Lao-chun. The name of Lao-tzu in his deified form, one of the highest deities in religious Taoism. He has been incarnated many times, and is deeply revered as the supreme focus of worship. The reverence of both Lao-tzu and the Buddha led to a belief that Lao-tzu actually was the Buddha, who assumed that guise in order to convert all people to the way of Tao.
