The dialog-like text has probably been compiled by Zeng Cans own disciples. In spite of its smallness, this text is the core of Confucian social thinking which gives every person a defined position in the social context. In the Confucianist's eyes, behaviour following ones own position assured the stability of the familiy, the society, and the state. Social disorder would end in chaos and war.

2001.046.005.369 Book The Investiture of the Gods (Fengshen yanyi ????; also called Fengshen bang ???) Attributed to Xu Zhonglin ??? (d. 1566) or to Lu Xixing ??? (d. 1601), this novel of the type of a historical romance is a great fantasy about the overthrow of the bad, depraved ruler Zhou ? of the Shang dynasty by king Wu of Zhou ???. The sources for this novel include oral and written material about Taoist heroes and gods, monsters and spirits that assist king Wu in subduing the bad ruler or help bad king Zhou to resist the heaven appointed rebel. Inspired by his fox-ghost concubine Daji ?? (not Danji!), king Zhou murders his loyal ministers and even his own son. After the downfall of Shang, the suicide of king Zhou and the exorcism of Daji by Jiang Ziya ???, king Wu enfeoffs all his followers with a part of the kingdom, creating the Zhou feudal system. The deceased and killed heroes (the "gods" of the title), even the enemies, are invested with a heavenly constellation. The novel is well-composed and organized in an endless sequence of battles between the heroes that are not only fighting with weapons but also with words, trying to persuade the opponent to follow the justified side. The monotony of the endless battles makes the book a quite boring lecture, even if the author tries to introduce unexpected elements like suddenly joining Taoist or even Buddhist heroes.[ The Investiture of the Gods

2001.046.005.401 Book Story of Mu Lian Chinese legend has it that a long time ago, there lived a young man, Mu Lian and his widowed mother. His mother was a wicked woman. She often turned away beggars who came to her door asking for food. She liked to jeer at the working poor and their dirty clothes; in essence, the only person she cared about was herself. Mu Lian on the other hand was a kind soul. He was a gentle person and always willing to help anybody who was in need. One day he decided to become a monk and this did not please his mother. She scowled at him for being such a useless son; she wanted him to go out and work to earn more money for her. Wealth and materialistic things meant more to her than anything else. When she saw that she could not dissuade her son, a plan began to hatch in her mind. She decided to play a trick on the monks just to get back at them for taking away her son. Now it was the custom to offer food to the monks (this custom still exists to this very day), but only vegetarian food. Mu Lian's mother thought that it was nonsensical that these monks did not eat meat, so one day she offered food to some monks and slipped in some non-vegetarian items. According to one version of the story, the wicked woman was punished immediately and was sent to hell. Mu Lian wanted to save his mother's soul because he knew her soul was suffering. He set out and ventured deep into the bowels of hell. Soon he came upon his mother and he saw that she was sitting a bed of very sharp pointy stakes and was holding on to a basin of blood. Mu Lian tried feeding her some food but the food would either turn into fire or blood. It was hopeless: he couldn't do anything for her so he left. He returned home and started to pray. It is said that Buddha heard Mu Lian's prayers and was touched by Mu Lian's compassion. Thus Buddha decreed that once a year, the gates of hell be opened so that the lost souls will be able to roam the earth and be fed. This is why every year on the seventh day of the seventh month in the lunar calendar, the Chinese celebrate the festival of the hungry ghost. This is one of five major festivals in the Chinese culture. Food and drink will be offered at night outside the gates of houses. This is so that the ghosts do not enter their houses and cause trouble. A traditional food made for this festival is steamed sweet bread. Lanterns are lit to help guide the ghosts to the feasts set out for them. Special paper money is also burned as offerings to these ghosts so that they can take it back to hell and spend it there. To make sure that these souls stay out of trouble, entertainment is set up round the clock, mainly Chinese operas performed on outdoor stages. Luo Bu Tiao Jing, vol. 4 Dan Zhu Tang Book Store

2001.046.005.410 Book Volumes 11,12,15, 17, 18, 19, 20 of this edition. The Three Kingdoms (Sanguo yanyi ????; also called Sanguo zhi yanyi ?????) This romance about the war between the three kingdoms Wei ?, Wu ? and Shu ? is said to be a writing by Luo Guanzhong ??? (1494), but it was probably already written during the Yuan dynasty. It developed from popular stories about the heroes of that historical period, their strategies, tactics and battles. Comparing the novel with the historical book Sanguo zhi (written during the Jin dynasty) and the Song time "Summary of the Comprehensive Mirror for Aid in Government" Zizhi tongjian gangmu ??????, we see that there is a great difference in judgment about justified rule. Contrasting to the historical book, where the ruler of Wei, Cao Cao ??, is seen as the legal ruler of all China, the later histories and the romance see him as an usurpator of the throne that has to be possessed by the Liu family, whose descendant Liu Bei ?? was ruling in Shu. Central figures in the novel are heroes like the wise tactician Zhuge Liang ???, Zhang Fei ?? or the red faced semi-god Guan Yu ??. Not describing in black and white, the novel judges nevertheless between the good side, the followes of Liu Bei, and their conterparts like Sun Quan ??, king of Wu, and the usurper Dong Zhuo ??.

2001.046.005.462 Book Ballad script In this popular account, the story opens with a herd boy named Niu Lang who is poor and has only one ox. One day the ox tells her master to go to a certain stream where he will see some heavenly fairies bathing. If he steals the clothes of one of them, the ox says, he will gain himself a bride, as she will be unable to fly away. One day the herd boy does as instructed. All of the maidens fly away except the one Chih-Nu, who was also called the weaver. Because she can?t do anything else, she follows the cowherd and becomes his wife. A few years went by, and the old cow, feeling it was about to die, said to its master, "When I am dead take off my skin and fill it with golden sand. Then take the ring from my nose and make it into a packet pouch. Carry it with you always and when you are in trouble it will help you." During the following years, the weaver bore the cowherd a son and a daughter. Often the weaver would ask her husband where he had hidden her fairy dress but he would never tell her. One night she pleaded so enchantingly that he told her--whereupon she quickly snatched the garment and flew up into the sky. The cowherd seized the children and flew up to heaven with the aid of the magic cowhide. The weaver's response was to take a golden hairpin and draw a long line to cut off the pursuit. This turned into a broad raging river. The cowherd poured the sand out of the hide into the river until if formed a big sandbank, which he was then able to cross. But the weaver again drew another long celestial river, which successfully impeded the cowherd who had used up all his sand. He then took the ring out of his packet and threw it at his wife; she threw her shuttle in return. Suddenly one of the lesser gods appeared and ordered them to make peace. They were to stay apart except for one night of the year. In this version the two stars that are visible behind the cowherd (Altair) and the weaver (Vega) are the ring and the shuttle. There are apparently so many versions of this story that you can pick and choose among the many subtexts and characters and just cut and paste and then spin them to your heart's content. However, the basic legend always concerns the weaving girl Chih-Nu and the herdboy Niu Lang, who fall in love and consequently neglect to do their work. The gods solve this problem by placing the River of Heaven (our Milky Way) between the two lovers with the provision that they will be able to see each other for at least one night of the year-the seventh day of the seventh month. On that day all the magpies on Earth fly up to heaven and form a bridge with their spread wings so that the lovers can cross the river to meet. Some variations of the legend say that the lovers were actually told that they could only meet once a month. This message is given to a magpie for delivery--but the magpie gets it wrong and tell them they can only meet once a year! (So it goes.) The Fable of the Seventh day of the Seventh Month.
