Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How Yu-ti and his wife Wang-mu rule heaven and, at one time, aided their earthly counterparts; 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 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 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 Monkey (Sun Hou-Tzu) was hatched from an egg on the eastern side of the Pacific (so is technically a New World monkey); 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 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, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
