Myths and legends have been an important part of the spiritual wealth of mankind throughout history. They are a repository of the wisdom and imagination of our ancestors. Myths tell the stories of deities and heroes, of the origin of the universe l of how God controls the universe? how deities fight for it, the mysterious relationship between human and deities, as well as the extraordinary tales of bravery and courage of ancient heroes. According to these stories, God is the origin of human life; the significance of human existence lies in God; and human destiny is decided by God. Mythological stories touch upon a wide variety of fields such as ancient beliefs, morality, philosophy, science and history, representing a microcosm of ancient spiritual life. Every nation has its share of legends, and SO does China. There were three main nationality groups in ancient times-Huaxia(Han nationality), Dongy (Eastern Tribes) and Miaoman (Southern Tribes). Now, after thousands of year, these have given rise to a multiple Chinese nationality. Chinese mythology has evolved gradually with Han tales at the core, while absorbing part of the tales of the Eastern and Southern Tribes. China’s mythological history is quite different from that of Greece.
