There used to be a scholar named Wang who was the seventh child in an official’s family. When he heard there were immortals up on Laoshan Mountain, he decided to go and visit them. He climbed up to a mountain peak and there he found a Taoist temple in very quiet surroundings. A Taoist sat on the dais, his white hair reaching down to his shoulders. Wang the Seventh begged to be his student. The Taoist said, “I am afraid you are spoiled and lazy. You can’t stand hardship.” “Oh,” Wang the Seventh said. “But I can!” The Taoist had many students, and Wang the Seventh bowed respectfully to each and every one of them and so they agreed to let him stay. Coming back one evening from gathering firewood, he saw the Priest and two men drinking wine together.
