Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How Monkey was given a magical weapon by a Dragon King but misused it by trying to conquer the world; 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, 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 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, 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 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, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
