I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-800
“Young Lord, you need to study now….”
“Young Lord, stop bullying your cousin Prince Wei! Look, he’s crying
because you hit him!” 1
“Aiya! Young Lord, don’t bully Princess Ling’er. She’s… she’s
your future beloved! The Patriarch already issued the official order!”
Meng Hao gaped at everything that was happening. He watched the
five-year-old version of himself pummeling another boy his age.
Apparently the boy had told on him, which earned Meng Hao beating from
his sister. This was his revenge. In the end, the boy was in tears and
begging for mercy. In another scene, he saw himself setting fire to the
hair of a young girl who was about the same age as him. That left him
feeling quite shocked. In fact, he couldn’t help but think… this kid
couldn’t really be him, could he?
He saw many unfamiliar faces, and he also witnessed the carefree life he
had lived until he was seven years of age. The life he had lived was one
of simple happiness.
He wasn’t studious at all, which made Meng Hao recall how poorly he had
fared in the Imperial examinations.
However, on his seventh birthday, everything changed!
The day his seventh birthday arrived, something completely unforeseen
happened to him. It was a misfortune, an extremely shocking matter that
caused a huge commotion throughout the entire Fang Clan, although the
news was quickly hushed up.
The Fang Clan had a bloodline legacy, a Daoist Magic that was completely
Heaven-defying. It manifested differently among different clan members,
depending on their bloodline. It was a Daoist magic that could… allow
for Nirvanic Rebirth up to four times! It was an ability that essentially
gave them a chance to live up to four lifetimes!
The character ‘Fang 方’ is composed of four strokes, just like those
four lifetimes 2. It was this Daoist magic that ensured that the Fang
Clan remained as a towering force in the Ninth Mountain and Sea,
regardless of whether it was the era of Lord Li or Lord Ji.

Any clan member who was born with a Nirvana Brand was considered Chosen.
If a clan member was born without it, it was very difficult to develop it
later in life.
Furthermore… throughout all the years, it was virtually unheard of for
anyone to actually live all four lifetimes. Even some of the clan
Patriarchs, when they became old and weak, could only experience Nirvanic
Rebirth once. Those who had been able to experience Nirvanic Rebirth
twice were extremely rare.
It required a deep cultivation base, as well as a very pure Fang clan
Every time Nirvanic Rebirth was experienced, a Nirvana Flower would
bloom. It would meld into the body, and allow the subject to become
incredibly powerful by living an entire additional lifetime!
On Meng Hao’s seventh birthday… he experienced Nirvanic Rebirth!
He did not have a powerful cultivation base, and yet… he experienced
This matter shook the whole Fang Clan. Meng Hao’s father and mother
were even more astonished!
That was because… although Nirvanic Rebirth was a good thing, and
enabled someone to live more lifetimes, for something like that to happen
to a seven-year-old child was the most brutal of calamities! 3
He hadn’t even lived a life yet. He had a road of endless possibilities
ahead of him, but was stifled before he could explore any of them! All of
the essence of his flesh and blood, all of his fated good fortune that
had yet to be revealed, was sucked into the Nirvanic Rebirth as he
started over from the beginning!
His body began to degenerate as he passed backward from seven years of
age until he was in the same state he had been when he was born. The
Nirvana Brand on the back of his hand faded some, and a layer of it fell
off, which then transformed into a flower. Shockingly, the flower… gave
bloom to a fruit!

That fruit gave rise to further shock in the Fang Clan. Even the
Patriarchs who were locked away in secluded meditation came out to see.
According to the legends, the pinnacle of the Fang Clan’s Nirvanic
Rebirth Daoist magic was none other than the Nirvana Fruit!
Nirvana Flowers were rare, but there were people in every generation who
produced them…. However, for many many years in the Fang Clan, the
Nirvana Fruit had only been spoken of as the stuff of legend. Up until
then, in the entire Fang Clan there was only one shriveled up, auraless
husk of a Nirvana Fruit.
Nirvana Flowers bloomed when a member of the Fang Clan experienced
Nirvanic Rebirth and began to live another lifetime. They were born
inside of the body, and could enable one to grow incredibly powerful.
When that clan member died later on, the Nirvana Flower would wither and
However, Nirvana Fruit… were the absolute pinnacle of power. They could
be preserved… and passed on as legacies!
And now… little Meng Hao actually produced a Nirvana Fruit!
This matter shook the Fang clan, and many clan members started to view
Meng Hao as an extraordinary Chosen. However, his father and mother were
a bit uneasy about the matter. And as they watched as their son reverted
from being seven years of age to being an infant, that unease grew more
This type of good fortune was something that they didn’t dare to think
too deeply about. If they did… it caused their hair to stand on end in
terror. It was the prospect of a child who, at seven years of age, had
lost an entire lifetime, as if an eighth year of life didn’t even exist
Meng Hao’s paternal grandfather looked on silently. Then one night, he
left. Before leaving, he told Meng Hao’s father and mother that he was
going to seek an Outsider, who he believed was the only person who could
explain what was happening. Meng Hao’s maternal grandfather, the
venerable old man from the Eighth Mountain’s Meng Clan, went with him.
The two of them disappeared into the starry sky.

Little Meng Hao grew up again, almost as if he had been reincarnated. He
did not retain the memories of his previous life, and his personality had
changed drastically. He was much quieter. He also noticed the strange
looks that many clan members would give him when they thought no one was
looking, and it scared him.
Such gazes were not the look you would give to a child, but rather, some
type of Heavenly material or Earthly treasure.
When people looked at him in that way, his older sister would burst into
a ranting rage and storm over with Meng Hao in tow to beat them up. She
was frequently at his side, watching out for him.
“Don’t be scared little brother, your big sister is here to protect
you!” She was fifteen or sixteen years old now, and was already slender
and elegant. However, her violent personality hadn’t changed. In fact,
she had actually grown more violent. 4
One day, a senior member of the clan gave Meng Hao that same strange
look, which left him very frightened.
Later, he told his father about it. His father smiled and tousled his
hair, then rocked him to sleep. After Meng Hao fell asleep, his father
turned to leave, and his face was extremely grim. That day, the entire
Fang Clan was sent into an explosive uproar, and many miserable shrieks
rang out. Meng Hao’s father swept through the entire clan, sword in
From that day onward, there were far fewer such gazes cast Meng Hao’s
Time passed. The other children who were once Meng Hao’s age were now
older, and the people he used to bully began to make progress along the
path of cultivation. He could no longer set fire to that increasingly
beautiful girl’s hair. He was completely incapable of beating up Prince
Wei, whom he found so objectionable. None of his former friends would
play with him. Although he was constantly attended by various clan
members, he was still plagued by a festering feeling of loneliness.
Eventually, he also found out about the rebirth he had undergone when he
had turned seven.
The only people who he truly had to accompany him were his father, his
mother, and his older sister. During this second lifetime, Meng Hao
rarely went outside. Most of those seven years were spent in silence….
Finally, the seventh birthday of his second lifetime arrived, and… he
once again went through Nirvanic Rebirth.

When it happened, Meng Hao felt fear, and pain. His body withered, and
everything went blurry. It was as if his flesh and blood were fading
away. The mark on the back of his hand once again shone with a bizarre
The Fang Clan was yet again thrown into chaos. As Meng Hao experienced
the Nirvanic Rebirth, his mother held him in her arms, and tears flowed
down her face onto his. As he experienced these blurry memories, Meng Hao
couldn’t help but stare blankly at his mother, and the look of pain and
heartbreak on her face.
Little Meng Hao’s voice was hoarse as he said, “Mother… don’t
cry…. Didn’t you tell me that this is just like sleeping a bit…?
I’ll rest for a while and then wake up…. When I wake up, you have to
tell me a story, okay…?” His older sister stood off to the side,
weeping as she watched her little brother. She was already twenty years
old, and to see her little brother grow up twice, only to experience
Nirvanic Rebirth twice, was heartrending.
His father stood off to the side, fists clenched tightly at his sides,
eyes seemingly on the verge of dripping with tears of blood.
Unfortunately, there was no way for him to vent the anguish he felt in
Nirvanic Rebirth was certainly Heaven-defying. However… for it to
happen twice to a young child on his seventh birthday, was no good
fortune. It was a tribulation!
Seventh Year Tribulation!
If it happened a third time, and then a fourth, then what awaited Meng
Hao would be certain death. He would leave behind four Nirvana Fruits,
and would then vanish into nothing.
His life would be one in which… he never reached eight years of age.
A strange atmosphere fell over the Fang Clan. Many people were watching,
waiting for Meng Hao to complete the Nirvanic Rebirth, and then give
bloom to a second Nirvana Fruit. However, no strange looks could be seen,
and no one spoke.
They watched as Meng Hao gradually degenerated, once again becoming a
young child…. The mark on his hand produced a flower, which then bore a

Thus, the curtain fell on Meng Hao’s second incomplete life.
When he finally became an infant yet again, he didn’t cry. As his
mother held him in her arms, he gazed blankly up at the stars.
His mother wept. Trembling, his father lifted his head up and roared.
Unfortunately, that didn’t change anything. They could see the mark on
the back of Meng Hao’s hand, the Nirvana Brand, and they knew that the
third lifetime had begun.
This time, he was clearly doomed to experience Nirvanic Rebirth again on
his seventh birthday.
There were many aged members of the Fang Clan who were observing what was
happening. Many of them appeared to be very distressed; others sighed.
Word of the matter finally began to spread outside the clan. However, the
secret of Nirvanic Rebirth was maintained. The only thing that people on
the outside knew was that the Fang Clan’s eldest grandchild, the direct
descendant of the bloodline, was born with tribulation attached to him.
Every seven years he would experience such tribulation.
A child like that was essentially crippled.
Meng Hao’s mother spent her days with tears staining her face. His
older sister’s violent temper caused her to get into fights virtually
every day, as if that was the only way for her to give vent to the anger
in her heart. His father did everything in his power to try to figure out
a way to solve the problem, but it was all in vain.
His two grandfathers never returned.
When he was one year old during his third lifetime, a young man came to
Planet East Victory. His arrival caused the elder members of the clan to
reel in shock. One after another, they came out to bow in respect.

The young man said he had been sent by Meng Hao’s grandfathers. After
laying eyes on Meng Hao, he was silent for a long time. His face
flickered with memories and conflicting emotions, as well as surprise.
“In life, all things relate to the reaping and sowing of Karma. Farming
is an example. You must work hard before you can bring in the harvest….
You must pay out before you can profit.
“As a husband and wife, are the two of you willing to abandon any
future glory, to give up your current status and become the Prison
Wardens of the Ninth Mountain, to guard the gate of South Heaven for
100,000 years? Are you willing, no matter what Heaven-shaking
Earth-shattering events take place, no matter what calamitous
tribulations occur in the outside world, to spend 100,000 tedious years
in that one place and not step foot outside of South Heaven? Are you
willing to guard the gate of South Heaven, and not let any living beings
from the outside world pass through it?
“If you are willing to leave behind everything that has been polluted
by your Karma, then take this child to South Heaven. That place is the
origin of the entire Ninth Mountain. If you take him there… then you
must leave him before his seventh birthday. Keep your distance from him
until the day he reaches Dao Seeking. You must not meet him, and must not
allow your Karma to contaminate him. All of this will depend on the level
of your sincerity. If you are truly sincere, then you can succeed.

3. This word for “calamity” is actually composed of two characters
浩劫. The first character is the same character “Hao 浩” from Meng
Hao’s name. The second is the character often translated “tribulation
劫.” Together, they mean calamity.
