Description: 1 online resource (xiv, 497 pages)
Contents: The divine root being conceived, the origin appears ; The moral nature cultivated, the Great Dao is born --
Having fully awakened to Bodhi's wondrous truths, Cut Māra, return to the root, and fuse the primal spirit --
The Four Seas and the Thousand Mountains all bow to submit ; From Ninefold Darkness ten species' names are removed --
Appointed as a Bima, how could he be content? ; Named Equal to Heaven, he's still unpacified --
Disrupting the Peach Festival, the Great Sage steals elixir ; With revolt in Heaven, many gods try to seize the fiend --
Guanyin, attending the banquet, inquires into the affair ; The Little Sage, exerting his power, subdues the Great Sage --
From the Eight Trigrams Brazier the Great Sage escapes ; Beneath the Five Phases Mountain, Mind Monkey is stilled --
Our Sovereign Buddha makes scriptures to impart ultimate bliss ; Guanyin receives the decree to go up to Chang'an --
Chen Guangrui, going to his post, meets disaster ; Monk River Float, avenging his parents, repays their kindness --
The Old Dragon King, in foolish schemes, transgresses Heaven's decrees ; Prime Minister Wei sends a letter to an official of the dead --
Having toured the Underworld, Taizong returns to life ; Having presented melons and fruits, Liu Quan marries again --
The Tang emperor, firm in sincerity, convenes the Grand Mass ; Guanyin, revealing herself, converts Gold Cicada --
In the Den of Tigers, the Gold Star brings deliverance ; At Double-Fork Ridge, Boqin detains the monk --
Mind Monkey returns to the Right ; The Six Robbers vanish from sight --
At Serpent Coil Mountain, the gods give secret protection ; At Eagle Grief Stream, the Horse of the Will is reined. At the Guanyin Hall the Tang monk escapes his ordeal ; At the Gao Village the Great Sage disposes of the monster --
At Cloudy Paths Cave, Wukong takes in Bajie ; At Pagoda Mountain, Tripitaka receives the Heart Sūtra --
Bajie fights fiercely at the Flowing-Sand River ; Mokṣa by order receives Wujing's submission --
Tripitaka does not forget his origin ; The Four Sages test the priestly mind --
The dharma-body in primary cycle meets the force of the cart ; The mind, righting monstrous deviates, crosses the spine-ridge pass --
At the Three Pure Ones Temple the Great Sage leaves his name ; At the Car Slow Kingdom the Monkey King reveals his power --
Heresy flaunts its strength to mock orthodoxy ; Mind Monkey shows his saintliness to slay the deviates --
The Chan Master, taking food, is demonically conceived ; Yellow Hag brings water to dissolve the perverse pregnancy --
Dharma-nature, going west, reaches the Women Nation ; Mind Monkey devises a plan to flee the fair sex --
Deviant form makes lustful play for Tripitaka Tang ; Upright nature safeguards the uncorrupted self --
The true Pilgrim lays bare his woes at Mount Potalaka ; The false Monkey King transcribes documents at Water-Curtain Cave --
Two Minds cause disturbance in the great cosmos ; It's hard for one substance to reach Perfect Rest --
Priests are hard to destroy --
that's great awakening ; The Dharma-king perfects the right, his body's naturalized --
Only when ape and horse are tamed will shells be cast ; With merit and work perfected, they see the Real --
Nine times nine ends the count and Māra's all destroyed ; The work of three times three done, the Dao reverts to its root --
They return to the Land of the East ; The Five Sages attain immortality.
Other Titles: Xi you ji.
Monkey and the monk
