The Tutor to chinese

The earliest myths involve the Ten Legendary Kings out of them Fushi is one of the most famous and Popular King who is well known for the magical tricks he did.

             After Nuwa created people it was Fushi who educated them certain things that made them effective against the Hazards in the world.Fushi 伏羲 was the first ruler of this magical period. Many scholars believe that his story is based on an actual monarch(Monarch:Nations Ruler or say an head of an State) who lived sometime between 2953–2736 B.C.His notable contribution to the chinese were he taught people the survival skills these include These include using fire, fishing,hunting, writing, and fortune-telling.In some of the articles I read Fushi was described as the one having a human body in some of the other articles and myths about chinese mythology he was described similar to Nuwa having a Human Head and a Body of a snake.

 He is famous for the invention of Trigrams:

                       Fushi is credited with  introducing the trigrams, which are patterns made with short and long sticks. People threw down six sticks and then interpreted the patterns they formed. In the beginning, the interpretations of the trigrams were passed down orally and after that ir was writen down after many many years.Fushi is credited with introducing writing,which was was invented to improve upon the ancient tally system of tying knots. However, its creation has also been attributed to T’sang Chieh, a palace record keeper who lived around 2 and a thousand years Before Christ.

Fushi also taught many other things to people I will Update further things about Fushi once I am done with amassing information.

Powerful Godess of CHinese

Powerful Godess of CHinese

We all know Panku Created the people according to Chinese Mythology and then what happened  how did the people came into existence????it was because of Nuwa- – ->The Creator of People(Human Beings)was a female goddess named Nuwa.It was also said the the Nuwa was Mentioned in some of the early works in chinese like- – ->”A Classic of History” and “A Classic of Mountain and Seas”.

 

                                  Many images of Nuwa have been uncovered on ancient Chinese bronze sculptures and paintings by the Archeology Crew. Like many of the early Chinese gods(Nuwa did not have a full human form), Nuwa was half animal, half divine. Most often, Nuwa had the face and arms of a human but the body of a snake or dragon. She could change her shape at will to a shape of a tree or like a small ant or like a Bird. But many of the Chinese Mythical works have Nuwa as a Beautiful woman.In the chinese mythology you cannot find more female Godess- – – ->But eventhough there were less female Godess when compared to male Gods Yuma was an Outmatch(She was one of the Powerful God taken on the whole—–>More Powerful than many of the Male Gods)According to the chinese Belief She creates mankind and is responsible for repairing the earth.

Chinese Mythology—->How was the new World Created

Posted by seshdotcom on January 25, 2009

                           Hey to People who have been visiting my weblog for the past 5 months I am going to start write about a Completely new topic or say a new section to me but I have collecting matters and writing things in a small paper thinking of how I should write.For the past 2 months I had a Great interest on writing this one so lets see what I have for you

Panku the Creator of the World

 We  know that each Mythology has something called an Creator and in chinese mythology the Creator of world is called PANKU盘古-Once, the world was a mass of swirling(Twisting or say Spinning )with darkness. There was no heaven. There was no earth. All the forces of the universe were trapped inside a small egg, tumbling and spinning in utter chaos.And inside that egg there was a there was a tiny creature called Panku.And it was said that for 18000 years Panku Slept inside the egg and as days passed Panku and Egg grew and Panku became a Muscular Giant whose body length was about ninety thousand li(Li- The Chinese measure of Half a Kilometre).One day when the universe was especially unstable, Panku woke up. All around, he saw nothing but darkness and confusion. At first, he became curious by the irregular rhythms of the world and at one point he became tired of all the confusion and Whirling of particles  that happened and he decided that he has to do something.–>He picked it up like an ax and swung it down with every ounce of his strength. It crashed upon the exact center of the egg with a huge sonic boom. The sound reverberated throughout the world and split all the particles and gases of the universe in two and he was very happy since a very new world and environment was created but the sad part of Panku’s Story is as days passed he became Older and weaker and each and every Part of his body became one of the Parts in the Universe his teeth and bone Parts became as Solid and Precious Metals(It was said that Panku’s teeth became as a Gold,Silver etc.,)and his Hair became a the roots and Branches of the trees,his blood trickled over the land to create large pools and swift rivers.

And with that Panku was believed to have been died.
