Origins

The Chinese constellation Azure Dragon of the East

The Seiryu is one of the Dragon Gods who represent the mount or chthonic forces of the Five Forms of the Highest Deity. He is also one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations, which are the astral representations of the Wufang Shangdi.

The Azure Dragon corresponds to the season of spring and the east. In ancient times, the dragon enjoyed a much higher status in China than in India, as the Chinese believe dragons are a supreme holy animal, the symbol of the emperor.

Trivia

  • Although Chinese dragons are commonly associated with water, the Azure Dragon is the exception, as its element is wood.
  • Its seven mansions are the Horn, Neck, Root, Room, Heart, Tail, and Winnowing Basket.
