    Myths, Legends and Folklore of China

    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; how a farmer befriended a fox that took the form of an old man who, magically, took the farmer to a restaurant far away, to be entertained in grand style, only for the farmer to eventually realise that respectable people do not befriend foxes, upon which the fox and his vulpine friends vanished, leaving the farmer far from home and without money; 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; 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 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); and how the smiling god of longevity, Shou-lao, records the time of a person's natural death as soon as that person is born, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China. (We do not promote superstition and they are presented for your interest only.)
