Today, the Xiaobian of China story network brings you the story of Shen Gongbao. Interested readers can follow the Xiaobian to have a look.


Shen Gongbao, a character, is an extremely strange existence in the romance of gods. In order to deal with the less gifted elder martial brother (Jiang Ziya), he did everything. But in the end, what did he get? This egoist who was committed to feudal worship was completely banned by the sect. He was also used to block the eye of Beihai, which was despised by all immortals, and suffered both spiritual and physical humiliation.

Such an outcome seems too unreasonable for Shen Gongbao, who is obsessed with franchising and full of thoughts. Of course, to explain Shen Gongbao’s abnormal behavior, we have to find the answer from the romance of gods.

In the seventy-two chapters of the original work, Shen Gongbao once vaguely told the reason.

At that time, Jiang Ziya was ambushed by his younger martial brother. He was angry and puzzled for a moment, “I have nothing against you. Why are you so angry with me?” And see Shen Gongbao slowly come: “you don’t remember that in Kunlun, you leaned on the momentum of the Antarctic fairy, and you didn’t have good eyes at all; call you first, and you just ignored it, and then insult me with the Antarctic fairy? Also call the white crane boy to take my head, hoping to harm me; this is murder injustice, haven’t you said? You are on the stage to worship the general today, and want to kill criminals and hang the people; I’m afraid you can’t enter the five passes, and you should die here first?”

There are two past events in it, which also happened together.

First, when Jiang Ziya led the list of gods down the mountain, Shen Gongbao summoned behind him, intending to get close. How can Zi Ya ignore it? Shen Gongbao felt insulted. Second, after catching up and exchanging greetings, Shen Gongbao played a gambling match with Ziya and threw his head into the air. Unexpectedly, he was attacked by the Antarctic fairy again. The crane boy held it in his mouth and nearly lost his life. Based on this, Shen Gongbao resented it.

But on reflection, it seems that Jiang Ziya has been wronged greatly.

It turned out that when Jiang Ziya came down the mountain, master Yuanshi Tianzun told him, “if anyone calls you here, you must not answer him. If you answer him, there will be 36 expeditions against you.” In other words, Ziya didn’t pay much attention to his younger martial brother, but it wasn’t because he received the God sealing task and felt that his identity was different from that in the past. He was floating in the air and looked down on his former fellow disciples, just because the emperor had told him so long ago that he dared not disobey his master’s orders. The accidental killing of the Antarctic fairy was by no means Jiang Ziya’s intention. On the contrary, when the fairy Weng made the crane boy prepare to kill, Zi Ya pleaded bitterly and left Shen Gongbao alive. Shen Gongbao didn’t appreciate it at all.

It can be seen that when a person is blinded by hatred, he often cannot remember the good of others and completely remembers the bad.

However, just because he was despised, Shen Gongbao would have to carry Jiang Ziya to the end hysterically. Is it the practice person who is so generous? When we explore this king’s life experience between the lines of the original book, we will probably understand what he did.

Shen Gongbao made his debut in the 37th round. The original book described him as follows: “refining the five element true beginning formula, moving mountains and seas is more mysterious; subduing dragons and subduing tigers follow my will, crossing cranes and riding dragons into the nine days. The purple air soars tens of thousands of feet, and when I like it, I plant Golden Lotus in the big house; when I step on the glow, I play idly, and I have been free for thousands of years.”

It can be seen that Shen Gongbao is at least a person who has practiced for thousands of years, and has some abilities, such as subduing the dragon and subduing the tiger, crossing the crane and riding the dragon. On the contrary, Jiang Ziya only went up the mountain to practice for 40 years, and the graduation report given to him by the emperor of the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty was even more embarrassing, “fairy fate is difficult to achieve”. Old and capable Shen Gongbao, how can he call senior brother Ziya instead? This contrast is very interesting. If you want to find out, there is actually a lot of knowledge in it.

It turned out that in ancient times, the seniority of apprenticeship was based on the time of entry, and it probably had little to do with the same age. This is a bit like laodunuo of Huashan sect in “Xiaoao Jianghu”. Although he is old and makes fox rush a lot, he has to be a junior brother because of his late entry. In journey to the west, Zhu Bajie and Sha Seng are probably older than Sun Wukong (Sun Wukong first went to heaven as Bi Mawen, and they have become middle-level cadres), but they converted to Buddhism later, so they need to call monkey brother the eldest martial brother. This is what we often say about the generation of capital arrangement.

It can be inferred from this that Shen Gongbao was a monk on the way. He should have been practicing for no more than forty years. Before that, Shen Gongbao had mostly traveled in the Jianghu and had many intersections with heretics. It can be seen that Shen Gongbao was congenial in his later dealings with the apostles. If we speculate about the identity of Shen Gongbao, we can easily think of the tiger power immortal in journey to the West. As the first national teacher of Chechi state, this demon road has first-class deception ability and is good at head changing. Its skills are almost the same as Shen Gongbao. As for the level of tiger power immortal, as the land God of Che Chi said, “I don’t know where he learned heretical Kung Fu”. Interestingly, this is also the evaluation of Shen Gongbao by the Antarctic fairy in the romance of gods. As for the original form of the tiger power immortal, after being killed by the monkey king, it showed a spotted tiger with a flower forehead, while Shen Gongbao’s real body, “the romance of gods” due to the interpretation of orthodox identity, although it is not clear, it can be speculated that it may come from the practice of the leopard spirit.

The emperor of the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty has always despised people who are heretical. Why did he want to include Shen Gongbao under the door? We will talk about it again in another article. But for such a disciple with a black history, it is almost certain that he cannot be reused. There is a subtle psychological projection in the 52 chapters of the original book. At that time, Shang Zhou group shouldered a son and heard that the grand master Juelong mountain was dead. Shen Gongbao had to find a new candidate to fight against Jiang Ziya. When he went to the Feilong cave in Jialong mountain, he saw a four foot dwarf practicing there. This person is Tu xingsun, a disciple of three generations of Buddhism.

So there is the following dialogue.

Shen Gongbao asked, “how many years have you studied arts?”

Tu Xing sun replied, “I have learned skills for a hundred years.”

Shen Gongbao shook his head and said, “I don’t think you can become an immortal, so you have to build a world of wealth.”

Tu xingsun was moved by what he said, so he stole the fairy rope that the master feared to leave sun (a disciple of the first emperor of the Yuan Dynasty), and went down the mountain to help tyranny.

How easy it is for sun yuan to go down the mountain? Of course, there is Shen Gongbao’s eloquent Kung Fu, as well as his own troubled fermentation of learning skills for a hundred years but not getting the right results. However, from the means of Tu xingsun’s subsequent descent, he forcibly married Deng Chanyu, the daughter of Deng Jiugong, and used tricks to force his lover on the night of his wedding. The overlord finally succeeded in bowing hard, which shows his heretical Kung Fu. It can be inferred that Sun Ying of Tu Xing, like Shen Gongbao, became a monk halfway.

In other words, Shen Gongbao said that Tu xingsun could not “become an immortal”, which was actually complaining about his situation and sighing that “he had to build a world of wealth”.

It is conceivable that Shen Gongbao, who is high in ambition and depressed, has encountered the career ceiling due to identity problems. He has been angry all the time, especially after Jiang Ziya received the God sealing task, he reached the threshold of blowout. Therefore, Shen Gongbao didn’t know where to hear that when this poor elder martial brother was leading the mission of immortality, he once played a sarcastic role, “Jiang Ziya is expected to protect Zhou, how much skill you have, and you have only been practicing Taoism for 40 years”, and he had to wrestle with this straw bag elder martial brother. This is the story of the 36 Route Army’s expedition against Xiqi.

This seems to be a story of Shen Gongbao becoming a demon. But is this really the truth? Maybe what we see is just the tip of the iceberg. The face of the mythical world is hidden in the panic… Disclaimer: the above content comes from the network, and the copyright belongs to the original author.
