English classes. I asked the students to tell me a well-known story from China, & they told me the story of the Monkey King, a mischievous supernatural creature who wound up achieving nirvana because he helped a monk on his journey to India to find the holy sutras. It's the story behind the movie Forbidden Kingdom, starring Jet Li & Jackie Chan.
I remember seeing the Monkey King story played out repeatedly on Vietnamese TV, but I didn't know what it was at the time. Now that I know the name of the story (Journey to the West), perhaps I can find the show online somewhere. Does anyone have suggestions on where to look?
