General Pig is the embodiment of the Buddha Amitabha. As the master of time and space—the original elements of the universe—the Buddha Amitabha is responsible for managing the gods. It is said that the Buddha Amitabha came down to the world in the form of a pig to determine how long humans should live, and how much space they would need to live in. The Buddha Amitabha gave life to humans and fairly gave each of them a place to live.
