China has a history of 5000 years, in which there are all kinds of myths and legends. In this part of myths and legends, there are both true and false, as well as believable and believable. Today, let’s talk about the image of “Dragon King” in ancient Chinese mythology. According to mythological novels, the Dragon King is the leader of the sea and water, and is in charge of everything of the aquarium. More importantly, he can also spread clouds and rain, bringing sweet clouds and rain to the mortal people. Since ancient times, the Dragon King has always been a symbol of auspiciousness, so people have expressed their admiration for the Dragon King by building a Dragon King Temple and dancing dragons on new years and festivals. At the same time, they also hope that the Dragon King can bring good fortune to the world and bless themselves with bumper crops.

Ao Guang, Ao run, Ao Qin and AO Shun are four brothers

But all things have their roots, and only when there is cause can there be fruit. We all came to this world through pregnancy in October. There is always a process to conceive life. Is the Dragon King the same as us? In the original book journey to the west, it was described that “the Dragon King of the four seas”, namely Ao Guang, Ao run, Ao Qin and AO Shun, were ordered to take charge of the East, South, West and North Seas respectively, but there was no mention of where they came from and who their father was.


We all know that monk Tang’s mount is a white dragon horse, whose prototype is a dragon. In the original book, white dragon horse once said, “I was a flying dragon in the West Sea. Because I made a mistake, Guanyin Bodhisattva saved me… If I peed in the water, fish in the water ate Jackie Chan…”. It turns out that fish can become a dragon after drinking dragon urine. Is that the same with the four Dragon Kings in the East, South, West and North? This statement is absurd.

When we talk about “havoc in the heavenly palace”, we first think of the great disciple of Tang Monk Qi Tian, the great sage Sunwukong, who was finally subdued and suppressed by the Tathagata Buddha for 500 years. But in fact, there is such a figure in the myth and legend that once made a big fuss in the heaven, and this person is the father of the Dragon King of the four seas. It is said that in ancient times, in the south of the sea, there was an old dragon who had practiced for tens of thousands of years, named Pinghe. He was kind-hearted by nature and never harmed anyone. He had been concentrating on cultivation. However, he had never been successful and was not placed in high position. He felt very disgraceful and wanted to find a job.


One day he broke into the heaven and went to the Jade Emperor to judge. Because of his profound magic power, no one in the heaven could be invincible. The Jade Emperor was worried that he would make the heaven restless, so he promised him a position, appointed him as the Dragon King, and the lower world took charge of the four seas and commanded the aquarium. After pacifying the lower world, he dutifully managed the mortal world in good weather. Later, he married a dragon in the west of heaven and gave birth to four sons Ao Guang, Ao run, Ao Qin and AO Shun. Later, he took charge of the East, South, West and North Seas respectively, and the four brothers became the Dragon King of the four seas.
