Hello, everyone. This is the editor of China story network. Today I’ll tell you the story of Monk Tang. Welcome to pay attention.

After watching the TV series version of journey to the west, you may think that Tang monk came to a temple called Jinshan Temple after his mother put him into the water basin and let him float away downstream. A monk picked him up and brought him back to the temple to raise him. After growing up, Tang Monk knew his life experience and came back to avenge his father and save his mother. But in fact, if you really want to say who raised Tang monk, it’s really not this faming monk. Who is it?


This point needs to find the answer from the original work. It is written in the book that the father of Tang Monk Chen Guangrui was hit by the hydrangea of the prime minister’s daughter Yin Wenjiao after he was the No.1 scholar in high school, and the two married. Later, when Chen Guangrui took his family to the place of appointment, he was killed by the water thief Liu Hong on the ship. Liu Hong seized Yin Wenjiao, took Chen Guangrui’s name, and pretended to be him to go to the post. Later, Yin Wenjiao gave birth to Chen Guangrui’s son, but put him into the basin and floated away with the water.

However, Yin Wenjiao stuffed a blood letter into the baby’s swaddling clothes, which wrote the Tang Monk’s life experience and his own experience, as well as a T-shirt, which can be used as a keepsake to meet in the future. In the TV series, Tang Seng has been growing up in the temple since he was a child, and he also exchanged his firewood for a fish in the hand of a fisherman he met on the road, took it back to the water and set it free. Many people should still be impressed by this plot, which also shows that Tang Seng grew up in Jinshan Temple from an early age.

But this is not the case in the original. According to the original text, the elder of Jinshan Temple hurriedly saved the baby after seeing him sleeping on the wooden board. This is the same. He saw the blood book in the baby’s arms and learned his life experience, but then gave him a nickname, Jiang liuer, which is the same as the name of the little monk in the return of the great sage. But after that, the elder did not take him back to the temple, but found someone else to raise him.

When he was eighteen years old, the elder let him shave his hair and practice, and named him Xuanzang. After that, Tang Monk begged the elder to tell him his life experience. Then he handed over the hidden blood book and T-shirt to Tang monk. Then Tang Monk returned to his mother, denounced Liu Hong and brought him to justice. Finally, he rescued his mother, and learned that his father was saved by the Dragon King and did not die. The family was happy to reunite. Therefore, the person who really raised Tang monk is not the faming monk of Jinshan Temple at all.


However, despite this, monk faming is still a very important role. We know that monk Tang’s life is actually under the control of the Buddha. As a Buddhist, how could the Buddha let him die easily? And why did monk Tang not float anywhere, but came to Jinshan Temple? Although it’s hard to say what the relationship between monk faming and Fahai is, at least it shows that Jinshan Temple is a very famous temple, so all this can be said to be a story that has been written long ago.
