Journey to the West or Xiyou Ji (literally: ‘West-Wandering Chronicles’) is a Chinese novel published in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty and attributed to Wu Cheng’en. It is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature.
The novel is an extended account of the legendary pilgrimage of the Tang dynasty Buddhist monk who traveled to the “Western Regions”, that is, Central Asia and India, to obtain Buddhist sacred texts (sūtras) and returned after many trials and much suffering. He has three disciples cum protectors who helped him as an atonement for their own sins. These disciples are Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing.
Journey to the West has strong roots in Chinese folk religion, Chinese mythology, Confucianist, Taoist and Buddhist philosophy, and the pantheon of Taoist immortals and Buddhist bodhisattvas are still reflective of some Chinese religious attitudes today.
