was on 20th Day of Lunar 3 Month AD 217 (飛昇於漢建安二十二年三月二十日).

Since young, Zhang Qi Ying was deeply influenced by her Aunty Zhang Yu Lan and so, she tried her best to memorize all Scriptures, Incantations and Spiritual Records, that being passed down by her Ancestors and other Spiritual Sages.

At the age of 16, she was being arranged a marriage by her Father Zhang Lu to General Ma Chao (其父張魯將之配婚與馬超大將).

Soon after the marriage, Ma Chao was killed in a Battle and pitying Qi Ying that she was still young, Zhang Lu arranged for another marriage for her with Cao Yu (曹宇), the Son of Cao Cao (曹操與環夫人之子), but due to Qi Ying hated Cao Cao for his rebellious, she refused to marry to the Son and so, she left her family and wandered around to spread the teaching of Zheng Yi Sect.

One day, while she pass-by Han Zhong City Mian County (漢中市勉縣), she found that this piece of land was special and so, she decided to stay in this area for long and hopefully she can promote Taoism to more people in here.

After years of non-stop promoting of Taoism, one night, Qi Ying saw her Aunty Zhang Yu Lan appeared in here dream, advising her that, her time is up for Returning to the Celestial Realm (其姑母張玉蘭出現於夢中﹐提醒琪瑛該歸為之時已到).

Upon hearing that, Zhang Qi Ying was delighted and she followed her Aunty – walking on a Path which was formed by colourful clouds and soon, she disappeared into the air (隨著姑母張玉蘭踏上七彩祥雲﹐徐徐飛昇入闕).

On that day, it was 20th Day of Lunar 3 Month (此時正是漢建安二十二年三月二十日) and she was only 22 Years old (享年二十二歲).

Due to her Sincerity, Compassionate and Determination, she was very well respected by the villagers and after she attained her Immortality, the villager built a nice Tomb and a Temple dedicated to her (因受勉縣人民愛戴﹐因此在琪瑛得道之後﹐該人民為其修墳立祠).

Today, in China Xia Xi Province, Han Zhong City Mian County Wen Quan Town Guang Ming Village (陜西省漢中市勉縣東南溫泉鎮光明村), Zhang Qi Ying's tomb can still be seen and a Temple known as Nv Lang Temple (女郎祠/女郎廟) was just beside her tomb.

 In here, you all will see the Requesting of Rain Talisman mend for "Putting Out of Fire".

Manifestation Anniversary of Guan Ping 2013 (癸巳蛇年關平生辰吉慶及關公磨刀日)



Duke Guan Yu aka Guan Gong in Folks Context, a Real Historical Character during the Three Kingdom Period. Till today, a lot of Non-Taoist Religions are fighting for the “owners...hip” of Guan Gong, which make it ridiculous and complicated. Even though this is so, Guan Gong will still provide the necessary Blessing for All Taoists.

Due to a lot of mis-concept and mis-interpretation, a lot of Folks Culture and other Non-Taoist Religions tend to celebrate Guan Gong’s Birthday on the 13th Day of Lunar 5 Month, which is not accurate or Unrealistic.

According to History Records from various Contexts, Guan Gong’s Birthday was being recorded as 24th Day of Lunar 6 Month. Whereas, 13th Day of Lunar 5 Month shall be the Anniversary where Duke Guan Yu Sharpen his Sabre for the defeating of his Enemies and in Chinese Tradition, on this Day, while honouring of Duke Guan Yu, Wealth Blessing will be bestowed for those who are in Trading-line or Doing Businesses.

Besides that, 13th Day of Lunar 5 Month shall be the Birthday of Guan Ping, which is known as the Son of Duke Guan Yu.

For Year 2013, 13th Day of Lunar 5 Month falls on 20 June, a Thursday.

Taoist Poem for Duan Yang Festival (端陽天師除邪詩)


Dear All,

In here is a Taoist Poem dedicated to Heavenly Master Zhang Dao Ling (正一張祖道陵天師), for Duan Yang aka Duan Wu Festival (端陽/端午節).

Due to many people only promote the first 4 phrases of this poem and neglected the last 4 phrases, in here, Jave will share the full Poem to all on this Special Day (通常﹐多數人只分享此詩之前四句而忽略了後四句。與此﹐小道將完整的<慶端陽>詩﹐與各方同道分享).


Duan Wu Positive Water Fetching (端陽午時水)


端陽午時水

又是一年一度提取端陽午時水的時候了。
諸位同道請記得哦﹐一定要在午時三刻(11:45AM)取水﹐此刻就是該日陽氣最重之時。
取午時水最好是” 無根”之水﹐即”流動之活水”﹐可向井中取得。
於井中所取得的端陽午時水稱之為”地龍水”。
如若在端陽當天午時下雨﹐那就更好了。
那就是真正的”無根”之水﹐又稱之為”天龍水”。
兩水取得之後﹐可入藥作為懸葫濟世之用。
如若習法之人﹐便可用此二水入墨書符或提煉”清淨之水”﹐無不有效。

Wu Shi Shui, translated as The Yang Energy Water of Duan Yang Day (Duan Wu Day).

This Water must be collected at 11:45Am (during Day time – applies to the Western Countries), where the Yang aka Positive Energy is the strongest. Besides that, this Water must be collected from a “Living” source, meaning the Water must be Flowing or Non-stop-providing; such sources can be from Water-well or Streams.

From Water-well or Streams, the Water collected is known as “Earth Dragon Water” and if, on Duan Yang Day, it rains, the Water collected will be the Best. This Water will be known as “Heavenly Dragon Water”.

Upon collecting all these Water, it can be used to brew herbs for Curing Diseases and for those who are practising Spiritual Skills, it can be used to mix-with-ink for Talismans’ writing or for the making of “Purely Cleansing Water”.

Long Shan Men celebrating Duan Wu Festival 2013 (正一龍山門慶端陽)


慶端陽。敬香上。
蒸粽子。雄黃香。
天正午。取龍水。
入菖蒲。淨宅屋。
除五毒。滅穢污。
身體健。納百福。

Wishing everyone here a Great Duan Wu Day, may All be blessed with Good Health & Prosperity.

From today onwards, do remember to take care of one’s physical health, as Summer is going to reach it’s “Peak Period” and many people might be affected by the “Heat” & “Poison aka Virus”.

In Singapore, there is a Temple that dedicated to Lord Shen Nong that one must really visit.

This Temple is known as Jie Gu Dian (介穀殿), now located in Zhen Long Gong (真龍宮/真人宮) at Redhill Close.




According to record, Jie Gu Dian was set-up in the early 20s by the Hokkien Immigrants from Tong An (由一群從中國同安過番的先賢們所創立). During that period, the Temple was located at Bukit Ho Swee (河水山), Si Jiao Ting Area (四腳亭處).

After the Temple had set-up, in 1930s, the members of the Temple had also set-up a school in the area to provide education to the kids staying in the area.

May 1965, a fire broke-off at Bukit Ho Swee, most of the houses & buildings were destroyed and so, Jie Gu Dian had to shift to Mi Fen Pu (米粉埔) – where Bukit Merah Central is now.

In 1970s, due to the land where Jie Gu Dian was sitting-on was being acquisited by the Government, it had to shift into a combined temple with the other 3 Temples – which now the combined Temple is known as Zhen Long Gong (真龍宮).

Brief History Background of Jie Gu Dian (中國福建介穀殿簡介):

The origin Jie Gu Dian was built in Song Dynasty Qian Heng 3rd Year AD981 (介穀殿始建於宋朝乾亨三年即公元九八一年), in Hokkien Province Xiamen City Xiang An Area Xin Yu Village (座落於中國福建省厦门市翔安區新圩村), dedicating to Lord Shen Nong.

In Ming Dynasty Long Qing 3rd Year AD 1569 (明朝隆慶三年即公元一五六九年), due to serious flooding, the Temple was being destroyed, but the statue of Lord Shen Nong was not damaged.

In Ming Dynasty Wan Li 9th Year AD 1581 (明朝萬歷九年即公元一五八一年), with the assistance of the villagers, Jie Gu Dian was being rebuilt again and the undamaged statue of Lord Shen Nong was being invited back to “sit” in the Temple again on the same spot where the old temple was destroyed.

Year 1999, a major reconstruction was carried-on in-order to preserve the Historical Building and upon completion, Jie Gu Dian was being renamed to Yan Di Dian (炎帝殿) – to significant a “Major Promotion” to the Temple.

Since then, this Temple was being marked as the Ancestral Temple of Lord Shen Nong for ALL Shen Nong Temples in South East Asia (炎帝殿被視為東南亞各別神農廟之祖廟).
