According to "Ocean of Eternity", the mythological sacred range known as Kunlun was considered the origin of all things on earth as well as the spiritual home of Daoist Goddess, the Queen Mother of the West (Xi Wangmu). In chinese cosmology, mountains ensured cosmic order and permanence. According I-Ching (Book of Changes), the mountain is denoted by the Ken Trigram which describes the mountain as being still, waiting and being prepared. This means the mountain contains within it precious energy, masses of gold and hidden treasures.

Being the most powerful symbol on earth, a mountain peak or series of peak is a common symbol on Imperial Chinese robes, carpets and walls. The emperor always have the mountain symbol decorating the wall behind his royal seat for ultimate protection. It is said that the mountain governs health and relationship of the emperor. Health denotes longevity while relationship denotes national relationship with ministers and other states.
