Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How Kuan Yin (Guanyin), who could have achieved nirvana much sooner, postponed her total enlightenment so that she could provide earthly help to those in need; how the world was created by the death of Hun-Tun (chaos), who had no eyes, ears, nostrils or mouth and died when his friends Shu, ruler of the South and Hu, ruler of the North, cut seven holes, over seven days, so that Hun-Tan could see, hear, breathe and eat; 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 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; how Monkey became drunk while conquering the world, enabling his heavenly foes to send him to Hell; how Monkey was given a magical weapon by a Dragon King but misused it by trying to conquer the world; and how the smiling god of longevity, Shou-lao, records the time of a person's natural death as soon as that person is born, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
