Contents Preface 1 The divine root being conceived, the origin appears; The moral nature cultivated, the Great Dao is born. 2 Having fully awakened to Bodhi¿s wondrous truths, Cut M<a-macron>ra, return to the root, and fuse the primal spirit. 3 The Four Seas and the Thousand Mountains all bow to submit; From Ninefold Darkness ten species¿ names are removed. 4 Appointed as a Bima, how could he be content?; Named Equal to Heaven, he¿s still unpacified. 5 Disrupting the Peach Festival, the Great Sage steals elixir; With revolt in Heaven, many gods try to seize the fiend. 6 Guanyin, attending the banquet, inquires into the affair; The Little Sage, exerting his power, subdues the Great Sage. 7 From the Eight Trigrams Brazier the Great Sage escapes; Beneath the Five Phases Mountain, Mind Monkey is stilled. 8 Our Sovereign Buddha makes scriptures to impart ultimate bliss; Guanyin receives the decree to go up to Chang¿an. 9 Chen Guangrui, going to his post, meets disaster; Monk River Float, avenging his parents, repays their kindness. 10 The Old Dragon King, in foolish schemes, transgresses Heaven¿s decrees; Prime Minister Wei sends a letter to an official of the dead. 11 Having toured the Underworld, Taizong returns to life; Having presented melons and fruits, Liu Quan marries again. 12 The Tang emperor, firm in sincerity, convenes the Grand Mass; Guanyin, revealing herself, converts Gold Cicada. 13 In the Den of Tigers, the Gold Star brings deliverance; At Double-Fork Ridge, Boqin detains the monk. 14 Mind Monkey returns to the Right; The Six Robbers vanish from sight. 15 At Serpent Coil Mountain, the gods give secret protection; At Eagle Grief Stream, the Horse of the Will is reined. 16 At the Guanyin Hall the Tang monk escapes his ordeal; At the Gao Village the Great Sage disposes of the monster. 17 At Cloudy Paths Cave, Wukong takes in Bajie; At Pagoda Mountain, Tripitaka receives the Heart S<u-macron>tra. 18 Bajie fights fiercely at the Flowing-Sand River; Mok<s-subdot>a by order receives Wujing¿s submission. 19 Tripitaka does not forget his origin; The Four Sages test the priestly mind. 20 The dharma-body in primary cycle meets the force of the cart; The mind, righting monstrous deviates, crosses the spine-ridge pass. 21 At the Three Pure Ones Temple the Great Sage leaves his name; At the Car Slow Kingdom the Monkey King reveals his power. 22 Heresy flaunts its strength to mock orthodoxy; Mind Monkey shows his saintliness to slay the deviates. 23 The Chan Master, taking food, is demonically conceived; Yellow Hag brings water to dissolve the perverse pregnancy. 24 Dharma-nature, going west, reaches the Women Nation; Mind Monkey devises a plan to flee the fair sex. 25 Deviant form makes lustful play for Tripitaka Tang; Upright nature safeguards the uncorrupted self. 26 The true Pilgrim lays bare his woes at Mount Potalaka; The false Monkey King transcribes documents at Water-Curtain Cave. 27 Two Minds cause disturbance in the great cosmos; It¿s hard for one substance to reach Perfect Rest. 28 Priests are hard to destroy¿that¿s great awakening; The Dharma-king perfects the right, his body¿s naturalized. 29 Only when ape and horse are tamed will shells be cast; With merit and work perfected, they see the Real. 30 Nine times nine ends the count and M<a-macron>ra¿s all destroyed; The work of three times three done, the Dao reverts to its root. 31 They return to the Land of the East; The Five Sages attain immortality.
