As we all know, Kunlun Mountain is the first sacred mountain in China. It is said that there are gods living on it. Today, let’s talk about the beautiful legends of Kunlun Mountain in detail. Let’s have a look at them with interested friends.
The magnificent peaks of the Kunlun Mountains are said to be the incarnation of the two younger sisters of the Jade Emperor. Kunlun Mountain has a prominent position as “the ancestor of ten thousand mountains” in the cultural history of the Chinese nation. It is the location of the Taoism center of the Hunyuan sect (Kunlun sect) in the late Ming Dynasty, and it is also the first sacred mountain in China.
Four hundred miles southwest of huaijiang mountain is the Kunlun Mountain, the capital of the Yellow Emperor. Kunlun Mountain is in the charge of shenluwu, who also manages the nine regions in the sky. Lu Wuren has a tiger’s face, a tiger’s claws and nine tails.
In addition to the mountain gods, there are many strange birds and animals living in the Kunlun Mountains. For example, the earth mole in the mountain likes to eat people. It has four horns, and when it is quiet, it looks like a big goat. In addition, there is a large bird called Qinyuan in the mountains, which is shaped like a wasp and similar in size to mandarin ducks. If Qinyuan stings other birds and animals, they will die. If it stings trees, they will also die. People encounter it with more or less bad luck. There is also a kind of quail, which manages various utensils and costumes of the Yellow Emperor.
On the Kunlun Mountains, there is a tree called Sha Tang, which is similar in shape to the Tang tree. It has yellow flowers and red fruits. The fruits taste like plums, but have no seeds. Begonia can be used to prevent floods. If people eat its fruit, they won’t drown. The long grass in the mountains looks like sunflower in shape and tastes like onion. Eating it can relieve fatigue. The river originates here, flows southward, and then flows eastward into Wuda. Red water also originates here and flows southeast into the water of Si Tian. The ocean water also originates from the Kunlun Mountains and flows southwestward into the water of Chou Tu. Black water also flows out of the Kunlun Mountains and flows southwest into Dadu.
The ancients regarded Kunlun Mountain as “the ancestor of ten thousand mountains”, “the ancestor of dragon vein”, “Longshan” and “ZuLong”, thus weaving many beautiful myths and legends. Chang’e running to the moon, a journey to the West and the legend of the White Snake, which are well known by women and children, are all related to Kunlun Mountain and are the cradle of Chinese myths and legends.
It is also said that the fairy Lord of Kunlun Mountain is the queen mother of the West. The “yaochi” recorded in many ancient books is the Black Sea at the source of Kunlun river. Here, 4300 meters above sea level, the lake is clear, birds and birds are in groups, and wild animals are everywhere. There are precious rock paintings in the wild ox Valley across the Kunlun river. Not far from the Black Sea, it is the legendary place where Jiang Taigong has cultivated the five elements avenue for 40 years. Yuxu peak and Yuzhu peak have been covered with snow for many years. The Kunlun spring, located on the North Bank of the Kunlun River, is the largest non freezing spring in the Kunlun Mountains.
