Rain Master ChiSongZi: Deity of Rain and Divine Medicinal Knowledge

Chisongzi, the Rain Master from ancient Chinese mythology, possessed divine knowledge of medicinal herbs, the ability to control rain, and a connection to immortality.

ChiSongZi(赤松子) is the deity who served as the Rain God during the time of Shennong. He consumed a divine medicine called Ice Jade Powder and also taught Shennong to use it. He had the ability to enter fire without being burned. On Kunlun Mountain, he often visited the stone chamber of the Queen Mother of the West. He traveled along with the wind and rain, traversing the heavens and the earth. Shennong’s youngest daughter followed him and also became an immortal, ascending to the heavens together. During the reign of Emperor Ku, Chisongzi took on the role of a Rain Master and wandered the mortal realm. Present-day Rain Masters revere him as their ancestor.

《雨师赤松子》

赤松子者,神农时雨师也。服冰玉散,以教神农。能入火不烧。至昆仑山,常入西王母石室中。随风雨上下。炎帝少女追之,亦得仙,俱去。至高辛时,复为雨师,游人间。今之雨师本是焉。
