Sample text

In later years the people established ritual associations [literally “societies” (shehui)]21 to offer incense and money [to the palace] out of gratitude (xian xiangxi yi zhi bao) every year on the date of Lü Dongbin’s birthday. A drought occurred in the year 1253, prompting the official Xu Delu [see Chapter 3] to lead the local elders (qilao) in imploring the master [to hold a Taoist ritual]. The master chanted a Numinous Treasure scripture (Lingbao jing),22 and within a few days over a foot of sweet moisture (ganlu) had fallen.

Lü’s shrine flourished during the Song dynasty and by the Jin dynasty was converted into a Taoist 34 I M A G E S O F T H E I M M O RTA L belvedere (Su 1962:81). However, it is not known exactly when this occurred, and it is not clear whether a new belvedere was constructed, whether Lü’s shrine was rebuilt as a belvedere, or whether the shrine was simply renamed a belvedere. 15 This belvedere suffered greatly during the incessant warfare that raged in the area at the end of the Jin dynasty, so that by the time Perfect Realization Taoists visited the site during the 1240s it had fallen into disrepair.

Interestingly enough, however, no source mentions the presence in the temple of an ordination platform (jietai), although one should have been used in such rituals (Goossaert 1997:132–133; Yoshioka 1979:235–236). Furthermore, no ordination platform is indicated in the Qing dynasty diagram of the temple complex (see Figure 2), although it may have been located in one of the two Taoist abbeys described above. It is possible that such a platform had been constructed in the palace as early as the Yuan dynasty and that it later fell into disuse.
