The Dragon King of Jinghe River in journey to the west is a dragon. Why was Wei Zheng beheaded? Readers who are not clear can read it together with the Xiaobian of China story network.

We modern people have never seen a dragon. We feel that the dragon is a very mysterious and powerful animal. And in the eyes of Chinese people, they have a natural sense of worship for dragons. We Chinese are called the descendants of the dragon, which shows how important the dragon is in the hearts of Chinese people.

We think the dragon is great, “tall” is sacred, but that is just our feeling. In journey to the west, the dragon is a very common species. The Dragon King of the four seas represents the highest level of the dragon family. From reading Journey to the west, we can see that the Dragon King of the four seas actually has a very low status in the fairy world. He belongs to the third class in terms of magic, Taoism and cultivation.


Every time the queen mother held that peach pageant, the Dragon King was not even qualified to be invited. Moreover, the Dragon liver and Phoenix pill was one of the dishes that served various gods at the banquet. Although it may not really be eating dragon meat, at least it also shows that the powerful immortal did not take the Dragon seriously at all, and did not care about the feelings and dignity of the Dragon King at all.

What’s more, the Dragon King of Jinghe River is just the Dragon King of the river. He dominates his own “one third of an acre”, which is a lower level than the Dragon King of the four seas. Some people may be confused that the Dragon King of the Jinghe River is an immortal in the water. How can Wei Zheng, an ordinary mortal, kill him? In journey to the west, Wei Zheng is not as simple as a mortal. He is a literary star from heaven, and Cao Guan is reincarnated. The so-called man Cao Guan is the messenger of heaven on earth. Wei Zheng, an angel, has a much higher status than the little Jinghe Dragon King. You can kill him for any reason.

On the surface, the death of the Dragon King of Jinghe River was a bet between him and yuanshoucheng. He was sentenced to death for breaking the law of heaven by withholding the Jade Emperor’s rainfall points. In fact, yuanshoucheng is Guanyin Bodhisattva. The purpose is to find a suitable reason for the eastward advancement of Buddhism. Who should be the introducer? You can’t find a great God. Because you can’t afford to provoke him, you can only find someone with low status and little ability. Therefore, the Dragon King of Jinghe River has become the unjust ghost.


After the death of the Dragon King of Jinghe, he blamed lishimin, the king of Tang, for Wei Zheng, who killed him, was a minister under lishimin. That must have been lishimin’s order. In fact, he really wronged lishimin. In any case, the ghost of the Dragon King of Jinghe still haunted lishimin, and dragged lishimin into the hell for the king of hell to judge.

After a three-day trip to the Tang emperor’s underground mansion, he was scared to death and had to turn to Buddhism. After returning to the sun, a land and water Dharma meeting was held. Guanyin Bodhisattva took the opportunity to publicize the mystery of Mahayana Buddhism to the king of Tang Dynasty, so he facilitated the Buddhist Scripture learning of Tang monk. The Dragon King of Jinghe River died unjustly, but he made a contribution to the great cause of learning Buddhist Scriptures for Tang monks.

The Dragon King of Jinghe River is like a slaughtered animal who sacrifices flags before the army goes out to fight; Just like the little people who sacrifice before breaking the battle line in the romance of gods. Death is insignificant but plays a huge role. Disclaimer: the above content originates from the Internet, and the copyright belongs to the original author.
