It relates the amazing adventures of the priest San-zang as he travels
west in search of
Buddhist sutras with his three disciples, the irreverent and capable Monkey, greedy Pig, and Friar Sandy.
A monkey born from a stone nourished by the Five Elements, who learns the art of the Tao,
72 polymorphic transformations, combat, and secrets of immortality, and through guile
and force makes a name for himself as the Qítiān Dàshèng or "Great Sage Equal to Heaven".
Dismayed that "the land of the South knows only greed, hedonism, promiscuity, and sins",
the Buddha instructs the bodhisattva Guānyīn to search Táng China for someone to take
the Buddhist sutras of "transcendence and persuasion for good will" back to the East.
The Guanyin enlightens Chen Xuan-zang to let him go to the west.
The Emperor Taizong takes Xuanzang as his younger brother, and grants him the name "San Zang".
Tang-zang saves Sun Wu-kong from the mountain, and Sun Wu-kong is given a Jin Gu(wore in the head) by Guanyin.
They vanquish demons and monsters, tramp over the Fiery Mountain, cross the Milky Way,
and after overcoming many dangers, finally arrive at their destination - the Thunder
Monastery in the Western Heaven - and find the Sutra.
