BaileyO'Boston posted a topic in Newcomer CornerHello to everyone here. I am happy to have found this forum and will likely return many times to it. As for my reason for being here I had come looking for information about my home altar. My altar in question is dedicated to Tu'er Shen also known as the Rabbit God. Being a lesser known god not many manufacturers nor craftsmen sell statues of him so I have resorted to useing a image as a icon for paying respect to him and praying. Though I believe that this works I am not so sure. Either way I hope I have shown respect but I am still unsure if this is proper. I know that within Daoism there are few set in stone rules but I feel I should still ask.
BaileyO'Boston posted a topic in WelcomeHello to everyone here, I am of course new here but I feel I will certainly stay to read learn more from this wonderful forum. The reason for my searching out of the forum was due to a dilemma I am in. I wish to make a home altar to Tu'er Shen however most of my family will not permit me to place it in a proper place of prominence in the house. I understand a bedroom is not a proper place for an altar however I am stuck for choices. Its location will be were I had once had a Catholic prayer table that I had made for myself when I was seven years old so its location is of personal significance. No temple exists for Tu'er Shen except in Taiwan which is far out of my travel range. I am not sure what to do due to the situation, what should I do?
I'm considering making a home Taoist altar, but after doing a thorough internet search, I can't find out much information about what to use and then how to use it (chants, etc.). If anyone knows about these things I'd appreciate any information that you may have. Thanks in advance
