The Luck Dragon

Sunday, April 29, 2007


Here is another symbol for luck... Chinese Dragons.

The Chinese dragon is a symbol of wisdom, power, and luck in Chinese culture. Unlike Western dragons, oriental dragons are usually seen as benevolent and kind. Dragons have long been a symbol in Chinese folklore and art. Temples and shrines have been built to honor them.

Through the symbol of the dragon, many Chinese see divine attributes which they aspire to themselves. In fact, the Chinese are sometimes referred to as "descendents of the dragon." The dragon is held in reverence and respect in Chinese culture.

Chinese dragons control the rain, rivers, lakes, and sea. They can ward off wandering evil spirits, protect the innocent, and bestow safety unto all. They are called "lung" or "long" in the Chinese language.

I love dragons. I have a really cool one in my prosperity area. I also have a drawing of a really big one that I want to mosaic someday when I have the umpf for something like that. I wonder if they were ever "real".. it seems to me like the answer to that would have to be a yes, how else would we know so much about them?

I agree, I think dragons did exist! They aren't a whole lot different than dinosaurs, it seems. And they probably really did "breathe fire". That would be fun! (Although that also reminds me of that DQ commercial, where breathing fire was a problem for people.)

Some dragons are scary looking, some are pretty and some are cute. I must be in a song mood today - remember the kid's song, "Puff, the Magic Dragon"? I can still sing that whole song!!
