Chapter 1959: Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan
While the entire Ancientspirit Galaxy was in an uproar due to Su Mo’s crazy behavior, Su Mo was already at Myriad Worlds Mountain.
He did not stop at Myriad Worlds Mountain and he headed toward the Ah Mi Galaxy through the wormhole.
He couldn’t delay in making the trip. When he mentioned that he would be going to the Ah Mi Galaxy back then, many people had heard about it.
Since he had appeared before the people, he had to head over as soon as possible. If news about his appearance spread, he would not be able to go to Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain.
Su Mo did not have anyone to talk to along the way. After about one month, he came to the Ah Mi Galaxy.
He then flew toward Xu Mi Star.
After another two weeks, he reached Xu Mi Star and flew straight to Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain.
Su Mo knew the location of Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain. As long as he followed the direction of the mind power that was floating in the void, he would be able to reach Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain.
Two hours later, a mountain appeared in front of Su Mo. The mountain was sky-high and it shot up to the clouds.
Golden light lingered on the mountain peak, making it look illusory. Su Mo could hear chanting sounds rumbling continuously from the mountain peak.
There were many buildings on the mountain peak and they looked different from the ordinary sects. They were not beautiful palaces that were made of gold or copper, but ordinary buildings like the temples.
Su Mo did not slow down. He flew to the foot of the mountain and landed at the entrance of the mountain.
There were two young monks guarding the entrance and their cultivation levels were only at the Martial Royal Realm.
“Amitabha. Sir, may I know why you are at Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain?” One of the young monks with rosy cheeks and delicate features asked Su Mo, his palms placed together.
“I would like to see Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen!” Su Mo cupped his fist and replied politely.
“May I know your name and your purpose in seeing Senior Brother Xuan Zhen?” The young monk asked.
“My name is Su Mo. Master Xuan Zhen invited me over!” Su Mo replied.
“What?” When the young monk heard what Su Mo had said, he dropped his jaw and stared at Su Mo in disbelief.
The other young monk did likewise as he was shocked.
“Are you Su Mo?” The young monk looked curiously at Su Mo as though he had seen a rare treasure.
The young monk was shocked to hear Su Mo’s name. Ever since Su Mo was under the True Demon Hunting Order, he had disappeared. The young monk was thus surprised to see Su Mo standing in front of him.
Has the True Demon Hunting Order been removed from him?
Su Mo was silent. He was surprised to learn that he had become so well-known.
He simply nodded at the young monk’s question.
“Please wait while I inform Senior Brother!” The young monk whooshed up the mountain and he thought that Su Mo was an impostor.
He is courting his own doom by pretending to be Su Mo. He must be tired of living.
Su Mo did not wait for long. After a while, the young monk was back.
However, two other people were with him.
One of them was Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen, who was a little fat, and the other was an old monk.
The old monk was thin and he looked aged. His beard and eyebrows were white and he was in a purple kasaya. There was no aura exuding from his body.
Very quickly, the three of them came to the entrance of the mountain and they stood in front of Su Mo.
“Amitabha. Su Mo, you are finally here!” Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen placed his palms together and bowed at Su Mo.
“Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen, we have not seen each other for three years and you still look the same!” Su Mo smiled and bowed at Xuan Zhen.
“Su Mo, this is Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan!” Xuan Zhen lifted up his head and introduced Su Mo to the old monk who was beside him.
“Greetings, elder!” Su Mo immediately greeted the old monk. If he was a Lord Bodhisattva, that meant that he was an Empty God Realm master.
“Hmm. Come with me to the mountain!”
Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan looked indifferent. He lifted his head and turned around to walk up the mountain.
Su Mo and Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen followed behind him and went up Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain.
Soon, they came to an ancient palace.
Other than a huge Buddha statue, there were several Futons on the ground.
The Buddha statue was made of pure gold and it was around 15 meters tall. The statue did not have a face and it looked weird.
When Su Mo saw the Buddha statue without a face, he was baffled.
“Su Mo, this is Ru Tian Buddha, the founder of Buddhism.” Xuan Zhen told Su Mo with a smile when he saw Su Mo staring at the statue.
“I see!” Su Mo was enlightened. It was the founder of a belief. He then bowed at the statue sincerely.
When Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen saw Su Mo behaving respectfully, he nodded. He then looked at the statue with great respect and said, “Ru Tian Buddha was one of the Supreme Beings during the Primordial Age. He was on par with the Chaos God Emperor, the Reincarnation Heavenly Sovereign, the Chaotic Archosaur, and the Undying Divine Sovereign.”
“Is that so?” When Su Mo heard the Reincarnation Heavenly Sovereign being mentioned, he became alert.
“Take a seat!” Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan signaled Su Mo to take a seat on the Futon.
When Su Mo and Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen saw it, they sat down cross-legged on the Futons.
“Bodhisattva Xuan Zhen, I have come to Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain as promised. May I know why you have asked me to come over?” Su Mo asked as he looked at Xuan Zhen. Although he had a favor to ask of Xuan Zhen, he did not say it outright.
When Xuan Zhen heard Su Mo’s question, he did not say a word but he looked at Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan.
When Su Mo saw his response, he looked at Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan as well and waited for him to speak.
Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan looked calm and his gaze was deep. After pondering for a while, he looked at Su Mo and said, “Su Mo, first of all, congratulations. You broke away from the True Demon Hunting Order and you are now a Martial Sage!”
Su Mo was silent. He simply sat quietly and listened to Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan.
“I have heard a lot about you. You have made many enemies. The Sorcerer Tribe, True Demon Tribe, and even Sun Moon Tribe are your enemies. Are you willing to convert to Buddhism? If you are willing to do so, we will help you resolve all your feuds!” Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan said.
When Su Mo heard what Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan had said, he was dumbstruck. Convert to Buddhism and become a monk? That is impossible!
Moreover, he would not be joining any forces in the Infinite Region from then on.
Given his current achievement, he did not need the help of any of the forces.
“Elder, I am sorry that I will have to disappoint you!” Su Mo shook his head and turned Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan down.
He did not pretend to accept the suggestion and ask Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain to help him remove the curse.
As to resolving the feuds, Su Mo had never thought of that. Although Xu Mi Spiritual Mountain is powerful, will they be able to get the Sorcerer Tribe to forget about the past feud? Are they able to get Sun Moon Tribe to hand Qingxuan over to him?
Su Mo felt that there was only a slim chance for them to do so and it was almost impossible.
When Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan heard Su Mo’s reply, he sighed and said, “Since you are unwilling to convert to Buddhism, are you willing to be cleansed?”
“How are you going to do it?” Su Mo asked.
“You have an immense desire to kill and it is not good for you. You need to cleanse and purify your soul!” Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan said.
“Elder, you have made it sound so serious. I don’t think that I have an immense desire to kill. I only kill my enemies!”
Su Mo shook his head and continued, saying, “There is a saying, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. You reap what you sow. I think elder knows this better than I do.”
“You are right to say that, but everyone will get his just desserts. If you kill too many people, it may lead you to enter into eternal punishment!” Lord Bodhisattva Ming Tan said.
“Elder, please do not worry. I always do things with a conscience. Even if my body and soul are to perish one day, I will have no regrets!” Su Mo replied firmly.
