Hello, everyone. This is the little editor of China story network. Today I will tell you the story of journey to the west, pig Bajie. Welcome to pay attention.

Zhu Bajie’s flirtation with Chang’e is a naked conspiracy. It involves the overt and covert struggle between Western Buddhism and Eastern Tianting about power and influence.

Zhu Bajie is not only Marshal Tianpeng, but also an apprentice of the supreme Lao Jun. The evidence is the weapon in his hand, the nine tooth rake. About the origin of the nine tooth rake, Zhu Bajie said:

This is an ice iron for training God. It is polished into a bright working light. The old gentleman moved the hammer with his own seal, and Yinghuo added charcoal scraps himself.


It can be seen that the nine tooth rake was made by the supreme old gentleman himself, which shows that he is quite interested in this weapon. Why did Zhu Bajie get the weapon he made himself? The only reasonable explanation is that Lao Jun gave it to him. It seems that the relationship between Lao Jun and Zhu Bajie is very clear, that is, the relationship between master and apprentice. Only the weapons given by the master to the disciples are the most logical thing. This is just like the weapon given by the first emperor of the Yuan Dynasty to his disciples in the romance of gods.

After careful reasoning, as marshal Tianpeng and a disciple of the Supreme Lord Lao Jun, would Zhu Bajie make such a foolish move to flirt with Chang’e for no reason? Is he an idiot or a fool? Can you be Marshal Tianpeng if you are an idiot? Are you a fool? Will you accept him as a disciple? No! Then why did Zhu Bajie do something stupid to flirt with Chang’e? The answer is acting! It is a play jointly performed by the supreme Lao Jun, the Jade Emperor, Zhu Bajie and Chang’e. The purpose is to allow Zhu Bajie to enter the scripture learning team and wait for the opportunity to destroy and disintegrate the great cause of Scripture learning. It can be said that Zhu Bajie bears the secret mission entrusted by the high level of Taoism.


It was the decision of the Tang emperor lishimin for Tang monk to learn Buddhist scriptures from the West. As celestial Taoist immortals, they have no right to interfere, let alone stop them. People have humanity, and immortals have immortals, and they perform their respective duties. However, the eastern Tang Dynasty is, after all, the sphere of influence of Taoism in the world, and it accepts the incense of the world. All of a sudden, a Buddhist came out to share Taoist incense. This made the top Taoist officials very unhappy. It is the so-called “how can others snore on the side of the couch”.

Since it is not easy for Taoist officials such as the Supreme Lord and the Jade Emperor to directly interfere with the decisions of the emperors on earth, they would secretly obstruct and destroy it. That is why Zhu Bajie entered the scripture learning team. After this analysis, it is not difficult for us to understand why Zhu Bajie, who has high magic power, always makes efforts to spread negative energy all day and often mentions the act of breaking up.


Of course, Zhu Bajie finally failed to prevent Tang monk from obtaining the Scriptures, and it became a fact that he moved from the west to the East, but this does not mean that Zhu Bajie’s mission failed. Zhu Bajie finally succeeded in breaking into Buddhism and becoming the ears, eyes and undercover of the Supreme Lord Lao Jun. although he failed to become a Buddha, he also became a messenger of the clean altar. This is a great achievement.

It can be said that the essence of Zhu Bajie’s flirting with Chang’e is the product of the struggle between the forces of Buddhism and Taoism.
