Chapter 1052: Dao Heart Crusher
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As Prince Jingfang spoke, everyone went silent.
In fact, in their hearts, they half-believed whatever that was going on.
After all, for the zen minds of the Virtuous Zen and Da Ning Zen Master to be hurt and their spell bodies to be crushed, they must have met with a traumatic experience that was so great that it could rock their foundations.
Even while Prince Gunyang sounded very assured, he was not so confident in his heart. Otherwise, he would not have been so agitated.
On many occasions, Lin Feng turned the impossible possible, which rang the alarm bells in the hearts of all of them around.
During the battle at Mount Shu, Lin Feng managed to point out the problem that even the Mount Shu Sword Sect was unaware of. Eventually, the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation was turned to the Heaven-Destroying Sword Formation. This caused the sword wills of the Mount Shu Sword cultivators to be crushed.
Today’s matter seemed like the repeat of what happened in the past.
Shi Yu, who was on the dragon throne, opened his mouth and said, “Regardless of what we say, from what it seems now, the Celestial Sect of Wonders’ losses will be greater than their gains.”
Everyone nodded their heads in agreement. Whatever that the Celestial Sect of Wonders did this time had pushed them to become the opposition of Buddhism.
If it was ten thousand years ago, the Great Thunderclap Temple might have declared war on the Celestial Sect of Wonders already. Even if they did not clash heavily, they were bound to be enemies.
While the Buddhist movement had weakened and the Great Thunderclap Temple had ceased to exist anymore, Buddhism was not eradicated yet. The Tathagata Dharmas of the Compass was still an exceptional Buddhist manual in the entire Grand Celestial World.
During the War of Buddha Annihilation, out of the last four Golden Form Third Level cultivators, three of them lost their lives, but one of the supreme elder, the Zhi Heng Zen Master, managed to escape.
Although the Great Thunderclap Temple was destroyed, a part of it was still alive. But because of the environment before, it had to maintain a low-profile.
And now that the Celestial Sect of Wonders had risen quickly and Lin Feng had been treating the Virtuous Zen Master very well, collecting sariras and Buddhist collections, the other powers in the Divine Lands all thought that the remaining powers of the Great Thunderclap Temple then might have committed to the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Thus, the powers of the Celestial Sect of Wonders managed to become greater and greater.
But now it seemed like the Celestial Sect of Wonders had shot themselves in the foot.
Even the Da Ning Zen Master was tempted by the Virtuous Zen Master to join the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But now, they seemed to have become enemies instead.
Whereas the Virtuous Zen Master was heavily injured because of this. His powers had declined and his future was unknown.
Disregarding any external influence, the influence of the Celestial Sect of Wonders was negatively impacted.
These were losses that could be calculated. The intangible losses that were difficult to be measured were bound to be greater.
The Virtuous Zen Master, who had contributed greatly to the sect, was reduced to such a state. For Zhuge Zhan, Miao Shihao, Kang Nanhua and the rest, how would they think?
The Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain, Xuan Heaven Seal and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade, how would these Mahayana level magic treasures with some degree of freedom think?
As for others who want to commit to the Celestial Sect of Wonders, would they not develop their doubts now?
Maybe everything was just an accident. The Celestial Sect of Wonders would not wish for something like this to happen, but if it happened again, who could ensure that he was not the one who was going to be implicated?
And to the Great Qin Empire, Purple Clouds Sect, Royal House of the Northern Tribes, Sword of Radiance Sect, Lightning Sword Sect and other powers, they might have the same misgivings too.
Thus, it was not only Shi Yu, Shi Zongmao, Shi Zongtang and the other Great Qin Empire that were monitoring the situation now. The rest of the human cultivation race were also watching the developments on Mount Kunlun.
Maybe it’s because they did not receive news, could not free themselves or perhaps even out of other considerations, the bunch of monks that headed towards Mount Kunlun now did not involve any Golden Form cultivators.
The highest cultivated of them all were only Monk Yuan Xin and Monk Yuan Cheng, who were both in the Advanced Nascent Soul Stage.
Under their leadership, the bunch of monks gathered together. Without making a sound, they broke through space and flew towards the north foot of Mount Kunlun, where the Yun Peak and Mirror Lake were.
Although none of them were in the Golden Form, they still possessed some stature on their own.
The slightest movement in the Mount Kunlun area could be detected by the Celestial Sect of Wonders. As the monks gathered, Lin Feng and his disciples would be informed naturally.
Zhu Yi and Wang Lin stood on Mount Yujing, as their vision transcended void space, landing on the mountains of Mount Kunlun.
“Tian Tai, Tian Chi, remember to proceed with in proper sequence.” Zhu Yi said. Behind him, Yang Tie and Li Xingfei bowed and acknowledged, “Yes, Master.”
The two of them left the mountain and proceeded towards Yun Peak. Zhu Yi then turned to Wang Lin, “Although what’s happening now is expected after what happened to Da Ning Zen Master, we did not expect things to develop till this stage at the beginning.”
“However, the logic has become clearer and clearer. This is a path we have to tread.”
Wang Lin nodded his head, “Let me take a look at the Virtuous Zen Master.”
Yang Tie and Li Xingfei descended Yun Peak and came to the Mirror Lake. The bunch of monks came before them and greeted them as a form of respect.
Although the lack of appearance of Wang Lin, Zhu Yi and the rest left these monks slightly displeased, they could do nothing about it. After all, the only ones befitting of the status of Wang Lin and the others were only characters like the Da Ning Zen Master and Monk Da Kong.
And while Yang Tie and Li Xingfei were only in the Aurous Core Stage, their statuses were now low. They were both the First Disciples of Zhu Yi and Wang Lin respectively.
There was a young monk who thought, “If we rile the both of you, I wonder if your Masters can still hold back?”
Yuan Xin remained calm, “We are here for no other reason than to discuss about the way of karma after hearing that your sect has a different interpretation.”
Yang Tie turned to Li Xingfei and Li Xingfei nodded her head. She answered calmly, “We are aware of your intentions. Thus, we are here to receive all of you.”
“I wonder if all of you are paying a visit to the Virtuous Zen Master, or are all of you going straight to discuss about the matter?”
Yuan Xin and Yuan Cheng shook their heads, “We can discuss straightaway. Things are not in a hurry with regards to Elder Virtuous Zen.”
In fact, some of the monks thought that the Virtuous Zen Master deserved what he got for asking for trouble. But the Virtuous Zen Master was a respected figure, thus they were not in a position to comment too much.
Yang Tie said, “Please forgive us for our unpleasant hosting.” After they finished conversing, the bunch of monks were guided to Yun Peak and came to the main pavilion.
After entering the pavilion, they took their seats and faced Yang Tie and Li Xingfei. They did not cause any trouble and they only spoke to Yuan Xin and Yuan Cheng.
“With regards to your words, I’m afraid that I can’t agree with them.” Yuan Cheng clasped his palms and recited a Buddhist phrase, “There are many weird occurrences in this world. We are also not ignorant individuals.”
“Over these years, I have been living in the rural areas. I have seen many of such things too. While they may seem ridiculous and without reason, they actually conceal the truth and ordinary people just can’t figure the truth out.”
Yuan Cheng continued saying, “For example, there was a guy that had a dream. He was bitten by a huge worm, which caused him to be jolted from his sleep every night. Because he couldn’t sleep well, he became more and more frail.”
“Once, he was killed in his dream by that huge worm. After he awoke, he found a small worm that was around the size of his thumb and which looked like the one in his dream by the side of his window. The worm was already dead and the man no longer had any nightmares.”
“There were stories that he killed the worm in his dream, but the worm was nothing more than a demonic matter. It could only enter dreams to harm people and their souls, but it was in fact very weak. If it was hurt by others in their dreams, its own soul would be destroyed and it would die for real.”
Yuan Cheng looked at Li Xingfei and Yang Tie, saying, “Some things can’t be explain using karma because we don’t understand karma. It’s not that karma doesn’t exists.”
Yuan Xin opened his palms, “Please take a look. These are two steel balls with roughly similar weights.”
He was holding a steel ball in each of his palm. They looked the same too. Yuan Xin then said, “To a normal person, these two steel balls cannot be differentiated in terms of their weight. Even with the most accurate scale, the difference can’t be told.”
“Even for a Qi Cultivation Stage cultivator and even a Foundation Establishment Stage cultivator, he can’t sense nor weigh them accurately.”
“But this does not mean that they are of the same weight.” Yuan Xin said, “I myself, or even the both of you, can sense the slight difference in weight between both balls.”
Li Xingfei and Yang Tie looked at each other before smiling. Li Xingfei said, “But when we are looking in the perspective of a normal person, or even a Qi Cultivation or Foundation Establishment Stage cultivator, we can’t tell the difference in the weight of the two balls.”
Yuan Xin smiled too, “You are right. But it’s hard to find such steel balls. Most of the steel balls can be weighed now.”
Li Xingfei shook her head, “But there is also another situation. That is, if we keep using the same method, then no matter when, there will be some steel balls that can’t be differentiated in terms of their weight.”
The bunch of monks shook their heads, “That’s impossible.”
Someone was even laughing in his heart, “For so long, no one shook the foundation of Buddhism, not even the Great Void Sect. If you want to make noise, wait till the Celestial Sect of Wonders has been around for thousands of years first!”
Li Xingfei remained calm and pointed, causing a light projection to appear.
A while later, on Mount Yujing, Lin Feng thought of something and he turned towards void space at the bottom of the mountain. He then picked his brows.
“Firstly, Mount Shu’s fragile heart was broken by me. Now, it’s the turn of Buddhism. But seriously, I’m not here to crush the Dao hearts of others.”
“Don’t tell me that I’ll be associated as a Dao heart crusher in the future. This is not a nice nickname to have.”
He shook his head and looked at the Virtuous Zen Master, “Zen Master, let’s continue.”
