Dong Yue Da Di, the Great Emperor of the Eastern Peak, is the god to whom all the Hell deities must answer, their supreme authority.

He is not a Hell deity, strictly speaking, but is a Heavenly god with Hell involvement, due to the fact that he is involved with matters concerning lifespans and fate, birth and death.

Legend states that he is a descendant of Pan Gu, the primeval deity who helped to create Heaven and Earth.

Mount Tai is where Dong Yue Da Di is said to reside.

His statue broadly resembles that of the Jade Emperor, except it has gold skin and is placed in the Hell section along with all his Hellish minions.

Here is a picture of Dong Yue Da Di (sitting right there at the top) with his retinue.

Nacht, probably a bit of an ask (perhaps irresponsibly, and to no ends, and I apologise if so), but could/would you be able to share who the deities in the picture are please?

No, that's no trouble at all.

I love to answer questions.

Top row, left to right:
  • Justice Bao,
  • A Hell Judge
  • Dong Yue Da Di
  • The City God
  • Another Hell Judge

The two Hell Judges are probably those presiding over the Courts of Hell that the sintua's Tua Li Ya Pek come from. The City God would be the local spiritual magistrate who presides over the area where the sintua is located, and the sintua's Tua Li Ya Pek would have been outsourced by the Hell Judges to work for him.

Middle row, left to right:
  • Wu Pan Guan the Military Judge, one of the City God's deputies
  • Nai He Tong Zi the guardian of the Bridge of Sorrows
  • Gui Shen, who escorts the souls of the dead to visit their relatives if they are permitted such privileges
  • Da Shi Ye the military operations commander of Hell and leader of all the undead/ghostly soldiers
  • The Master of Yin-Yang, minor Hell Judge and the City God's right hand man
  • Zhong Kui the chief exorcist of Hell
  • Wen Pan Guan the Civil Judge, another of the City God's deputies)

Front row is occupied solely by the Ba Jia Jiang, eight spirit generals who serve as a vanguard for higher ranking deities.

Hey thanks much for the effort! Must have been either on mobile or typing as you were looking at the screen*.

Not that I've seen a lot, but I've never seen The Master Yin Yang. What does he govern?

Also, is Zhong Kui also a minor hell judge, or did I get the order wrong?

Is gui shen pronounced as gui (4) or gui (3)?

As mentioned, the Master of Yin-Yang is a minor Hell Judge and the principal assistant to the City God. He judges the living by day and the dead by night.

Zhong Kui is a warrior/demon slayer and not a judge or bureaucrat. I would put him at colonel rank if you want to draw army comparisons.

Gui Shen is written as '贵神'. 'The honourable deity'. A term of respect, probably used by humans and his charges to curry favour for visiting privileges.

Ah many thanks! Heh read the paragraph erroneously, then. I'd thought the judge was referring to Zhong Kui and was confused. Mucho gracias!

Guan Yin, Shan Cai and other deities who adopt a compassionate approach to things are your best bet.

I would not approach a warrior deity or a Hell being for such matters.

niche but not niche
I wouldn't really call this niche.

It's probably the most widely practised religion in SG.

That is extremely contradictory, yes.

I would seriously question those monks' credentials.
There are burning of stuff in Buddhism. It's not dubious.

The burning of stuff in Buddhism symbolizes that the worldly things are no longer the dead's concern and all living things however rich or powerful u are, u cannot bring it over to the other side.

No one or soul at the other side will receive it.....

How the family perceive it is another thing though.

I've personally witnessed deities advising people to call off clearly abusive or toxic relationships.
