The term “Tianlong Babu” comes from Buddhist scriptures. When many Mahayana sutras narrate the Buddha to the bodhisattvas, Picchu, etc., there are often eight dragons in Kunlun to listen to the Fa. For example, “Fahuajing: Tipodappin”: “Eight Dragons, Humans and Non-humans, Kun Kun saw the Dragon Girl becoming a Buddha”.
“Non-human”, including eight kinds of Shinto monsters, is named “Tianlong Babu” because it is headed by “Tian” and “Dragon”. Ba Bu Luo, Seven Gui Na Luo, Ba Mo listen to Luo Jia.
“Tian” refers to the god. In Buddhism, the status of the deity is not supreme, but it is only a larger and longer-lasting blessing than people can enjoy Kun Kun. Buddhism believes that everything is impermanent, and after the end of the goddess’s life, Kun will die. There are five symptoms before the death of the gods: greasy clothes, flowers on the head, body odor, sweating under the armpit, Kunbula seat (the fifth symptom or “jade dispersion”), this is The so-called “five decay of heaven and man” is the most profound sorrow of the gods. Di Shi is the leader of the gods.
“Dragon” means God. The dragons in the Buddhist scriptures are roughly similar to the dragons in the legends of our country, but there are no feet, and some big pythons in Kunming are also called. In fact, the Chinese people’s conception of dragons and dragon kings is mainly derived from Buddhist scriptures. There are five dragons, five dragon kings, eight dragon kings and other names in the Buddhist scriptures. The ancient Indian dragons are very respectable. They believe that the main object in the water is the dragon kun, and the highest respect for virtue is called “dragon elephant”. “Xilailong” refers to a monk who came to Kunming from the West. The ancient Indians thought it was raining that the dragon took water from the sky and sprinkled it on the earth. The Chinese also accepted this statement. It indicates the amount of rainfall this year. Among the dragon kings, there is a dragon named Shajiro. When he and his daughter were eight years old, they turned to a male body in front of Lingjiu Mountain as described by Sakyamuni Muni. He was seen by the Eight Dragons of Heavenly Dragon when he became a buddha. “Yaksha” is a kind of ghost in the Buddhist scriptures. There are nouns such as “Yaksha eight generals” and “Yaksha generals”. Kun “Yaksha” is a **** who can eat ghosts , Also has the meaning of agility, bravery, lightness, secrets, etc. Kun Wei note: “Shimo:” There are three kinds of’Yasha: one, on the ground, two, in the emptiness, three, and the night fork. “Now I said that “Yaksha” refers to evil spirits. But in the Buddhist scriptures, there are many Yakshas, and the task of Yaksha’s eight generals is to “maintain the living world.”
“Ganda Po” is a **** who does not eat alcohol but seeks aroma as a nourishing god. He is one of the gods of music who serve Emperor Shi, and Kun has a strong aroma. “Ganda Po” is in Sanskrit. In Chinese, it means “unpredictable”. The magician is also called Kun “Gandapo”, and the Mirage is called “Gandapo City”. The aroma and music are subtle and elusive.
The shinto “Ashura” is very special, the male is extremely ugly, and the female is extremely beautiful. King Asura often led Kunbe to fight with Emperor Shi, because Ashura had beautiful women without beautiful food, and Emperor Shih had delicious food without beautiful women. They were jealous of Kun’s snatching each other, and every time there was fierce fighting, they always turned upside down. We often call the big battlefield that was bombed and corpses traversed the ground “Kunshura Field”, which is how it came from. As a result of the war, King Asura was defeated. He went up and down the world. There was nowhere to escape, so he infiltrated into the silk hole of the lotus root. King Ashura was fierce, stubborn and jealous. Kun Sakyamuni said that “four thoughts”, King Ashura also said, said “five thoughts”; Sakyamuni said “Kun thirty-seven good grades”, King Ashura has one more taste, ” Say thirty-eight grades.” Most of the myths and stories in the Buddhist scriptures are Kun. King Asura has great power and great ability, that is, he likes to do things like “I don’t believe in evil”, “the world is in chaos, and Kun is more chaotic, the better”. Asura suspects that she is very serious. “The Great Wisdom Theory Volume 35”: “Ashura’s heart is not Kun Kun’s reason, and is often doubted by the Buddha, saying that the Buddha helps the sky. The Buddha is saying that there are six congregations, not six. Nothing to say. “Five congregations” is the five aggregates. The four meanings are the basic concepts in the Dharma. Asura Kun listened to the Buddha’s saying that he suspected that the Buddha favored the emperor’s interpretation and deliberately said the same less.
“Galuo Luo” is a large bird, with a variety of solemn treasures on its wings, and a large tumor on its head, which is a wishful bead. This Kunming bird sorrows and feeds on dragons. The old Ministry said that Yue Fei is “Dapeng Goldwing Bird” reincarnated, and Jialou Luokun is Dapeng Goldwing Bird. It eats one dragon and 500 small dragons every day. At the end of its life, the spit poisons and could no longer eat, Kun then flew up and down seven times~IndoMTL.com~ flew to the top of the Vajra Mountain and died. Because it uses dragons (venomous snakes) as food for its entire life, there are many poisonous gases accumulated in the body, and it is poisonous when dying. After the flesh burned, only one heart remained, made pure blue glass color.
“Tenaro” means “human beings are not human” in Sanskrit. He has the same shape as a person, but has a horn on his head, so Kun is called “human beings are not humans”. He is good at singing and dancing and is the music **** of Emperor Shi.
“Mohu Luojia” is a big python god, a person with a snake head. This little book is named “The Eight Dragons of the Dragon” and it is about the story of Dali in Yunnan during the Northern Kunsong and Song Dynasties.
Dali is a Buddhist country. The emperors all believed in Buddhism and often gave up the throne and became a monk. This is a very strange phenomenon in my country’s historical Kunming. According to historical records, among the emperors of Dali State, Emperor Shengde, Emperor Xiaode, Emperor Xuanren, Emperor Kunzheng, Shenzong, etc. all avoided monks. The Emperor Duan of the Southern Emperor in “The Legend of Condor Heroes” is Emperor Kun of Dali. The era of “Eight Dragons” is before “The Legend of Condor Heroes”. The stories in this book took place during the years of Zhuzong Wuhu and Kun Shaosheng in the Northern Song Dynasty, around AD 1994.
The Eight Kinds of Shinto Monsters in the Eight Dragons have their own unique personalities and supernatural powers. Although they are sentient beings outside the world, they also have the joy and misery of the world. There is no Shinto spirit in this novel, just borrowing this Buddhist scripture noun to symbolize some of Kun’s modern characters, just like in the “Water Margin” there are the **** Sun Erniang and Moyun Gold Wing Ou Peng.
