The Immortal Peaches

The Immortal Peaches (仙桃)


A Story in Simplified Chinese and Pinyin, 600 Word Vocabulary Level

Book 3 of the Journey To The West Series

By Jeff Pepper and Xiao Hui Wang

Sun Wukong, the Handsome Monkey King, is one of most famous characters in Chinese literature and culture.  His legendary bravery, his foolish mistakes, his sharp-tongued commentary and his yearning for immortality and spiritual knowledge have inspired hundreds of books, television shows, graphic novels, video games and films.

In this, the third book in the Journey to the West series, we wrap up the story of Sun Wukong’s early years, before he joins the monk Xuanzang’s little band of travelers and journeys to the West.  Once again the Monkey King’s unlimited ambitions and uncontrolled appetites land him in deep trouble.  He is given a job in heaven taking care of the Emperor’s Garden of Immortal Peaches, but he can’t stop himself from eating all the peaches.  He impersonates a great Immortal and crashes a party in Heaven, stealing the guests’ food and drink and barely escaping to his loyal troop of monkeys back on Earth.  And in the end, he battles an entire army of Immortals and men, and discovers that even calling himself the Great Sage Equal to Heaven does not make him equal to everyone in Heaven.

The story is written, as much as possible, using the 600 word vocabulary of HSK 3.  It is presented in simplified Chinese characters and pinyin, and includes an English version and complete glossary.  Additional study aids are on our website, www.imagin8press.com.

The Immortal Peaches

My dear child, all day you have been asking me to tell you about Sun Wukong, the Handsome Monkey King.  And all day I told you to wait until bedtime.  Well, now it’s bedtime, so I can tell you another story about the Monkey King and his time in Heaven and Earth.  Tonight I will tell you about some trouble he had with peaches!

I already told you that the Monkey King was born as a small stone monkey in the country of Aolai, on Flower Fruit Mountain.  He became king of the monkeys when he discovered a secret cave called Water Curtain Cave.  After that, all the monkeys on Flower Fruit Mountain lived in Water Curtain Cave, safe and happy.  But the Monkey King wanted to live forever, so he traveled far and studied with a great teacher who gave him the name Sun Wukong.  He learned the secret of immortality and how to use cloud somersaults to travel very fast and very far.  He also had a weapon, a golden rod.  He could make this rod very large for fighting or very small to put in his ear.

Sun Wukong was a very powerful monkey, so the Jade Emperor in Heaven did not want him to cause trouble.  So he invited Sun Wukong to live in heaven and be called ‘Great Sage Equal to Heaven’.  But Sun Wukong had no work to do.  So he made friends, ate tasty meals, and traveled all around Heaven enjoying himself.

Now the Jade Emperor was worried that Sun Wukong would cause trouble because he had no work to do.  So one day he called Sun Wukong to come see him.  Sun Wukong arrived but did not bow to the Emperor.  He just walked in and asked, “Great Emperor, what gift do you have for this old monkey?”

The Jade Emperor said, “I have no gift for you, but I have a job for you.  You will take care of the Garden of Immortal Peaches.  This is an important job.  Be careful every day!”

Sun Wukong liked this, and right away he ran to the Garden of Immortal Peaches.  He looked around.  The garden looked beautiful and smelled wonderful.  Everywhere he saw young beautiful trees with lovely flowers and fruits like large golden balls.

One of the garden workers, a local spirit, told Sun Wukong that the garden had 3600 peach trees.  In the front, one third of the trees has small peaches that take 3000 years to ripen, and if a person eats them he will become immortal.  In the middle, one third of the trees has sweet peaches that take 6000 years to ripen, and if a person eats them he will rise to Heaven and never grow old.  And in the back, one third of the trees has beautiful purple peaches that take 9000 years to ripen, and if a person eats them, they will live to be as old as Heaven, the Earth, the sun and the moon.

Sun Wukong fell in love with the garden.  He stopped traveling and stopped seeing his friends.  Every day he was in the garden.  One day he saw that some of the peaches were ripe.  He really wanted to eat one, but he could not, because the workers were in the garden and he didn’t want them to see him.  So he asked the workers to leave the garden.  Now he was all alone!  He climbed up a tree and ate one of the peaches.  It tasted very good.  He ate another.  He kept eating peaches until he was too full.

A few days later, the Queen Mother (that is, the Jade Emperor’s mother) decided to give a feast.  She wanted to have some immortal peaches in the feast.  She asked seven of her immortal maidens – Red Gown, Blue Gown, White Gown, Black Gown, Purple Gown, Yellow Gown and Green Gown – to gather some peaches for the feast.  The maidens went to the garden, but the local spirit told them to wait.  “This year is different from last year,” he said, “this year we have a new boss, the Great Sage Equal to Heaven. I must tell him that you are here.”

“Where is he?” they asked.

“In the garden.  He is tired and sleeping.”

“The Queen Mother told us to get peaches.  We must not be late.  We will go to see him now.”

The maidens and the local spirit went into the garden, but they could not find Sun Wukong.  He had eaten many peaches and was too full, so he made himself only two inches tall and fell asleep on a tree branch.

The maidens said, “The Queen Mother told us to get peaches.  So we will get peaches, with or without the Great Sage.”

They started to pick ripe peaches, but they could only find a few because Sun Wukong had eaten many of them.  The Blue Gown maiden found a good ripe peach and she pulled it off the branch.  The branch flew up and hit the Monkey King.  He fell to the ground.  Waking up, he instantly grew to full size. He pulled his golden rod out of his ear and it grew to the thickness of a rice bowl.  He shouted, “You monsters, where are you from, and why do you want to steal my peaches?”

The maidens were terrified, and said, “We are sorry, Great Sage!  We are not monsters.  We are just seven maidens, sent by the Queen Mother to get some immortal peaches for a great feast.  We know that this is your garden, but we searched and could not find you.  Please forgive us!”

Sun Wukong stopped being angry.  He thought about the great feast and he smiled.  “Thank you for inviting me to the feast!” he said.

The maidens didn’t understand what he meant.  They said, “We are sorry.  We heard the names of the guests but did not hear your name, so we don’t know if you are invited or not.”

“No problem,” he said.  “Old Monkey will find out if he is invited.  Stay here!”  Then he used his magic so the maidens could not move.  He did a cloud somersault and went to find the feast.  As he was traveling, he met a handsome young man traveling the same direction as he was.  He asked the man his name and where he was going.

“I am the Barefoot Immortal,” said the handsome young man, “and I am going to the feast of the peaches.”

“Oh,” said Sun Wukong, “you are going the wrong way!  This year the feast will be at the Palace of Light.  The Emperor told me to tell everyone.”

“I did not know that!”, said the Barefoot Immortal.  He turned around and went the other way, towards the Palace of Light.  Then Sun Wukong changed himself to look like the Barefoot Immortal.  He did another cloud somersault and arrived at the feast.

He was the first guest to arrive, but several workers were already there, preparing food.  Looking around, he saw a hundred different kinds of tasty dishes.  Then he smelled the aroma of wine.  Sun Wukong was hungry and thirsty again, and he really wanted to taste the food and drink the wine!  But he could not, because the other people would see him.  What could he do?  He used magic to make a cloud of insects.  The insects flew and bit all the people, and they fell asleep.

Now Sun Wukong was all alone with the tasty food and the good-smelling wine.  He ate until he was full, and he drank wine until he was very drunk.  Then he thought: “Bad monkey!  Bad monkey!  The guests will be here soon, and I will be in big trouble.  I must leave now!”

But things became even worse for Sun Wukong.  He was too drunk and could not find his way home.  Instead of going home, he found himself in the house of Laozi, the great medicine man.

“Oh well,” Sun Wukong thought, “I wanted to go home, but now I am here.  I always wanted to meet this Laozi.  This is a good time to meet him!”

But Laozi was not home.  He was out, teaching a class.  Sun Wukong walked through all the rooms of Laozi’s house, looking for him.  He did not find Laozi, but he found five bottles full of magic golden pills.  Laozi was planning to give these pills to the guests at the feast, to give them immortality.

What did Sun Wukong do?  Of course, he ate all the golden pills!  But now he was really afraid,  and he thought: “Bad!  Bad! I have brought big trouble on myself.  If the Jade Emperor hears about this, he will kill me!”  So he ran out of Laozi’s house and used the cloud somersault to return to his home in Flower Fruit Mountain.

The monkeys in Flower Fruit Mountain were very happy to see their King.  They said, “Great king, you have been gone for over a hundred years.  Where did you go and what were you doing?”

Sun Wukong was only in Heaven for a few months.  But a day in Heaven is the same as a year on Earth.

He said, “I am happy to tell you that the Jade Emperor gave me a very good job.  He gave me the job of ‘Great Sage Equal to Heaven’.  I took care of the Garden of Immortal Peaches.  I ate one of the peaches.  They tasted good so I ate a lot of them.  Then I went to a great feast, even though I was not invited, and I ate a lot of food and drank a lot of wine.  Then, drunk, I found myself in the house of the great Laozi, where I ate five bottles full of his golden pills.  After I ate the pills, I was afraid that the Jade Emperor would hear about this, so I quickly came home.”
