Translated by: Ken

Brahmaheart Sect temple’s enormous Buddhist power seemed to have found a drainage and rushed into the iron bar, making it’s temperature go higher and higher, but Hai Long could not feel any of the heat, a yellow glow took shape and surrounded his body, which gave Hai Long an auspicious look, giving him a look of purity. Hai Long was fazed, the scenery in front of his eyes suddenly changed to the complicated flowing river back when he was cultivating. The only difference was that this time there was much more yellow coloured water, both colours green and yellow did not clash as they flowed smoothly along the river as usual. With some skill, the green and yellow coloured river current slowly merged together and spread across his whole body, as Hai Long’s weariness wore off, his vision grew clear and thoughts became pure. Feelings of enlightenment began to come to him, it was as though he understood a lot, as he put his palms together, three lotus-shaped lights materialised and floated above his head.
Cloudwake stared dumbfoundedly at Hai Long, because of the thick buddhist qi, even he gained some benefits, his body quickly absorbed the buddhist qi around Hai long, with this bit of effort, the accumulation of buddhist qi was actually as much as when he cultivated for a month. He muttered “This, what is happening? This is impossible! Even if his body’s innate nature was buddhist, he shouldn’t be able to attract so much buddhist light and buddhist power. These three flowers represent a special cultivation style of my Buddhist Sect, Reverends Elysian and Waterstop, do you two know what’s going on?”
Reverend Elysian and Waterstop were both stunned as well, they did not understand why such a thing would happen to Hai long. Reverend Elysian asked “Sect Patriarch, what’s happening to Hai Long, why will such a strong Buddhist nature appear on his body, as if he has attained an extremely high level in the buddhist cultivation realm. Could it be that he has exceptional talent and affinity with your sect?”
Sect Patriarch Cloudwake said seriously, “Two Reverends, if you all are willing, I can take our Brahmaheart Sect’s treasures, the Brahmaheart 9 relics for an exchange, I really wish to take this kid as my disciple, if he can join my Brahmaheart Sect, his achievements in the future will definitely surpass mine. I seek permission from you two Reverends.”
Reverend Elysian and Reverend Waterstop glanced at each other, they both gave off difficult expressions, of course they know what kind of treasure the 9 Relics of the Brahmaheart Sect was, they were definitely comparable to immortal grade artifacts, and could be said to be the foundation of the Brahmaheart Sect, for Cloudwake to be willing to exchange this for Hai Long, it clearly shows how highly he values Hai Long. Lightly sighing, Reverend Elysian said, “Sorry Sect Patriarch, Hai Long belongs to Skyrock’s line of disciples, and we do not have the authority to decide on such matters. If you are really keen, you can visit Heaventake peak and visit my Senior Brother Heaventake to discuss, he’s the only one who can make decisions on behalf of the sect.” In order not to offend Cloudwake, she could only kick the ball into her Senior Brother’s court.
Cloudwake shook his head and replied, “Sorry, my two Daoist friends, I’m truly too rash. I can tell that this child is gifted, how can Reverend Heaventake not see it? One must know that, regardless of whether one cultivates the path of Immortality or Buddhism, to find a genius disciple is even more important than finding an immortal stage artifact, Reverend Heaventake will definitely reject my request. However this child has affinity with buddhism, I am able to give him some pointers. Seems like your Cloudlink Sect has been favoured by the heavens! It’s no surprise that you’re one of the Seven Great Sects.
The green, yellow lights within Hai Long’s body were like water returning to a lake, as his body shuddered, his state of mind returned, and he felt his body experiencing a cool feeling, the power in his body did not increase, it was the same as before, however it was like the previous occasion when his cultivation ended, he felt something additional in his body. The little iron bar in his chest regained it’s original state and the burning sensation had already vanished, before Brahmaheart Sect Patriarch Cloudwake and the other 3 Ancestors, as well as Reverends Elysian and Waterstop all turned their attention to his body, Gyah! Why are all of you looking at me? Did something happen?”
Cloudwake’s aged palm pressed onto Hai Long’s shouders, a warm energy suddenly spread throughout his body, Cloudwake furrowed his brows and said “Weird, you clearly absorbed a huge amount of Buddhist qi, how come your cultivation is still stuck at the Crouching Tiger stage? This shouldn’t be the case! From the three flowers materialising on top of your head just now, your culivation should have at least surpassed the Fetal Formation stage.”
Hai Long scratched his head and said “Sect Patriarch, the breakthroughs we cultivators experience are very slow, isn’t it good to do it step by step? Too much of an increase in a short time might not be a good thing.”
Cloudwake grinned from ear to ear and said “You’re truly blessed by heaven! Your future potential cannot be underestimated. Alright, let’s continue in the main hall. When there’s a chance in the future, this old monk must definitely have a chat with my young Daoist friend here.” Yellow light started flowing under his urging, everything around him flew forward, and in the next moment, they have already arrived at Brahmaheart Sect temple’s main hall. The lofty main hall was about a hundred metres tall, a huge board hung in the centre where 4 big words could be seen —— Brahmaheart Temple Sacred Hall. Cloudwake made a few inviting gestures, then stepped ahead with Reverends Elysian and Waterstop, as Hai Long and the other 3 ancestors followed behind.
Brahmaheart temple was gargantuan, just the main hall alone occupied thousands of square metres, hundreds of Brahmaheart disciples surrounded the area, all of them stood at attention, their demeanour respectful and solemn. In the inner portion of the main hall, tens of males and females were sat on simple wooden chairs, once they saw Cloudwake return, they all stood upright. There were four male and three females that caught Hai Long’s attention the most since their bodies gave off an imposing aura, clearly showing that their cultivation was deep. The others, are disciples from their line of teaching.
Cloudwake led Elysian and Waterstop in front of everyone and smiled “Let me introduce to everyone, this is Cloudlink Sect’s Daoist Elysian and Daoist Waterstop.”
Hai Long paid attention to these seven people, two of the middle-aged people donning purples robes let out a startled expression when they saw Reverend Waterstop, hearing Sect Patriarch Cloudwake’s introduction, all of them immediately paid their respects and said, “Thousand Wisdom Valley’s Youngcrane and Purplecrane pay their respects. Daoist Waterstop, its been a thousand years, but your looks are still ever so beautiful!”
Reverend Waterstop gave a slight smile and replied, “You two Daoists flatter me, in these thousand years, your cultivations increased so much, Waterstop cannot compare.”
The well-built Daoist Youngcrane standing on the left smiled “Daoist, you flatter, how can we possibly compare to you? For you two Daoists to grace this Seven Sect gathering, it has truly increased the power of the righteous forces! If there’s a chance, we must definitely learn a thing or two from you.” From their tone, Youngcrane and Purplecrane’s respect for Reverend Waterstop should have took root a thousand years ago.
Sect Patriarch Cloudwake said “It seems like you two Daoists are acquainted with Daoist Waterstop, this is great. Daoist Elysian, Daoist Waterstop, let me introduce Pentashine Immortal Grotto’s Patriarch Woodpine.
Hai Long’s group of three turned their attention to where Sect Patriarch Cloudwake was pointing. It was a tall and broad old man who seemed relaxed, but his face was expressionless. Reverend Elysian bowed and said, “Seems like our Daoist friend here is one of Pentashine Immortal Grotto’s patriarchs, Elysian pays her respects.”
Woodpine thornily stood there and did not return the greeting, he faintly said “Daoist Friend Elysian, don’t stand on ceremony, This is actually my first time meeting someone from the Cloudlink Sect, it is as the saying goes, it’s better to meet than just hear of the name.”
Reverend Elysian ignored his sarcasm and smiled, “Our Cloudlink Sect is just a small sect, how can we possibly compare with the head of the seven great sects, the Pentashine Immortal Grotto?”
Cloudwake sensed that the situation didn’t feel right, so he hurriedly introduced the next person, “This is Pentashine Immortal Grotto’s Patriarch Watercharm.” Watercharm was one of the three females that Hai Long noticed, on the surface she seemed like she was as youthful as Reverends Elysian and Waterstop, her face was cold and icy, hearing Cloudwake’s introduction, she faintly nodded towards Elysian and Waterstop, Reverend Elysian did not say any more, she just faintly returned the greeting.
Looking at this situation, Hai Long thought in his heart, this Pentashine Immortal Grotto is truly arrogant, it was as though everyone owed them thousands of taels of silver. What’s so great about them. (Taels were the currency used in ancient China, they were ingot-shaped).
Sect Patriatch Cloudwake went beside another pair of male and female cultivators, and introduced them together “These are Heavenask School’s Daoist Xingtian and Fullmoon School’s Daoist Blackrain. Both of them are Daoist Companions.
Looking at the two people in front, Reverend Elysian couldn’t help but shudder in her heart, these seemingly normal people on the surface, both have a cultivation of at least the Dawn Raising Stage. If they join hands, not only will their cultivation surpass the Infallible stage, even though they are wedded as a Dao couple, they still have such high cultivations, it’s truly not a simple task. This proves that their aptitude is terrifying, that’s why they have today’s achievements, they are definitely people who call the shots in the Heaventask and Fullmoon schools. With a smile, Reverend Elysian said “These two Daoist friends have such high cultivations, it is as your fame precedes.”
Xingtian and Blackrain’s attitudes were better than the Patriarchs of the Pentashine Immortal Grotto, Xingtian replied with a smile “Reverend Elysian’s cultivation isn’t simple either, with my eyes, I can’t really tell your cultivation.” A disciple behind Xingtian said with a low voice, “Seems like their cultivation isn’t even as high as mine, of course Master can’t see through it.” Although his voice was low, those present were all experts and could hear him clearly.
Xingtian wrinkled his brows and rebutted, “Audacious, this isn’t your place to speak.” As he turned back to Reverend Elysian, he said, “Daoist, I apologise for my disciple’s disrespect.”
Reverend Elysian seemed to have already expected this situation, and didn’t mind as she smilingly said, “Dao brother it’s alright.” Although she could bear with it, the Hai Long behind her couldn’t, his blood boiled as the warnings given by Elysian and Waterstop seemed to be long gone, he angrily rebuked, “If the son isn’t taught, it’s the father’s fault, if the teaching isn’t strict, it’s the teacher’s fault. Is this how your Heaventask school teach your disciples?” These words are what he repeatedly learnt from the old scholars back in the village, in his anger he couldn’t help but use it.
