Description

In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order,but the pheonix can fly only when its feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again,as endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of Heaven, the moisture of the Earth, the powers of the sun and the moon all worked upon a certain rock, old as creation, and it became magically fertile. That first egg was named 'Thought'. Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha,said ,"With our thoughts,we make the world". Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey. The nature of Monkey was irrepressible.!! 

These were the words that started each episode of this weird but great Japanese fantasy series. It is based on an epic Chinese story from the 16th Century, called Hsi Yu Chi. Primal chaos ruled the worlds before Monkey. Monkey was born of time, of Heaven and Earth, sun and moon, out of a stone egg. He was irrepressible! The place was like ancient China and the time might have been a thousand years ago. They fought and they though then, as now. Holy Tripitaka prayed . One disciple, Sandy, is a fish-spirit. Pigsy, expelled from Heaven for greed, is a spirit of a pig. He is changing. Everything changes. There is a horse, once a dragon, now evolving into human form. Monkey, Horse, Sandy, Pigsy and Tripitaka are all upon a journey as long as life.
