Lord Bao Sheng or Baosheng (保生大帝 - Baosheng Dadi) is the Chinese God Of Medicine
Lord Bao Sheng or Baosheng (-Baosheng Dadi) is the Chinese God Of Medicine or the God of Life-Protection, although in some places the ancient Emperor-God Shennong (Yandi) is still worshipped as the God of (Herbal) Medicine.
According to most stories Lord Bao Sheng only became a god after his death, having been born in Fujian Province as a human (making him a god in the Saints, Avatars And Immortals category of Daoist deities, along with other powerful and important gods like Guan Yu.)
Another tradition, however, says that although he was born as a man he actually was a deity from conception. These stories tell that when his mother was in a deep sleep, she dreamed of swallowing a white turtle - which was taken as an auspicious omen and which was a sign that she had become impregnated with an immortal's fetus.
During Wu Tao's mother's labour, the Goddess of Venus (Tai Bai Jin Xing,) the Nanling County Messenger and the God of the Big Dipper/Registrar of Deaths - Bei Dou Xing Jun) visited her, saying: "Behold the incarnation of heavenly Zi Wei Xing descended to the mortal realm" On their departure, Wu Tai was born and the room was filled with a sweet fragrance and brilliant light. More gods descended to congratulate them, filling the courtyard with a purple cloud.
