According to tradition, China's history dates back to 3000 ncE,* although modern historians only go back to 1600 sct. A clal' r'essel from about 2000 scs is decorated rvith a dragon picture. The dragon symbol and figure still exist in modern-day Chinese art and celebrations.

The Chinese divided their dragons into
groups or classes, each with different characteristics. There rvere four major Lung Wang dragons, or Dragon-Kings. The names of these brothers rr'ere Ao Kuang, Ao Jun, Ao Shun, and Ao Ch'in.

The Lung Wang, or Dragon Kings, resembied the Indian Nagas, or sacred serpents. They were the patron deities of rivers, lakes, seas, and rain. They had valuable pearls in their throats and lived in Ski

magnificent underwater Palaces. Further divisions produced the kiao-lung, or scaled dragon; ying-lung with wings k'iulungwrth horns; ch'i-lungwhich was hornless; the p'an-Iurzgwhich was earth-bound.

occur, it was known because of great meteor showviolent thunderstorms, and great showers of hail. The number of scales on a dragon was also of importance. Some ancient dragon experts in China maintained that a true dragon has exactly B I scales, while others stated that the number was 117. They were never said to be covered with anything except scales. This is a characteristic of dragons worldwide. Chinese dragons rvere said to have the head of a camel, horns of a stag, eyes of a demon, neck of a snake, scales of a carp, claws of an eagle, feet of a tiger, and ears of a cow. Although, as one can see from ancient pictures, all Orientai dragons did not fit conveniently into this description, ther-all rvere said to have a lump on the top of the head. This lump enabled them to fly without wings. Although this flying-lump \\'as considered an essential part of Oriental dragons, it is rare to see it portrar-ed in pictures. Oriental dragons could chanse their forms by intense concentration or when extremely angr\'. -{11 dragons are said to have the ability to take on human form. One can see reasons behind a draconic being passing as a human; draeons are intensely curious about all things and may wish to directlr- erperience human life from time to time. It is a possibility that, while in such a form, a dragon could contact a human and establish a line of communication that could be continued after the dragon resumed its orr n form. The Chinese even had methods of protecting themselves from annoying dragons. It was said that they could be frightened away or controlled by the leaves of the wang plant (or Pride of India), fivecolored silk thread, wax, iron, or centipedes. It is difficult to imagine a dragon being deterred bywax or centipedes. Perhaps this idea grew from a single dragon who reacted in fear to these objects, just as some humans fear crawling things, heights, or mice. After all, dragons have very distinct and individual personalities, just as we do. In Chinese medicine, the skin, bones, teeth, and saliva were considered very valuable.

The shedding and regrou'th of teeth is known to occur amon: certain animals, reptiles, and amphibians. Dragon saliva was said to be found as a frothy foam on the ground or floating on the \vater. It n'as usually deposited during mating or fighting. One Chinese storv tells of a great battle just off the coast near a fishing village. The people rvatched the great dragons rolling in the black clouds and leaping rvaves for a day and a night. Their echoing roars were clearly heard by all the villagers. The next morning these people set out in all their fishing boats to the place of the battle. They scooped up whole boatloads of dragon saliva that they found floating in huge piles on the ocean. The blood of Oriental dragons was sometimes red, other times black. Dragon experts said it changed into amber when it soaked into the ground. Wherever dragon blood fell, the ground became incapable of supporting any vegetation. Although the blood n'as considered dangerous, sometimes deadly, in Oriental myths, European heroes bathed in it to create invulnerability or drank it to become wise.

e*eemed in oriental medicine, these magickal creatures were not hunted down as were Western dragons. In the Mideast, there seems to have been a meeting ground for dragons, some being like chinese dragons, others more like western dragons. Phrygian history tells of dragons that reached ten paces in length, lived in caverns near the River Rhyndacus, and moved with part of their bodies on the ground, the rest erect. Islam gives hints of Muhammad's magick horse rising to heaven with the aid of dragon's breath. An illustration from a Turkish manuscript now in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris shons this scene. The Egyptian Apep was described as a huge serpent-dragon that lived in the Underworld. The Canaanite god Ba'al is said to have killed the dragon Lotan and made the world from its body; the Hittites had a similar legend about the dragon Illuyankas. The Mesopotamian god Marduk killed the she-dragon Tiamat and created the world from her body. Ancient heroes of Persia battled

with dragons.
In the Classics, the Greeks told of their hero Herakles slaying the seven-headed hydra, a form of dragon. \\lhile still in his cradle, he slew two giant serpents sent by Hera. later the hero saved Hesione who was chained as a sacrifice to a sea dragon. Perseus did the same for Andromeda. As a baby, Apollo also killed a selpent (dragon) sent against his mother by Hera. Jason killed a hydra (many-headed dragon) to get the Golden Fleece; scenes of this story can still be seen on Greek dishes from about 480-490 nCE, showing a definite dragon creature. Both the Greek Medea and the Roman Ceres were saiJ to ride in chariots pulled by dragons. Ancient Greece and Rome considered the dragon both beneficent and evil, depending upon the activities of the creature. The Purple Dragon became the emblem of the Byzantine emPelols. There is a wall painting of a dragon still existing in the ruined Roman city of Pompeii' 1n legends from India there was ordinarily no conflict between the gods and the Nagas, or serpent-dragons, as shown by the sto-

The Chinese emphasized the importance of controlling the "dragon's breath" in architecture and landscape. This is still a respected belief in Hong Kong and other places having Chinese communities. There are professionals adept at finding imbalances of the dragon's breath, and they are in demand, not only by home owners, but by businessmen. If a series of unexplained illnesses or misfortunes strikes a business, for instance, the owner will go through the ordinarr-procedures to discover the cause. Ifthere is nothing found, or nothing appears to alleviate the problems, he will send for a person skilled in detecting a disruption of dragon's breath; this person is called a Feng-shui diviner. A visit to the premises is made. This Feng-shui diviner sometimes uses a special magnetic compass that has as many as 38 concentric rings around the needle. Each ring is divided into special traditional measurements of space and time. The diviner takes sightings along what are called the veins of the dragon. These veins are raised features of the landscape, such as trees, rocks, watercourses, valleys, etc. Within buildings, the diviner considers such things as doorways, halls, the directions of corners, and so on. Any iecommendations made bythe diviner are implemented with great s:r-o":sness. If possible, a small garden, aligned in certain ways, is Eac; c.i:s-ce tor the dragon of the region.

This staking or guiding the dragon's Earth energies may have been an ancient art rvhich both balanced and collected these energies within a specific place. Dragons are connected in legends with mazes, spirals,labyrinths, and hills, coiling around or within them. It is possible that the terraced and spiraled hills, the circles of stones, indeed the single monoliths, were a method of controlling and directing this dragon energy. With the spiraled mounds and labyrinths the energy would have been guided into the center of the structure where it would have been of use to initiates who understood its great potential and power. In legends this guideri dragon energy would be symbolizedby the dragon coiling arounc a hill and squeezing the hill into its spiral form, such as in the 1r.ends of the Wormington Hill and Bignor Hill dragons in E:--::The Vurm of Shervage Wood was said to lie in and out ar:::-: -*--: trees of its area, its winding coils marking the bound::-;: -: :.-: ancient so-called campsite.

In the Mabinogion, there is a story of Peredur, son of Efrawg, who refers to a Welsh barrow that is guarded by a Worm. The Mabinogion is filled with symbolic stories that can be interpreted on a spiritual level. On the physical plane, the burial treasure was considered to be magickally charged. Perhaps the treasure in the dragon lairs really meant spiritual treasure which could be discovered through the use of the streams of "dragon" energy. Physical treasure which has been removed from such mounds often carries with it strange vibrations which precipitate very weird events. The ley lines, which have been mapped in Britain proper, may well be streams of positive dragon energF, while the black streams would be imbalanced energy flows of the same type of force. I sus-

They had a policy of building churches to St. Michael the dragon-killer over these old sites, some of them in very uniikely places.

pect that these underground Earth energy streams crisscross the planet and can be found in every country, if a magician is willing to put forth a little effort to discover them.

Close your eyes and mentally see before you the mouth of a huge cave. It is shaped like the mouth of a dragon. Inside, from some deep terrestrial fire, comes a red glow Long drops of stone hang around the opening like teeth. Enter the cave and folow the

dim passageway deep into the Earth. After many twists and turns, you will enter a circular subterranean chamber with crystals embedded in the walls. A gem-encrusted altar stands in the center of the floor. On the altar is a jeweled chalice.
