Departing Ceremony of Mazu and Urn from my home ~ Part 3 FINAL   Leave a comment


Departing Ceremony of Mazu and Urn from my home back to the Kew Leong Tong Lim Clan Temple at Ah Quee Street, Penang ~ Part 3 FINAL

Firstly in the morning is the cleaning and tidying of Mazu’s Place of Worship and presentation of a new yellow robe bought for me by a clansman from Taiwan. I was elected the Lor Choo or Urn Keeper for 2017/2018 and the Mazu Diety was worshipped in my house for one year. This Urn and Diety shall be returned to Kew Leong Tong Lim Kongsi and to be worshipped by the next elected Urn Keeper for the next year of 2018/2019.

After the cleaning and wearing of the new robe, a joss-stick was lit and placed into the urn. Next, was the transportation to the car which was driven by Marilyn slowly to the Kew Leong Tong Lim Clan Temple at Ah Quee Street, George Town, Penang. George Town is a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site. We reached the Temple safely and slowly carried Mazu, our Lim’s Ancestral Diety into the Temple and placed on a special table. The Ceremony is thus completed safely.

The actual birthday of Mazu is on this coming Tuesday, 8 May, 2018 but our Lim Clan of Seang Kooi Tong celebrates on Wednesday, 9 May, 2018 which is also the the Election Day of the Malaysian 14th General Elections.

Mazu, also known by several other names and titles, is a Chinese sea goddess. She is the deified form of the purported historical Lin Mo or Lin Moniang, a Fujianese shamaness whose life span is traditionally dated from 960 to 987. Revered after her death as a tutelary deity of seafarers, including fishermen and sailors, her worship spread throughout China’s coastal regions and overseas Chinese communities throughout Southeast Asia. She was thought to roam the seas, protecting her believers through miraculous interventions. She is now generally regarded by her believers as a powerful and benevolent Queen of Heaven. Mazuism is popular on Taiwan; her temple festival is a major event in the region, with the largest celebrations around her temples at Dajia and Beigang.
