    Abstract

    Of the two major salvation stories in Jixian lu, “Xi Wangwu” and “Yunhua Furen,” the latter is a more creative piece of work as compared with the former. Du Guangting based it on the traditional story of Yaoji and transformed the goddess from the Virgin Goddess to the salvation goddess. In “Yunhua Furen”, Yunhua Furen takes up her new role of rescuing Yu from his dangerous situation. Yunhua Furen not only saves Yu, she also saves the entire country from the calamity of the great floods, which is indeed a virtuous deed and a meritorious achievement.
