Gong was arrogant

Posted by seshdotcom on May 31, 2009

After the people were Created by Nuwa the Peace didn’t exist in the Earth it was a Heated Encounter between Gong(The Water God) and Zurong(The Fire God)

Gong the water god pummeled the world with incessant
bouts of rain and floods. The deluges battered homes into
piles of rubbish, and they toppled ancient trees. Great
mountains crumbled and crashed into the swelling muddy
rivers. Gong showed no mercy as thousands of people and
animals perished on the soggy, bloated earth.
The other gods avoided Gong because his fury was so
intense. They watched silently as their moats, villages, and
temples were destroyed, one by one. Finally, Zurong, the
fire god, decided that Gong had gone too far. Zurong was
irritated by the other gods’ cowardice, and he did not
approve of his successor’s plans to reshape the earth into
water-heavy proportions.
So Zurong challenged Gong to regain control of the
earth. Gong gladly met his rival in combat. As the two
powerful forces wrestled each other across the firmament,
the sky shook with thunder, and lightning flashed across
the sky. For days, they grappled, wrestled, and pinned each
other higher and higher in the skies until they finally
cracked the dome of heaven.
When neither god could gain control, Gong challenged
Zurong to restage their battle on earth. Zurong gladly

Posted by seshdotcom on January 30, 2009

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.
