What is the Hai Tze Tao?
The Hai Tze Tao Religion is an independent religion of the modern age. It existed before the Heaven and Earth did, and still exists even after the Heaven and Earth are destroyed. It is an orthodox being believed in the three realms ― Heaven, World, and Underworld. The main God of worshipping of the Religion is the great His Majesty Heavenly Father ― Hsuan-tien-shang-zu. He is the Creator of the universe, and the Heavenly Father of all Immortals, Buddhas, Deities, saints, mankind and spirits.
The Heavenly Father, His Majesty Hsuan-tien-shang-zu
The main God of worshipping of the Hai Tze Tao Religion is His Majesty Heavenly Father― Hsuan-tien-shang-zu. He is the Emperor of the Heaven, and lives in the Sheng-ji Heaven above the Wu-ji Heaven. The Heavenly Father is the primordial ancestor of all beings. Currently the life cycle of the earth, namely the Tai-ji World, has passed the Green Yang and Red Yang Periods, and is in the White Yang Period. This Period is called the Period of Decay and Termination or the Final Catastrophe by different religions. In the White Yang Period, mankind will suffer from Karmic retributions for countless debts gathered from numberless sins and killings. The deities of the Tai-ji World will also be affected violently.In order to help Souls in the three realms return to the Origin in the Sheng-ji Heaven to join the Long-hua Assemblies, the merciful His Majesty Heavenly Father ― Hsuan-tien-shang-zu descended the Hai Tze Tao to the earth. He came down from the Heaven Himself, and established His abode on the earth ― the Supreme Holy Temple Hsuan-ji Palace. He has been decreeing His eldest son ― the Hon. Supreme Holy Emperor and other Immortals, who have received the Command of the Shou Yuan Salvation, to conduct the Holy Registration for the Tien Zhen Shou Yuan Salvation. The “Nine Six” Holy Souls will then cultivate the Tao, elevate to the Wu-ji Heaven, and finally reach the Sheng-ji Heaven.
The Establishment of the Hai Tze Tao Religion
With the transition from the Red Yang Period to the White Yang Period, the Heavenly Father, His Majesty Hsuan-tien-shang-zu, descended the new Heavenly Tao ― Hai Tze Tao to the earth to save the world. The Hai Tze Tao roots in the Tao and cultivates the beings. It was organized in Taipei, Taiwan in 1984. The establishment of the Religion was predicted hundreds of years ago. As foretold by ancient prophetic words, the religion would come down to the world in the year when (1) the dual Springs and the dual Rain Waters (both being the Solar terms in the Chinese Lunar Calendar) both happen in the same year; (2) the New Year’s Day of the Solar Calendar and that of the Lunar Calendar both are in the same month; and (3) two Octobers (one being an intercalary month in the lunar calendar) are in the same year. In this auspicious year, the Heavenly Father also blesses mankind and the whole universe with happiness and joyfulness.
The Founders of the Hai Tze Tao Religion
There are three founders of the Hai Tze Tao Religion: One chief founder and two co-founders.
1. The Chief Founder ― Hon. Supreme Holy Emperor
The chief founder is the heavenly-ordained Soul Saving Father. His monastic name is Hsuan Ho, and holy name is the Hon. Supreme Holy Emperor. He is also called the Tien Zhen General Master.
2. The Hon. Sun Moon Ming Shi's
The Hon. Sun Moon Ming Shi’s (the Tien Zhen Father Master ― Hsuan-zhi-ming-shi and the Tien Zhen Mother Master ― Hsuan-hui-ming-shi) are co-founders of the Religion. They are also called the Creators of the Religion and Saviors of Souls. In 1984 when the Hai Tze Tao Religion was founded, these two Masters were still young, so they were raised and supported by the Hon. Supreme Holy Emperor. Under God’s decree, the Sun Moon Ming Shi’s are the last saviors, the 64th generation, of the Golden String of the Tao.
The Goal of the Hai Tze Tao Religion
The Hai Tze Tao not only indicates clearly where human beings came from (i.e., who our primal ancestors were), but also civilizes people by education. It is the new Tien Tao being disseminated among the Chinese people with the mission of innovating Chinese culture, and promotes disciplines of life and nature simultaneously.
The legitimacy of the Hai Tze Tao Religion
The establishment of the General Headquarters of the Tien Zhen Hai Tze Tao in ROC was approved by the Ministry of the Interior on July 15, 1990 (license no. Tai-Nei-She-Tze #812930). Thenceforth, the Hai Tze Tao Religion is on equal terms with all the other religions to save people, countries and the mundane world. This eternally great business of the Tao should be maintained wholeheartedly by the loyal followers.
