Yuan You (Wander Afar) #6:
Going directly (south) to the Fiery God (line 139)

(02.57 to 03.56 in the recording)

--

The narrator heads south for Yan Di (the Fiery God). When he finds the way blocked by Yan Di's attendant, Zhu Rong (also the name of a peak in Hunan's Heng Shan mountain range), he summons various personalities associated with the region, who then sing and dance. Finally he leaves them and travels on.
