Around Guanyin Bodhisattva, people often see a pair of virgin boys and girls, but few of us know their names. In fact, the men and women are called shancai and Longnv. The following China story network editor will bring you a detailed introduction. Let’s have a look!

The Dragon girl was originally the youngest daughter of the Dragon King of the East China Sea, and also the favorite daughter of the Dragon King. Because she was born with beautiful eyes and smart eyes, she was deeply loved by the Dragon King. Little dragon girl was very playful. One day, she heard that the world played fish lanterns during the holidays. All kinds of fish lanterns lit up the whole night in colorful and extremely lively. So he clamored to go to the world to watch.

The old Dragon King stroked the dragon’s beard, shook his head and said, “the fields there are deserted and the people are messy. It’s not where you, the Dragon King’s baby princess, go. You’d better stay at home!” The Dragon girl is coquettish and pretends to cry, but the Dragon King always refuses to obey.

The Dragon Girl tooted her small mouth and had a naughty little idea. She thought to herself: if you don’t let me go, I’ll go, and I won’t tell you when I go! In this way, it was not easy to get to the third watch, and the little dragon girl quietly slipped out of the Crystal Palace in the East China Sea and turned into a very pleasant and good-looking fisherman girl. Stepping on the hazy moonlight, she came alone to a place where she played the most lively fish lantern.

This is a small fishing town. There are countless fish lanterns on the street, which dazzles the little dragon girl’s eyes. This lamp has various shapes: yellow croaker lamp, Aojiao lamp, octopus lamp, cuttlefish lamp, shark lamp, lobster lamp, crab lamp, scallop lamp, conch lamp, coral lamp… The Dragon woman looks east and West, the more she looks, the more happy she is, and sometimes she even pushes into the crowd without fear. After a while, she came to a crossroads with the crowd, which is the most interesting place in the town. Fish lanterns stack fish lanterns, and the lamp Hill connects with the lamp hill. It is colorful and brilliant.

The Dragon girl stood in front of a lamp mountain like a fool, and unconsciously she could see into God. Who knows, just at this time, half a cup of cold tea poured down from the attic next to it, just on the head of the dull dragon woman. The Dragon girl was startled and cried bitterly. She soon felt that things were bad. The Dragon girl who has turned into a girl can’t touch half a drop of water. In case of water, she can’t keep the girl’s appearance anymore, and only change back to her original shape. The Dragon girl was extremely anxious and terrified. She was afraid of showing a dragon shape in the street, causing wind and rain to disturb the Lantern Festival and frighten those who participated in the Lantern Festival. So he desperately squeezed out the crowd and ran to the beach. However, when she just ran to the beach, all of a sudden, she heard a “flickering” sound, and the Dragon girl became a big carp, lying on the beach unable to move, and she couldn’t climb into the water.

It happened that two fishing boys, one thin and one fat, came over on the beach. Seeing this golden fish, they were stunned at once. They didn’t know what was going on. “What kind of fish is this? So fat, who put it on the beach?” The fat boy was timid. He stood far away and said to the thin boy, “we’ve never seen such a big fish. I’m afraid some monster changed it. It’s very unlucky. Let’s go!” However, the thin boy was brave. He wouldn’t leave. While fiddling with the fish, he said, “no matter what kind of fish it is, it’s big and fat. If we carry it to the street and sell it, we will make a lot of money!” They muttered for a long time. Finally, the thin boy persuaded the fat boy, so they carried the fish and went to the street to sell.

Besides, on the night of the Lantern Festival, Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva was meditating in the purple bamboo forest, observing the Lantern Festival on earth while practicing. She had already seen what had just happened clearly. Seeing that the poor little dragon girl was suffering, she unconsciously moved her heart of compassion, and told the good fortune boy standing behind her: “go to the fishing town quickly. No matter how much money you spend, you should buy the big fish and send it to the sea for release. This is your fate, and you don’t have to ask why.”

However, the good fortune path was still very shallow, and he didn’t know how to change the silver, so he said, “Bodhisattva, how can disciples get the silver to buy fish?” Guanyin Bodhisattva smiled and said to shancai boy, “just grab a handful from the incense burner on the case, and then it will change with what you want.” Shancai nodded, grabbed a handful of incense ashes in the incense burner on a few cases, and then stepped on a Baolian flower, as if flying straight to the fishing town. It happened that the two boys had carried the fish to the street, were Hawking around, and were immediately surrounded by people watching fish lanterns. Among the crowd, those who were surprised, amazed and asked for prices, Jiji chirped and talked, but no one dared to buy such a big fish rashly, because they really didn’t know what the fish was, and they had never seen it. Among them, an old man with white beard said, “good boy, this fish is too big. Why don’t you cut it into small pieces and sell it?”

Long Nv chubby boy thought that the old man was very reasonable, so he borrowed a pig knife from the nearby store and raised it to kill fish. At this time, a child cried, “look, everyone! This big fish is crying.” The fat boy stopped the knife in his hand and saw that the big fish really shed two strings of crystal tears. He was so scared that he threw away the knife and ran out of the crowd. The thin boy didn’t panic at all. He picked up the pig knife and was about to kill the fish. He was stopped by a panting little monk: “cut no! Cut no! I’ll buy the whole fish.” Seeing that it was a little monk who came to buy fish, they were very surprised: “the little monk is a vegetarian. How did he buy fish?” The old man with white beard stopped, cocked his goatee and said, “is the little monk coming to buy fish going to return the meat to the vulgar?”

Everyone around the little monk sneered, so that the little monk didn’t feel blushed, so he quickly argued, “I don’t want to open meat, but buy it to set free!” With that, he took out a handful of fine silver, handed it to the thin boy, bought the fish, and asked him to help carry the fish to the seaside.

The thin boy had a bad idea again, and he was secretly happy: “the money has been made! He asked me to carry it to the beach. Once the little monk left, I can still carry this big fish back, and maybe I can sell it again!” So he greeted the fat boy, carried the big fish together, and followed the little monk to the beach.

Soon, the three came to the seaside, and the little monk told them to put the big fish into the sea. As soon as the fish touched the sea water, it immediately splashed and swam far away. I don’t know where it went. However, the fish turned around before leaving, nodded with the little monk, and then swam away. The thin boy saw that the fish swam away, which ended his idea of carrying back to sell money. But when he touched the broken silver, he spread it out and saw that the silver that had just been broken had already turned into a handful of incense ashes, which had been blown away by a gust of wind. In the twinkling of an eye, he wanted to find the little monk again, but he had disappeared.

Besides, in the Dragon Palace in the East China Sea, there has been a swarm of bees outside the palace since the little princess disappeared. The Dragon King of the East China Sea was also so angry that the dragon’s whiskers were straight up and furious. The turtle prime minister was so anxious that his head and neck stretched out from the old elder, and the general crab, the gatekeeper, was also scared to spit white foam. The jade shrimp palace lady was afraid to kneel on the ground and tremble, pleading with the Dragon King… It was not until dawn that the Dragon lady returned to the Crystal Palace, everyone was relieved, and the Dragon Palace returned to its usual calm. The Dragon King yuan stared up his eyes and angrily scolded the Little Dragon Girl: “little bastard, how dare you violate the regulations of the Crystal Palace and go out without permission, so that the whole dragon palace is worried about you! Say it quickly! Where are you going? How can you come back at this time?”

The Dragon girl knew that her father was really angry this time. Knowing that it was useless to be coquettish again, she truthfully told the story: “father, my daughter went to the shore to watch the fish lantern, and suffered a great disaster of life and death. If Guanyin Bodhisattva had not sent a boy with good fortune to save me, my daughter would not have come back!” Then I explained my experience in detail.

Hearing this, the Dragon King was pale and did not get angry again. He did not dare to offend Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. He was afraid that after GuanShiYin told the story, if the Jade Emperor knew it, he would be charged with “lax goddaughter” and would be severely punished by the Jade Emperor. The more he thought, the more angry he became. In a rage, he expelled his favorite little dragon girl from the Crystal Palace. The Dragon girl was naturally very sad. She didn’t know where to settle down in the vast world? Unconsciously, she came to the lotus ocean crying, and the continuous cry spread to the purple bamboo forest.

Guanyin Bodhisattva pinched his fingers and knew that the little dragon girl was coming, so he ordered shancai to pick up the Dragon Girl. When the old friends met again, shancai was also very happy in his heart. He came to the Dragon Girl with a smile and asked, “sister of the little dragon girl, do you still remember my little monk?” The Dragon Girl quickly wiped away the tears on her face, blushed and said, “why don’t you remember? You are brother shancai! You are my lifesaver! How can you forget!” Say it and then kowtow. Shancai grabbed her and said, “let’s go. It’s Avalokitesvara who asked me to pick you up!” Shancai and the Dragon girl walked into the purple bamboo forest hand in hand and came to Guanyin Bodhisattva.

As soon as the dragon lady saw the Avalokitesvara sitting quietly on the lotus platform, she bent over and worshipped. Guanyin Bodhisattva liked the Dragon girl very much, so he kept the little dragon girl and let her live in a cave near Chaoyin cave like brothers and sisters. This cave was later called “shancai Longnv cave”. In this way, the Dragon girl will always follow the Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. But later, the Dragon King repented and often asked the Dragon girl to go back. However, the Dragon girl was so attached to the scenery of Mount Putuo that she never wanted to return to the Crystal Palace where it was imprisoned.
