Sign-In Buddha's Palm - Chapter 5
Chapter 5: Back Mountain, Forbidden Area.
Edited by: Mochiusagi
“Great Accomplishment of [Invincible Vajra Divine Art]?”
The Court Heads’ eyes were all wide open when they heard this.
[Invincible Vajra Divine Art] is one of the Shaolin Temple’s Divine Art. Naturally they knew of this and even cultivated it themselves.
However, although it was easy to get started with [Invincible Vajra Divine Art], after successfully cultivating it, progressing was as difficult as Heavenly Ascension.
In simple terms, it was more than ten times more difficult to cultivate [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] to Great Accomplishment, than to raise an ordinary person who is not even a Grade 9 to the Upper Realm.
Of course, once the [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] does get to Great Accomplishment, the flesh body alone can challenge a Martial Artist of the Upper Realm. It is simply terrifying.
The only downside of cultivating [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] is that if you have the talent and aptitude, you can just use your time cultivating your Martial Dao Cultivation Base and reach the Upper Realm; hence reaching the same effect. The effort, resources and time saved would be enormous.
Therefore, in the Shaolin Temple, [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] belongs to the ‘unpopular Divine Art side’.
Everyone knows that [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] has great potential, but no dísciple is willing to spend time on it.
Because the effort is not proportional to the gain.
Unless the disciple is dull headed, he will not do so.
The Martial Monk Court Head turned his gaze to the Arhat Court Head: “It seems that the Arhat Court has a deeply hidden secret, I didn’t expect someone to achieve Great Accomplishment of [Invincible Vajra Divine Art].”
Among the Shaolin Temple Courts, the Arhat Court has the most research on [Invincible Vajra Divine Art].
If there was a disciple that could accomplish such a feat, it would be a disciple from the Arhat Court.
Moreover, the Bronze Array was also in the Arhat Court.
That’s why the Martial Monk Court Head referred to the Arhat Court Head.
Immediately after the Martial Monk Court Head said that, the other Heads and Abbot Hui Wen also turned their eyes to the Arhat Court Head.
The Arhat Court Head immediately replied: “This humble monk has no such disciple capable of such feat within the Arhat Court.”
When his words came out, Abbot Hui Wen and the Heads were taken aback.
If it was not a disciple from the Arhat Court, then which disciple has cultivated [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] to Great Accomplishment?
After a while, the Disciplinary Court Head tentatively asked: “Could it be that this is related to what happened five years ago?”
Five years ago, a Golden Buddha appeared in the sky above the Great Strength Hall. It’s powerful and holy radiance illuminated the entire Shaolin Temple.
At that time, Abbot Hui Wen and the Heads also thought about whether a disciple was favored by Buddha and who it was that caused that phenomenon.
However, even after they checked all the Great Strength Hall disciples at that time, they found nothing.
This incident has always been in Abbot Hui Wen’s heart, and until now, he was still observing it in secret.
It’s really a pity.
In the past five years, many geniuses have indeed appeared in the Shaolin Temple, but they were still far away to the extent that they can attract the Buddha’s favor.
“To think that this person actually cultivated [Invincible Vajra Divine Art]. But anyway, since he is still someone from the Shaolin Temple, if he doesn’t want to show himself, why bother…”
Abbot Hui Wen sighed slightly.
[Invincible Vajra Divine Art] specializes in the flesh body. Once it reaches Great Accomplishment, the cultivator’s control over his body will be terrifying. So if the other party intends to conceal himself, then unless he reaches Arhat Buddhahood, he will not be found out.
“Let us not mention this for now.”
Abbot Hui Wen was silent for a while, before continuing solemnly: “The new century is coming soon, all Courts must be ready.”
It’s almost been a hundred years…
When they heard this, the complexion of the Heads slightly changed. They looked towards the Back Mountain’s forbidden area with solemn expressions.
“That was close.”
“If I was a bit later, I would’ve been caught on the spot.”
Su Qin returned to the Handyman Court, finally able to relax.
In fact, with Su Qin’s strength, after breaking through the 108 Bronze Array, he was fully capable of preventing the bell from ringing.
But since Su Qin was obsessed with his breakthrough, he didn’t house such thoughts at all and it was too late when the bell started ringing.
“However, after [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] reached Great Accomplishment, changes happened…”
Su Qin muttered to himself.
At this moment, Su Qin’s aura had completely converged. He was no different from an ordinary person. Even if Abbot Hui Wen personally inspected him, it was impossible to find anything.
Only Su Qin knows the terrifying power he has right now.
Su Qin only released some of his body’s strength, but it already caused the 108 Bronze People to break…
If he uses his full power, one can just imagine how powerful his destructive power will be…
Su Qin was looking forward to it.
“Next, it’s time to make a breakthrough.”
Su Qin calmed down and made a decision.
Since entering Grade 4 a year ago, Su Qin had been suppressing his Cultivation Base and delayed his breakthrough.
It’s not because Su Qin doesn’t want to go further.
But because there is a big risk when entering the Upper Realm.
This kind of big risk has nothing to do with himself but rather, it comes from the outside world.
If a Martial Artist wants to step into the Upper Realm and become a Grade 3 Martial Artist, the first thing to do is to completely release the channel between oneself and the outside world; undergoing the cleansing of the World’s Essence Qi.
Only in this way can one truly become a Martial Artist in the Upper Realm.
However, how arrogant is the World’s Essence Qi? If it were just allowed to flood into one’s body without restraint, one simply cannot predict the damage it would cause.
Many Grade 4 Martial Artists exploded and died when they broke through because of this.
And even if one survives, one’s veins will be broken and will become a waste.
This was also the reason why high level Martial Artists are so rare today.
Generally speaking, if fifty Grade 4 Martial Artists would undergo breakthroughs, one person can succeed if he’s lucky.
Even for a Great Sect like the Shaolin Temple, breaking through the Upper Realm is the most important thing. It would need the personal support of the Court Head and the Abbot.
Therefore, Su Qin was very careful.
“When one breaks through and enters the Upper Realm, the biggest risk is that the World’s Essence Qi would flood into their body. If they make a mistake, they will explode to their death.”
“The reason for this is simply because their flesh body is too weak.”
“If the flesh body is strong enough that it can ignore the World’s Essence Qi, then the so-called risk is naturally not worth mentioning anymore.”
Su Qin’s thoughts explored the process: “But now that I have [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] at Great Accomplishment, and my flesh body alone can compete with the Upper Realm, there should be no problem in dealing with the World’s Essence Qi.”
Su Qin believed that the Great Accomplishment of [Invincible Vajra Divine Art] was sufficient to deal with the risk of breakthrough, but in the end he still decided to wait a few more months in order to completely foolproof his breakthrough.
He used these few months to Sign In and get more Marrow Cleansing Pill amongst other body strengthening medicinal pills.
He even temporarily gave up Signing In at the Scripture Pavilion, just to use the opportunity at the Bodhi Court.
During this period of time, Su Qin clearly felt that the Shaolin Temple seemed to be on guard.
And this vigilant atmosphere just intensified with passing time.
Even a Sweeping Monk like Su Qin, who has a very low sense of existence, perceived that something was wrong.
While sweeping the floor, Su Qin vaguely heard some disciples whispering words about ’a hundred years’ and ’Back Mountain forbidden area’.
“Back Mountain forbidden area?”
Su Qin thought.
Within the five years, Su Qin had traveled to all corners of the Shaolin Temple, and there were only a few forbidden places he could not visit.
Among them was the Back Mountain of the Shaolin Temple.
In the first four years, Su Qin was weak and did not dare to enter a forbidden area like the Back Mountain.
But after Su Qin entered Grade 4, he could vaguely perceive that within the Back Mountain, a powerful aura faintly exists.
But it’s also because of this, that Su Qin had never been close to the Back Mountain.
“No matter what happens, I’m just a Sweeping Monk. It has nothing to do with me.”
Su Qin thought about it for a while, and decided to just not care about it.
Anyway, unless the sky is falling apart, he needs not to be concerned. Moreover, as a Great Sect, the Shaolin Temple is still deep and unmeasurable. Su Qin only needs to guard himself and diligently sweep the floor.
