"HSI WANG MU" IS THE THE CHINESE GODDESS OF IMMORTALITY AND ETERNAL LIFE; SHE IS THE PERSONIFICATION OF THE FEMALE ENERGY OF "YIN". MANY REFER TO HER AS THE "'ROYAL MOTHER OF THE WEST'", SHE RULES OVER THE WESTERN PARADISE OF THE IMMORTALS. SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF THE GOD, "YU-HUANG", AND HER HUSBAND IS "MU KUNG. "SHE WAS ONCE A TERRIFYING MONSTER GODDESS WITH THE FACE OF A WOMAN, THE TEETH OF A TIGER, AND THE TAIL OF A LEOPARD, BUT ACCORDING TO TRADITION, SHE WAS TRANSFORMED INTO A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN ONCE SHE CAME UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF TAOISM. HENCE, WE FIND HER MOST OFTEN PORTRAYED AS A YOUNG BEAUTIFUL WOMAN WEARING A GOWN OF ROYAL FABRIC. HER LONG BLACK HAIR IS GENERALLY HELD WITH WITH ORNAMENTS OF PEARLS OR JADE. SHE IS SOMETIMES PICTURED RIDING A PEACOCK OR WITH WHITE CRANES BESIDE HER; ALL OF WHICH WERE BELIEVED TO BE HER CONSTANT COMPANIONS.

HER INCREDIBLE NINE STORY JADE PALACE LIES IN THE MYTHICAL "LAND OF IMMORTALS" IN THE "MOUNTAINS OF KUNLUN." IT IS SAID TO BE A PLACE OF GREAT BEAUTY WITH MARBLE BUILDINGS, SPARKLING BROOKS, AND MAGNIFICENT GARDENS. IT IS SURROUNDED BY A WALL OF OVER A THOUSAND MILES LONG AND OF PURE GOLD. THE MALE IMMORTALS ARE SAID TO RESIDE IN THE RIGHT WING WHILE THE FEMALE IMMORTALS RESIDE IN THE LEFT WING OF THIS PALACE. IT IS IN HER GARDEN THAT SHE CULTIVATES THE "PEACH OF IMMORTALITY", A GIANT COSMIC PEACH TREE WHICH FORMS ONLY ONE PEACH EVERY THREE THOUSAND YEARS. WHEN THE PEACH IS HARVESTED, "HSI WANG MU" INVITES THE IMMORTALS TO A FEAST TO CELEBRATE HER BIRTHDAY AND TO PARTAKE IN A CELESTIAL WINE, AN ELIXIR OF IMMORTALITY AND WISDOM WHICH SHE MIRACULOUS PEACH WHICH BESTOWS ANOTHER LEASE OF IMMORTALITY.

THE POWER OF HER PEACH TREES IS SO REMARKABLE THAT CHINESE WIZARDS USED THEIR BRANCHES FOR MAGIC WANDS. EATING THE FRUIT INSURES 3,000 YEARS OF GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS.
