An important deity of early Taoism and main god of the Way of Supreme Peace (dai-bing dao). He was regarded by the common people as the ruler of the world who descends to Earth to guide and assist mankind. From the beginning of the world he is said to have appeared, again and again, in the shape of Taoist masters to spread the teachings about the Tao. One of his incarnations was Lao-zi. His name means "Ancient Yellow Lord".
