Chinese Prophecy - Push Him Out.
"Push Him Out!", is a pamphlet of Chinese Prophecy. In actuality, it is a translation of the Chinese book of the same name. The translation was done by a Chinese whose name in the book was "Translator." The translation was printed at the Shanghai Mercury Office. The contents of the original Chinese book included many pictures drawn by some ministers led by Yuen Tien-kan, according to his own preface. According to him, the prophecies were drawn out because the ministers were ordered by the Emperor himself to show His Majesty the future. The prophecies were supposed to foretell the events of the next
millennium, starting from that year (643 A.D.). There were over 60 sketches. The current translation is a compilation of five different variations of the original book, ending with 67 descriptions of the sketches in the pamphlet. According to the translator in his preface (there were three prefaces in the pamphlet), tradition had it that the gods were angry about having the future discovered by man so they sent winds to scatter the order of the pictures. This means that the pictures are not in chronological order.
At any rate, one of the sketches done (it's the picture on the front of the translated version - the only picture of that version) shows "an armored man, with a boy pushing behind him." The description under that picture is
Times and seasons seek ye here;
'Tis not man who governs all
Pictures study--PUSH HIM OUT!
All is well when Heaven reigns!
Does this mean the struggle between the Chinese and foreigners? Specifically between the Han and the Manchus or the bigger struggle against the "white devils"? It is all very profound.
There are many other descriptions of sketches found in the book. Some involve rulers, other priests, and still others just about strange things that I do not understand. Some interesting ones that might have some relevance to the prophecy above include:
Sketch 6. On a tree is a yellow owl, below there are dead bodies innumerable.
Rebels rise and fill our land--
White, nor black, their colors are;
Eighteen lands, all desert waste,
Parted father is from son.
This sketch might refer to the struggles of the Chinese (yellow owl) against the foreigners, somehow.
There are several prophecies regarding Turks, which I find strange. For example, sketch 15 shows "A Turk sits on a stone and a (Chinese) king prostrates himself before him."
Sketch 20 shows "Two (Chinese) kings are giving the imperial seal to one another. Behind them are two Turks watching them."
Sketch 53 is an even more direct in terms of foreign conflict: "A boy, on whose head there grows a green branch, drawing his bow to shoot a Foreigner."
Torn hat, colored--watch ye well!
Sons of Ming fresh troubles bring;
Frightened by the Western gods,
Eighteen Turks all rebels turn.
In sketch 66, the description under the picture holds an interesting point: "A white-robed elder, with black scarf."
Western dogs at Eastern bark--
Vexing scholars many springs.
Guests turn masters--How endure?
Wait till ONE comes to avenge.
What does all this mean? I do not, of course, know. I don't even know if the ministers really meant one millennium after the time the drew up the prophecies, because that only goes up to the 17th century. However, where do all the mention of Turks come from? Unless if the term "Turks" was translated inaccurately, or else what does it all mean about Turks taking over China (apparently from the prophecies). Could it happen in the future? Maybe.
The last prophecy I included here could actually be interpreted as the imperialist Western powers coming into China and grabbing spheres of influence from it. Then who does ONE stand for?
Of course, these prophecies could all be false (although I personally don't keep my mind so closed, even to things like prophecies). After all, the ministers could just have concocted these pictures so the Emperor would not behead them for disobedience. All in all, I think this pamphlet was a very interesting find.
