TIEN-HOU is the Chinese Goddess of fishermen. She was once a mortal woman named Lin Moniang with four brothers who were all sailors, each with his own ship. One day while they were at sea, Tien-Hou fell into a coma. Her mother tried to revive her and eventually succeeded. Tien-Hou protested that she had been awakened too soon. Later that day, three of her brothers returned home, saying that their ships had nearly been destroyed in storms at sea, but that a vision of Tien-Hou had appeared to them and led them to safety. The fourth brother never returned, for Tien-Hou had been awakened before she could save him.

Tien-Hou was still young when she died, and the people named her PRINCESS OF SUPERNATURAL FAVOR. She watches over all fishermen, and there are many temples in her honor along the coastline of China. Tien-Hou means "Empress of the Sky", but she is known by many names throughout China, including:
