Shimen’s Fire Control: Ascension of the Dragon Master

Explore the master's remarkable ability to ignite fire, his discipleship, and the tragic events involving Kong Jia and the master's demise.

Shimen was a disciple of Xiaofu. He was able to immolate himself with fire and ascend to immortality. He consumed peach blossoms and served as the Dragon Master for Emperor Xia Kongjia. Kongjia, annoyed that Shimen wouldn’t comply with his wishes, killed him and buried him in the wilderness. One day, amidst wind and rain, he ascended to heaven, and the trees on the mountain burned. Kongjia set up a shrine to pray to him but died before he could return home.
