Landscape of Jiulianshan--Red Bean Water Playing

Water-soluble stalactites resemble Wolong, from which springs flow and fall down cliff slopes into pools at the bottom of ditches. Next to it, a yew stoops and looks up all the year round, accompanied by flowing water. Legend has it that Bailong lies here because of illness. He sees red beans floating in the pool, probes the water with his head, plays with red beans, drinks a few mouthfuls of pool water, gets rid of his illness immediately, rides the clouds and leaves a mark of lying down. Spring water flows down along the mark. Red beans fall into the water from time to time and come into the pool with the water, so they are called "red beans playing with water". It is said that drinking water flowing by yew can cure many kinds of persistent diseases.

Myths and legends

Legend has it that there is a pool of lotus flowers in Yujing, Xuandu, a fairy in the Yuan Dynasty. There is a fairy who serves lotus every day. She is like a sister to lotus. The Fairies in Yujing call her lotus fairy.

On this day, Yuanshi Tianzun was sitting in silence. Taiyi relief emperor rushed to say that there was a drought in the southern part of Taihang Mountains, three years of rain did not fall, and the spring water in the mountains could not flow out; the people were not enough to eat, wear warm clothes, help the old and bring the young, flee famine and beg for food, and suffered terribly.

After the first day of the Yuan Dynasty, he immediately issued an order and sent people down to Nantaihang. Just then, Lotus Fairy Aunt came and said to Yuan Shitianzhong that she was willing to go down to Nantaihang to help the people affected by the disaster.

Yuanshitian honoured the request of Lotus Fairy Gu, and said to Lotus Fairy Gu, "Fairy Gu goes to pick a blooming lotus flower, plucks two lotus leaves, holds lotus flowers and treads lotus leaves, soars and travels thousands of miles in the day. When Xiangyun appears, she breaks nine petals and spreads them to the earth. Where she falls is in the practice of Fairy Gu's foot in Nantaihang, please do painstaking protection there." Bless all sentient beings."

The lotus fairy aunt, at the command of Yuan Shitianzhong, stepped on the lotus leaves and gently floated away from Yujing, the capital of Xuandu; a breeze came, whirring in her ears and falling to the ground.

Suddenly, a red cloud surrounded the lotus fairy, who pinched down nine petals and threw them down.

Nine lotus petals fall in the South Taihang Mountains. In the blink of an eye, where the petals fall, nine peaks protrude.

The lotus fairy landed on a flat ground in the middle of the nine peaks. She scattered the lotus flowers around her hands. Later, it became a lotus pond. Two lotus leaves on the feet of Lotus Fairy Gu drifted eastward in the wind, drifting across the deep valley and landing successively.

Lotus fairy aunt looked around. There was a cave on the cliff. She climbed into the cave and practiced magic here to help the people.

It rained heavily first. After a period of time, disasters disappeared downhill and downhill. The weather was smooth and the people began to smile.

After a while, the people knew that there was a fairy aunt in the mountains, who preached magic, rescued suffering and blessed peace. They went up to the mountains one after another to thank the fairy aunt, and the other to ask the fairy aunt to bless her for disaster relief and safety.

People come and go, day after day, gradually people know that the nine peaks here are changed from lotus petals. They call it Jiulianshan, and the flat land in Jiulianshan is called Jiuliantai.

After a few years, someone lived here, called Xilian. The two lotus leaves fell to the ground, but also some people live, one called Donglian, one called Zhonglian.

The Nine Lotus Fairy Aunt is the Old Mother of Nine Lotus

The lotus fairy aunt stayed in Jiulianshan for more than ten years. The beautiful scenery and the good people made her unwilling to return to Yujing, the capital of Xuanxue. In order to make the lotus fairy aunt practise calmly, Yuan Shitianzhong did not recall the lotus fairy aunt, but added a solemn decree that only asceticism was allowed and marriage was forbidden.

The lotus fairy nun practiced hard and blessed the people with peace. She was respected by the people of Nantaihang. Her fame grew stronger and her reputation spread farther and farther.

I do not know how many years later, the lotus fairy aunt repaired Zhenggu did not know where to go, and came to Jiulianshan to preach at intervals. As the number of worshippers increased, she was renamed Old Mother Jiulian.

Later, Xilian, Zhonglian and Donglian built temples and worshipped Jiulian's mother in them. People from all sides, in groups, went to Jiulianshan to worship Jiulianshan Mother. The incense was very strong.
