Unlocking the Essence of Li Chun: A Tribute to Tradition and Prosperity

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins

As the first of the 24 solar terms heralding the arrival of spring, Li Chun (立春), commences on February 4th this year, marking a time of renewal and promise.

Coinciding with the vibrant and joyous Lunar New Year festivities, Li Chun symbolises not only a season of growth but also embodies the spirit of rejuvenation, growth and new beginnings.

Li Chun: An Imperial Tradition

The historical roots of Li Chun reveal its profound significance in imperial China, where it anchored itself in the fabric of tradition and reverence. Since 1420, the year of the completion of the Temple of Heaven, annual rites and rituals surrounding Li Chun have unfolded in this sacred landmark, led by none other than the Son of Heaven—the Emperor himself.

Within the sanctum of the Temple of Heaven, the Emperor led in ceremonies to the Heavens, appealing on behalf of his earthly subjects for favourable weather conditions, crop yield and blessings upon the empire. This tradition highlighted the emperor’s responsibility as the earthly custodian, ensuring the well-being of his subjects.

The cauldron, a sacred vessel of offerings, bore witness to the Emperor’s supplications, laden with precious jewels, sandalwood, and agarwood. These offerings, imbued with symbolic resonance, sought to ensure prosperity and abundance for the realm.

The First Li Chun of Period 9: A Time of Significance

This year’s Li Chun bears special significance as the first term of Period 9, a period characterised by profound transformation and abundant opportunities. Governed by the Fire-elemental Star 9, Period 9 beckons with promises of renewal and growth, with sandalwood emerging as the key to unlocking one’s affinity with the Right Assistant Star.

Central to this transition is the invocation of sandalwood, an essential element in activating auspicious heavenly blessings. Emerging as a symbol of prosperity and abundance, Imperial Harvest-grade Sandalwood becomes a conduit in this new era, channelling auspicious energies and aligning individuals with their destined paths to success.

Sangang Wuchang (三纲五常): Pillars of Prosperity

Embedded within the essence of Li Chun are the timeless virtues of Sangang Wuchang (三纲五常) — the pillars of benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and sincerity.

The Sangang Wuchang — translated to the “Three Guiding Principles and Five Constant Regulations” — refers to the underlying tenets of Confucianism that have resonated with millions of adherents over the centuries. The “Three Guiding Principles” refer to the most important forms of interpersonal relationships formed between individuals in a given society. Meanwhile, the “Five Constant Regulations” refer to the favourable qualities of benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and sincerity. Guided by these virtues, individuals embark on a journey of empowerment, embracing tradition while forging ahead with courage and conviction.
