Nezha (哪吒), also known as Na-zha (Na-ja) or Nata, is a protection deity in Chinese folk religion, originally from Hindu mythology but introduced in China through the spread of Buddhism. His official Taoist name is "Marshal of the Central Altar" (中壇元帥). He was then given the title "Third Lotus Prince" (蓮花三太子) after he became a deity.
Nezha Riots the Seas, also known as Nezha Conquers the Dragon King, is an exciting classical Chinese folk tale that has been known and loved by generations of Chinese children. Full of adventures and challenges, this DVD will enchant every child.
The story opens with Nezha's father Li Jing, a powerful general of Chentang Pass. His wife, after a three-year long pregnancy, gives birth to a ball of flesh shaped like a lotus bud.
Believing this to be an ill omen, Li Jing chops open the lotus bud with a single swipe of his mighty sword. A beautiful baby boy springs out. He can speak and walk immediately after birth.
The Great Monad comes to offer his congratulations. He finds the boy to his liking, so he takes him as a disciple and eaches him magical arts.
The main part of the story revolves around Nezah's feud with the Dragon King, whom he angers through the killing of his son. Through bravery and wit, Nezha finally breaks into the underwater palace of his nemesis and successfully defeats him. Please see Chinese mythology: Nezha Riots the Seas for more details.
This DVD is a animated story about Nazha after he conquers the Dragon King. It is a different story from the traditional
