Pai Cow is a small, yellow cow-like cow that lives in the mountains of central China. Her name stems from the Chinese term,"Pai meaning low; chi meaning high". She's said to be the ancestor of the Mongolia Men's Uul, considered by some historians to be the first herd animal domesticated. The Pai Cow is considered sacred in the culture of Szechwan province in China. A special festival celebrating the olden times of the Pai tribe is celebrated in the spring when the cow is honored with offerings, songs and dances.
One story says that Pai lived with a herd of reindeer in the north of Mongolia. One day, the reindeer began to go missing and Pai started to search for them. She eventually found one in a deep crevice. Another reindeer came to see her and they ran off together. This was their last meeting.
먹튀검증사이트 Another version of the origin story says that Pai cowherds were tending reindeer and they cared for them until one night they lost their way. They came at the edge of a lake where a hippo had washed up. Hearing the cries of the frightened hippo, Pai jumped into the water to save her cows but forgot her knife.
The hippo bit into the Cow's flesh and pulled it as she cowered nearby. The frightened hippo bit off its leg so it could no longer walk and another reindeer tried to assist the injured hippo up but they too became fearful. Looking to save the cows, Pai paddled towards them but fell prey to the hippo's powerful bite. The other reindeer ran away while the Cow stumbled backwards.
Nobody knows for sure how Pai came to be. One account says that she was the daughter of the Emperor Kangxi and the mother of the Emperor Mingyao. Some historians believe that Pai was the daughter of Khaeko who married a Kung Lung and afterwards came to be known as Kema. Still others say that Pai was the daughter of an honoured Buddha and the title is taken from the Brahma temple in which Buddha attained Nirvana.
Pai had two brothers, Siau and Rhea. Siau became the first wife of Kema while Rhea was married to Tsoo who was the son of Nanda. The family lived in the Southern area of Manchuria, where there were many rivers and lakes. There are a number of monuments in the region which give some idea as to the lifestyle they practiced.
When I was researching my book The Gods of Amethyst, I found Pai's tomb at the temple near the Xingjian Pass. The tomb dates back to around 200 BC and contained the bones of Pai's age-old son. It is believed that the child was adopted or died of asphyxiation. No toys or articles were found in the grave. It is possible that this was the first Chinese Buddhist temple.
Legend has it that Pai had ten children but none survived to adulthood. She took her last child with her on a trip to the celestial abode but before she left him, she spread a white silk flower before her son begging him to eat it. This was the origin of this legend about the white silk flower. I have discovered that Pai cow is linked to the moon goddess because the moon reflects feminine power in Chinese belief.
Pai Cow coins are extremely popular today. They are quite pleasing to the eye given their distinctive round shape. Some have been made with an oblong shaped oblong coin at the middle and then encircling it's smaller circular motifs of animals, plants or geometric figures. These coins are usually easy to comprehend given their distinctive look.
They are usually encrusted with diamonds given its association with the moon goddess. A popular variety is the"Three Treasures" given to the child on his birthday. The motifs surrounding the cow would be the ears of a ram, a rainbow, a pot and a lampshade. The cow itself is adorned with little stars encircling its forehead.
Today the Pai Cow remains widely used by Chinese individuals especially during festive occasions like New Year's Day and Holidays. The intriguing history of this cow might be transferred from generation to generation. They are also used by some Chinatown restaurants. They are considered somewhat of a status symbol for the educated members of Chinese society.
