Oriental mythologies share amongst them many similarities, one of
which is their departure from the convention of the myths of Europe
such as that of the Greek. We present to you a slice out of the
pie of oriental mythology hoping that by doing so, you would be
able to notice various differences in terms of the style and the
tone of the myths of East and West.
For one, the
gods in the East are much less omnipotent as those from the West.
The glamour that is associated with the Greek gods and goddesses
are a far cry from those in Oriental mythologies. The problem with
Oriental mythologies is also the fact that history is very often
interwined with fiction, blurring the line between facts and myths,
especially so in the case of China. We have taken much care to choose
only myths which did not involve history, and as such we present
to you a selection of oriental myths.
