|This is the hall of the Trinity Of Purity.(San Qing)
The three Gods are the incarnation or simply the transformation of the natural divine force(qi) called the Tao.-The main belief in Taoism. They appeared in a god-like form because of the karmic relation living beings created. For thousands of years, living being create bad karma, sins and through ignorance, greed and anger. Thus the bad karma had created a relation with the Tao and cause the Tao to appear in God- like form to preach and save all beings. Be it the deities, ausras, humans, animals, ghosts, or hell-beings.
The three of them are -Celestial Lord Of Creations (Yuan Shi Tian Zun), Celestial Lord Of Spiritual Treasure (Ling Bao Tian Zun) and Celestial Lord Of Virtue/ Supreme Patriarch Of Taoism Lord Lao Zi (Tai Shang Lao Jun). They dwell on the highest three level of the heaven, which consist of 36 level. Other deities lived in the lowest 28 level of the heaven. The remaining 5 levels are for deites, or any other beings mentioned earlier, that have attain the holy Tao and no longer be control by the birth cycle( reincarnations), because the 28 levels of the heaven are still under the birth cycle. That is why the Trinity and Buddha in Buddhism preach not only to humans, but also other beings like deities, hell beings, ghost ,ausra(semi-devil gods) and even animals.
|Celestial Lord Of Spiritual Treasure. He represent the holy teachings in the Trinity while the Celestial Lord of Creations represent the Tao and Celestial Lord Of Virtue represent Lao Zi. The Patiarch that is the incarnation of Tao. Celestial Lord Of Virtue and Lao Zi is the same person and thus Lao Zi, the historical figure that lived during ancient China is the incarnation of Tao and one of the Trinity.|
|Celestial Lord Of Creations. He exist EVERYWHERE and EVERYTIME. It is also the same for the other two Lords in the Trinity.|
|Celestial Lord Of Virtue/ Supreme Patriarch Of Virtue Lord Lao Zi. Lao Zi was a man that lived in the Zhou dynasty in ancient China over 2500 years ago. Came out with a great thinking and founded Taoism. He left the famous 'Dao De Jing/ Tao Te Ching. Or simply called the Book Of Tao And Virtue. The holy scripture in Taoism.
