Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How Yang Chheng, a magistrate, liberated the citizens of Hunan from the cruel taxes of the emperor Wu-ti and, as a reward, became Fu-hsing, the god of happiness; how Monkey became drunk while conquering the world, enabling his heavenly foes to send him to Hell; 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 suicides became wandering and often malevolent ghosts (kuei), at least until the time of their natural death, as recorded by the deity Shou-lao, had been reached; 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, when Monkey asked Thang Seng to remove the squeezing helmet that he had used to discipline Monkey during the quest to the Western Paradise, Monkey found that it had already vanished as a result of his reformation and enlightenment; and how Yu-ti and his wife Wang-mu rule heaven and, at one time, aided their earthly counterparts, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
