Lingbao Tianzun, also known as the Heavenly Lord of Spiritual Treasures is a Taoist god. Also known as Shangqing, he is numbered among the Three Pure Ones who head some forms of the Taoist pantheon. He is thought to be able to control everything that goes on in the present. The ruyi sceptre is a Chinese curved decorative object that serves as either a ceremonial scepter in Chinese Buddhism or a talisman symbolizing power and good fortune in Chinese folklore.
