The dragon in buddhism by lubo-09 (As far as I know, dragon...is a loosely translated name for Naga when Buddhism was introduced into ancient China. Naga and dragon in native Chinese mythology are quite different.)
HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones starts this weekend, and we're seeing dragons everywhere. Dragons perched over cities! Dragons on electric guitars! People and their pets dressed as dragons! Dragons are the universal signifier of awesomeness.
