    Myths, Legends and Folklore of China

    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; 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; how some cattle have twisted horns because some magical cattle were twisting off their horns to make a house of horns for a Thai girl, the daughter of a magical bull, but were told to stop because enough horns had already been gathered; how the souls of people eaten by tigers were enslaved by the big cats until until their ghosts (kuei) had lured someone else to a similar fate; how ageing, renegade foxes could avoid death by transforming themselves into attractive men and women, so as to seduce young people and drain them of their life-force; 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 an unburied corpse, with the legs traditionally bound together, may become a chiang-shih, a "hopping ghost", blind but vampiric and with powers that may include flight, long and prehensile eyebrows, powerful breath and the ability to change its appearance, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
