The Rise Of The Monkey King

The Rise Of The Monkey King  (猴王的诞生)

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

Book 1 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.

The full story of Sun Wukong’s adventures is told in Journey To The West (西游记, xī yóu jì), an epic 2,000 page novel written in the 16th Century by Wu Cheng’en.  Journey To The West is probably the most famous and best-loved novel in China and is considered one of the four great classical novels of Chinese literature.  Its place in Chinese literature is roughly comparable to Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey in Western literature.  Wikipedia sums up the book’s role perfectly, saying “Enduringly popular, the tale is at once a comic adventure story, a humorous satire of Chinese bureaucracy, a spring of spiritual insight, and an extended allegory in which the group of pilgrims journeys towards enlightenment by the power and virtue of cooperation.”

Journey To The West is a very, very long story, consisting of a hundred chapters.  It is loosely based on an actual journey by the Buddhist monk Xuanzang who traveled from the Chinese city of Chang’an westward to India in 629 A.D. and returned 17 years later with priceless knowledge and texts of Buddhism.  Over the course of the book Xuanzang and his companions face the 81 tribulations that Xuanzang had to endure to attain Buddhahood.

Our little book, The Rise of the Monkey King, covers the events in the first two chapters of this epic story.  We learn how the little stone monkey is born, becomes king of his troop of monkeys, leaves his home to pursue enlightenment, receives the name Sun Wukong (literally, “ape seeking the void”) from his teacher, and returns home to defend his subjects from a ravenous monster.  Future books in this series will tell more stories from the life of this famous monkey and his companions.

Because of this story’s importance in Chinese culture, we’ve made every effort to remain faithful to the original while retelling it in simple language suitable for beginning Chinese learners at the HSK 3 level.  We have tried to not add or change anything, though of course we’ve had to leave out a lot of detail.  Wherever we had to use a word or phrase not contained in the 600-word HSK 3 vocabulary (which for example does not include the word “monkey”!) or that has not entered common usage since the HSK lists were created, those new words are defined in footnotes on the page where they first appear.  New compound (multi-character) words and expressions are, whenever possible, chosen so that they use characters already in HSK 3.  An English version of the story is included for reference at the end, as well as a complete glossary.

In the main body of the book, each page of Chinese characters is matched with a facing page of pinyin.  This is unusual for Chinese novels but we feel it’s important.  By including the pinyin, the English version and the glossary, we hope that every reader, no matter what level of mastery they have of the Chinese language, will be able to understand and enjoy the story we tell here.

Excerpt from “Rise of the Monkey King” (English Version).  The complete English  text is included in the book.

My dear child, I know that the hour is late.  You’ve been playing all day and you are tired, and now it is bedtime.  But you say you want to hear a story before you sleep.  So now I will tell you an old story about a monkey.  He was very strong and very smart, but sometimes he was also very naughty.  He needed to learn about love and helping others.

This monkey lived a thousand years ago in northern China.  He had many names during his long life, but most people know him as Sun Wukong.

People tell many stories about Sun Wukong.  If I told you all those stories, I would have to talk for many days!  So tonight I will just tell you a little bit about his birth and how he became a great king.

In the beginning, when the Earth was young, the gods in Heaven made four continents: the Eastern Continent, the Western Continent, the Southern Continent, and the Northern Continent.  The Eastern Continent had a country called Aolai, near a great ocean.  In the middle of the ocean was a great mountain that stood in the sea like a king in his palace.  It was called Flower Fruit Mountain.  Around the mountain was a beautiful forest.  In the forest were birds, animals, green grasses, beautiful flowers, and tall fruit trees.  A hundred rivers came out of the mountain and flowed to the ocean.

At the top of the mountain sat a very large stone.  This stone was as tall as six tall men.  Three large men could not encircle it.  The stone was made at the same time as the Earth.  For a million years it was fed by seeds of Heaven and Earth.  Finally, after a million years, the rock became pregnant.  The stone opened and a stone egg came out.  The wind blew over it, the egg cracked open, and a small stone monkey walked out.

This monkey was small but he was not a baby monkey.  He was like an adult monkey.  Every day the little stone monkey played and climbed and ran.  All the animals were his friends.

One day the monkey opened his eyes.  Two beams of light came out of his eyes and went straight to Heaven.  In Heaven the great Jade Emperor saw the beams of light.  The people in the palace saw this and were worried.  But the Emperor did not worry because he knew that they came from the stone monkey.  He smiled and said, “These beams come from a monkey who was born of Heaven and Earth.  Don’t worry.”

The stone monkey lived happily in Flower Fruit Mountain.  He played with all the animals who lived in the mountain.  For many years he lived an easy life playing with his animal friends.

One day the weather was very hot.  The stone monkey was playing in the cold river with his monkey friends.  They used small stones to make houses under the water.  When they were tired, they swam and washed in the river, and rested on the shore.

One of the monkeys said, “We do not know where this river comes from.  Today we have nothing to do.  Let’s go and find out!”

They walked along the river up the mountain, climbing on rocks, calling to their friends, laughing and playing.  After many hours they saw a great waterfall.  They sat and watched the waterfall for a long time.  In the daytime it looked like a rainbow.  In the moonlight it glowed like fire.  The nearby green trees drank its cold water.

All the monkeys shouted and clapped their hands.  They said, “Marvelous water!  Marvelous water!  Who can go into the river and see behind the waterfall?  He will be our king!”

The stone monkey heard, and he jumped up, shouting “I will go!  I will go!”  Dear monkey!  He closed his eyes and jumped into the waterfall.

Behind the waterfall there was no water.  There was just a large room with an iron bridge.  He saw that the water flowed under the bridge to the top of the waterfall.

He looked around.  He saw that he was in a beautiful cave.  It looked like a cozy house, with stone beds, stone chairs, stone bottles, and stone cups.  In the cave were many green trees.  The stone monkey was very happy.  He wanted to tell his friends.  So he closed his eyes and jumped through the water and out of the cave.

The monkeys saw him.  They asked, “What did you see?”  The stone monkey said, “A beautiful place.  No water.  Just a large comfortable room with a bridge, and stone beds, stone chairs, stone cups, and stone bottles.  We can live there.  Let’s call it the Water Curtain Cave.  Come with me and see!”

“OK,” said his friends happily, “you go in first.”  The stone monkey shouted, “Follow me!”

After all the monkeys were in the room, the stone monkey stood up.  He said, ”You all said that the monkey who finds this place will be your king.  Now make me your king.”  So each monkey bowed to the stone monkey and said, “You are now my king.”

From that day onward, the stone monkey was the king of all the monkeys.  He took a new name, Handsome Monkey King.  But we will just call him the Monkey King.

The Monkey King and his friends lived in the Water Curtain Cave for a very long time, three or four centuries. Every day they played on the mountain.  Every night they slept in the cave.  They were all very happy.

One day, while eating, the Monkey King became sad and cried a few tears.  The other monkeys asked, “What’s wrong?”  The Monkey King said, “I am happy now, but I am worried about the days to come.”  The other monkeys laughed, “You should be happy.  We have a wonderful life.  We have food, we are safe, we are comfortable.  Don’t be sad!”

The Monkey King said, “Yes, we are happy today.  But later we must still meet Yama, the King of the Underworld.  If we will die later, how can we be happy today?”  Then all the monkeys began to think about death, and they all began to cry.

Then one monkey jumped up and cried, “Great Monkey King, do you know, holy sages will never meet Yama, because they live as long as Heaven and Earth.”

The Monkey King said, “I did not know that.  Where do the holy sages live?”

“They live in ancient caves, but I do not know where.”

“No problem.  Tomorrow I will go down the mountain and find holy sages.  I will learn to be young forever and never meet the King of the Underworld.”

All the monkeys clapped their hands and shouted, “Wonderful!  Wonderful!  Tomorrow we will find lots of fruit, and before you go we will give you a great feast.”

The next day the monkeys found many kinds of fruit and flowers.  They put the fruit and flowers on the stone tables, they drank from the stone cups, and had a feast.  They danced together, and sang about how wonderful it was to be a mountain monkey.  For a full day they ate, drank, sang and danced.  They all gave gifts to the Monkey King.  Afterwards, they slept.
