I still don’t know what kind of person king Yu Fu, the ancestor of Shu people, was? In fact, the ancestors of Shu people, from the silkworm cluster of “teaching people to raise silkworms”, to the Yufu of “teaching people to fish”, to the Du Yu of “teaching people to work for agriculture”, and the bieling of water control, are all related to agricultural production. Readers who are not clear can read it together with the editor of China story net.

In the myth, the ancestors of the Shu people are “cancong” and “Yufu”. Shu is connected with “Bracelet”, that is, wild silkworm. Cancong has a “vertical eye” and lives in a stone cave at the foot of Minshan Mountain. The three generations of cancong, Baifu and Yufu are all hundreds of years old and “immortal”. His main achievement is “teaching people to fish”. From the book of the king of Shu to now, there are many stories about this aspect in the folk oral stories in Western Sichuan.

“Yu Fu’s field was in Jianshan, and he was worshipped in the temple today.” (Book of the king of Shu) “” Yu Fu’s field was in Jianshan, and he suddenly got the immortal road. The people of Shu thought of it, so it was a temple. ” Another version of the annals of the Huayang Kingdom, Shu Gongben Ji, said: “the king (Yufu) hunted to the mountain of Wei, and then went to the immortal. Today the temple worships him.” (quoted from volume 888 of Yu Lan) this left a great imagination for later scholars and writers.

Yu Fu


The Yufu clan was the third clan after the cancong and Baiguan of the king of Shu in the Five Dynasties of the ancient Shu state, and its capital was Wanchun and Liucheng in Wenjiang District. Because the king of Yufu built the capital, he ordered the planting of willows as the national border. The ancient capital of Yufu was willow, which was called “Liucheng” (now the site of Yufu city in the north of Wenjiang city). After the subjugation of Yufu, the Yufu city was still welcoming the spring every year. Wanchun county was built in the Sui Dynasty, and it was called Liucheng by the people. Due to the migration of the waterway, the county moved to the south, which is now Liucheng. In the Tang Dynasty, it was renamed Wenjiang. The custom of planting willows is prevalent in the county. The last large-scale planting of willows was during the overhaul of Jiaqing period in the Qing Dynasty. More than 700 willows were planted along the embankment of HaoGou around the city. The reputation of Liucheng has been spread for four thousand years. From the perspective of cultural relics and archaeological findings, people have noticed that since the second phase of culture, there have been artifacts related to birds in Sanxingdui of Guanghan, which is related to the replacement of the cangcong family by the Bai Guan family. The large number of artifacts produced in the third period not only have bird patterns, but also have fish patterns. This change reflects that the third period culture of Sanxingdui is closely related to the bird and fish families, or it reflects the historical fact that the Yufu family replaced the Baiguan family.

The word “Fu” in Yufu has several common and false characters. According to Fang Yu’s summary of reading history, Pengshan County, Sichuan Province: “Yufu mountain is two miles northeast of the county, or Yufu Jinye.” “Sichuan Tongzhi” said: “yufujin in Nanxi County is thirty miles north of the county”; In the annals of the later Han Dynasty, “there are fish and Fujin in Nan’an (now Leshan)”; “The book of mountains and seas” and “the western classic of the great wilderness”: “a fish is dying, so it is called fish woman”; Du Yu in Zuo Zhuan in the 16th year of Wen wrote: “the three cities of benefit, you and Yuyong. Fish, Yufu county”; The word “Fu” in Jia Yi’s “Fu Niao Fu” is the word “Yi”, which is also the fake word of Fu. The above-mentioned Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, Yu Fu, and Yu Fu are actually one thing, all referring to Yu Fu. Fu is the original word, while Fu, Fu, Fu, Fu, Fu and Fu are the borrowed words of Fu. Disclaimer: the above content is from the Internet, and the copyright belongs to the original author.
