What is God Of War?
The God Of War, also known as Guan Yu (Guan Kong or “Guan Yu ” or 关羽) died in 220AD. His courtesy name Yunchang, he was a general serving under the warlord Liu Bei （刘备）in the late Eastern Han dynasty.
He played a significant role in the events that led to the collapse of the dynasty and the establishment of the state Shu Han founded by Liu Bei in the Three Kingdom period.
Guan Yu was a chinese military general whose martial prowess was so great that, after his death, he was deified as a god. In modern times, he is revered for his bravery and loyalty. He has also become popular figure in historical fiction, movies and video games in our modern days.
The God of War represents loyalty, integrity and bravery. Some statues depict his martial side, with a saber while other statues depict his literary side, with him sitting and reading. These are the 2 typical statues to choose from for the Chinese God of War.
Why do Taoists worship Guan Yu but not Liu Bei, Zhang Fei, or Zhu Ge Liang from the three kingdoms? First of all, it’s not just Taoism but also Confucianism and Buddhism.
The answer is in two Chinese words 忠 and 义 which symbolise the Loyalty and righteousness. 关羽 was portrayed as a tragic hero whose entire life can be summarized by those two words.
He is a perfect role model for any ruling class to promote those values which are crucial to the stability of the society. Chinese are supposed to be loyal to the Emperor and place the righteousness above personal interest. Chinese recognized the value of 关羽 and made him one of their Gods. To this day 关羽 is still being worshiped by Chinese especially by both gangster and police forces.
He is a great general,not just a virtual character.He is known as “武圣”(a battle saint or God Of War) in China.
