I'm trying to track down a story, and I was wondering if anyone here could help in my search. It started with me watching the following YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdI3Uoa6BOU I don't know anything really about the speaker or his background, this is the first video I've seen by him. But near the end of his talk, he briefly mentions a story about an Emperor's son, named something like "Jen Wu Da Dei" (no idea if my attempt to spell that was anything near correct), who went into the Wudang mountains to cultivate and encountered five dragons who helped him traverse seven stages of consciousness. The speaker says he will not go into the details of that story in this talk, however, so he provides no more details except those. It's probably a long shot, but does anyone know where I can find this full story?? My attempts at Google-fu have thusfar been fruitless. From the vague description I've gotten so far, it seems to have thematic similarities to ʿAṭṭār's Conference of the Birds, and so I'm interested in finding this story to do a deeper analysis of it. Also, as an aside, is there a better subforum for questions like this??
