Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
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 there are five kinds of lung (dragon), specifically the ethereal dragons of the rain and wind, the earthly dragons that created rivers and lakes, the five-clawed imperial dragons (most dragons are depicted with four claws), heavenly guardian dragons and dragons that protect hidden treasures; 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 Monkey was given a magical weapon by a Dragon King but misused it by trying to conquer the world; 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 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; and 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, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
