MYTHOLOGY MEME -  CHINESE GODDESS  Meng-Po

Meng-Po serves in Di Yu, the Chinese realm of the dead. It is her task to ensure that souls who are ready to be reincarnated do not remember their previous life or their time in hell. She collects herbs from various earthly ponds and streams to make her Five Flavored Tea of Forgetfulness. This is given to each soul to drink before they leave Di Yu. The brew induces instant and permanent amnesia, and all memory of other lives is lost.

“The Soup of Forgetfulness”


“This is just an concept art.I wanted to get a feel of watercolour painting before I do the digital version. It is based on the traditional Chinese culture of the afterlife.”

   “Meng Po (Chinese: 孟婆; pinyin: Mèng Pó; literally: “Old Lady Meng”) is the Lady of Forgetfulness in Chinese mythology.Meng Po serves in Diyu, the Chinese realm of the dead, in the 10th court.It is her task to ensure that souls who are ready to be reincarnated do not remember their previous life or their time in hell.To this end she collects herbs from various earthly ponds and streams to make her Five Flavored Tea of Forgetfulness (simplified Chinese: 迷魂汤; traditional Chinese: 迷魂湯; Wade–Giles: Mi-hun-t'ang; literally: “waters of oblivion”).This is given to each soul to drink before they leave Diyu. The brew induces instant and permanent amnesia, and all memory of other lives is lost.Having been purged of all previous sins and knowledge, the dead spirit is sent to be reborn in a new earthly incarnation, and the cycle begins again.Occasionally people are able to avoid drinking the brew, resulting in past life memories surfacing in children.”

Glinda created the Forbidden Fountain with the Waters of Oblivion, at the center of Oz.

  • Forbidden Fountain: contains the Water of Oblivion and considered to be the “most dangerous” thing in Oz. Whoever drinks suffers instant amnesia. The Fountain is on the grounds of the Royal Palace in the Emerald City. Clear sparkling water bubbles up in its golden basin. There is a sign that reads, “All Persons are Forbidden to Drink at this Fountain.”
  • Water of Oblivion: Whoever drinks the water suffers instant amnesia. Baum puts an unusual stress on the moral influence of the Water of Oblivion. In his works, the water not only wipes the memory but leaves the drinkers almost like an innocent child. The drinker now has the opportunity to grow wise. One drinker, Ruggedo, slowly began to regain his memories and caused him to turn wicked again. He was once again exposed to the water. 

In this pic I see a FOUNTAIN and CHARMING on the ground. I’m not saying but I’m saying The Charmings may cast the Lost Year curse and Glinda definitely had a hand in it. This may have all been done to save the baby and get back to Emma so she could stop Zelena.
