Haven't you seen 'The Way West', with the Pig, Monkey and Monk going to India to get Buddhist scriptures. :buddha2:

The Nine Immortals are on TV in Thailand too.

Dear Graham,

No, don't know 'The Way West'...but I read Chinese story about the arahant monk " Tang Sum Chang" with all his adventures....and also the arahant Chi-Kong traveling to heaven/hell ( a temple lady gave me the book...very interesting!!).
