Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 99 - Path Of The Saint

Qin Mu walked over, looking dashingly handsome. As what people said, clothes make the man. These clothes were extremely fitting on his body and much fabulous than the beast skin clothes.

Incense Master Qu smiled, "Young master has a superb handicraft, even I want the young master to stay and be a tailor."

Qin Mu smiled, "This is granny's handicraft. I'm just showing what I have learned."

Incense Master Qu smiled, "Young master, even though this fabric is impenetrable to blades and spears, it can't block needle-like spirit weapons, so young master needs to take note."

Qin Mu nodded his head and thanked him for his good intentions.

Incense Master Qu clapped his hands and called a young guy over. He softly instructed him and the young guy took a coin pouch over to pass it to Qin Mu. Incense Master Qu smiled, "Young master, even though there's not much money in this coin pouch, this is subordinate's goodwill."

Qin Mu grabbed a bunch of coins which was about a hundred from the coin pouch and smiled, "I've taken the treasure of your store and I'm already satisfied. You should take the rest back."

Incense Master Qu understood and said, "Gifting the rouge and powder to the beautiful woman and presenting the treasure sword to the hero. This Dragon Teeth Scissor has always been worshiped at my place and rarely used. Since young master has a superb handicraft, why don't you keep it?"

Qin Mu immediately declined and Incense Master Qu could only drop the matter.

Feng Xiuyun sent Qin Mu to the inn and said as she took her leave, "Young master, when the waterway is unlocked tomorrow, the caravans would leave Secret Waters Pass. Young master must remember to leave with the caravans as these days are really not in a state of peace."

Qin Mu expressed his thanks.

When night came, Hu Ling'er lighted the oil lamp and Qin Mu took the chance to raise his glove when there was light. On the glove, a thread stretched its head out like a spirit snake and gradually became thicker. Shortly after, he could see the writings of Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures and analyzed them in great detail.

Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures was a scripture which could turn one into god and into devil. When Qin Mu had left, Granny Si passed this scripture to him but she didn't teach him how to cultivate it and let him comprehend it himself.

"Granny Si said Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures was originally from a saint who had come down to the mortal realm and planned to use this technique to enlighten all living beings. But this technique was too easy to be cultivated wrongly, therefore, it was known as Heavenly Devil Scriptures."

Qin Mu carefully analyzed the summary of Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures and the opening of this devil scripture was a sentence which could rouse even the apathetic.

"The path of the saint is none other than the everyday use for common people. Anyone who does otherwise is considered heresy! To act straightforwardly, to follow the course of nature, that's the meaning of path."

Qin Mu jumped in shock. The meaning of this sentence was that every principle, no matter it was the path of God, Devil or Buddha, was heresy if it couldn't be used for the common people!

As long as it could be used every day by common people, it was the righteous path.

What is called the righteous path?To act straightforwardly and follow the course of nature.

With the opening being so ferocious, no wonder people would call it a devil bible!

However, this sentence had also fixed the foundation of Heavenly Devil Cult. The three hundred and sixty halls and hall masters of Heavenly Devil Cult were all originated from the three hundred and sixty professions belonging to the haunts of common people. They were all for the everyday use for common people and could be seen commonly. The divine arts used by the three hundred and sixty halls were also for daily use, for example, Rain Hall Master casting spells to create rain and solving the drought problems for the commoners.

These were common works of art while the paths of god and Buddha were like elegant works of art.

As a matter of fact, Qin Mu felt that the summary of Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures wasn't illogical, however, it was easy to misunderstand it.

There were many different kinds of techniques in Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures. There were all kinds of unusual techniques, all kinds of divine arts that people had never thought of. The thousands of strange and weird techniques dazzled Qin Mu's eyes, dumbfounding him.

However, Qin Mu pulled the glove into a thread and read from the beginning to the end. His eyebrows frowned deeper and deeper when he realized that there was actually no technique which could link the beginning to the end!

Techniques are split into technique and skill. For example, Qin Mu's Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique was a technique, an internal power. Whereas skills were Pig Slaughtering Knife Skill, Heavenly Pilfering Leg Skill, Thunderclap Eight Strikes and etc. Skills were the gateway to unleash the power of techniques.

If a skill wanted to unleash its full power, it must have a corresponding technique.

For example, Thunderclap Eight Strikes required Rulai's Mahayana Sutra to be able to unleash its full power.

There may be plenty of skills and techniques in Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures, but there was no technique which was able to command all techniques and skills. With just this alone, it didn't deserve to be called the devil bible which could turn one into devil and into god!

"The Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures isn't complete!"

Qin Mu immediately thought of the crucial point. Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures may be all inclusive but it lacked a technique to unify all. There were too many techniques and divine arts, therefore, it made cultivating technique of each strenuous, even though every technique and skill was not bad, actually pretty powerful. Thus it was impossible to complete cultivating Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures.

In Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures, there were over thousand kinds of techniques and skills and each skill had a corresponding technique. There was no technique which could control all the skills!

What could have resulted this was that Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures wasn't complete.

"However, it's impossible for Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures to be incomplete, for this technique to be regarded as a precious treasure by Heavenly Devil Cult. There must be a technique which could unify all these techniques and divine arts in this cult legacy technique. Otherwise Heavenly Devil Cult wouldn't relentlessly search for granny for forty years…"

Qin Mu's heart slightly stirred and read Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures from the beginning to the end again, but he still couldn't see the outline of it. He then checked it from the end to the beginning, yet he still didn't discover anything.

"Where exactly is the secret of Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures? Granny also might not have discovered the summarized technique of Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures."

Qin Mu sunk into deep thoughts. Among the nine elders in Disabled Elderly Village, Granny Si was at the lowest realm. This should be Why she wasn't able to combine all the various kinds of techniques from the Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures as a whole.

She should have only cultivated some of the techniques in it to prevent herself from wasting her time and energy from cultivating too many techniques.

It was nearly an impossible feat for a person to learn all the thousands of techniques and skills as well as to master all of them in their living years.

"Could it be in that jade box which the patriarchs of the past generations had sealed?"

Qin Mu rummaged in his bag and found the jade box. This jade box had also been stuffed inside it by Granny Si. Qin Mu tried opening the jade box but there were many talismans sealing it. When Granny Si created a havoc at Border Dragon City then, she had said that the talismans were the seals of the Heavenly Devil Cult Masters of past generations.

Qin Mu pinched onto one talisman and gently peeled it. To his surprise, the talisman came off easily.

Qin Mu stared blankly and look at the back of the talisman. There were a few words written on it, "It's fake, hee hee."

"Granny sure knows how to have fun…"

Qin Mu shook his head and peeled off the other talismans to open the box. There was also nothing inside the box.

"Without the technique to unite everything, who's able to cultivate Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures?"

He couldn't help having a headache. Pondering upon this awhile, he said silently to himself, "My technique is Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique, and since I already have a technique, why do I need to search for the method to unify Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures? Can't I just use my Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique?"

He executed what he had thought of and opened Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures and found a spell called Secrets Of Moving Rain. In just a short while, he had learned the spell.

He pushed open the window and looked at the darkness outside. He hesitated for a moment and immediately came to a realization, "This isn't the lands of Great Ruins anymore, the darkness outside is just normal darkness. There are still pedestrians outside and there's no need to be afraid."

Qin Mu relaxed and leaped out from the window. Stretching his hand out to grab the eaves, he gently pulled himself upwards and somersaulted onto the roof of the inn.

A gust of wind blew out from the window as the white fox flew out on a pillow. With the demon wind blowing, the pillow floated up to the roof and landed beside Qin Mu.

"What's that in the sky?" The fox suddenly cried out while pointing to the moon in the sky, startled and scared.

"That's the moon."

Qin Mu raised his head to take a look with a blurry gaze and said, "That should be the moon I guess? I have seen the moon in the day and it looks similar to this moon…"

He also couldn't be sure. When he was still a child, Granny Si would point to a faint silver sphere in the sky during the day and tell him that was the moon which was very bright at night. However, ever since he remembered, he had never seen the moon at night before.

The night in Great Ruins was complete darkness and nothing could be seen in the sky. Similarly, there were no stars in the night of Great Ruins.

The full moon shone brightly as it was the sixteenth day of the fifth month of the year.

Under the moonlight, Qin Mu executed the Secrets Of Moving Rain and the mist in the sky above the inn instantly condensed, and pattering rain fell.

Qin Mu waved his hand and all the rain instantly froze and strings of water hanged in the air as if time had stopped.

Hu Ling'er clicked her tongue in wonder and jumped up to touch these strings of water. She ended up drenching her fur, therefore, she immediately returned to the inn to dry her fur.

On the rooftop, Qin Mu changed his technique and used vital qi to execute Secrets Of Moving Water, to strum the strings of water. Instantly, the strings of water gave off beautiful music that could only be made with traditional music instruments. As the music sounded out, the rain turned into razor sharp water blades which flew into the sky!

These water blades flew over thirty yards before they started to lose power and turned back into flowing water!

This was the gathering area for trading and most of the people here were merchants, therefore, no one would get involved with him cultivating here.

"It's still not good. It doesn't flow smoothly."

Qin Mu's footsteps moved as he continuously strummed the strings of water. Hundreds of weapons crisscrossed and collided with each other in the rain, filling the sky with murderous aura. Hu Ling'er floated out from the window of the inn and applauded repeatedly with her furry paws!

Secrets Of Moving Rain had its own technique and Qin Mu always felt it was hard to unleash the full power of Secret Of Moving Rain while using Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique.

The power of his spell was already spectacular however this was because of his extremely strong cultivation. If it was another suitable skill, the power of that skill would definitely be much stronger!
