Sun Wukong ,the Monkey King, is perhaps the most famous and beloved fictional character in all of classical Chinese literature and the main character in Journey to the West. A magician, priest, ruler, sage, and warrior in the shape of a monkey, he is the mischievous protagonist of Journey to the West, based on popular tales dating back to the Tang dynasty. The novel narrates his adventures from birth, in particular how he accompanied the monk Xuanzang, also known as Sanzang or Tangseng, to retrieve Buddhist sutras from India. Some scholars believe he is based upon the legend of Hanuman, the Indian monkey hero from the ancient Ramayana epic. Sun Wukong - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Avidya, in Hinduism, means ignorance, or individual ignorance. Avidya, according to Samkara, is endless but can end at any moment when man attains spiritual illumination. Avidya causes man to move further away from the Self and obscure his knowledge of the truth. In the Bhagavad Gita it is noted that all sufferings and limitations imposed by the ego come from avidya; consequently man has to seek knowledge, with which hatred, injury and greed are incompatible.

For this weeks sketch I've posted a memory from Juinior Highschool. I'm the one on the right. The big guy is Billy Monohan. He was the only kid in school who had facial hair. I dont remember what started the fight (if you can call it a fight) but I almost got my ass kicked because I stood up to this juvenille monster during gym class. I remember it like it was yesterday (cue flashback music and wavy ripples). He cornered me in the locker room afterwards and all I cold do was continue to stand up to him. His man boobs rendered my punches useless. He raised his hand to retaliate and the gym teacher Mr. Land grabbed him from behind just before he punched my face off and left me in a puddle of my own snot and piss. Rumor was he was expelled for punching the principal. I never saw him after that.
