EIF - Book 05 Chapter 037: Breaking the Unmoving Vow of Silence Meditation

Bodhisattva Jie Dong bled from his seven facial orifices.

Everyone fell silent, looking at this scene in puzzlement.

“What happened to Bodhisattva Jie Dong?” the monks asked anxiously.

The citizens felt incredibly confused. The song is very pleasant, but he is bleeding from his facial orifices?

Only Gu Hai, Long Shenwu, Mu Chenfeng, and the others aboard the flying ships understood.

“This Bodhisattva Jie Dong is truly heroic,” a general behind Long Shenwu marveled with a sigh.

“Indeed. Ensnaring Performance must have sung ten songs already. To think that Bodhisattva Jie Dong can still sit there calmly! A true man!”

“Back then, we could not finish even one song.”

“The Unmoving Vow of Silence Meditation truly lives up to its reputation.”

The generals looked at Bodhisattva Jie Dong in shock.

“Bodhisattva Jie Dong wants to drag things out. However, he does not know that Ensnaring Performance does not need to drag it out,” Sima Changkong said with a strange expression.

As the beggar clapped, Ensnaring Performance sang even more excitedly. His intoxicated singing made the surrounding citizens feel great anticipation. If only we could listen!

However, why was Bodhisattva Jie Dong bleeding from his facial orifices?

“It must be so nice that Bodhisattva Jie Dong felt so moved that he started bleeding,” someone said out of nowhere.

Blargh! Bodhisattva Jie Dong spewed out a mouthful of blood. Moved, my ass. This old monk is about to go crazy.

“Bodhisattva Jie Dong, are you losing control of your energy? Quickly calm down. You cannot lose at this moment!” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu cried out anxiously.

Bodhisattva Jie Dong’s hands trembled as he held them together. He continually recited Buddhist scriptures in his mind as he looked at Ensnaring Performance, who seemed to have forgotten about everything else.

An evil demon! An evil demon! Where did this evil demon come from? Can you rest for a while? Why are you still singing?

Bodhisattva Jie Dong felt like crying. After practicing Buddhism for so many years, this was the first time he felt such despair. Lord Buddha, what should I do?

Should I rip Ensnaring Performance’s mouth open? Destroy him with my martial prowess? Had it not been for the music Dao battle, Bodhisattva Jie Dong would have attacked long ago.

However, Bodhisattva Jie Dong had to endure this torture for the Spirit Mountain Holy Land to obtain the beggar.

Sealing his hearing was useless. Sealing all his senses was useless. After using too much force, he had injured his facial orifices. Even so, it still proved useless.

Ensnaring Performance remained engrossed in his singing.

Everyone stared at the scene, not knowing what had happened.

“Did Bodhisattva Jie Dong lose control of his energy?”

“He must have lost control. Ensnaring Performance is singing so nicely. Look at how intoxicated that beggar is. Bodhisattva Jie Dong bleeding from the seven facial orifices must have nothing to do with him!”

“That is retribution for being shameless and refusing to admit defeat. He even taunted Ensnaring Performance. He is suffering retribution now, right?”

“It serves him right!”

Countless citizens criticized mercilessly.

The monks appeared confused.

------

Even the Future Buddha and the Qian Heavenly Emperor in Heavenly Court City fell silent. What does this mean?

“There are times when one loses control of one’s energy when circulating the Unmoving Vow of Silence Meditation?” the Qian Heavenly Emperor said, feeling puzzled.

“That should not be the case,” the Future Buddha said in confusion.

------

At this moment, Ensnaring Performance finished singing another song in the sound barrier.

Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! The beggar clapped excitedly.

“Not bad. Zhengfa Ming, you have great comprehension skills. Since you like it that much. I shall sing you a song that I just composed. It is called “Baldy, You Don’t Understand Love!” Ensnaring Performance said cockily.

After that introduction, Ensnaring Performance immediately started singing. “Baldy Jie Dong, do you understand love or not? If you don’t understand love…the Hearing Buddha Hall will collapse…”

Ensnaring Performance had sung only two lines, and Bodhisattva Jie Dong could no longer endure.

“Evil demon, die!”

Bodhisattva Jie Dong suddenly reared his head back and shouted. Overwhelming golden light suddenly spewed out his mouth like a heavenly river raging with surging waves. A destructive might immediately spread from his mouth.

The moment this overwhelming might appeared, a violent wind swept into the Hearing Buddha Hall’s surroundings.

A horrifying might rivaling that of an Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator descended upon the area. The golden light spewing out of Bodhisattva Jie Dong’s mouth was like a light of destruction, a golden river that threatened to destroy the world.

As this powerful aura spread out, the surrounding citizens’ expressions changed, their hearts trembling.

“Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Save me!”

Ensnaring Performance had never faced such a horrifying attack before, so he shouted in horror.

The sound barrier immediately broke, and the words “Evil demon, die!” resounded in the air.

“You bastard!” The expression of Long Shenwu, who was in the sky, turned cold as he extended his hand to make a move.

“How dare you?!” Ao Shun glared and punched at the golden light spewing out of Bodhisattva Jie Dong’s mouth.

This power shook the entire Heavenly Mao City.

“Protect the citizens!” the Heavenly Mao City Lord shouted to the guards present.

“Bodhisattva Jie Dong, don’t!” the monks at the Hearing Buddha Hall called out.

“Mu Chenfeng!” Gu Hai yelled with a glare.

Mu Chenfeng immediately aimed the Heaven Blasting Cannon at the crazed Bodhisattva Jie Dong.

Several powerful attacks rushed towards Bodhisattva Jie Dong from all directions.

The golden river coming from Bodhisattva Jie Dong seemed like it would reach Ensnaring Performance in an instant.

“Amitābha!”

A Buddhist chant rang out of nowhere. It was the Future Buddha’s voice.

Buzz!

A gigantic, golden palm suddenly manifested before Ensnaring Performance, shielding him and blocking all the powerful attacks. Then, it clashed with the golden river Bodhisattva Jie Dong was spewing out.

Rumble…!

The intense clash shook the plaza, and the powerful shock waves knocked the surrounding citizens to the ground. The entire Heavenly Mao City shook.

The powerful shock waves continued sweeping out in all directions, threatening to level most of Heavenly Mao City in an instant.

Buzz!

The Future Buddha’s gigantic, golden palm image clenched, grabbing all the shock waves.

Boom!

A muffled explosion sounded, and the shock waves immediately dissipated.

The cultivators who attacked all stopped.

The countless citizens got back to their feet.

“How shameless of Bodhisattva Jie Dong! They sneak-attacked Ensnaring Performance again?”

“That was close. Bodhisattva Jie Dong nearly killed Ensnaring Performance.”

“Didn’t they agree to a music Dao duel? Why did he also attack?”

“How ruthless and shameless!”

“He can’t afford to lose, so he wanted to silence Ensnaring Performance?”

The surrounding citizens glared at Bodhisattva Jie Dong, enraged.

“That scared this god of music!” Ensnaring Performance said in horror with lingering fears in his heart.

Now that Ensnaring Performance was fine, Gu Hai, Ao Shun, and the others were no longer that angry. It had been tough on Bodhisattva Jie Dong to listen to Ensnaring Performance sing for so long.

“Bodhisattva Jie Dong, what are you doing?” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu exclaimed.

“Bodhisattva Jie Dong, why did you suddenly attack?” the monks asked in confusion.

“Evil demon! Evil demon! Die! Die…” Pointing at Ensnaring Performance, Bodhisattva Jie Dong muttered crazed rambling.

Bang!

Bodhisattva Jie Dong’s body flared with a golden aura, and he suddenly collapsed on the ground.

“Bodhisattva Jie Dong lost his cultivation? He lost his cultivation?!” a monk exclaimed.

“Bodhisattva Jie Dong spoke, breaking his Unmoving Vow of Silence Meditation. How could it be? Ensnaring Performance broke his Unmoving Vow of Silence Meditation?”

“The golden river spewing from his mouth earlier was all of Bodhisattva Jie Dong’s energy. All his efforts were lost? Bodhisattva Jie Dong lost his cultivation, becoming an ordinary human?!”

A group of monks ran over anxiously and supported Bodhisattva Jie Dong.

“That scared this god of music to death. After failing to kill me, you now want to extort me?” Ensnaring Performance immediately cried out.

“Master, he tried to kill me! That shameless thing tried to kill me!” Ensnaring Performance turned to Gu Hai.

Gu Hai glared at Ensnaring Performance. Isn’t this your fault? To think that you are not embarrassed to complain to me?

“The Future Buddha made a very timely move earlier. Otherwise, not only would Bodhisattva Jie Dong have been beaten to death, but His Holy Eminence would also have pursued the matter of the Spirit Mountain Holy Land’s causing trouble here,” Ao Shun said coldly.

We are Hosted Nov3l, find us on g00gle.

Bodhisattva Jie Dong continued pointing at Ensnaring Performance, muttering “evil demon.”

“Did Bodhisattva Jie Dong go crazy?” Mu Chenfeng said, feeling lost.

Search h0sted n0vel for the original.

He then looked at Ensnaring Performance, feeling a chill in his heart. Can Ensnaring Performance’s songs really drive a person to madness?

“Jie Dong! That’s enough!” The Future Buddha’s stern voice exploded in the surroundings.

Naturally, Bodhisattva Jie Dong bore the brunt of that.

Bodhisattva Jie Dong trembled intensely and seemed to come back to his senses.

“I…I…I’ve ended my cultivation technique? I’ve ended it?” Blargh! Bodhisattva Jie Dong spewed out another mouthful of blood, unable to accept his current state.

“Humph! Jie Dong, what’s going on with you? How dare you attack Ensnaring Performance in the middle of a music Dao duel?” The Future Buddha’s voice rang out coldly.

“Lord Future Buddha, he… It’s him! This evil demon! He sang… He sang…!” Bodhisattva Jie Dong suddenly shivered in horror.

“Speak properly. What did Ensnaring Performance sing? Why did you suddenly go mad?” The Future Buddha’s angry voice rang out again.

“He sang… He sang ‘Baldy, You Don’t Understand Love.’ His singing is too…too…I could not bear it. I could not bear it, so I…” Bodhisattva Jie Dong trembled intensely.

“The song’s name sounds fine. You wanted to kill him just because of that?” the Future Buddha said coldly.

Bodhisattva Jie Dong: “…”

“I…I couldn’t endure it. I couldn’t endure! Wah! Wah! Wah!” Bodhisattva Jie Dong suddenly burst into tears, sniveling.

That sorrowful and wronged appearance caused all the enraged citizens’ expressions to congeal. Is this a situation of the criminal making accusations first? Or is there a story behind Bodhisattva Jie Dong? What is wrong with saying that he does not understand love?

The enraged citizens frowned at Bodhisattva Jie Dong.

The Future Buddha stopped speaking, rendered speechless. It’s one thing to end your cultivation technique, breaking it. Why are you crying?

“Alright. Bring Bodhisattva Jie Dong away.” The Future Buddha’s tone contained helplessness.

However, Long Shenwu, Sima Changkong, and the generals sighed. None of them blamed Bodhisattva Jie Dong; they only watched coldly.

“Future Buddha…” A dignified voice suddenly rang out of nowhere.

“Amitābha! Bodhisattva Jie Dong lost this round. I concede defeat. The beggar belongs to Elite Hall!” the Future Buddha sighed.

Hey guys, you all probably have been seeing the occasional message about Patreon and how EIF isn't doing very well financially. So I held out as long as I can, and unfortunately, things are not looking up. In the interest of being able to keep up a sustainable income to pay my bills and pay the team sufficiently, I'm going to have to lower the release rates of EIF in favor of picking up another novel. As of now, I have not found another novel yet, but I will be decreasing the release rates from May onwards so that I have time to search for the next novel. For now, the rates will be lowered to 30 chapters a month, essentially daily chapters.
