Qingshui (Chinese: 清水; pinyin: Qīngshuǐ; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Chheng-chúi; 1047-1101), born Chen Zhaoyin (陳昭應) was a Northern Song Dynasty Chan Buddhist monk from the region of Anxi County in Quanzhou, China. He was said to have gained supernatural powers gained through his skill in speaking the dharma and meditation. Through this, he is said to have saved the town of Anxi during a period of drought, bringing rain as he went from place to place. In reverence, the villagers built shrines to him and hence became a deified person in Chinese folk religion.
Worship of Qingshui is especially popular in Taiwan where he is worshiped by local villagers for protection.
