Dilong Dragon-

Dilong Dragon- 
Dilong Dragon 
Good afternoon my dears Followers & Friends I want to introduce you to the Dilong Dragon. The Ancient Chinese Dragon of 'Earth Dragon'.  He is the last of the four Ancient Chinese Heavenly Dragons who control the waterways on the Earth: There was the Celestial Dragon [Tianlong], who guards the heavenly dwellings of the Gods; the Fuzanglong Dragon [the Dragon of Hidden Treasure]; And the Spiritual Dragon [the Shenlong Dragon] who controls the rain,winds,clouds and thunderstorms. I have already covered the Tianlong Dragon, Shenlong Dragon & Fuzanglong Dragon, so for today's post I am going to cover the Dilong Dragon -the Earth Dragon who control the waterways of the Earth. In Chinese Mythology Dilong means 'Earth Dragon' as with the other Chinese 'heavenly dragons'  the SHENLONG DRAGONG - TIANLONG DRAGON - FUZANGLONG DRAGON AND NOW THE DILONG DRAGON...When
first starting the Dilong Dragon (dilong means 'earth dragon') I found that it had many different version of meanings. However, the Dilong Dragon was the four of the Chinese Element Dragons. Hence the Long Dragons or Divine Dragons. Since such dragons as the Shenlong is (divine dragon), and (huanglong) is Yellow dragon. And (di')means 'Earth;Land;Soil; & Ground which semantically contrasts with (tian) means 'heaven & sky. And (tiandi - Tiandihui) means heaven, earth and universe. It can be a little confusing but
bare with me. The Dilong dragon - Earth Dragon is also used to mean 'Earthworm' in Traditional Chinese Medicine and 'Geosaurus' in 'Zoological Nomenclature'. I found that the Dilong Dragon was paired with the 
Tianlong Dragon 'heavenly Dragon'. Which is interesting for the fact that the Heavenly Chinese Dragons are able to fly, and thus were considered the celestial dragons or creatures rather than 
Terrestrial ones like that of the 'Earthbound' Dilong Dragon.  It seems that there were two other 
exceptions that I didn't know of till I started this post on the Dilong Dragon and that would be the Panlong Dragons which are 'Coiled/Curled Dragons; a dragon that has not ascended to the Heavens' And the 
Tulong Dragon - an 'Soil/Earth Dragon', which is referred to as the Tuo' Dragon - 'The Chinese Alligator' or 
the Japanese Mogura Dragon - 'the Mole'. I hope I haven't lost you all my dear friends and followers:ooo
There is more to the tale of the Dilong dragon.. It seems that in the mid 7th-century during the Liang Dynasty,  Admiral Wang Sengbian  is said to have seen the Lianglong Dragons 'Two/pair Dragons', that ascended into the sky, and the Dilong Dragon 'Earth Dragon', leave the Liang territory which was a main portent of their 
defeat in the year 550CE of his Dynasty. There is another tale of the Dilong Dragon and this is the 
'Earth Dragon Child' which is an Elegant name for the 'Earthworm' which is usually called the Qiuyinlong Dragon. I also discovered that the Dilong was first means Earthworm' in the Quixiu Leigao in the Ming Dynasty. It was a bit difficult to find info on the last two dragons to complete the 4-Chinese heavenly dragons but I was able to do it. And I hope you all Enjoy the four post too. I will continue to try to write interesting and fun post for you all .. I wish you all the best - I love you all very much
