Tempel der Lady Linshui

臨水夫人廟, Tainan

ein wenig graut mir
vor dieser Göttin für Milch
und Kindergeschrei

 


„Lady Linshui is a deity born from the legend of a woman named Chen Jinggu. This was a woman of the early AD700’s who was said to be the daughter (or avatar) of the goddess Guanyin. Chen Jinggu was a prodigy child who could speak shortly after birth and write shortly after learning to walk. She had a very storied life, but to make a long story short, she was a rain shaman who battled snake demons and then became a master of childbearing practices after her death.  Legends abound about her life and she is well represented in popular film and fiction.“ (Quelle: https://tainancity.wordpress.com/2010/11/06/lady-linshui-temple/)
