For those of you who are very interested in journey to the west, the editor of China story network brings you detailed articles for your reference.

In the journey to the west, Zhen Yuan, the great immortal of ginseng fruit, must have a high status. In those days, the great general of rolling curtain could only have a look at the peach banquet in Tianting. The ginseng fruit that could not be eaten was planted in Zhen Yuanzi’s yard and sent to Tang Seng for him to eat. It can be seen that Zhen Yuanzi still attached great importance to Tang Seng. But Zhen Yuanzi was not afraid of the Tathagata, but Guanyin appeared very polite when he came. Why? What is the relationship between Zhen Yuanzi and Tathagata Guanyin?

1. Why is Zhen Yuanzi afraid of the Tathagata and Guanyin

As we all know, in the journey to the west, the Supreme Lord has always been a real power faction. The eight trigrams alchemy furnace can not only refine immortal elixirs, but also create magic weapons. These magic weapons are all powerful. Sun Wukong can suffer a lot if he steals one of the riding boys.

However, he also has a fatal shortcoming. As the saying goes, “two fists are hard to defeat four hands, and hungry tigers can’t stand the wolves.” even if a person has the ability to reach heaven, it is inevitable that he will be outnumbered and unable to stand alone. If he wants to make a difference in the three realms, the immortal has very limited choices, either to form an attack and defense alliance, or to recruit more disciples and expand his personal strength.

The most regrettable thing about the Supreme Lord is that he didn’t have an apprentice. When Sun Wukong made a big fuss in the peach garden, he only took fairy children, immortal generals, immortal officials and immortal officials to listen to the sermon of the ancient Buddha with lanterns. However, if there were several disciples under the door, it was impossible for them to attend the lecture. If there were disciples guarding the palace gate, it would not be cheaper for Sun Wukong to steal his own elixir.

The Tathagata Buddha can be called the Buddha, I’m afraid it has something to do with his ten disciples. The Tang Monk took scriptures from the west, and he relied on three disciples to subdue demons and Demons along the way. Zhen Yuanzi can become the ancestor of the earth immortals, and his disciples are much more than the Tathagata Buddha. There are countless scattered immortals under Zhen Yuanzi’s sect. Until the Tang Monk got the Scriptures, there were 48 disciples under his sect, and they are all true.

When the master and apprentice of Tang Monk passed by Wuzhuang temple, he took 46 proud disciples to listen to the preaching of the first emperor of the Yuan Dynasty, leaving only two youngest caretakers. Even the caretakers, Qingfeng and Mingyue, were 1320 years old and 1200 years old. At that time, Sun Wukong was not over 1000 years old. In journey to the west, it was time to cultivate immortals.

The jade emperor has suffered 1750 calamities, each lasting 129600 years, so he can dominate the three realms of heaven, earth and man.

It can be seen that there are not only a large number of disciples under zhenyuanzi’s sect, but also all of them are extremely extraordinary. Moreover, zhenyuanzi also attaches great importance to the cultivation of disciples, and specially takes them to participate in the preaching of the emperor at the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty. On the contrary, there is such a rare opportunity as the Taishang Laojun and the ancient Buddha preaching. No disciple can only take some family members.

In addition, there is a ginseng fruit tree in zhenyuanzi. No wonder Qingfeng and Mingyue say that “Sanqing is a friend of the master, the fourth emperor is the old friend of the master, Jiuyao is the younger generation of the master, and Yuanchen is the guest of the master.” it goes without saying that the status of Sanqing is two grades higher than the Buddha, who ranks first among the five elders, let alone Guanyin Bodhisattva?

Therefore, according to this analysis, Zhen Yuanzi’s magic power is definitely weaker than Sanqing’s, but since she can be called brother, Taoist friend, there is naturally not much difference. The disciples of Guanyin Bodhisattva are actually Jintong and Yunv, so Guanyin is actually afraid of Zhen Yuanzi, not like in the film and television drama.

2. Zhen Yuanzi

In the journey to the west, the ancestor of the immortals, the Taoist name Zhen Yuanzi, also known as the same king with the world. He practiced in Wuzhuang temple, Wanshou mountain, Hezhou, Xiniu. The ginseng fruits he planted mature once every 9000 years. If you smell the ginseng fruits, you can live 360 years; If you eat one, you can live 47000 years. During the fight with Sun Wukong, the immortal Zhenyuan wielded the magic of heaven and earth in his sleeve. He put the Tang Monk’s master and apprentice into his sleeve, including people and horses. His skill is great. After Sun Wukong invited Bodhisattva to save ginseng and fruit trees, he and Sun Wukong became brothers.

The Tang Monk’s master and apprentice passed by Wuzhuang temple, with a vision of “a cluster of pines and Huangs and several floors of Pavilions”. Even Sun Wukong could not see whether it was a temple or a temple. Until recently, we could not “see the lofty moral wind, and indeed we were indifferent to the immortal’s house”. Although Sun Wukong was once the great sage of Qi Tian, he knew nothing about Zhenyuan immortal. In the Wuzhuang Temple of zhenyuanzi, there is a pioneering spirit root ginseng fruit tree. Only 30 fruits are harvested every ten thousand years. As for the fruit, “if you smell it, you will live 360 years; if you eat it, you will live 47000 years.”

The great immortal has a prominent position. His disciples explained: “Sanqing is a friend of the master, the fourth emperor is the old friend of the master, Jiuyao is the younger generation of the master, and Yuanchen is the guest of the master.” Zhen Yuanzi only used the word “heaven and earth” to serve the incense. For this reason, his disciples also said: “these two words are acceptable in the upper part of the ceremony; the lower part can’t stand our incense. They were invented by our master.” Zhen Yuanzi is the ancestor of earth immortals. Therefore, respecting heaven and earth may be harmonious. His position in Taoism is equal to that of Yuqing, Shangqing and Taiqing, or at the level of “three Qing candidates”. Countless Sanxian came out of his door. There are still 48 disciples around him, all of whom are full of truth. There are gardens and vegetable gardens in his temple. When Sun Wukong steals ginseng fruit and sees the vegetable garden, he sneers: “he is also a Taoist who grows and eats himself.”.

3. Strength of Zhen Yuanzi

Zhenyuan Daxian is known as the ancestor of earth immortals and the Taoist name Zhenyuan Zi. Only worship heaven and earth, not God and Buddha. Like the Jade Emperor, Guanyin also gave him three points.

At the beginning of chaos, he was the disciple of Taoist Hongjun and the master of Yuanshi. He only wanted to keep the ginseng orchard, so he had to be “zhenyuanzi”. However, it is not as good as Bodhi. Zhen Yuanzi only heard about it under Hongjun’s seat. But Bodhi’s ancestor is actually a zhunti Taoist, one of the two masters of Western Buddhism. Hongjun’s disciple is one of the six saints, along with the Supreme Lord, Yuanshi Tianzun, Lingbao Tianzun, Nuwa and Amitabha Buddha.

Besides, the combat effectiveness is also very strong. Let’s look at this sentence: “there is no weapon in the hand, only one jade dust. In the fight with Sun Wukong, one jade dust can withstand the golden cudgel with the force of thousands of people. It only took two or three rounds. He exercised the magic of heaven and earth in his sleeve, and put the Tang Monk’s master and apprentice into his sleeve, even with their horses. His skill is really powerful.” It shows that he has a strong fighting capacity, but as we all know, the most powerful thing about Sun Wukong is not his fighting capacity, but his escape, escape and change. Therefore, it is not easy to be trapped.

In addition, the trinity of Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie and Sha monk besieged the Zhenyuan immortal, and the three division brothers were included in the “Qiankun sleeve” of the Zhenyuan immortal, which shows the high martial arts of the Zhenyuan immortal. You should know that Sun Wukong + pig Bajie + monk Sha = the strongest array in all circles of the world at that time. Sun Wukong was the most advanced “fighter” at that time. Pig Bajie was the “marshal” of the 100000 heavenly soldiers in the heavenly palace and led the infantry; Sha Seng used to be the “rolling curtain general” of 80000 naval commanders in the sky, and he fought in the Navy. Under such circumstances, the three human forces fought against the great immortal of Zhenyuan, which shows the strength of Zhenyuan.

If you want to talk about defense, the first point is that there is a couplet in front of the gate of zhenyuanzi, the immortal mansion, which is the same as the heaven. Ordinary monsters don’t dare to steal. What’s wrong with their poor defense? If Sun Wukong didn’t have Guanyin Bodhisattva as the backstage, he would have to bow down to Zhen Yuanzi and admit his mistake for the sake of Tang monk. Monsters without backstage have no courage to steal. No matter how important it is, life is not important.

In addition, the second point is that Taoist children are all scum on the premise that they do not become monsters. Taoist children in Wuzhuang temple are the same as most Taoist children before they become the king of gold and silver horn, the yellow robe monster and the Yellow eyebrow ancestor.
