The Emperor asked Li Shaoweng, how to get to the floating mountain.
‘First, offer to Taiyi(太一); only then can one ascend to the heavens. Only after ascending to the heavens can one reach Penglai(蓬萊).’
Li Shaoweng from Qi, aged two hundred, had the appearance of a youth. His creations in various forms were all effective. The Emperor greatly believed in him, appointed him as the General of Wencheng, and treated him as an honored guest. Inside the Ganquan Palace, he painted images of various gods including Taiyi for worship. Shaoweng said: ‘First, offer to Taiyi; only then can one ascend to the heavens. Only after ascending to the heavens can one reach Penglai.’
