Nine Emperor Gods festival


Seth Akmal

THE Nine Emperor Gods festival is celebrated for nine days by Taoist devotees, beginning on the eve of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar.

Devotees traditionally dress in white and carry candles during a procession from temples to rivers or seashores as a symbolic gesture of inviting gods to the temples through waterways.

Hundreds of devotees, including priests, chariots, and cultural groups, were part of this year’s procession, after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

During the festival, devotees adhere to a vegetarian diet, maintain celibacy, and avoid alcohol consumption to preserve their purity.

The festival marks devotees’ dedication to the nine sons of Tou Mu, the goddess of the North Star, who is believed to control the afterlife. Her sons, deified as ren huang (human sovereigns), are said to have the ability to cure illnesses and bless devotees with wealth and prosperity. – October 5, 2022.

  • I tried getting a car loan sometime last year but my credit score of about 521 ruined the process. Since I was in desperate need of a car due to the nature of my new job, I resorted to making online research on how I could restore my credit to a minimum of 650 to enable me to qualify, after a few months of searching, I bumped into a blog and found positive reviews about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST, So I reached out to them to explain my credit situation, they requested my info and necessary details and were able to get every derogatory item on my report erased and increased my FICO score to 788 within 6 days, I was amazed. They are fast and reliable. Anyone looking for a credit solution below is their contact details:
