Guan Yu, by the style name Yunchang, topped the five generals of Shu Han, One of The Three Kingdoms. He has been a fondly remembered legend for two thousand years, appearing in word-of-mouth stories like "Oath of Brotherhood in the Peach Garden", "Three Heroes Combating Lv Bu", and "Hua Xiong Dies While the Wine Is Still Warm". Why is Guan Yu the most worshipped out of the myriad heroes over the two thousand years? It is because of one work: righteous.
Cao Cao, a warlord with thousands of capable generals, admired Guan Yu alone, just for his righteousness. In his search of his sworn brother Liu Bei, Guan Yu surrendered to the Han Dynasty, not to Cao himself. Cao had done what he could to win over Guan Yu: high rank, plenty of gold, luxurious banquets, a once-in-a-blue-moon steed Chi Tu Ma, the tile of Prince Shouting, etc. But Guan Yu was more concerned about Liu Bei, and as soon as he got news about Liu Bei, he gave up everything and, battling alone through hundreds of miles, escorted Liu Bei's two wives safely to the side of Liu Bei.
Confucius and Guan Yu are the two saints of China, the former ideological and the latter military. Righteousness is woven into relations with the people around us: parents, brothers and sisters, and friends. Such a traditional virtue has traveled along with the migrating Chinese people to every corner of the world: Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Europe, and America, where the hardworking Chinese and Asian people setup Guan Yu statues and temples to seek his protection for peace and wealth.
In Houston, a city in the Southwest of the United States, some Asian people pooled their efforts and resources to build the Texas Guandi Temple reflecting the classic and grand multiethnic culture of Asian immigrants in the United States as well as featuring the traditional Chinese culture and architecture. If you enter the temple through the front gate, you will see Guanyin Bodhisattva before you, a group of buddhas at the left, and the Imperial Doctor to the right. In front of the main hall are the Confucious the Sage, Prince Nouzha, and Maitreya the Happy Buddha. Right in the main hall is the martial and elegant Guan Di the Saint, with Prince Guan Ping and General Zhou Cang at the sides and Ma Ye down below. In the back hall are Sakyamuni, Goddess of the Ninth Heaven, Empress Heaven, and Di Zang King. At the two sides of the main hall are some other goddesses and legendary figures: Goddess Zhu Chu, Di Mu Yuan Gong, Tai Sui Ye, God of Wealth, Imperial Doctor, Prince Nouzha, and Prince Hong Hai er.
The Texas Guandi Temple is in the heart of Houston, facing the University of Houston Central accross the wide and bustling Highway 45. The temple dominates a broad field of vision and is tended by several learned monks headed by the renowned Master Thanyaphong from Thailand. Texas Guandi Temple is now the largest Guandi temple in the United States and one of the tourist temples designated as tourist resorts by the City Hall of Houston. Come and visit us, the Temple always blesses the faithful.
