Who are these Chinese gods?

Postby Zla'od » 06 May 2012, 21:04

An old book refers to "Chosu-gang, the soldier" and "Daido-gang the doctor" along with "Gwan-gang, the loyal businessman." Guangong I know, but who are the other two?

Here is how I introduced [Buddhism to] my grandmother when she saw a chenrezig pendant hanging in my car:

Grandmother: Is that Buddha? Are you some kine of Buddhist? (in a sarcastic aggressive tone)
Me: No, it's a Chinese Jesus. (anything with Asian flair to her was chinese)
Grandmother: (tone now changed to happy and excited) Really? I did'nt know chinese had jesus?
