Chapter 1037: Celestial Sect Focus Group Discussion?
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
In the entire Celestial Sect of Wonders, the first person to encounter an Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator in the Great Void Sect was Lin Feng.
In the Greater World more than 10 years ago, during the Battle of Xiling City, Lin Feng sparred with Kuang Heng and the Xuan Lin Holy Man. He also briefly exchanged blows with the Zheng Yi Holy Man.
From then on, Lin Feng had his own thoughts about the mantras of the Great Void Sect. But it’s just that he was not exactly equipped with detailed knowledge of their mantras, thus he could only make paper guesses.
Following the introduction of the Two Elements Chapter, Lin Feng cultivated the virtual entity. He relied on the Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues to try and deduce the secrets of the mantras of the Great Void Sect and managed to achieve some progress. His train of thought then became clearer.
The Xuan Lin Holy Man relied on the Mantra of the Great Oblivion. After he reached the Immortal Soul Second Level, his Dao Fruit was the Heavenly Destruction.
But when they fought at Xiling City, Lin Feng could subtly sense that he possessed back ground in the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void, but it was not just as deep as that of the Mantra of the Great Oblivion. Although he did not reveal any related powers, Lin Feng could still tell.
And on Kuang Heng, this point was far more obvious. Although Kuang Heng only used the Mantra of the Great Oblivion to spar with Lin Feng, his cultivation of the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void was more obvious. However, it was also less cultivated than his Mantra of the Great Oblivion.
If he used the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void to challenge Lin Feng, it would not be comparable to the Mantra of the Great Oblivion. But this did not mean that Kuang Heng’s Yin Yang Mantra of the Void was useless.
On his body, the “Great” and “Void” spells complemented each other. Although the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void was not explicitly used, it could be seen that it supplemented the Mantra of the Great Oblivion to great effect.
When it came to the Zheng Yi Holy Man, it was even more obvious.
It was only a brief exchange of blows during the Battle of Xiling City, thus not much could be told. The recent fight at the Starry Sea allowed Lin Feng to confirm that the Zheng Yi Holy Man definitely cultivated the “Great” and “Void” spells to the highest level.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man also relied on the Mantra of the Great Oblivion to get where he was now, achieving the Immortal Soul Avatar, virtual entity and finally the way of the virtual entity.
But Lin Feng could almost confirm that besides using the Mantra of the Great Oblivion to cultivate a Dao Fruit, the Zheng Yi Holy Man also used the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void to cultivate another Dao Fruit.
With two different yet similar Dao Fruits, the current Zheng Yi Holy Man was created.
A highly skilled monk from the Great Thunderclap with the Golden Form Third Level would only try to reach the Cardinal Tribulations Stage with the complete Tathagata Dharmas of the Compass.
But a monk in the Golden Form Third Level would only need one out of the five Tathagata Dharmas. The other four would serve to assist the leading one. But their effects could not be underestimated. Without one of them, trying to reach the Cardinal Tribulations Stage would be fraught with countless risks.
Thus, after the Vairocana Sutra was lost after the previous War of the Two Worlds, no one from the Great Thunderclap Temple was able to reach the Cardinal Tribulations Stage.
And Lin Feng suspected that the mantras of the Great Void Sect possessed stricter requirements. In the Immortal Soul Third Level, one needed two Dao Fruits, one from the “Great” spell and one from the “Void” spell. This would then allow one to progress forward to the Cardinal Tribulations Stage.
Otherwise, both Dao Fruits had to combine in order to complete the Cardinal Tribulations Stage to reach the Vipralopa Realm.
“Not only does the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void make up for whatever flaws of the Mantra of the Great Oblivion, the Mantra of the Great Oblivion is also a great complement to the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void.” Lin Feng thought, “Although it’s not as flawed as the Mantra of the Great Oblivion, the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void still possesses its own flaws.”
At this point, Lin Feng still had not analyzed the two spells of “Great” and “Void”. But his Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtue managed to deduce the components of them. Even without the original spells around, Lin Feng could still roughly gauge what they were like.
His discovery was even more insane than that of Xiao Yan and was more likely to enrage the cultivators of the Great Void Sect.
That’s because the conclusion of Lin Feng was even more far-fetched than that of Xiao Yan. Not only did he believe that the Mantra of the Great Oblivion was flawed, he also thought that the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void was fraught with imperfections.
The two spells of “Great” and “Void” from the Great Void Sect were imperfect and there were mistakes that could be resolved.
Once this news spread, there would be a huge uproar in the Divine Lands. Even the Barren Expanses would be rocked by this news.
However, those who were of lower cultivations wouldn’t understand the situation. Only those who were more senior would notice this.
As one’s cultivation increased, his understanding of the way of the Heavens and Earth would become deeper. Their comprehension of their own mantras would become more detailed and they would understand the truth of things better.
“The past cultivators of the Great Void Sect would have noticed this and tried to alleviate the problem.” Lin Feng thought, “Through years of trying to mend the flaws, there should be some progress on their side, considering the array of talents that they possess.”
“But now it seems like that their intention is to allow the two mantras to combine to form one. Not only will this solve the current problem, it will even go as far as to improve both mantras.”
But it’s just that this would impose a level of difficulty. Until now, the barrier was still stuck at the Immortal Soul Third Level. To progress further, the Great Void Sect had to continue researching further.
On the body of Elegant Cloud Holy Woman, Lin Feng could sense the presence of a mantra.
“However, the Great Void Sect is filled with talents.” Lin Feng smiled, “Even with flaws, the two spells of “Great” and “Void” are still legendary. They are one of the most outstanding mantras that are passed down generations after generations.”
“But it’s a pity that the Great Void Holy Man went to the Death Sea, Wen Chiyang met with difficulties in his life and the Tai Yi Holy Man was hurt by the Hades Emperor. Otherwise, we may be seeing a different scene than what it is now. If both mantras were not combined together to complement each other’s flaws and were perfected on their own, the both of them would be even more powerful.”
The more outstanding a mantra was, the deeper the level of the mantra. It was fine if the mantra did not have a flaw. But once there was an obvious flaw, mending it would be very difficult.
Lin Feng stood up from the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree. As he stepped forward, he had already reached the Tripitaka Block. Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao greeted him as they saw him. Lin Feng waved them off, “Spare the formalities.”
He came to a bamboo chair in the center of the top level of the Tripitaka Block and sat down. He looked at Xiao Yan and the others before laughing, “The few of you are having a heated discussion.”
Xiao Yan and the others looked at one another before they laughed. Shi Tianhao followed by saying, “Master, we were just talking about the powers and mantras of the Xuan Lin Holy Man and Cai Fengzhou.”
“While Cai Fengzhou’s Yin Yang Revolution Dao Fruit came from the Yin Yang Void Mantra and his powers came from the Yin Yang Void Mantra when he sparred against the Great Sun Avatar and I…”
Shi Tianhao picked his brows, “…But I can subtly sense the Mantra of the Great Oblivion on him. This is not based on anything but a feeling. He did not exhibit the powers of the Mantra of the Great Oblivion fully, but I just can’t shake this feeling off myself.”
Zhu Yi said from one side, “If it’s only him that has that feeling, it may be wrong. But I have the same feeling too, which means that we may be right.”
“I also feel the same thing for the Xuan Lin Holy Man. But it just happens to be the other way round, as I can subtly see the shadow of the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void behind the Mantra of the Great Oblivion.” Wang Lin followed by saying, “Since three of us feel the same way, it shouldn’t be wrong or a coincidence.”
He paused for a moment before continuing to say, “If the other party has the intention to misguide us and we can’t detect that, it only suggests that we are inferior to him, but…”
As he said, Wang Lin shook his head. He was not arrogant, but was not too dismissive of himself either.
If one was to say that he was too far off from the Zheng Yi Holy Man, he would admit it. But compared to the Xuan Lin Holy Man, they were almost at a similar level.
Lin Feng looked at the bunch of disciples but did not explain any further. On the other hand, he laughed and pointed at them, “Since all of you are so interested, all of you can try to figure this out.”
“While the two mantras that we are talking about have their own flaws, they were still indeed quite exceptional. Since all of you are good at figuring things out, I believe that the effect on your cultivations will be quite beneficial.”
Lin Feng laughed, “All of your current cultivations are beyond a certain level now. You can try to expand your understandings of different mantras, which may be very beneficial to your improvements in the future.”
“Not only just the mantras of the Great Void Sect, this logic applies to the mantras of other sects too. If you can discover a way to mend the flaws or to improve them, it will be very rewarding for you.”
Xiao Yan opened his mouth, “Master, we don’t have a lot of mantras at hand. For example, the two mantras that we were just talking about are one of them. We are just being paper generals now.”
Lin Feng shook his head, “Relying on the foundation of our sect, with a few clues, you can gain a lot. Although you don’t get the real deal, you are no longer just a paper general.”
“We don’t have to obtain the mantras of others or cultivate them. The important thing is what you gain in the process of figuring things out.”
Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao nodded their heads in acknowledgement, “We understand, Master.”
Lin Feng looked at them and he started laughing, “Why does this feel like a focus group discussion. Hehe, but this topic that we are broaching will not be well-liked by others…”
In an instant, Lin Feng’s urge to make jokes was about to be erupt, “Oh, what’s the name again? Celestial Sect Focus Group Discussion?”
He laughed while shaking his head, before he disappeared from the Tripitaka Block and returned to the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree. The door to the Starry Sea opened and he faced the starlight, continuing his cultivation.
At the top floor of the Tripitaka Block, Xiao Yan and the few others sent him off. After that, Xiao Yan turned to looked at the rest, saying, “While we are busy with our own cultivations, we can’t ignore that of our disciple.”
“Fortunately, the second-generation disciples are already on the right track. Furthermore, they are capable of supporting themselves and we can pass the third-generation disciples to them. But we still need to advise them at times.”
Shi Tianhao laughed, “Second and Third Senior both have avatars. This problem only applies to the both of us.”
Xiao Yan laughed too, “That’s true.”
Zhu Yi and Wang Lin both laughed lightly. As Wang Lin thought of something, inside the Forest Abode, the Great Satanic Avatar woke up from its rest state and stood up, before pushing the door and walked out.
