馬鳴生 (or: 馬明生 Maming Sheng)[edit]

Maming Sheng is an immortal who is said to have lived during the Han dynasty although, since he is credited with a presence on earth of over 500 years, he must also have lived during other periods as well. He is known primarily from two biographies of the Shenxian zhuan 神仙傳 (Biographies of Divine Immortals): one under his own name and the biography of Yin Changsheng 陰長生.[1]
