轩辕夏禹剑

Chief of the 10 Legendary/Mythological Chinese Swords

Shur Yuan Sher Sur Sword, also called Shur Yuan Sword. Created from Copper Ore gathered from the highest peaks of China where the gods reside. It was forged by the Mythological Yellow Emperor (creator of China) and eventually passed to the Founding King of China's first kingdom.

When the world was still young, both people and demons lived on the land. The demons became an ever growing meance. The Yellow Emperor led the humans to stop the invasion lead by the demon king. The gods opened the heaven and earth and forged the every essence of existence into a weapon that is capable of matching the most powerful demons.

Unfortunately fate did not intend for this to come to pass. Even though the Sword was shaped, it was hallow and lacked will. With no other alternative the Yellow Emperor went to battle against the Demonic Hosts that have entered the land of the mortals. Eventually the Yellow Emperor was victorials and used the incomplete blade to slay the Demon King. However, the Sword's power was undeveloped and it could not destroy the Demon King forever.

The Yellow Emperor used the 5 Colored Rainbow Stone, used by the Goddess Leu Wor to mend the heavenly firmament and save the world, to seal the demonic essence with in. To make this feat possible the Yellow Emperor had to sacrifice all his spiritual power in the ritual. The still living body of the Demon King was buried deep in the bowels of the earth, and the 5 Colored Rainbow Stone was hidden on the surface.

Centuries later the immortal weapon was claimed by Yu the Great (大禹 Dà-Yǔ), the legendary founder of the Xia Dynasty that began in 2205 BCE. Yu was the founding father of China's first Dynasty and can trace his lineage to the Yellow Emperor directly. By this time the Sword has gathered the energy of Creation and awoken.

The once smooth surface is now reflecting clear patterns. The blade of the sword has the reflection of the heavenly firmanement on one side and that of terra firma on the other. The hilt is adored with the ways of goverance and living harmonious with the land. With the sword in hand, Yu gathered the people of the land and brought them prosperity and bounty with mysticism gained from the sword. This marked the transencence of China from barbarism into the light of civilization.

When he passed away the sword gained the name of "轩辕夏禹剑" or "Heavenly and Earthly Sword of Yu." Of the 10 legendary blades, this one is ranked highest. It is the Saintly Sword. It embodies the essence of The Yellow Emperor, Yu the Great, Courage, Wisdom, Compassion, and all the virtues associated with the path of Sainthood.


中国古代十大名剑

轩辕夏禹剑,又名轩辕剑。它是众神采首山之铜为黄帝所铸,后传与夏禹。剑身一面刻日月星辰,一面刻山川草木。剑柄一面书农耕畜养之术,一面书四海一统之策。是一把圣道之剑。

轩辕夏禹剑是一把圣道之剑。黄帝、夏禹,勇气、智慧、仁爱……一切归于两个字:圣道。

公元前3000年左右,轩辕黄帝为征伐妖族首领蚩尤,与众神开山取天地精华用以铸造了神兵对抗 轩辕夏禹剑蚩尤。可惜事与愿违,剑体虽然天成,但并无剑气,眼看蚩尤大军即将攻入人界,黄帝用未铸成的神兵斩杀蚩尤。由于未铸成的神剑灵力有限,并不能击败蚩尤,黄帝只能取下女娲补天时留下的五块神石,再将蚩尤的头部砍下,用自己全身的灵力注入补天石,将蚩尤封引在地下迷宫,并将已经夺取了蚩尤灵魂的补天石散落到人界。

辗转间,黄帝铸造的神兵流落到夏禹手中,经过了百年的风霜,原本光秃的剑身神奇的出现了花纹:剑身一面刻日月星辰,一面刻山川草木。剑柄一面书农耕畜养之术,一面书四海一统之策。

凭着夏禹手中的这把剑,人类在他的管辖之下,渐渐的学会了农耕畜养,道德伦常,夏禹去世之后,人们将这把剑命名为——轩辕夏禹剑。

后此剑为商汤所得,大败上古三大邪刀。

上古三大邪刀,造刀者不明,相传锻造原料中使用了许多恶毒之物,并有多种诅咒缠缚。夏朝末期为君主桀所有,之后暴政开始。三刀被供奉于夏朝太庙,据史料记载,商汤攻入夏朝太庙之时,黑云遮天,鬼哭神嚎,龙牙、虎翼、犬神三大邪刀化为三股妖风袭来,顿时商朝大军死伤无数。汤王弃戈下马,手持轩辕剑单人闯入太庙主殿,挥剑疾斩,三大邪刀被击成碎片封印于地下。

自此之后,就再无轩辕剑记载。
