Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How, after causing trouble in heaven, Monkey escaped to Mount Hua-Kuo, where he repulsed Heaven's armies, proclaiming himself to be both a saint and ruler of Heaven; 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 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 Monkey (Sun Hou-Tzu) was hatched from an egg on the eastern side of the Pacific (so is technically a New World monkey); 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; 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; and how Yang Chheng, a magistrate, liberated the citizens of Hunan from the cruel taxes of the emperor Wu-ti and, as a reward, became Fu-hsing, the god of happiness, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
