If you’re interested in learning about the Chinese deities, you’ve likely heard of Da Ji. You may have also heard of Hu Sheng and Shen Gongbao. But what are these deities and why are they important? Here are some interesting facts about them.
Investiture of the Gods
The Investiture of the Gods of the Daji is a Chinese drama series that takes its inspiration from the fabled 16th-century novel. This fantasy drama revolves around an evil fox spirit disguised as a beautiful woman. King Zhou becomes enamored with the fox and blames her for his failure to keep the Shang Dynasty alive. According to legend, Daji is a reincarnation of the Nine-Tailed Fox.
The novel is set in the last days of the Shang dynasty. In the story, a group of Chinese citizens are trying to overthrow a corrupt tyrant named Shang King Zhou, or Yin Zhou Wang. But the people are not satisfied, and the plot begins to unravel.
The evil King Zhou is supported by several ministers and chancellors, but he is also surrounded by sycophants. The arrival of the gods of Daji at court is kicked off by two of these sicophants. They told the emperor that Su Hu had a daughter. They later agreed to kill the Queen Consort. After they die, E Lai and Fei Lian take over as his bad advisors.
In China, Daji is the equivalent of Trope Namer in the Trope Namer system. King Zhou neglected his own kingdom for Daji and catered to his increasingly twisted tastes. In Chinese mythology, Daji also has a counterpart in the form of Immortal Lu Ya. He summons an elongated white being and uses its gaze to paralyze its opponent. In addition, he then falls down and cuts off the head of his opponent. This being is called the Fabao or the “Immortal-Beheading Flying Knife”. The Fabao is a white being that absorbs the essence of the sun and moon.
The story of the Investiture of the Gods of the Daji is a tale of a man’s desire for a woman and his desire for it. Ultimately, Daji and Bi Gan fall in love and the two fall in love. But when Daji learns that the only way to cure him is by taking Bi Gan’s heart, he decides to plot revenge against him. When King Zhou learns of this, he puts him under house arrest for seven years in Youli. This is a saga of love and passion, which leads to a brutal execution.
Da Ji is a Chinese deity, and he has been worshiped for over four thousand years. He is the patron of the northern and western half of the country. His role in society is complex. His story is often a little dark, but it is full of fascinating details. In one of his most famous tales, Zhou invited a group of guests to play cat and mouse in the trees. The daughter of Lord Jiu became offended by the act and protested against it. Eventually, Zhou killed her. Da Ji’s daughter protested and was slain along with her father.
In Chinese mythology, Da Ji was originally a demon fox who was summoned by Emperor Zhou as a punishment for tarnishing the image of the Son of Heaven. Later, however, Da Ji revealed his true purpose: to punish humanity and cause pain for eternity. Da Ji was also a consort of King Zhou of Shang. He later became an oppressive Empress in the Zhou Dynasty and played a role in the Great God War.
The story of Da Ji dates back to around 1700 B.C., when the Chinese monarchs were notorious for debauchery. This led to the destruction of many dynasties. In female-biased society, women involved with the monarchs were blamed for this. Therefore, the Chinese people often depict Da Ji as the most savage woman in their history.
Da Ji was originally a fox spirit who took on the characteristics of the Nine-Tailed Fox. This fox spirit is usually mischievous and can disguise itself as beautiful women. This myth originated in China, where the people worshiped the fox spirit and sacrificed animals to it.
The Daji Chinese deity, Shen Gongba, is a mythical creature that appears in a variety of forms. One version depicts him as a middle-aged man with claw-like fingernails and a goatee. Another has him as a leopard with supernatural powers. Some say that he can even turn into a tiger-like beast. The actual backstory of Shen Gongbao is still unknown.
According to the legend, Daji once saw a farmer walking on ice and ordered his feet to be cut off. He was curious about why his feet were so resistant to cold, and also wanted to prove the ancient saying that a good man’s heart has seven apertures.
In the Investiture of the Gods, Shen Gongbao was a disciple of the Jade Pure One. He was a younger brother to Jiang Ziya. Although Jiang Ziya was destined to become lord of Jingxu Hall, Shen Gongbao reveals that even Jiang Ziya was just a cog in the Celestial Bureaucracy.
Hu Sheng is a daji (Chinese god) who is very popular in China. He is a male deity who is able to create many things. For example, he can also create fire, so he can be used to ignite fires. In fact, this is one of the oldest beliefs in Chinese culture. This deity was created by King Zhou, who was very fascinated with him. King Zhou neglected state affairs in order to spend time with Daji. King Zhou even built a zoological Xanadu for Daji, commissioned artists to write lewd music and choreograph bawdy dances for him, and invited three thousand people to his party. He had them dance nude, and even allowed them to play cat and mouse in the forest. Those who protested
Hu Sheng is also called Shengong Bao. He is a Chinese deity who is associated with longevity. Among other deities, he is associated with meditation and wisdom. He was once the dragon prince, but after his misdeeds, he was punished with a task and transformed into a white stallion.
Hu Sheng is associated with wisdom and calmness. His early life as a king was full of success and fame, but as he got older, he began to lose control of his kingdom. Ancient Chinese writers blamed this on his wife, Daji, who was the most beautiful woman in China. This led him to become obsessed with impressing her.
Hu Sheng is also connected to the moon. In Chinese folklore, she is often portrayed as the goddess of healing and medicine. In fact, he is so revered that an entire district in Hong Kong is named after him. Her most famous myth is about fixing a broken pillar of heaven. She is also associated with the Investiture of the Gods as the goddess who laid the foundation for the Shang-Zhou conflict.
In China, the daji (daoist) god of war, Jiang Ziya, has numerous mythical and historical figures. Throughout history, he embodied the great prime ministers and emperors who helped end wars and dynasties. He was also revered by many Chinese emperors and is considered to be the patron saint of the military and literature. As a result, a great number of memorial temples were built to honor Jiang Ziya.
In Chinese mythology, Jiang Ziya is a deity who ascended to Godhood by defeating the Nine Tailed Fox. He is said to have become God at Jingxu Hall, but he could not execute Jiu because the innocent spirit of Jiu was inside the fox. Because of this hesitation, the Nine Tailed Fox was able to escape Jiang Ziya’s grasp and escape him.
Jiang Ziya is a sharply-drawn figure with a perpetually forlorn expression. He is accompanied by a cute sidekick, the Four-Alike, who can transform into a majestic deer. Jiang Ziya is endearing, and his silhouette makes him appealing. In contrast, his daji counterpart, Su Daji, is a sinister opera mask that unleashes fury from multiple blood-red tails.
Jiang Ziya was a head disciple of the Kunlun sect. In the Shang Dynasty, he led the divine army against King Zhou and won the deification battle. Among the gods, he is considered the patron of the emperor and a supreme deity.
King Wen of Zhou and his mother Yi had met Jiang Ziya and obtained his teachings. King Wen appointed Jiang Ziya as prime minister and gave him the title of Jiang Taigong Wang. King Wu also took an interest in Jiang Ziya and his daughter Yi Jiang. King Wu later married Jiang Ziya’s daughter Yi Jiang. The result was King Wu, the son of King Wen.
