Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How Monkey escaped from Hell (where he was being punished for his megalomania) but not before deleting the names of all monkeys from the Book of Judgments; how Monkey was given a magical weapon by a Dragon King but misused it by trying to conquer the world; 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, during the quest to the Western Paradise, the Buddhist pilgrim Thang Seng disciplined Monkey by means of a magical, squeezing helmet; how each earthly house had both human and spiritual dwellers, including a kitchen spirit that was bribed with sweets so that he would not give, each new year, an unfavourable report to the Emperor of Heaven; the epic of Hsi Yu Chi, the Journey to the Western Paradise, a real event but made fantastic in the tale of how Monkey and Pig redeemed themselves by assisting their holy master in the quest; and how yin and yang were separated from the egg of chaos by the birth of Phu-hu who, while the universe expanded, filled the space between the earth (yin) and the sky (yang) until he died and his flesh became soil, his tears rivers and his breath wind, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
