Lang Ling

Chinese - A follower of Li T'ieh-kuai. He was left in charge of the body of Li T'ieh-kuai when the latter's soul visited Lao-tzu in heaven and, thinking that his master was truly dead, cremated the body so that when the sage returned he had to take on another body, that of a recently-dead lame beggar. Occasionally referred to as Lang Ling.
