Way of Infinite Harmony
The Way of Infinite Harmony is a Taoist sect that worships Princess Ma Gu, Goddess of Hemp (Immortal Xu Miao). The most famous story featuring Ma Gu is the Ma Gu Xian Shou (a story that appears in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West). This story tells of a great feast where Ma Gu gives the Queen Mother of the West (a very important Deity) a special wine made of cannabis (other sects claim this wine to be made from mushrooms). During the Cultural Revolution Ma Gu devotees were persecuted and the sect went into decline. However since the religious reforms in China the sect is once again growing, and now has followers from all over the globe.
