Dragon Gods

Dragon is regarded as the most auspicious creature in Chinese mythology. There is also a year named after the dragon in the Chinese calendar. People born in this year are self reliant, upright and don’t listen to others. The Year of the Dragon, which takes place ever twelve years, is lucky. Children born in the dragon year are blessed, and enjoy good health, wealth and happiness. Although strong and decisive the Dragon is not manipulative or sly. This auspicious creature is considered to be generous, upright and helpful. Dragon gods are Chinese mythological gods who are worshipped in China even today. The Chinese dragon is considered to be the most powerful and divine creature and is the controller of all waters. The dragon symbolizes great power and can destroy everything by spitting fire.  One of the most famous dragons in Chinese mythology is Ying Long, or "Responding Dragon" who is the god of rain. Many people in different places pray to him in order to receive rain. The Chinese proudly call themselves as the descendants of dragon. The dragons generally symbolize ultimate abundance, prosperity and good fortune. In China people pray to dragon for everything.

Dragon dance is very famous and synonymous with Chinese New Year. The Chinese dragon is considered to be very intelligent, kind and generous. It is a symbol of power and it is believed that if you have a painting of dragon in your house or office it will bring good luck to you. According to Feng Shui dragons are considered auspicious and help to drive away negative ‘Chi’. The Dragon is the ultimate representation of the forces of Mother Nature, the greatest divine force on Earth. The dragon controls the sun, wind and rain and is closely guarded as the ultimate symbol of good fortune. 

There are nine major types of Chinese dragons.  They are the horned dragon, the winged dragon, the celestial dragon (which supports and protects the mansions of the gods), the spiritual dragon which generates wind and rain for the benefit of mankind), the dragon of hidden treasures (which keeps guard over concealed wealth), the coiling dragon (which lives in water), and the yellow dragon (which once emerged from water and presented the legendary Emperor Fu Shi with the elements of writing). The last of the dragon is the king of dragons.

Since the dragons have a loud voice it is believed that the sound they make can ward off evil spirits and bring good luck. So dragons are worshipped by Chinese all over the world and Feng Shui also preaches the importance of dragon to bring in good luck. Positioned in the east where the sun rises a dragon can definitely attract good ‘Chi’ to the place. Since it is closely associated with Mother Nature dragons play a vital role in Feng Shui. The Dragon is a must for all aspirations you desire in life which could be gained from good Feng Shui. A fat and healthy Dragon is the most essential characteristics needed for successful blessings.
