The speaker will suggest that the oedipal god survived in the Chinese cultural environment by the pretense of filial piety. He will further trace his cult from China back to ancient India, for Nezha was originally an Indian deity named Nalakūbara, whose figure had been likely influenced by that of the great child god Kŗşņa. It is possible, therefore, that two of the greatest Asian story cycles — of the child-god Nezha and of the infant Kŗşņa — are related A Death on Diamond Mountain: A True Story of Obsession, Madness, and the Path to Enlightenment.

Trauma and intense pain whether experienced by the soul, or inflicted on another during life will tend to fragment the self and make conscious control after death difficult.
