Among some 360 scaled creatures in Chinese mythology, the dragon occupied the top of a hierarchy. It was represented by a mixture of several animals but there were a significant number of varieties of dragons according to its habitat
He was one of the four animals symbolizing the cardinal points.
The dragon represented the sunrise so the East, spring and fertility, unlike for example the white tiger of the West.
For the record, the other two animals were the Phoenix in the south and the turtle in the north.
In Taoism, dragons were as benevolent and brought happiness and prosperity. It was only with Buddhism that their nature took on a more threatening aspect.
The dragon was the symbol of the Emperor of China for two millennia it was customary to call the Emperor of China, "Dragon".
According to legend, the dragon had nine sons with a clear personality and a very specific place in iconography.
In Buddhism, the Dragon is the vehicle of Vairocana, the white Buddha sitting in the east (or center). His throne supported by Dragons probably derives from the Chinese imperial throne. The Turquoise Dragon is the mount of a large number of protective deities, guardians of treasures and gods of rain and thunderstorms. As guardians of treasures, Sino-Tibetan Dragons are the counterparts of Indian nagas. The Tibetan term druk (tib.brug) means both "dragon" and "thunder". Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom, is called Druk Yul (Land of the Dragon). Its inhabitants, the drukpas, take their name from the spiritual lineage drukpa kagyu, originally from Tibet. This lineage was established by the sage Tsangpa Gyaré who, having once observed nine dragons disappearing in the sky near Gyantse, decided to establish the monastery of Ralung. In Tibetan Buddhism, the rise to heaven of a group of Dragons is a sign of good omen.
