Mediums In Action
Protecting the sacred space of the festival is the priority of the rituals held on Days 3, 6 and 9. These rituals are designed to honour the 5 Taoist Generals and the spiritual armies of soldiers that arrive at the temple and take up residency (metaphorically) at the five compass points of the temple grounds. The mediums are tasked with channeling the energy of the Deities and undertaking feats of impressive strength and poise. These skilled tang-ki “take one for the team”, impressing devotees and visitors alike!
