This is a two-part presentation of slides, telling and illustrating the Chinese Buddhist legend of 'Journey to the west'. 'Part 1: the adventures of Monkey' introduces the main character, Monkey, and the folk story outlines how his character evolves, becoming boastful and mischievous. 'Part 2: preparing for the great journey' continues from part 1 and introduces the other characters and the part they played in the ancient pilgrimage from China to India. The last slide provides factual information about the influence of the folk story on the establishment of Buddhism in China.
