story of the legend of the koi fish transforming into a dragon

Once upon a time, there was a little Kohaku koi fish who lives in a beautiful small pond.

One day He decided to go in the dragon’s gate because he wanted to
become a dragon as what he heard his grandfather told him that
whenever you will succeed in reaching the dragon’s gate you will
turn into a beautiful dragon,

so the little kohaku koi fish jump out of his pond and swim towards
the dragons gate when He was about to reach the summit of the
water fall the Gods test him they make large waves to prevent the
koi fish from reaching

the dragon’s gate but the little koi fish is determined to reach the
top He keeps on swimming even if he was already tired and
exausted and then the Gods throw him ball of fires and even lighting

but this did not stop the little kohaku koi fish he continues to swim
upward the water fall and then successfully reach the dragon’s gate. The Gods were very pleased with the little koi fish that they turn the little koi fish into a beautiful dragon.

My story is based on Fish in Chinese mythology

Here is also a story from this site http://www.egreenway.com/dragonsrealms/DT3.htm

The Threshold of the Dragon’s Gate

“Beneath the serene quiet of the water lilies a young carp senses a calling . . . swelling up in her heart
like the swirling waters at the base of a great waterfall,

Somehow summoned to go beyond the barrier of crashing water and veiled mist

The churning waters of the waterfall’s bottom matches that of the young carp’s desires

Finally with a burst of enthusiasm the carp has launched herself up
the wall of rushing water cresting the first fall with a surge of effort
only to be met with relentless rushing water.

Persevering from one cataract to the next the carp make it to the summit’s last falls.

Regrouping her energies in a pocket of scouring effervescence
every essence of strength, courage, and spirit is consumed in the launching over the fall’s summit.

And the dragon’s gate accepts her efforts a transforming gate of fire Revealing the birth of a new Dragon

born of the seed of desire planted in the heart of a small carp that once hid in the shallows.”

– Howard Schroeder, Threshold of the Dragon’s Gate

legend of carp turning into a dragon

A long time ago, in the distant past, the water of the
blue river that flowed from the sky, and the golden river
that flowed from the land were separated by the legendary
Dragon’s Gate.

The golden river, so-called because of the golden colour
of its water, was the last place where the inhabitants of
the sea could swim freely, after the gods that walked on
the earth had destroyed their massive home, believing
themselves to be the owners of everything they laid their
eyes on.

Amongst all the inhabitants of their water, the Koi family were the
most beautiful of all, gleaming in the sunlight like brilliant stars.

The black one was father Koi, the red one was mother Koi, and their little son was a remarkable deep blue colour.

What the little Koi fish wanted more than anything was to reach the
waters of the blue river after hearing from his father how there was
a time where there were no barriers between one place and the other.

The bravest fish, the dragon fish, flew across the sky like pearls lighting up the darkness.

The entrance was upstream, through the Dragon’s Gate to the Great Waterfall of the blue river. Every fish that got that far sprouted golden wings and so became a dragon fish. learn more here

The Story of the Koi Dragon

The legend says that a certain koi had the strength and courage to climb a certain waterfall.

When the koi reached the top exhausted, yet having reached its goal, the koi was transformed into a dragon.

The koi dragon is one of the mythical characters in the Japanese culture which is not actually a dragon.

It is a Japanese fish (Koi fish), which has the power to turn into a dragon.

The koi dragon starts to swim off as a fish up a river and then when it reaches a certain waterfall, tries to cross it.

If it is able to cross the waterfall, then it transforms itself into a dragon and thus it is known as the koi dragon.

The tattoo stands for overcoming obstacles through courage and perseverance.

As the koi fish swims up the waterfall and transforms itself to a
dragon, it symbolizes that nothing is impossible when you believe.

If you work hard and put yourself to tests, you will eventually rise
above your fears and become the ruler of your destiny.

The Daffodils (which are a year old) represents my sisters and their
unconditional and unselfish support and encouragement they provide through each journey.

I love this tattoo as it is something I feel everyone can relate to
throughout their own journey through life. read more here

legend of the dragon gate

LEAPING THE DRAGON GATE

koi fish turning into dragon

On the Yellow River at Hunan is a waterfall called the Dragon Gate. It is said that if certain carp called Yulong can climb the cataract
they will transform into dragons.

Every year in the third month of spring they swim up from the sea
and gather in vast numbers in the pool at the foot of the falls.

It used to be said that only seventy one could make the climb in any year. When the first succeeded, then the rains would begin to fall.

This Dragon Gate was said to have been created after the Flood by
the god-emperor Yu who split a mountain blocking the path of the Yellow River.

It was so famous that throughout China there was a common
saying that: ‘a student facing his examinations is like a carp attempting to leap the Dragon Gate.’

Hunan is not the only place where this happens. Many other waterfalls in China also have the name Dragon Gate and much the same is said about them.

Other famous Dragon Gates are on the Wei River where it passes
through the Lung Sheu Mountains and at Tsin in Shanxi Province. learn more here
