Chishan Mingshenwei Town, with unlimited magic power, guards the countryside, blesses thousands of people, and has immeasurable merits, is the God of northern China's blessings. The first emperor and six countries visited the mountains in the 28th year of his reign (the first 219 years) in order to seek the remedy of immortality. When he was seriously ill, Li quickly prayed for God and was safe. Tang Wenzong was born three years ago (838). Yuanren (Master Cijue), the principal of Tiantaizong III in Dongying, accompanied Tang envoys to Tang Dynasty for several years and visited Chishan three times. On the way back, he suffered many calamities in the sea. Fortunately, the gods appeared and he saved hundreds of volumes of classics. Yuanren returned home and offered sacrifices to Chishan God as the God of Tiantai Sect. Afterwards, Tongmen Anhui, adhering to his will, built a monastery in Kyoto, which is called Chishan Zen Temple. Later, Chishan gods were gradually worshipped by Dongying and other countries, as well as Persia, Dashi and other regions. Up to now, Japanese and Korean monasteries still offer sacrifices to the Chishan gods to bless the world and to save lives.
