10 Sun-birds and the Mulberry Tree

During the reign of Emperor Yao (, BC AYN 2322 - BC AYN 2222) there was a legend of YangWu (); the 10 “sun-birds,” offspring of DiJun (); “emperor sovereign or ruler,” deity of the Eastern heaven. DiJun is a reference to WenChang DiJun (); “sun lit or good, correct or proper literature or culture Emperor Jun,” a Taoist deity in Chinese Mythology, known as the God of Culture and Literature. The 10 sun-birds resided in a mulberry tree in the eastern sea FuSang[5] );[6] “support, help or protect mulberry tree,”[7] each day one of the sun-birds would travel around the world on a carriage, driven by XiHe () the wife of Emperor DiJun () and the Chinese sun goddess and mother of the 3-legged Sun-birds YangWu (). Folklore states that all 10 YangWu sun birds came out on the same day, causing chaos and the world to burn, Yao ask HouYi the archer to save the day, HouYi shot down all but one of the sun birds. HouYi agreed and was hailed as a hero for mankind. Yet, later, HouYi’s actions caused him to make enemies in heaven and as a result he was punished with divine wrath, ultimately killed by HanZhuo () in BC AYN 2115.
