Chapter excerpt

The dragon is not exist in reality. In the ancient Yue people deep in the heart, it is not a fixed idol of Chongxin like Zhejiang, as the original belief of "Long Sheng". Chinese more rural remains a "Longsheng" praying for rain in Chongxin dragon, the "dragon saint" and scholars generally think differently, often only some ordinary water, and even insects. And the Senate of ancient literature, by the fact that, in China ancestors heart, have unified the idea of dragon, the image is not unified dragon. This has no shape, no fixed nature of the dragon, dragon is the archetype of Chinese. The so-called "Dragon Emperor", is more rural and rain is a live long prayer ceremony. The reality is more common in rural small animal with water biology, as the dragon in the rain consciousness in the role, be prostrate oneself in worship. Mention of dragon in the China,, no one seems to not know. For its looks, it seems not. Since the Tang and Song Dynasties, especially since the Ming and Qing Dynasty, because of the influence of the feudal rulers thought, the Imperial Palace, clothing, that "the dragon, the horns of a deer, a head like a camel, eyes like rabbits, items like a snake, belly like clam, the scales of a carp, the claws of a hawk, the palm of a tiger, ears like cattle" yellow Jinlong, often from now people's eyes, familiar people. But from a historical point of Chinese dragon image, the image is actually a budding, Tang after gradually formed, the middle India dragon -- Naga -- literal translation for the penetration and influence the image of the king. ② in folk rice farmers more in mind, the dragon is only a form of dragon show. In their holy worshiping rainmakers, existing form is varied, such as eel, snakes, frogs, toads, turtles, fish, shrimp, crab and so on. This has since the ancient times, the Dragon contained in traditional literature, be quite different. For in the habit of articles, research on Dragon scholars also have never even heard of it, I'm afraid. Diversity of dragon image of the prototype, many scholars have already noticed, and there have been many this exposition. More and more farmers rain prayer worship of dragon like Saint various forms, it goes without saying, unknown, but its appearance, more difficult, and we common peopleIn the eyes of the dragon image what association.
