What is the origin of Liu Boqin in journey to the west? The following is a detailed introduction to the article by the editor of China story network.

In the journey to the west, there are many immortals who have saved the Tang monk, but there is only one mortal who has saved the Tang monk. This person is Liu Boqin, a man who can make the monkey king call “big brother” twice. From the surface, Sun Wukong simply expressed his gratitude. First, he thanked Liu Boqin for protecting Tang monk to Liangjie mountain, and second, he helped him pull the grass on his head. However, he was actually afraid of Liu Boqin’s backstage. Otherwise, with the character of Sun Wukong, he would never be so polite to an ordinary mortal.

As we all know, in the journey to the west, all living beings are divided into three realms, and all living beings in the three realms are under the jurisdiction of the Jade Emperor. Liu Boqin’s Liangjie mountain is not under the control of anyone in the mortal world, but here he is called the Zhenshan Taibao.

Such a powerful name is the only one in the world. The tigers and wolves on the mountain are afraid to hide away when they see him, not because of his strength and martial arts. These tigers, wolves, jackals and leopards are just like Sun Wukong, afraid of his backstage.

This backstage is naturally the Jade Emperor. Why do you say so? Because the Jade Emperor is the first immortal above sister Shan, and Liu Boqin is the first of the two worlds, that is to say, Liu Boqin is the successor chosen by the Jade Emperor on earth.

Some people say that the Jade Emperor is not an immortal who lives with heaven and earth, so he does not need any successor at all. However, this is not the case. Even the Tathagata Buddha in the west, the old Buddha who took office, the old Buddha who lit lanterns, and the future successor, the future Buddha Maitreya.

Even the Tathagata Buddha has successors, not to mention the Jade Emperor who commands the three realms? After five hundred years of torture, Sun Wukong seems to be a well behaved monkey. He knows that he can’t compete with the Jade Emperor by relying on his own weak strength.

Therefore, Sun Wukong chose to stand on the side of the Buddha, looking for a backer who can protect himself for a long time. This is also the main reason why Sun Wukong promised to protect the Tang Monk’s Buddhist scriptures in the West. In the end, Sun Wukong was afraid of Liu Boqin, rather than grateful to him from the bottom of his heart.
