1 皇初平:
皇初平者。丹溪人也。年十五,家使牧羊,有道士見其良謹,便將至金華山石室中。四十餘年。不復念家。其兄初起,行山尋索初平,歷年不得。後見市中有一道士,初起召問之曰:「吾有弟名初平,因令牧羊。失之四十餘年。莫知死生所在,願道君為占之。」道士曰:「金華山中有一牧羊兒,姓皇,字初平,是卿弟非疑。」初起聞之,即隨道士去,求弟遂得,相見悲喜。語畢,問初平羊何在,曰:「近在山東耳。」初起往視之,不見,但見白石而還,謂初平曰:「山東無羊也。」初平曰:「羊在耳,兄但自不見之。」初平與初起俱往看之。初平乃叱曰:「羊起。」於是白石皆變為羊數萬頭。初起曰:「弟獨得仙道如此,吾可學乎。初平曰:「唯好道,便可得之耳。」初起便棄妻子留住,就初平學。共服松脂茯苓,至五百歲,能坐在立亡,行於日中無影,而有童子之色。後乃俱還鄉里,親族死終略盡,乃復還去。初平改字為赤松子,初起改字為魯班。其後服此藥得仙者數十人。出《神仙傳》
