Spring 2022 – Business God of Wealth – Guan Gong
Out of the Five Wealth Gods that are thought to be the most formidable manifestations of auspicious luck and wealth within Chinese culture, Guan Gong is widely known and worshipped as the Business God of Wealth.
Where the Grand Wealth God Bi Gan is central to the heightened emphasis on prosperity, good fortune and abundance during the Lunar New Year, the remaining two direct wealth gods — Guan Gong and Tua Pek Gong — play no small part during this highly auspicious period.
During the late Eastern Han dynasty, Guan Gong served as a high-ranking military general under the warlord, Liu Bei (刘备). As a military leader, he held an undying commitment to restoring the glory of the Han dynasty, working to repel hostile forces that threatened to jeopardise it. His strategic acumen, strong morality, alongside his bravery and loyalty established a solid reputation for Guan Gong as one of the most formidable figures of his time.
Today, Guan Gong’s legendary tenacity, foresight and courage are widely revered as desirable attributes and characteristics, especially amongst entrepreneurs and is recognised in his deification as the Business Wealth God.
Much like Bi Gan, Guan Gong’s guidance and blessings are often celebrated and sought out during the Lunar New Year. The 13th day of the Lunar New Year is often attributed to Guan Gong, with many businesses and organisations praying for his blessings to ensure their continued prosperity for the year ahead.
Both wealth gods oversee the direct wealth aspirations of their devotees, however, an important distinction to make is that Guan Gong’s influence leans towards the business fortunes. In his role as the Business Wealth God, Guan Gong’s guidance and influence are actively sought out by countless entrepreneurs in pursuit of their dreams.
The Lunar New Year presents a highly favourable opportunity to kick off the year of the Water Tiger with optimal guidance and direction from this formidable direct wealth god. Empowering devotees with the qualities necessary to excel at business, our blessed clients are poised to usher in another year of prosperity and abundance.
