When Tang Sanzang heard this, he was puzzled and said, "This westbound road is not far from Wan Li. How can we do without horses? Wukong, you didn’t say how good your magical powers were in the past, but you let him eat our horses this time! "

July 3, 2024

The Monkey King said with a smile, "I’m trying to protect you, Master. That’s why that little loach took advantage. Hum, my old grandson must make him look good today. "
Say that finish, the Monkey King lifted the tiger skin skirt, carrying a gold hoop and iron bar, full of energy, drove Xiangyun on the water, and shouted, "Throw the loach, give me my horse, give me my horse!"
The dragon ate Sanzang’s white horse and crouched in the middle of the ravine to cultivate his spirit. I heard someone shouting abuse at Soma. He couldn’t hold back his anger. He jumped into the waves and jumped up and said, "Who dares to hurt me here?"
When the Monkey King saw him, he roared, "Don’t let the evil dragon go! Give me back my horse! " Turn the stick and hit the head. The dragon bared its teeth to catch it. The two of them fought at the edge of the ravine.
Coming and going, the dragon is weak and weak, where is the Monkey King’s opponent? In a moment, it was beaten by the Monkey King and there was no strength to fight back. The Monkey King applied strength to his hand, grabbed the dragon’s tendons and captured it.
Although the dragon was captured by the Monkey King, it still refused to give in, and roared loudly. the Monkey King was furious and raised his golden cudgel to beat him down. At this time, I heard from the air: "Wukong, wait."
When the Monkey King heard this, he stopped and followed the sound, only to find that Guanyin Bodhisattva had arrived. When the Monkey King saw that it was Guanyin Bodhisattva, he thought of the golden hoop on his head. Naturally, he had no good face. On the other hand, when Tang Sanzang saw the arrival of Guanyin Bodhisattva, he did not dare to neglect it. He quickly visited the shrine and said, "I have seen the Bodhisattva. I wonder why the Bodhisattva came?"
Ignoring the Monkey King, Guanyin Bodhisattva smiled at Tang Sanzang and said, "Sanzang, this evil dragon has some fate with you, but that’s why I came."
After saying that, Guanyin Bodhisattva lowered her cloud head and came to the dragon. She said to him, "You just swallowed Sanzang’s white horse and owe him a cause and effect. I wonder how you will pay him back?"
The white dragon said, "The white horse is in my belly. If you want it, I will spit it out and give it back to you."
Guanyin heard this: "Evil Dragon, evil dragon, don’t be rampant. I know your origin. You were the son of Aorun, the dragon king of the West Sea. Your father accused you of disobedience and was demoted to earth by heaven just for setting fire to the pearl in the temple. "
When the White Dragon heard Guanyin tell his origin, he knelt down and said, "The Bodhisattva has infinite power. I beg the Bodhisattva to point out a way for Xiaolong to return to the immortal way."
Guanyin said, "You ate Sanzang’s white horse today, which is also your chance. How did that Fanma from the east land win this Qian Shan? How to get to the Lingshan Buddha Land? You have to have a dragon horse to go there. As long as you are willing to worship Sanzang as a teacher, do your best with him, and go to the west to get the scriptures together, then you will repay your karma, and when you succeed, you will be rewarded with a golden body and a positive result. "
Hearing this, Bailong thought for a moment and knelt down and said, "Disciple is willing."
Guanyin heard this and nodded, "Great Goodness!" After that, a white light flew out of his hand and fell on the white dragon, blowing fairy breath and yelling, "Change!" The dragon turned into the horse he had eaten and stood in front of Sanzang.
At this time, Guanyin Bodhisattva said to Tang Sanzang, "Sanzang, congratulations on your new disciple."
Tang Sanzang heard this and said, "Thanks to the Bodhisattva!"
Guanyin Bodhisattva smiled, turned to the Monkey King and said, "Wukong, come here, I have something to say to you."
The Monkey King was dissatisfied with Guanyin Bodhisattva because of the golden hoop, so he turned a deaf ear to Guanyin Bodhisattva’s words.
Guanyin Bodhisattva was not angry when she knew that the Monkey King was doing this because of the gold hoop. She just smiled and said, "You Po Hou, if you don’t come here again, I’m going to recite that hoop spell!"
When the Monkey King heard that Guanyin was going to recite the incantation, he quickly apologized: "Don’t read, don’t read! I’m afraid you won’t make it! " Say that finish, then walked to the goddess of mercy. Just, the expression on his face, who saw all know that he is very reluctant.
Guanyin Bodhisattva naturally wouldn’t care about this with the Monkey King. When the Monkey King came over, she said to the Monkey King, "When you go to the west, you should do your best to protect Sanzang. There are many dangers along the way. Although there will be others joining in the future, everything depends on you. This is also an experience for you. These three life-saving hairs were given to you by the Buddha. If there is no one to help you, you can improvise and save your suffering. In addition, I promise you to call every day and the earth spirit. In the future, all the immortals in the Three Realms will help you if you need anything. "
Upon hearing this, the Monkey King was of course happy to learn that the Tathagata Buddha had given himself such a powerful avatar, and hurriedly thanked Guanyin Bodhisattva.
"Po Hou, you were so rude to me just now, but now you thank me." Guanyin bodhisattva criticised.
The Monkey King scratched his head and smiled awkwardly: "I was wrong just now, so be merciful, Bodhisattva. Say a hoop-loosening spell and remove the gold hoop from my head!"
"Wukong, I know you are very dissatisfied with this matter, but this golden hoop was cast for you by your teacher, but I don’t have the ability to take it off!" Guanyin Bodhisattva rumored to the Monkey King.
When the Monkey King heard the word teacher, his eyes flashed with joy, and he was about to ask Guanyin Bodhisattva what this was all about. I didn’t want to, but I saw Guanyin Bodhisattva make a silence to him. He nodded and whispered to Guanyin Bodhisattva, "Is the old man’s father all right?"
Guanyin nodded and continued to rumor to the Monkey King: "Wukong, I know what you are thinking, but I advise you not to. He won’t see you until you finish the great task of learning from the scriptures, and it’s no use going there. He gave you those three hairs just now, and he has high expectations for you! "
When the Monkey King heard this, he nodded and said, "Bodhisattva, I understand!"
"Good, good, Wukong will protect your master, and the poor monk will leave!" Guanyin Bodhisattva Road.
With that, Guanyin Bodhisattva drove away.
After watching Guanyin leave, the Monkey King said to Tang Sanzang, "Master, let’s start!"
Tang Sanzang smell speech, nodded his head. So Tang Sanzang got on the dragon horse, and the two of them continued to go west.
The master and the apprentice went on a five-or seven-day barren road again. It was getting late and they saw a village from a distance. Wukong looked at it and said, "Master, please go. You must be a good family in the village. You can stay overnight."
Tang Sanzang smiled and urged the white horse to come to the entrance of the village. He saw a young man wrapped in cotton cloth and wearing a blue coat. the Monkey King grabbed him and said, "Where are you going?" Let me ask you a message. What is this place? "
The man had no choice but to tell the truth: "I am Gao Taigong’s family and my name is Gao Cai. My squire has a daughter who is twenty years old and has never been matched. She was occupied by a demon three years ago. That demon has been a son-in-law for three years, and I’m not happy with it. I said that my daughter recruited a demon, which was not a long-term law, but ruined her family. Secondly, she didn’t have any in-laws and always wanted to return the demon. The goblin refused to retreat, and instead locked his daughter in his back house. It will be six months before she is released to meet her family. My grandfather gave me a few taels of silver to teach me to look for the mage and take the monster. I’ve never stopped these days, and I’ve invited three or four people back and forth, all poor monks and pustules, and I can’t get rid of that demon. Just now, he scolded me, saying that I couldn’t do anything, and gave me five pieces of money for travelling expenses, telling me to ask a good mage to surrender him again. "
The Monkey King was glad to hear that there was a monster insurrection, and said with a smile, "Your luck, I have a business, and you don’t have to travel far, so don’t waste money. We are not those poor monks and pustules, and we are used to taking demons. I’m sorry to bother you to go back and report to your master, saying that we are the holy monks sent by the royal brothers from the east to worship Buddha and seek scriptures in the west, and we are good at exorcising demons and binding monsters. "
In fact, the monster who made trouble here is Marshal Tianpeng who was deliberately demoted to the world on the orders of Zhun Ti. Marshal Tianpeng was demoted to earth and cast a pig fetus. Inspired by Guanyin Bodhisattva, he was named Zhu Wuneng, and he was waiting for the Buddhist scriptures. I waited for several years in a row, but I didn’t see the Buddhist scriptures coming. I don’t want to accidentally meet that miss Gao’s family one day and move my heart, which is why such a thing came into being.
So, everything developed according to the original Journey to the West. The Monkey King and Tang Sanzang, accompanied by Gao Cai, went to Gaos. Later, under the design of the Monkey King, after much tossing in the middle of the night, the pig Wuneng was captured by the Monkey King.
After some words, Zhu Wuneng told the Monkey King that he was inspired by Guanyin Bodhisattva and was waiting for the Buddhist scriptures. Hearing this, the Monkey King took him back to see Tang Sanzang.
When Tang Sanzang knew about it, he accepted Zhu Wuneng and named him Bajie.
After some thanks from Gao Taigong, the expanded Buddhist scriptures group went to the west again.
After leaving Gaolaozhuang, Tang Sanzang’s apprentices walked around for more than three months, and suddenly they saw a flood and surging waves. When Sanzang saw his heart, he was happy and said, "Disciple, look at the wide water ahead. Why don’t you see any boats walking?"
Pig Bajie saw it and said, "If it is outrageous, there is no boat to cross."
Wukong jumped in the air, put his hand on the awning and looked at it. "This water is really weird," he said with horror.
Tang Sanzang dismounted and walked around the river when he saw a stone tablet standing on the spot. He turned to the Monkey King and Pig and said, "There is a stone tablet here. I don’t know what it says."
The Monkey King and Pig Bajie looked forward and saw three seal characters on the table, which were Liusha River, and there were four lines of true characters on their bellies: 800 Liusha boundary and 3,000 weak water depth. Goose feathers can’t float, and reed flowers will sink at the bottom.
At this time, I only heard the surge like a mountain, and the waves rolled over the mountains. In the middle of the river, a demon was slippery, with a fluffy red flame and two round eyes as bright as lights. The face is neither black nor blue, like thunder or the sound of drums and dragons. Wearing a collar of goose yellow, the waist is double with white vines. There are nine skeletons hanging from the neck, holding a treasure stick. This monster is the shutter general who ate the reincarnation of Cicada IX.
As soon as the monster came out, it burst into a strong wind and went straight to Tang Sanzang. the Monkey King was so scared that he stood in front of the master. Pig put down his burden, took out his iron and palladium, and attacked the monster. The monster held it with a treasure stick, and the two of them fought in one place.
That monster is already inferior to the Monkey King and Pig Bajie, so how can he make them enemies together? After the three of you have come and I have gone through fifty tricks, the monster is to attack less and prevent more. After one hundred strokes, it was a big loss, and he was about to die under the joint efforts of the Monkey King and Pig Bajie.
"Wukong, Wuneng, wait and stop!" Suddenly, a voice said.
Three people smell speech, naturally stopped. I saw Guanyin Bodhisattva fall from the sky.
When Tang Sanzang saw Guanyin Bodhisattva, he immediately saluted and said hello. After some words, Guanyin Bodhisattva made clear her purpose.
As early as the fall of Guanyin Bodhisattva, the monster was fixed in place by Guanyin Bodhisattva. Guanyin Bodhisattva explained her purpose to Tang Sanzang’s master and apprentice, and said to the monster, "You killed the golden cicada nine times, but you owe it a cause and effect. Now you are willing to worship the golden cicada and protect him from going west, which is also a cause and effect."
The monster also knows Guanyin Bodhisattva, and he was originally a demon in order to blend in with this westward journey team. Now, after listening to the words of Guanyin Bodhisattva, where will I refuse?
Seeing his consent, Guanyin Bodhisattva untied the method of fixing him. When the monster came to Tang Sanzang, he knelt down and said, "My disciple was guilty in the past. Today, I would like to worship at the master’s door and protect him from going west to atone for his past sins. I still hope that the master will be completed. "
Tang Sanzang heard this and looked at Guanyin Bodhisattva. Seeing Guanyin nodded, he said, "Amitabha, put down the butcher’s knife and become a Buddha. Since you have the heart to do good, how can the poor monk refuse? "
When the monster heard this, he kowtowed to Tang Sanzang three times and said, "See Master, disciple."
Tang Sanzang said, "Since you are a Buddhist, you should be given a name for your teacher. After thinking about it, Tang Sanzang continued: "As a teacher, I will refer to the river as your surname, and give me a dharma name and call it Sha Wujing!"
Upon hearing this, the demon said, "Disciple thanks Master for giving me the name." Say that finish, then come forward to and the Monkey King and pig eight quit Jianli.
After all this, Guanyin Bodhisattva said to Sha Wujing, "Sha Wujing, get the necklace from your neck, so that we can help you and your disciples cross the river."
When Sha Wujing heard this, he took off the magic necklace that was hung around his neck and made of the skull of the reincarnation of Cicada IX. Handed it to Guanyin bodhisattva.
After Guanyin took it, she tied the nine skulls into nine palaces, threw them at the Liusha River, floated in the river, and put a gourd in it for Tang Sanzang to ride on.
