  • Myths, Legends and Folklore of China

    How a dog married a princess after the emperor rashly promised his daughter to anyone who would bring him the head of his enemy (the dog, a considerate soul, did try to become human before the wedding but the emperor, again rashly, interrupted the magical rite before the dog's head had changed); how the war god Kuan Ti (Guanti) was once an heroic outlaw called Kuan Chung who, after his capture and execution, was in stages promoted from duke to prince and, eventually, deified; how Monkey (Sun Hou-Tzu) was hatched from an egg on the eastern side of the Pacific (so is technically a New World monkey); how Monkey was released from his mountain prison, to accompany the pilgrim Thang Seng and his assistant Pig on their quest to the Western Paradise, to bring back the original teachings of Buddha; how Monkey stole Taoist master Lao Chun's immortality pills which, as he had already eaten the peaches of immortality, made Monkey totally invulnerable to either age or violence; how the revolting Monkey was eventually captured, and sentenced to death, by Jade Yu-Ti, the Emperor of Heaven, who gave him over to the Taoist master Lao Chun, to be dissolved in the alchemical furnace but even that could not harm the indestructible Monkey; and how Buddha offered Heaven to Monkey if Monkey was powerful enough to escape from his palm, but Buddha's command of space and time was such that his palm encompassed the Universe, and Monkey was trapped within Buddha's magical mountain, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
