Tientisma is a group of Chinese folk religious sects, namely the Holy Church of the Heavenly Virtueb and the Lord of Universe Church,c which emerged respectively from the teachings of Xiao Changming and Li Yujie, disseminated in the early 20th century1 The Lord of Universe Church is actually a later development of the former, established in the 1980s1

These religions focus on the worship of the "Heavely Deity" or "Heavenly Emperor" Tientì 天帝,1 on health through the proper cultivation of qi,1 and teach a style of qigong named Tianren qigong2 According to scholars, the doctrines of Li Yujie are traceable to the Taoist tradition of Huashan,3 where he studied for eight years4 The Lord of Universe Church is active both in Taiwan and mainland China, where it has high-level links1

Holy Church of the Heavenly Virtueedit

The origins of the Holy Church of the Heavenly Virtue 天德圣教 Tiāndé shèngjiào go back to Sichuan in 1899, with the alleged resurrection of a young boy named Xiao Changming 蕭昌明, 1896-1943 who had apparently died three days earlier After his revival, he declared that he had received Heaven's mandate tianming to save humanity from suffering He embarked on a successful religious career and attracted a large following

In 1937 he established his headquarters on Mount Huang in southern Anhui province where he died in 1943 Like other sects, Xiao Changming's movement was suppressed in China after 1949, but survives in Taiwan and Hong Kong In Taiwan, one of Xiao's disciples, Li Yujie, eventually decided to walk his own path and founded a new group called the Lord of Universe Church in 1978, which diverges doctrinally in several aspects from the mother group, yet also sees itself in the tradition of Xiao Changming's teachings

Currently, there exist two regional organizations for this religion Its Hong Kong headquarters is located at Castle Peak in the New Territories In Taiwan the religion's situation is characterized by disunity, with several separate organizations claiming to continue original Xiao's teachings

The Lord of Universe Church 天帝教 Tientì jiāo is based in Taiwan and is devoted to the Tientist beliefs as proclaimed by Li Yujie It is an offshoot of the Holy Church of the Heavenly Virtue and it emphasizes chanting, traditional medicine, and a form of meditation which it calls "quiet sitting" in English

Li Yujie was born in China He worked in the Guomindang but left in 1958 to ensure political independence for his fledgling newspaper In 1980 he claimed he was given permission by God to retransmit the message of the Heavenly Deity, which emphasize nuclear disarmament and Chinese unification His book, The Ultimate Realm, was translated into Japanese and English under his guidance
