The most famous legend concerning the Mid-Autumn Festival:
We shared a glimpse of the belief. The detailed story of the legend of Changˈe goes like this…
Hou Yi was a brilliant archer by profession and the husband of Changˈe. As per the tale, long ago the 10 suns of space burnt all the plants and greenery on Earth. The living beings were dying. One fine day, Hou Yi picked his bow and arrows targeting the sun and shot nine of them. Life on earth was saved.
Hou Yi was gifted a bottle of elixir by the Queen Mother of the West, which was meant for immortality. The bottle was only for one person and so he asked his wife Changˈe to keep it safe with her as he wished to stay with Changˈe longer.
Hou Yi became prominent due to his success in winning over the 9 suns and got many followers as well as students. One of the students of Hou Yi, Pang Meng did not share good intentions as he had an eye on the bottle of elixir. Hou Yi went hunting one day with his students. Pang Meng excused himself from hunting with the excuse of his deliberate illness. He went to Hou Yi’s house and forced Changˈe for the bottle of elixir.
Changˈe knew she could not fight back Pang Meng and to stop Pang from his ill intentions, she drank the bottle of elixir herself. The potion she drank made Changˈe fly higher until she reached the moon. Hou Yi was very upset to know of this and since then, he prepared the food under the moonlight hoping for Changˈe’s return. The same tradition is being followed today by people who worship the moon (goddess Changˈe).
The lady in the moon – This is one of the most prominent tales associated with the Mid-Autumn Festival. There are many others that you will hear from the believers of the festival.
