1 Sara Di Diego = "He Xiangu was born with 6 long hairs on the crown of her head.  When she was 14 or 15 she was visited by a divine vision who told her to eat ground mica, to become immortal.  With that, she swore to remain a virgin.Work Cited:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/He_Xiangu"
2 Sara Di Diego = "He Xiangu is often seen carrying a lotus flower or fenghuang, a musical instrument.  Here she is carrying a bamboo ladle which she is sometimes seen with.  There is also a chance of her carrying a fly-whisk.Work Cited:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/He_Xiangu"
3 Sara Di Diego = "There is another version of how He Xiangu became immortal.  As a young girl, she worked for a very mean woman.  The woman told Xiangu to watch the soy milk she was making, and that if anything went wrong she would beat Xiangu.  Then 7 beggars came and said they would die from starvation if they did not eat.  So Xiangu gave them the soy milk.  When the woman came back, she beat Xiangu and then told the beggars to throw up the soy milk.  Then she made Xiangu drink the soy milk. When she finished, she was lifted into the air and discovered that it was all a test and that the beggars were actually the seven other immortals!Work Cited:http://fuckyeahchinesemyths.tumblr.com/post/10480350752/8-immortals-he-xiangu"
