Chapter 1054: Bright Radiance on Mount Kunlun!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Monk Da Kong, who was gravely injured in the Ying Sea, no longer had any way to improve further.
And right now, his zen mind was damaged and spell body was crushed. There was a huge possibility that it would be difficult for him to even reach the Golden Form Second Level now.
Even his Golden Form was filled with cracks. His current condition was extremely precarious.
But Liang Pan was helpless even in the face of this. He could only watch from one side. This helplessness he felt right now was even worse than seeing an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator under him being killed.
Monk Da Kong neglected the fact whether he could re-form his spell body in the future. He was entirely focused on the way of karma and the blasphemous theory propagated by the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
The cracks on the Golden Form mended themselves, but soon after, they cracked once more. As they cracked again, the cracks became even more serious than before.
“Way of karma…blasphemy…no cause and no effect…false! Tracing back the karmic line of time, there must be a reason! All life and matter in the world must be within karma! But…where’s the reason…where is it!” Monk Da Kong’s brows were raised. He was not only lost, but also filled with anger and ferocity.
He turned to look at the sky, shouting, “Celestial Sect of Wonders!”
However, it’s a pity that this roar could not alleviate the situation that he was in. On the other hand, his Golden Form opened with an even bigger and more frightening crack. It was about to tear him into half.
News about Monk Da Kong’s zen mind on the verge of crushing was covered up by the Great Zhou Empire.
But as the monks in the Great Zhou Empire kept their silence, it subtly allowed the other powers to discover that something was amiss. This left them perplexed about what was going on.
A lot of them had heavy hearts, as there were no monks who could refute the theory of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Did this prove that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was actually right?
“Is the Buddhist following so weak that no one can stand up for them?” In Xiling City, Prince Gunyang brows were raised and he sounded a little impatient.
While he said that, in the bottom of his heart, he was also doubtful. “Are the mantras of the Celestial Sect of Wonders so powerful? Besides having cultivators with immense powers, do they really possess cultivators with a deep comprehension of the great Dao too?”
Shi Yu remained silent and his expression was unclear. In his eyes, a complex radiance was flashing.
Prince Nanming, Prince Anliang, Prince Jingfang and all the powerful men in the Great Qin Empire were all silent.
At this moment, they were all doing the same thing. They were analyzing their own Secret Manual of the Five Imperial True Dragons!
They were analyzing chapter by chapter, using different angles to question it. They wanted to make sure that there was no flaw in the manual.
If a flaw was discovered, it could affect the Dao hearts of the cultivators if it was a foundational problem. But this was still better than the problem being discovered by outsiders.
“Do not be distracted by the unessential things. We must reflect on the foundation of the manual!” Shi Zongmao looked at Shi Zongyue, Shi Lin and the others, as he instructed.
He was doing the same thing too.
If there were flaws in the less critical aspects, the Dao hearts of the cultivators wouldn’t be affected. In fact, every mantra of a sect would have problems that occurred in less critical areas.
The bigger the power, the more outstanding the mantras were. The more it was like this, the more the mantras were being perfected as they were passed down.
With regards to mantras, exploration of the countless great Daos, improving them and perfecting them, this was a path that they had to take.
But if the foundation of a mantra was rocked, it would be like a building with a structural problem. This would cause the entire structure to be placed in peril.
After hearing Shi Zongmao’s words, Shi Zongyue and the rest turned gloomy. They nodded their heads but did not speak.
At this point, Shi Yu stood up and said slowly, “Let’s go to the Immortal Dragon City.
Shi Zongmao, Shi Zongtang, Shi Zongyue and the rest nodded their heads in unison. Shi Yu unleashed a talisman, which shone brightly in mid-space. Very soon, it turned into a light door, which revealed countless streaks of red lights.
The bunch of Great Qin Elders walked into the light door together.
This same thing happened in many places in the Divine Lands at the same time.
On the Purple Clouds Peak in Mount Thunder, where the Purple Clouds Sect was located, thick thunderclouds covered the peak of the mountain. Light could not pass through these thunderclouds and only the sound of thunder could be heard. They made some waves amidst the gloomy clouds.
In the main pavilion of the Purple Clouds Sect, the Thunderclouds Holy Man remained silent. In front of him, there was an elder, who was the Blue Pavilion Holy Man.
The both them looked at each other without speaking for some time. After a while, the Blue Pavilion Holy Man broke the silence and said, “Our Great Way of the Nine Heavens Divine Thunder has always been incomplete.”
The voice of the Thunderclouds Holy Man sounded like rumbling thunder, “While it may incomplete, it doesn’t mean that Grandmaster Hongdu’s mantra is flawed.”
The Blue Pavilion Holy Man laughed bitterly, “The problem lies in its incompletion. If we reflect on the foundation of it, I believe we’ll find some loopholes.”
The Grandmaster Hongdu was an independent cultivator during the Antiquity Age and was known as the Thunder Lord. Although he was an independent cultivator, he was very reputable during the Antiquity Age.
In terms of his thunder spells, only Emperor Tai in the human cultivation world could match up to him.
The Purple Clouds Sect was created by the Purple Clouds Holy Man, who was the eldest disciple under the Thunder Lord. As the Purple Clouds Holy Man created the sect, he developed the current lineage of mantras of the Purple Clouds Sect. But including the Purple Clouds Holy Man, the Purple Clouds Sect recognized the Thunder Lord as the original founder of the Purple Clouds Sect.
As the Thunderclouds Holy Man heard this, he was speechless. After a long while, he said softly, “We shall look at it again.”
The Blue Pavilion Holy Man sighed, “We can only do that now.”
They turned to the west, which was the direction towards Mount Kunlun. Right now, they looked at Mount Kunlun with complex expressions.
Yearning, Awe, Respect, Fear, Terror, there were countless emotions that gathered together.
Royal House of the Northern Tribes, Sword of Radiance Sect, Lightning Sword Sect and many of the friendly allies to the Celestial Sect of Wonders were clouded by the same gloom as the Purple Clouds Sect. As for the other sects, they felt even more repressed.
There were even a few who went to Mount Baiyun to know more about the Great Void Sect’s attitude towards the matter.
Among the monks who went to Mount Kunlun, a portion of them remained on Mount Kunlun to debate with the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Whereas another bunch of them could not handle the stress and escaped Mount Kunlun in terror.
Through this bunch of monks that escaped, the other powers obtained news from them. This left them even more confused. That’s because they could subtly sense that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was not spouting nonsense. The theory of the Celestial Sect of Wonders had indeed shook the foundation of the way of karma.
Even the powerful cultivators who had some understanding of Buddhism could resonate with the ideas of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
In the Samsara Sect, Mo Xiuluo, Shen Qifeng and a few others from the Path of Hell looked very perplexed.
“The perspective of the Celestial Sect of Wonders seems to be right.” Shen Qifeng sighed, “Karma is not the only thing that exists. Besides the way of karma, there are others.”
“Fortunately, we don’t view karma as the only thing like those Buddhist cultivators. Otherwise, our Dao hearts would be damaged too and may even be crushed.”
He sighed, “The Buddhist disciples will not accept defeat so easily. Now it seems like, besides being sharp in their battles, the Celestial Sect of Wonders is also very wise in terms of their understanding of the great Dao. They are not as shallow like how a new sect is normally like.”
“This Celestial Sect of Wonders is truly terrifying. They are complete. They won’t fall even if they somehow meet with a fall in their talents. As long as they can handle external pressure and come up with a few other exceptional talents, they are able to rise to the top again.”
Mo Xiuluo and the others did not speak, but they had the same opinion.
And on Mount Baiyun, Yun Yuanzhen and Yan Mingyue appeared very serious too. Yun Yuanzhen raved, “What a theory of blasphemy. The conundrum that has bugged the Divine Lands for ages has finally been solved by the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
“All these years, our sect could discover the irrationality in the way of karma, but we have never made any significant progress and were unable to rock the foundation of it. I must say that the Celestial Sect of Wonders is something else.”
“The Celestial Sect is even more frightening than the Mount Shu Sword Sect back then.”
Yan Mingyue said, “The thing is that the Celestial Sect is too terrifying that everyone has started to become very wary of them.”
The both of them were confused too. Acknowledging that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was right also meant that they recognized the powers of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. This also meant that the fear of the other powers in the Divine Lands towards the Celestial Sect of Wonders was also going to be common.
“Overall speaking, the Celestial Sect of Wonders has lost more than it has gained. While their mantras are powerful, they are in danger of being isolated. They have sparked the fear and hatred of others towards them.” Yun Yuanzhen said, “The situation is very delicate now. To the Celestial Sect of Wonders, the best-case scenario is for everyone else to stay away from them and keep cautious of them. The worst-case scenario is that everyone will view the Celestial Sect of Wonders as a common enemy.”
An indifferent lady appeared beside Yun Yuanzhen and Yan Mingyue. She was the Yu Yuan Holy Woman. She said coldly, “If the Great Thunderclap Temple was not destroyed, those who went to Mount Kunlun wouldn’t be these bunch of monks anymore. It will be the powerful ones.”
“Even if news didn’t spread, the Virtuous Zen Master had also suffered a setback. This is also a form of harm to the Celestial Sect of Wonders.” The Yu Yuan Holy Woman shook her head, “Lin Feng’s powers are boundless. He has always been a double-edged sword. Finally, he has hurt himself.”
“He needs to self-reflect and think about the wrongdoings he did in the past before he harms himself and everyone else!”
As they were speaking, the Yu Yuan Holy Woman, Yun Yuanzhen and Yan Mingyue were slightly stunned. Their gaze transcended void space in the direction of Mount Kunlun.
Over there, among the mountains of Mount Kunlun, a boundless light shot into the sky and shone in all directions!
