AbstractMost of the Hong Kong Taoist temples are dedicated to Lü Chunyang. Therefore, Lüzu Wuji Baochan is the most commonly used Taoist scripture, and it is also the earliest chanting scripture used by Hong Kong Taoist temples since the 1940s. Nowadays, the common version of the Lüzu Wuji Baochan in Hong Kong is the 1961 version. It was reprinted by the Hong Kong Yunquan Xianguan based on the original version of the Guangdong Xiqiao Yunquan Xianguan in the 19th year of Guangxu (1893). This paper aims to explore the origin of the LÜzu Wuji Baochan compiled and published by Xiqiao Yunquan Xianguan in the 19th year of Guangxu Emperor’s reign and its relationship with other Lüzu repentance texts produced in various LÜzu altars elsewhere in the Qing dynasty. Such bibliography research will further reveal which master copy this widely-used repentance scripture in Guangdong area produced by editors in Yunquan Xianguan in Xiqiao Mountain is based on. In addition to the Xiqiao Yunquan Xianguan version, there were at least two more editions of (LÜzu) Wuji Baochan before the 19th year of Guangxu Emperor’s reign. The first one was named Yuqing Chunyang Cihang Wuji Baochan (The Precious Repentance of Non-Ultimate of Mercy Ferries of Pure Yang in the realm of Jade Purity), which is included in volume 59 of the 64-volumes LÜzu Quanshu re-edited by Shao Zhiling (1748-1810), disciple of a LÜzu Altar called Guixiang Ji in Wulin (nowadays Hangzhou) in the fortieth year of Emperor Qianlong’s reign (1775). The second one is Yudu Shixiang LÜsheng Zhenjun Wuji Duren Baochan (The Precious Repentance of Salvation of Non-Ultimate of the True Lord Saint LÜ, the Prime Minister of the Jade Palace); it originated from a LÜzu altar in Beijing city "Jingyuan Tan" during the 5th year of Jiaqing (1800). This paper argues that the editors of the Xiqiao Yunquan Xianguan had made new arrangements on these two books to compile the Lüzu Wuji Baochan. Furthermore, the conclusion of this thesis is that Xiqiao's Lüzu Wuji Baochan is a combination of Yuqing Chunyang Cihang Wuji Baochan and Yu Du Shi Xiang Lü Sheng Zhen Jun Wuji Duren Baochan
