在昔龍漢有一國王, 其名周禦, 聖德無邊, 時人票受八萬四韆大劫. 王有玉妃, 明哲慈慧, 號曰紫光夫人, 誓塵劫中已發至願, 願生聖子, 輔佐乾坤...遊戲後苑. 至金蓮花溫玉池邊, 脫服澡盅, 忽有所感, 蓮花九苞應時開發, 化生九子。

There was once a king in Longhan named Zhouyu. He had unlimited sagely morality. People at that time had to suffer from eighty-four thousand kalpas. He had a jade concubine, who was wise and benevolent. She was called the Lady of the Purple Radiance, and made a promise to give birth to sagely sons to support the Heaven and Earth...She played in the courtyard, facing the jade pond of golden lotus and took off her clothes to take a bath. Suddenly she had a feeling, and the nine buds of lotus bloomed and became the nine sons.
