Thanks but I can’t find anything on ”gomo sen-nin”. Do you have any reference as Google don’t give any useful hits.

252. GOMO ^ The Taoist worthy, Wu Meng. When eight years
old, he suffered himself to be bitten by mosquitoes, rather than brush them
aside for fear they might plague his parents who lived in the same room.
This paragon of filial piety became a disciple of the wizard Ting I A. T Hfc
(Shi jin Teiji), and as an example of his proficiency, he is often repre-
sented crossing a river on a feather fan, which he waved over the boisterous
waters, as the winds were against his progress. He is also represented
with fan in hand, driving through the heavens a chariot drawn by two
stags. He is credited with the slaying of a giant snake, and his favourite
pupil appears to have been Fu Chen Rung. His daughter, Tsai Lwan,
is the Shinretsu, or Gosairan of the Japanese, herself an adept of Taoist
necromancy and the companion of Bunsho (Wen Siao) (q.v.) with whom
she is depicted riding on tigers above Mount Etsuo.
