of the heavens and was qualified to stand on equal grounds as Kong shi.
The appearance of such a person would surely be a turning point in
history. That person would become the new leader of the Master Teacher
Pavilion, and there would be no master teacher who would dare disobey
Who would not want to acknowledge such a great figure as their teacher?
9-star master teachers might seem to be in an incredibly prestigious
position in the eyes of outsiders, but to a Celestial Master Teacher,
they would not mean anything at all!
Back then, of Kong shi’s three thousand students, which of them had not
reached a proficiency of 9-star in their occupation? Even his
listening-in students were of 9-star proficiency.
Elder Qu might want to become the student of such a person, but whether
the other party would be willing to take him in or not was questionable!
“However, it seems like the Celestial Master Teacher is just a legend!”
Hearing Elder Qu’s remark, Ren Qingyuan shook his head and sighed. “If a
Celestial Master Teacher could emerge among us now, with their prestige
and power, they would surely be able to swiftly unite the entire human
race, such that even if the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe rose once more,
they would not dare provoke us!”
The other master teachers in the room swiftly nodded in agreement.
The ancient era had contained the darkest times of the human race. Back
then, the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe had wielded absolute power, and they
had dominated all other races. The powers that they formed had all been
as strong as the current Master Teacher Pavilion, and yet, with his
strength, Kong shi had been able to vanquish the darkness and bring the
light of hope back to mankind.
For this reason, the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe was extremely fearful of
Kong shi. Just the mention of his name was enough to leave them in a
state of unease.
If another Kong shi rose among them once more, mankind would surely be
able to rise to new heights, reaching an unprecedented altitude!
“Forget it, that’s just wishful thinking; there’s no point holding onto
such thoughts. The reason I was able to become the deputy pavilion master
is just because I am slightly stronger than the rest. I also know that my
influence is still far from enough. The Master Teacher Pavilion might be
able to tower above the Zhang Clan, the Glacier Plain Court, and the
other major powers for the time being, but if we fail to deal with this
matter appropriately, we could stand to lose their trust. By then, even
if they still dare not defy us openly, they could still pull some strings
in the shadows to make things hard for us, and that could easily
culminate into a tragedy for mankind!”
Ren Qingyuan swept his gaze across the faces in the room before
continuing on. “Kong shi once said that a person should make it a habit
to reflect on their actions, and I have always kept his teachings in
mind, not daring to forget them. While Zhang Xuan did achieve quite a
number of contributions for mankind, his deeds are nothing compared to
what the Zhang Clan, the Sanctum of Sages, and the Glacier Plain Court
have done. In this situation, the only thing that I can do is pick the
“Alright, there’s no need to argue over this matter anymore; I have
already made up my mind. About the matter concerning Zhang Xuan, many of
you have spoken up on his behalf, and I am also of the view that he
should be given a second chance, so if any of you notice him, don’t harm
him for the time being. We’ll try to convince the three powers to lay
down their grudges with him and settle the matter peacefully, and if that
works out, that will be for the best. Otherwise… we’ll just have to
“You’re right, Pavilion Master Ren. That’s probably the best that we can
do for now…”
Many of the elders in the room nodded in agreement.
They had only considered from their perspectives as master teachers, but
they had failed to think of the implications that could arise out of the
decision. Fortunately, the deputy pavilion master had taken the bigger
picture into consideration, thus avoiding a potential tragedy. Otherwise,
if the Master Teacher Pavilion worked as it wished, without caring about
the other parties involved, the others might deem their actions to be
willful and unjust, and that would cause them to lose the support of the
Given how powerful and influential the Master Teacher Pavilion was, that
would not have mattered much under normal circumstances. However, with
the looming crisis, it would be foolish to allow a fallout to occur.
“It’s Zhang Xuan’s fortune that Pavilion Master Ren is willing to show
such magnanimity to him. However, judging from Zhang Wuheng, Zhan shi,
and You Ruoxin’s attitude toward him… it doesn’t seem like
reconciliation is too likely!” Elder Qu shook his head.
“Once Zhang Xuan is found, even if we don’t make a move, those three
powers will surely swallow him whole…”
Before Elder Qu could finish his words, a mysterious power suddenly
surged into the room, and the entire hall began trembling intensely, as
if it would collapse at any moment.
“What’s happening?” Alarmed, Pavilion Master Ren jolted to his feet.
Wu shi and the others also swiftly looked in the direction that the surge
of power had originated from.
A thought arose in Elder Qu’s mind, and his face twitched in horror. It
can’t be that Zhang Xuan has managed to make his way over to the Master
Teacher Pavilion headquarters, can it?
Surely, he could not have the audacity to do something as insolent as
But if it was not him, who else could it be?
Due to the great power shrouding the Master Teacher Pavilion, it had
stood firmly for the past several dozen millenniums. It was hard to think
of any other culprit.
“It’s coming from the Teacher Acknowledgement Hall. Let’s head over to
take a look!” Ren Qingyuan swiftly determined the direction of the
tremors’ source and headed out.
The other elders followed behind him.
As 9-star master teachers, it took them just the blink of an eye to
arrive before the Teacher Acknowledgement Hall. They pushed the door open
and headed in.
As soon as they entered, they saw countless ancestral tablets all around
the room trembling nonstop, as if they were being attacked by some
The energy that had caused the entire Master Teacher Pavilion to tremble
uncontrollably had originated from there.
“The predecessors are trembling in fear? What’s going on?” Elder Qu’s
lips quivered as he nearly fainted in fright from the sight.
Wu shi and the others also hurriedly scanned their surroundings to check
if they had been attacked by enemies.
“It isn’t an enemy attack, but…” As realization of what the trembling
ancestral tablets could possibly signify struck Ren Qingyuan, his eyes
widened in utter shock as his words trailed to a halt, seemingly unable
to continue on anymore.
Hearing Ren Qingyuan’s words, Wu shi was the first to realize what the
other party was thinking, and his body began trembling in disbelief. “If
it isn’t an enemy attack, the trembling of the ancestral tablets would
mean that… C-could it be…”
Hong long long!
Before he could finish his words, the tablets in the room finally reached
their limits and collapsed to the ground simultaneously, as if they were
bowing earnestly to pay their respects to an esteemed figure.
“That’s the Salutation of the Sages…” Elder Qu also swiftly
comprehended what was going on, and his eyebrows began twitching wildly.
Those who were honored in the Teacher Acknowledgement Hall of the Master
Teacher Pavilion headquarters were all outstanding predecessors who had
wielded great power in their era and contributed immensely to mankind.
The fact that even Ren Qingyuan was unqualified to have his tablet
erected within the Teacher Acknowledgement Hall after his death was
sufficient to show just what kind of legacies those figures had left on
the Master Teacher Continent.
There was only one type of person in the world who could make master
teachers of their standing simultaneously bow respectfully to offer their
While the crowd was still trying to come to terms with what was going on,
at the very center of the room, Kong shi’s sculpture suddenly floated up
and clasped his fist respectfully in a certain direction. A slight smile
slowly emerged onto his face, but at the same time, a hint of a crack
suddenly appeared at the bottom of the sculpture. It swiftly engulfed the
entire sculpture, and eventually…
It collapsed into rubble.
“Salutations of the Sages, Kong shi’s Greeting… That’s the mark of a
Celestial Master Teacher!”
At this point, the truth had already become apparent to all of the master
teachers in the room. It was hard to tell whether it was out of agitation
or shock, but every single one of their faces was ghastly pale.
As 9-star master teachers, they were aware of the significance of the
various phenomena that would occur in the Master Teacher Pavilion.
It was just a moment ago that they had lamented over the lack of a
Celestial Master Teacher to lead them through the crisis that they were
in, but the next moment, they learned that there was actually a Celestial
Master Teacher among them. Could there be a bigger fluctuation of highs
and lows than this in the world?
After the collapse of Kong shi’s sculpture, it seemed like the Teacher
Acknowledgement Hall had reached the limits of its tolerance, and it
swiftly collapsed inward. However, too overwhelmed by shock, the elders
simply stood motionless on the spot, allowing the roof to collapse freely
on their heads.
With their level of cultivation, the bricks falling on their heads felt
no different from mere cotton.
Ren Qingyuan’s eyes lit up as he clenched his fists tightly together.
“There’s hope for mankind! With the emergence of a Celestial Master
Teacher, the Master Teacher Pavilion will rise to the top of the world
once more!” Ren Qingyuan burst into laughter as tears of agitation
streamed down his cheeks.
As the deputy pavilion master, despite lacking in prestige, he still had
the responsibility to unite the world to defend against threats. As such,
the stress that he had been put under over the years was truly
unimaginable. With the emergence of a Celestial Master Teacher, he would
finally be relieved of the pressure that he had been placed under!
Ren Qingyuan turned around and commanded, “Master teachers, hear my
command! Find the source of the power, locate the whereabouts of the
Celestial Master Teacher, and bring him back right away to inherit the
position as the head of the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters!”
The 9-star master teachers clasped their fists simultaneously,
acknowledging the order.The exact saying from Kong shi goes, “A person
should always reflect on their actions from three aspects: Have I tried
my best when helping others? Have I treated others earnestly? Have I
reviewed on the knowledge that others have taken the effort to impart to
me?” But over time, the phrase has evolved to a more general meaning to
prompt a person to often reflect on their actions.
