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; 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; how some cattle have twisted horns because some magical cattle were twisting off their horns to make a house of horns for a Thai girl, the daughter of a magical bull, but were told to stop because enough horns had already been gathered; how the smiling god of longevity, Shou-lao, records the time of a person's natural death as soon as that person is born; how Monkey stole Taoist master Lao Chun's immortality pills which, as he had already eaten the peaches of immortality, made Monkey totally invulnerable to either age or violence; and how Monkey escaped from Hell (where he was being punished for his megalomania) but not before deleting the names of all monkeys from the Book of Judgments, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
