On their journey, thanks to Jiang Hongyan’s explanation, Xu Que finally figured out her purpose in going to the Myriad Buddhas Sect.
There were a lot of sects in the Xuanzhen Continent. The Tong Tian Nation, where mankind coexisted with demonic beasts, was the only country in this vast continent. Besides this nation, the Heaven Orc Tribe was another prodigious and solitary community. Then, there were also many big and small independent sects.
All these sects had their own territories, which didn’t belong to the Tong Tian Nation. The leaders of these sects were extremely powerful, at least as powerful as Qin Wei!
The Myriad Buddhas Sect was the most powerful one among these independent sects. Members of this sect were not real Buddhists. They cultivated the Buddhist magic arts and advocated Buddhist teachings. If they were described with the languages of Earth, they would be called fake Buddhism fans!
Moreover, the leader of the Myriad Buddhas Sect was one of several powerhouses who could rival the Emperor of the Tong Tian Nation. Many people were attracted to this sect by his reputation and came there to seek asylum. However, this time, Jiang Hongyan didn’t want to seek asylum in the Myriad Buddhas Sect. She wanted to get a Medication Treasure.
The Medication Treasure belonged to the Magic Artifacts. As an Immortal Elixir, it had evolved into a living Magic Artifact at last! Jiang Hongyan wanted to borrow the Celestial Concealment Herb, which was a Medication Treasure, from the Leader of the Myriad Buddhas Sect.
After activating this treasure, the user’s aura could be concealed. Even a Celestial’s soul could be concealed with this treasure, even if the Celestial was ten miles away. Jiang Hongyan knew clearly that her aura was being tracked by the Emperor, who would thus know whatever they did. It was almost hopeless to seize the God-realization Tree! Therefore, she planned to evade the Emperor’s detection with the Celestial Concealment Herb. Then, they could find an opportunity to sneak into the Imperial Palace and seize the God-realization Tree!
Xu Que agree with this plan entirely. But they still had a problem to solve.
“Little girl, as you said, Lord Zeng, the Leader of the Myriad Buddhas Sect, could rival the Emperor. How will he lend us the Celestial Concealment Herb easily?” Xu Que asked, for this was the problem which puzzled him.
Jiang Hongyan said with a faint smile, “Lord Zeng is an eccentric person. If someone comes to ask help from him, he will pose a difficult question to the visitor. If this question can be solved, he will satisfy the needs of the visitor. The herb is precious, but I am sure Lord Zeng will give it to us if we solve his question!”
“Hah, this will be an easy task. Because of your lucky nature, we have a good chance of winning!” Xu Que said delightedly.
It was not only because of Jiang Hongyan’s lucky nature. He could also activate his Lucky Aura when Lord Zeng posed his question. Maybe Lord Zeng could give them an easy question!
They continued to hurry to the west border of the Tong Tian Nation, almost without stopping because their current movements could definitely be sensed by the Emperor. Therefore, they had to arrive at the Myriad Buddhas Sect before the Emperor sent someone to stop them.
Half a month later, Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan arrived at the territory of the Myriad Buddhas Sect successfully. This place was in a desert, which was quite like the West Desert of the four continents, although the West Desert was desolate and this place was very prosperous. The entire area was like an ancient nation in the desert, which was full of high towers, temples, and markets, with people hurrying to and fro.
Of course, a place like this was always full of people of all walks of life, and was as chaotic as the border of the Tong Tian Nation. Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan were stopped by a team of people who were dressed like warrior monks when they stepped into the desert. Although these people wore clothes of warrior monks, they had hair on their head, which was unusual. However, according to the “Myriad Buddhas Sect” written on their chests, it was quite easy to figure out that this was a patrol of the Myriad Buddhas Sect, responsible for checking the cultivators entering their territory.
“Only devout Buddhists can enter the territory of the Myriad Buddhas Sect!” A warrior monk at the Crossing Calamity Stage said in a low voice.
Xu Que was stunned. He was about to say “Amitabha”, subconsciously putting his palms together. Then he noticed someone beside him took out a pendant of a golden Buddha statue. The patrol let this guy go immediately.
“I see!” Xu Que smiled, waving his hand to purchase a small box from the System Store. Then, he tied a rope to the box and hung it on his neck.
The warrior monk frowned and said seriously, “Only devout Buddhists can enter the territory of the Myriad Buddhas Sect!”
“I am a devout Buddhist! See, this is Tieguanyin!” Xu Que picked up the box on his chest and showed it to the warrior monks by opening the box cover. “See, this is the real Tieguanyin, which was produced in 1982!”
The warrior monks wanted to beat him up.
Others wear pendants of Buddha or Bodhisattva. Why do you hang a box of tea on your neck? Do you think you can muddle through by naming your tea Tieguanyin (The Iron Buddha)?
Do you think we are blind?
“That’s enough, little brat! Take this and follow me!” Jiang Hongyan said gently, as she gave him a set of Buddha beads.
“This is the authentic Tieguanyin!” Xu Que explained embarrassedly.
However, he didn’t want to make trouble in the Myriad Buddhas Sect, so he put on the Buddha beads immediately.
The warrior monks changed their expressions and let Xu Que go as they smiled at him nicely. From this, one could imagine their degree of the Buddhism in the Myriad Buddhas Sect.
When they entered, they found they were in a big market. Peddlers were selling all kinds of consecrated magic artifacts like the Buddha statue and Buddha beads, which they claimed were enchanted by Buddha power. When they moved deeper into the market, they found countless Buddha statues surrounded by burning joss sticks and candles, which were to be worshipped.
Xu Que got a feeling that he was in a big sacrificial ceremony.
However, Jiang Hongyan was not interested in these things. She led Xu Que to the highest tower that was located at the center of the market. It was a magnificent cloud-kissing Buddhist pagoda, which was built in front of a gigantic golden Buddha statue.
There were altogether 81 floors in this pagoda. Buddha statues were also built on the four tower eaves on each floor. Apparently, it was the place where the important people lived. However, a stream of people were going in and out of the pagoda all this time.
Jiang Hongyan stopped and asked confusedly, “Is this where Lord Zeng lives. Normally, nobody is allowed to enter this place. Why is it so bustling today?”
“Don’t worry. Let me ask someone!” Xu Que stopped a passer-by with a smile.
“Buddy, could you…”
Before he finished his words, the passer-by said hurriedly, “Amitabha, the Buddha said, ‘It can’t be said, it can’t be said!’” Then, the passer-by left directly.
Xu Que looked confused. “What the hell? Is it really necessary to make it so mysterious? I didn’t even finish my question!”
Seeing Xu Que’s reaction, Jiang Hongyan couldn’t help but smile. Then, she explained, “There is a rule here. We can’t talk about this secular world in front of the Buddha!”
“My God! What kind of rule is this? It is too superstitious! Forget it, let me do it directly!”
Xu Que shook his head and stepped forward seriously.
Jiang Hongyan was stunned by his action.
Before she had time to react, Xu Que raised his head and shouted at the pagoda abruptly, “Lord Zeng, the February Red of the Exploding Heavens Faction comes here to ask for medication from you!”
