Some books call it Li, Hongshui, Tieguai Li, from the gorge of the Sui Dynasty; Lu Xun's a brief history of Chinese Novels said that his surname was Li and his name was Xuan; Zhao Yi's Xinyu Cong Kao also said that his surname was Liu. It is said that he was a man between Kaiyuan of Emperor Xuanzong of the Tang Dynasty and Dali of emperor Daizong of the Tang Dynasty. He learned Taoism in Zhongnan mountain. Once the yuan God came out of his shell. Unexpectedly, his body was eaten by tigers, so he had to devote himself to a lame beggar. The general guide to immortals of all dynasties said that he was originally very tall and beautiful, and practiced in Dangshan cave. Because it was agreed to participate in Lao Jun's Huashan immortal society, he told his disciples when he left that if the yuan God did not return for seven days, he would burn the body shell, and then leave the body shell for the yuan God to travel outside. Unexpectedly, on the sixth day, someone from the disciple's family reported that his mother was critically ill. The disciple had no choice but to burn the body shell. Soon after the disciple returned home, Li Tieguai's Yuanshen returned and had nowhere to trust. Suddenly, he saw a starved corpse in the forest. He entered through his forehead and forehead. When he stood up, he felt that he couldn't do it. Tieguali quickly poured out the elixir given by the old gentleman from the gourd. The gourd flashed golden light and reflected an ugly image. He had a black face, a shaggy head, a curly beard and huge eyes, and his right foot was still lame. He was surprised when someone clapped behind him. Looking back, it was Lao Jun. In a hurry, the iron crutch Li wanted to jump out of the yuan God. The old gentleman stopped and said, Tao doesn't lie in appearance. As long as you are full of Kung Fu, you are a real fairy. then the old gentleman gave him a gold hoop to tie up his disorderly hair and help him with his lameness with an iron crutch. Tieguali often carries a gourd. It is said that it contains fairy medicine. When it falls to the world, it is specially used to cure diseases and save people.
