In the spatial zone in the Buddha Statue, the illusory Jiang Chen wasn’t the same as the real Jiang Chen outside. He sat in the sky with a golden light illuminating out of his body. Those were the pure Buddha lights. At this moment, Jiang Chen was like a Buddha. His Qi had undergone tremendous changes and became divine.

Most importantly, it was due to the light coming from Jiang Chen’s fingertips. It was The Edifying Light that he had acquired. There was still a big difference between this light and the light that was casted by Buddha. Jiang Chen’s Edifying Light was merely an illusion which was constantly solidifying.

Due to the changes that Jiang Chen was going through, the entire ninth floor of the ancient tower was blanketed by a golden light, producing buzzing noises. Nangong Wentian and Guo Shao Fei were shaken, awoken from their state of retreat. They approached Jiang Chen together with Big Yellow.

“A very strong Buddha light. I have never sensed such a strong Buddha aura from little Chen’s body before. By the looks of it, he has already cultivated The Edifying Light, turning himself into the embodiment of Buddha.”

Nangong Wentian was startled.

“Brother Jiang really is a rare genius that only appears every ten thousand years. There is nothing that he can’t master. Tyrant, on the other hand, is a true genius of Buddha Sect, his cultivation speed was the fastest, even before condensing The Edifying Light. This made people speechless.”

Guo Shao Fei couldn’t help but shook his head as he heaved a sigh. As a core disciple and a popular figure of Sky Ranking, he had a distinguished reputation in the sect. Despite the fact that he had already heard of Jiang Chen’s name before when he turned the inner sect upside down, he didn’t put that matter at heart because their gap was just too wide. However, after getting in touch with Jiang Chen in the Death Mountain, he had truly witnessed Jiang Chen’s fearsomeness. Also, he was confident that with Jiang Chen’s presence, the sect would become a super large sect some time in the future.

“Look at his finger, guys. Seems like this is the Edifying Light. As expected, it looks very holy.”

Big Yellow said. Both his and Nangong Wentian’s gaze were fixed on Jiang Chen’s golden finger. It was The Edifying Light condensed by Jiang Chen. It was as weak as a small serpent now, but the Buddha light became richer while the Edifying Light became brighter gradually.

That was an extremely brilliant light. Seeing the light for a period of time brought a stinging sensation to their eyes. This was the supreme light in the Buddha Sect. The light that could edify all sentient living things. The three of them could feel the holiness of the light, unlike Mo Sang, who felt suppressed by it. In short, this light could only affect devils and crooked beings. It didn’t have any suppressive effects on the three of them. This was the path of the Edifying Light, specifically used against the devils.

“Tyrant’s body also has some movements, but not as big as Jiang Chen’s. Seems like he has also obtained the cultivation method but hasn’t solidified it yet.”

Big Yellow looked at Tyrant who was sitting cross-legged. He had to say, no matter how you look at it, Tyrant really looked like a n.o.ble senior monk while cultivating. People who didn’t know him well would be captivated by his deceitful impression and would be entrapped by it eventually.

In a blink of an eye, a few hours had pa.s.sed. The Edifying Light on Jiang Chen’s fingertip had become visible. In the illusory zone, inside the Buddha Statue, the illusion of Jiang Chen slowly opened his eyes. At the same time, the Jiang Chen on the ninth floor too opened his eyes, as two rays of light flowed out of it, his mouth revealing a smirk. After the long hours of retreat, he was finally able to grasp The Edifying Light and condensed it fully.


Jiang Chen withdrew his spiritual force and Divine Sense in the Buddha statue. The Buddha light disappeared and entered his body.

“Haha, Little Chen, you are truly amazing, you can even master The Edifying Light.”

Big Yellow laughed with an excited face. Although he didn’t know the power of the Edifying Light, he believed that it would be extraordinary as it was found on the ninth floor. Not to mention, Jiang Chen and Tyrant thought highly of it.

“The Edifying Light…”

As Jiang Chen just started to speak, his face changed instantly. A brilliant light rushed out of the Buddha statue. It was so fast that Jiang Chen didn’t have the chance to react. Very quickly, he was totally enveloped by it.

The next moment, the light swoosh and faded., it disappeared along with Jiang Chen.

“Little Chen.”

“Junior Jiang.”

Nangong Wentian and Guo Shao Fei exclaimed with a panicked expression. They had no idea what just happened. It happened too quickly. If they were him, they would also be unable to react.

“Dammit, what? What happened? The light rushed out from the Buddha statue and little Chen was taken by it.”

Big Yellow also couldn’t figure out what just happened as it was just too fast. Furthermore, they were caught unprepared. Who would have thought that something like this would happen? They separately casted their Divine Sense to find any clues about the previous incident, but they couldn’t find one.

“What now? Will junior Jiang in danger?”

Guo Shao Fei sounded a little worried.

“Danger is everywhere under the Death Mountain and is hard to antic.i.p.ate, but little Chen is really exceptional and always had good luck. He can overcome any obstacles, so it may not be that troublesome.”

Nangong Wentian nodded. Despite saying that, he still felt a sense of worry. This was the Death Mountain after all and it was full of uncertainties. For instance, when he was trapped in the herb garden. If the Death Mountain wasn’t opened every thirty years, he might have stayed here forever.

“I don’t think we need to be worried. The Death Mountain only opens once every thirty years.The danger of the future events in Death Mountain will be a lot less now. Most of the dangers were the ancient sealing formations and the dark souls. No formation can stop little Chen and as for the Dark Souls, I guess you guys have already witnessed the power of his flames, which is very deadly to the dark souls. Plus, they have already condensed The Edifying Light and this light is also deadly to the evil dark souls.”

Big Yellow said. He was very confident on his friend. Up till now, his confidence for Jiang Chen had never wavered. He knew how much of a freak Jiang Chen was, he was someone who possessed an extraordinary amount of luck. If he could die so easily, he would have died a few hundred times by now.

“Then, what do we do now?”

Nangong Wentian asked.

“There is still half a month left before the next opening of the Death Mountain. Thus, we have to move on, we have to go deeper into the Death Mountain to gather as much treasure as possible.”

Big Yellow said.

“I agree. Not to mention, the exit of the Death Mountain will be at the center most part. So, if we can’t reach the inner part of the mountain, we don’t even need to think about getting out of here.”

Guo Shao Fei said. His knowledge about the legendary Death Mountain would naturally be more accurate than the others since he was a native of Mysterious Domain.

“We have to wait for Tyrant to awaken before leaving. We can’t leave him alone here. This dude has already started to grasp The Edifying Light, if we leave now, he wouldn’t have any protection. If someone interrupts him, he would suffer great losses.”

Big Yellow said. When Jiang Chen wasn’t around, he had to be the backbone of the team. This dog could be imprudent in their everyday lives, but he paid attention to every single detail.

Nangong Wentian and Guo Shao Fei nodded. They glanced at Tyrant to check his status and decided that it’s not yet the right time to leave. Leaving Tyrant here all by himself was going to worry them.


Jiang Chen was taken away by a ray of light. It brought him to another spatial zone without harming him.

He was thrown into a spatial zone. After stabilizing his body, he started to a.n.a.lyse the environment. He saw numerous mountains with black summits everywhere, surrounding the entire place. Every summit seemed to have existed since the ancient times. Some were in ruins. Dark and death Qi filled the air, precisely matching with the Qi in the other spatial zones of the Death Mountain.

“Seems like this is also a spatial zone of the Death Mountain. I have no idea what that light beam was. What is the purpose of bringing me here? it is probably related to the matter of mastering The Edifying Light.”

Jiang Chen antic.i.p.ated silently. Everything here looked very strange, there wasn’t anything else here but him alone. Despite that fact, he didn’t look panicked or nervous. As the Greatest Saint, he had a firm spirit and composure which is incomparable to any ordinary human being.

He still hadn’t found anything. He couldn’t continue to stay here pa.s.sively, waiting for something to happen, he needed to find a way out.

With a single jump, he travelled a hundred miles and reached the center most part of the spatial zone, he entered within the mountains. Being an audacious man, he didn’t give a d.a.m.n to the dark and death Qi here before entering the gloomy mountains.


As expected, a hoa.r.s.e sound was heard. It wasn’t anything new to him, it was the sound of the dark souls. He raised his head and saw three terrifying dark souls not too far away from here. Their hollow eyes were filled with ghostly fire. They were all formed by the death Qi. The eyes of the dark souls were completely fixed on Jiang Chen.

“These dark souls are of evil property. The Edifying Light can edify any sentient living creatures including devils and ghosts, even crooked beings can be edified. The death and dark Qi here has already reached to such a terrifying extent, so there should be many dark souls residing here. Did the light beam bring me here to test the power of the Edifying Light? For me to edify these dark souls?”

Jiang Chen guessed silently.


The three dark souls roared hoa.r.s.ely. They were very fast and they lunged at Jiang Chen.

Jiang Chen didn’t have any time to contemplate. He had to put away the thoughts of why or how he came here. Since he had cultivated The Edifying Light, he should test it out on these dark souls.
