Why Taoist Mission?
Taoism is the only indigenous religion of China and it embodies forms of Chinese beliefs and traditions practiced from the early days of Chinese civilization. Despite its existences of 4700plus years, many people do not know Taoism, mistaking it as a Religion for ‘tang kee’ medium and priests, branding it as superstitious.
Our ancestors had traveled from the south, and brought along the Taoism belief with them, eventually building up temples to worship the several Gods and Deities. Over the years, then number of Taoist temples has increased rapidly and gradually Taoism became the main religion in Singapore, but sadly, the growth and progress of Taoism were slow and hence many of us do not understand the tenets and philosophy of Taoism today.
According to the 1990 population census, 22.4 percent of Singaporean are Taoists, meaning a drop of more than 10 percent from 1980. The results of the census have left many Taoist dismay and upset, but it also driven many others up, to promote and educate Taoism, but it is just not enough.
In the early 1990s, Singapore saw a new “way” in Taoism. During a Taoist Rites held many years ago, the organizer actually disallow fellow Taoist to put on the traditional Taoist chanting robes for a Taoism ritual, and this has upset several more. This incident have angered many, and lead some young devotees to gather and united, hence formed Taoist Mission (Singapore) on 16th February 1996.
Upon the formation of TM (Taoist Mission), an altar (Hall of San Qing) for the Three Pristine Ones and other deities was setup.
From 1st December 2003 onward, TM’s Hall of San Qing is open to the public daily from 10am to 10pm and on every 1st and 15th of the Lunar month as well as festive days, our ritual group will be holding rites and rituals for devotees. We welcome all to accors respect in Taoist Mission.
. From 2012 Lunar New Year onwards, Ang Mo Kio premise opens only on every 1st and 15th day of each lunar month. We welcome you to Singapore ‘Yu Huang Gong for prayers and seeking of divinity blessings.
