Many people don’t know about monk Tang in journey to the West. Next, we will enjoy it with the Xiaobian of China story network.
There is a legend in the monster world that eating Tang Monk’s meat can lead to immortality. The first monster to reveal the news was the white bone fairy. She said at that time:
“Good luck, good luck! For several years, my family has said that the Tang monk in eastern China took Mahayana. He was the incarnation of the golden cicada son and the mother of ten generations of practice. Some people ate a piece of his meat and lived a long life. Today is the day.”
Baigujing said that eating Tang Monk’s meat can lead to immortality. It can be said that one stone provoked thousands of waves. It spread from generation to generation in the monster world. All kinds of demons and ghosts vied with each other to catch him at the place where Tang monk must pass. Even the mounts, pets and children of the immortals in the sky could not help but be excited and steal the lower world to try to eat a bite of Tang Monk’s meat for the demon to achieve the goal of eternal life.
These monsters listen to the wind as rain, and they don’t distinguish the true from the false. In fact, even the white bone spirit, the initiator of the terracotta warriors, is just hearsay. No one has verified whether eating Tang Monk’s meat can live forever, but anyway, the monsters are in a lucky mood. What if it’s true? If it’s true, you’ll make a lot of money. If it’s false, it doesn’t matter. The big deal is to have a big meal.
Why are monsters keen to achieve immortality by eating Tang Monk meat? Because this is the easiest way to implement. As we all know, the life span of both immortals and monsters is not infinite. In the western travel world, there are three ways to prolong longevity. One is the flat peach of the queen mother; One is the ginseng fruit of zhenyuanzi; One is the golden elixir of the Supreme Lord.
However, these three kinds of things can only be expected but impossible for monsters. They can only quench their thirst at the sight of plum blossoms and will never be available. Not to mention the monsters, most of the official immortals who are serious in the sky can not get them. For example, only the invited high-level immortals are qualified to eat oneortwo peaches at the peaches banquet. Zhenyuanzi’s ginseng fruit is the private property of other people, and it is definitely not available to people with ordinary relations. The Supreme Lord is the founder of the world. Ordinary immortals can’t even see their faces, let alone eat other people’s gold pills.
What high-level immortals can’t get, and the low-level monsters and elves are even more wishful thinking. Therefore, eating Tang Monk’s meat is the easiest to achieve. This is the reason why the monsters like moths to the fire want to catch Tang monk. So the question is, why don’t you hurry to eat monk Tang when many monsters catch him? This involves the psychological problems of monsters. After a lot of hard work, the monsters finally caught monk Tang. They hoped to calm down and eat steadily.
But most of the time, monsters only catch Tang Monk and Zhu Bajie monk Sha. But the monkey king is hard to deal with. Even if they catch him, they are easy to escape. So the monster hopes to catch the monkey king completely and eat the Tang Monk’s meat without any worries. Otherwise, the monkey can’t tell when to make trouble and make the monster restless. The monster is always afraid of monkey retaliation and has no intention to eat Tang Monk’s meat.
In addition to the monster’s fear of Monkey King’s ability, he is also very afraid of his identity, because monkey king caused havoc in the heavenly palace 500 years ago and was granted the holy sage of heaven by the Jade Emperor. This is something that monsters all know. The monsters were afraid that if they could not catch the monkey king, they would have endless trouble. They were afraid that the monkey king would go to heaven to find help to deal with himself. Therefore, the monsters hoped that after they caught the monkey king completely, they would steam and boil their teachers and disciples together, and let the monsters all over the cave have a good meal.
The third reason is that Jin chanzi, the second disciple of the Tathagata Buddha, was not an ordinary monk in his previous life. He shouldered the great mission of learning Buddhist scriptures from the west, and it was impossible for him to be eaten by monsters. The Tathagata Buddha, including the great gods of heaven, would take various ways to make trouble for monsters so that they would never eat the Tang monk.
I think the decision of the monsters to postpone eating Tang monk at the critical moment may have a great relationship with the psychological intervention of the great gods thousands of miles away. The great power of such immortals as the Tathagata Buddha, the Supreme Lord, is unimaginable. They can use their great power to intervene or change the monster’s psychology, so that Tang Monk can survive.
In addition, in order to ensure the safety of Tang monk, the Buddha and Tianting arranged a mixed formation of up to 30 immortals to protect them in secret. These immortals are Liuding Liujia, Wufang Jiedi, four value Gongcao, 18 Jialan, etc. These immortals take turns on duty to guard.
In particular, the golden head Jiedi took great pains to stand by for personal guards for 24 hours. It was a daydream for monsters to want Tang Monk’s meat.
