Monkey Subdues White-Skeleton Demon
Outline of Programme: "Monkey Subdues White-Skeleton Demon" is a well-known episode from “Journey to the West”, a novel written by Wu Cheng-en in the Ming Dynasty of China. The story is about Tripitaka, who is escorted by his three disciples on his journey to the West Heaven, the ancient Buddhist name for India, in search of Buddhist scriptures. He meets a demon transformed from white skeletons by the name of White-Skeleton Demon. She is sly and knows the weaknesses of human beings and changes herself into different forms, first a beautiful girl, then an old lady and an old man, to deceive Tripitaka and capture him. Monkey sees through all her disguises and finally kills her, and the four resume their journey to the West Heaven.
