"DOUM"U, "THE CHINESE MOTHER AND SKY GODDESS, IS AN IMPORTANT DEITY IN THE TAOIST HIERARCHY. HER NAME MEANS "MOTHER OF THE GREAT WAGON". SHE IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE GODDESS OF THE "NORTH STAR "AND MOTHER OF THE SEVEN STARS OF THE "BIG DIPPER. DOUMU "HAS THREE EYES, FOUR HEADS (EACH FACING ONE OF THE FOUR CARDINAL DIRECTIONS), AND EIGHT HANDS HOLDING THE "SUN, MOON", AND DIFFERENT WEAPONS RESPECTIVELY. SHE IS PORTRAYED AS SITTING UPON A LOTUS THRONE.

SHE IS A "GODDESS" WHO CONTROLS NOT ONLY THE NATURAL PROCESS OF HEAVEN AND EARTH AND HELPS TO MAINTAIN THE UNIVERSE IN EQUILIBRIUM. SHE HOLDS THE BOOKS ON LIFE AND DEATH, CONTROLLING THE DAYS OF HUMANS AND SUPERVISES A REGISTER IN WHICH THE LIFE AND DEATH OF EACH PERSON ON EARTH IS RECORDED. SHE IS SAID TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO SAVE PEOPLE WHO CALL ON HER FROM MANY EVILS AND TROUBLES.

SHE IS RATHER LIKE A "KYAN YIN", BEING A COMPASSIONATE GODDESS AND IS VENERATED BY THOSE WHO WISH A LONG LIFE AND PERSONAL COMPASSION. IN TAOIST TEMPLES A HALL IS OFTEN DEDICATED TO HER. SHE IS ALSO VENERATED BY CHINESE BUDDHISTS.
