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 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; 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 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 Monkey was released from his mountain prison, to accompany the pilgrim Thang Seng and his assistant Pig on their quest to the Western Paradise, to bring back the original teachings of Buddha; and how Monkey, as Master of the Heavenly Peach Orchard, was slighted by not being invited to the Peach Festival and avenged himself by eating and drinking all of the food and drink at the festival, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
