Myth

In the Taoism myth, Cheng Lin is the Queen Mother of the West (西王母; Xīwángmǔ).

Queen Mother of the West is a calque of Xiwangmu in Chinese sources, Seiōbo in Japan, Seowangmo in Korea, and Tây Vương Mẫu in Vietnam. She has numerous titles, one of the most popular being the Golden Mother of the Nacre Lake (also translated as “Mother-of-Pearl Lake” or “Nacre Lake”). She is also known in contemporary sources as the Lady Queen Mother. In the Maternist current of Chinese salvationist religions she is the main deity and is called upon as the Eternal Venerable Mother.

Tang writers called her “Golden Mother the First Ruler”, the “Golden Mother of Tortoise Mountain”, “She of the Nine Numina and the Grand Marvel”, and the “Perfected Marvel of the Western Florescence and Ultimate Worthy of the Cavernous Darkness”. Commoners and poets of the era referred to her more simply as the “Queen Mother”, the “Divine Mother”, or simply “Nanny” (Amah).

Ye Si

During the destruction of the Clear Water Pavilion, Ye Si was on the verge of death. When Cheng Lin regained consciousness, only Ye Si’s fragmented soul was left behind, and ordinary methods would have been unable to save her life. Thereupon, Cheng Lin used a fragment of her own, alongside her Way of Nurturing New Life, to give birth to Ye Si again. Cheng Lin used her fragment as a foundation, and merged it with Ye Si’s fragmented soul. Therefore, Ye Si is the same as Cheng Lin’s daughter, but also a part of Cheng Lin.[5]
