Dragons are such mysterious, spiritual and powerful creatures. In the Dragon year 2012, what kind of luck can Dragon bring to us?
In the mythology of various Oriental cultures, notably China and Japan, the dragon is the supreme spiritual power; the most ancient emblem in Oriental mythology; and, the most ubiquitous motif in Oriental art. Dragons represent celestial and terrestrial power, wisdom, and strength. They reside in water and bring wealth and good luck and, in Chinese belief, rainfall for crops. The dragon in traditional Chinese New Year’s Day parades is believed to repel evil spirits that would spoil the new year. The five-clawed dragon became the Chinese Imperial emblem (the four-clawed being the common dragon). The three-clawed dragon is a Japanese dragon. In Hindu mythology, Indra, god of the sky and giver of rain, slays Vitra, Dragon of the Waters, to release rainfall.
