  • Myths, Legends and Folklore of China

    The epic of Hsi Yu Chi, the Journey to the Western Paradise, a real event but made fantastic in the tale of how Monkey and Pig redeemed themselves by assisting their holy master in the quest; the devastation caused by the horned, bodiless rain dragon, Thaoh-thieh, that lost its body as a punishment for eating people and, having no stomach, is insatiable; how victims of drowning became ghosts (kuei) until another unfortunate person drowned at the same place (an event that the kuei might therefore initiate); 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 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, in Heaven, criminals are executed by a strange, composite creature called a chhi-lin and how, in 1440, a giraffe (called a girin by its Somali captors) arrived at the Chinese court and was equated with the fabled creature; and 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, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China. (We do not promote superstition and they are presented for your interest only.)
