Up on the cliff..

.. this is where you would find the dragon gate. On a clear day you could see the vast expanse of this emerald-color lake. Most days are rainy, foggy and cloudy, wrapping the dragon cave in a mysterious aura. Note: location shown on map or you could just remember to visit West Mountain. The lake is called Dianchi Lake.

This is the fish

To become a dragon, the fish must sail through the dragon gate. It is a do or die mission. That's why prayer is so critical here. The fish represents us humans and the fish struggle to become dragon represents our wishes to improve our lot.

These 3 gods can help with crossing the dragon gate. The one at the center has the power over passing exams. The one on the right can help with promotions in the government service. The one on the left could help with promotions in the army. A better picture of the 3 gods is provided at the end.

The big belly button at the center of the horizontal bar means re-birth. So, rejoice, all is not lost. Dead fish could reborn... and renew their struggle to become dragons.
