Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How the Lord of Heaven made Monkey Master of Heaven's Stables to keep him out of trouble but Monkey wrought havoc when he realised the reason for his appointment; 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 suicides became wandering and often malevolent ghosts (kuei), at least until the time of their natural death, as recorded by the deity Shou-lao, had been reached; how Monkey was given a magical weapon by a Dragon King but misused it by trying to conquer the world; 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; and how yin and yang were separated from the egg of chaos by the birth of Phu-hu who, while the universe expanded, filled the space between the earth (yin) and the sky (yang) until he died and his flesh became soil, his tears rivers and his breath wind, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
