The Monkey King

Prologue

Story by Karen Elliott

The Monkey King 1. A magic stone sits on top of a mountain. The Sun warms the stone. It cracks open. A monkey jumps out. Rays of light shoot from his eyes. The Jade Emperor sees the light in Heaven. He says to his servant, "Go and find the light." The servant returns with news of the monkey. The Jade Emperor says, "A monkey is not important." Lord Lao Tzu also sees the golden rays of light in Heaven. He says, "The one who made this light will live forever." On earth Buddha sits with his students. The golden rays enter his temple. He says, "This monkey will become a Buddha someday. But first, he will make trouble."
