Many friends want to know what is the relationship between Lao Tzu and the supreme old gentleman? Is it the same person? In fact, Taoism believes that Lao Tzu, the Taoist philosopher, is the incarnation of Lao Tzu, who has helped countless people. Because he handed down the Taoist classic Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu is called the moral God. The following is a brief introduction to the relevant contents in China story network.
According to the records of the historian, Lao Tzu once kept the history of Tibet for the Chinese Zhou Dynasty. Seeing that Zhou de was declining, he retired from the West and disappeared. During the Qin and Han Dynasties, Huang Lao moralists praised Lao Tzu, the Yellow Emperor, as the first king sage, similar to Yao, Shun, Zhou and Confucius of Confucianism. There were different rumors about Lao Tzu in the early Han Dynasty, and Sima Qian’s “historical records” could not be clearly pointed out. Since then, due to the exaggeration of Huang Lao Dao, Lao Tzu has become increasingly deified. In the Eastern Han Dynasty, both King Ying of Chu and Emperor Huan worshipped Lao Tzu as if they were religious.
Bian Shao wrote Lao Tzu’s Ming, which said: “the good Tao of the world grows by analogy. It begins with Lao Tzu’s separation from chaos and the three lights.” Because of this kind of social rumors as the background, the five doumi Taoist Scripture Lao Tzu Xiang’er Zhu says that “one scattered form is Qi, and the other gathered form is the supreme old gentleman”. In the southern and Northern Dynasties, Taoism in the South worshiped Sanqing Tianzun, the leader of the three cave sect, while Taoism in the North worshipped Lao Tzu, the God of Lao Tzu. Among the seven scriptures preached by Taoism in the Southern Dynasty, the dongshenbu scriptures mentioned by Tao Te Tianzun were the three emperors’ scriptures, and the Tao Te Ching mentioned by Lao Tzu was the taixuan radical scriptures.
Emperor Taizong of the Tang Dynasty banned the three emperors’ Sutra and replaced it with the Tao Te Ching. Emperor Gaozong and Emperor Xuanzong consecutively honored Lao Tzu and promoted him as the distant ancestor of the ancestral clan. They also built a Taiqing palace to honor Lao Tzu. The ceremonial rules were the same as those of the imperial court. In fact, it was the ancestral temple of the ancestral clan. Therefore, the supreme Laojun was finally determined as the leader of the cave God sect in Taiqing, that is, the moral heaven. After the Eastern Han Dynasty, there were many stories about Lao Tzu’s incarnation. In the song and Yuan Dynasties, Taoists compiled the eighty-one transformation of the supreme Lao Tzu.
The Supreme Lord has been the teacher of kings for many times. Before the Shang Dynasty, the old gentleman was separated and descended. He became a teacher with the world, but things were hidden. Therefore, there was no sign of birth in the world. In the seventeen years of Wang Yangjia’s practice of the 18th Shang Dynasty, Lao Jun was deified from Taiqing and pregnant with Xuanmiao jade girl. After eighty-one years, he was born on February 15, the ninth year of Wuding. This is the earliest biography of the birth of Lao Jun. Ji legend: when King Wu of Zhou Dynasty, Lao Jun was still a history under the pillar. No. Jing Chengzi was given the title of Duke of Zhou. He traveled to the West pole, Taiqin, Zhu Qian and other countries, and was named Mr. Gu.
During the reign of Emperor Wen of the former Han Dynasty, the old gentleman landed on the Bank of the Shaanxi River and was called the Duke of the river, also known as the father-in-law of the river. In the second year of Heping, Emperor Cheng of the Han Dynasty, Lao Jun came to Quyang, Langya, and was awarded the Taiping Sutra by Yu Ji. In the second year of Yuanhe, the Ming emperor of the later Han Dynasty, Lao Jun declined and granted immortal Ji 180 precepts. In the first year of Han’an, Emperor Shun of the Han Dynasty, the old gentleman descended to Heming mountain in Shushan and granted the Heavenly Master Zhang Daoling the secret record of Zhengyi League prosperity. In the first year of Jiankang, the Heavenly Master was given the three cave scriptures and the method of transcending the nine ancestral zhaizhi. In the second year of Shenrui, the Ming emperor of the Northern Wei Dynasty, Lao Jun descended to Songshan Mountain and gave Taoist kouqian the “ring of new subjects recited by yunzhongyin”.
In the first year of Taiping reign of emperor Taiwu, the old gentleman descended to Songshan Mountain and ordered Kou Qian to confer the title of emperor Taiping Zhenjun. In the second year of Wude of emperor Gaozu of the Tang Dynasty, the old gentleman descended to Yangjiao mountain. He said that he was lucky and good at doing things, so that he heard the saying: “my emperor’s ancestor also.”. In the second year of long Shuo, Emperor Gaozong of the Tang Dynasty, the old gentleman of the imperial temple. In the first year of Qianfeng, he was honored as emperor Xuanyuan. The seventh year of Dazhong Xiangfu of emperor Zhenzong of Song Dynasty ended in Song Dynasty. Taoists believe that the Supreme Lord Lao Jun is the Supreme God, and that he often comes into the world separately. This is an unshakable belief. Otherwise, you will not be a Taoist disciple or a disciple of Lao Tzu. Disclaimer: the above content originates from the Internet, and the copyright belongs to the original author.
