Passive Cultivation of Techniques: Training to Become Buddha in a Demonic Sect - Chapter 2
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Scripture Depository was very far away.
Lu Li walked for half a day before he arrived at the Scripture Depository after the sky had darkened.
As soon as he stepped into the front yard of the Scripture Depository, a stern voice rang out in Lu Li’s mind.
At the same time, a mountain-like pressure enveloped the top of his head.
This was a spiritual pressure even stronger than Demonic Devil!
Lu Li did not dare to be negligent and quickly took out the sect jade pendant that Demonic Devil had given him.
The jade pendant vibrated and emitted a ray of light.
Then, the stern voice sounded again, “Disciples who enter the sect can only enter the first floor of the Scripture Depository. If you enter the second floor without permission, we’ll kill without mercy.”
“As you command.”
Lu Li put away the jade pendant and cupped his hands in salute.
Then, he walked into the Scripture Depository.
There were many people in the Scripture Depository.
However, it was very quiet.
Lu Li walked carefully and bowed his head slightly, not daring to look at anyone.
These were all ruthless and merciless demonic cultivators who killed without batting an eye.
In the Demonic sect, in terms of strength, the Netherworld Ghost sect was not ranked in the top 5. However, in terms of ruthlessness, the Netherworld Ghost sect’s disciples were definitely in the top 3.
If they were unhappy, they would directly kill someone.
Therefore, the weak Lu Li did not dare to provoke anyone.
Fortunately, the disciples of the Demonic sect who came and went did not seem to care about a weakling like him.
Soon, Lu Li walked to the door of the Scripture Depository.
It was called the Scripture Depository, but in fact, it was a thirty-three story tall black stone giant building. It reached into the sky and into the clouds, connecting the stars and the moon. It was very magnificent.
Around the Scripture Depository, there were also streaks of black and white light flashing.
It was a formation.
If there were any unusual movements, the formation would be activated, and even demigods would die instantly.
Moreover, there were god-like level ancient monsters hidden in the Scripture Depository.
Lu Li held his breath, raised his foot, and stepped into the door of the Scripture Depository.
As soon as he entered, he saw a white-haired old man sitting by the door, resting with his eyes closed.
He was also wearing a human skull necklace on his neck.
Lu Li did not dare to look too much. He quickly walked over and began to search for demonic techniques on the bookshelves on the first floor.
The first floor was enormous, with a length and width of more than 3 miles.
There were also many people in there.
Most of them were qi refinement stage and foundation stage disciples.
Lu Li, a first level qi refinement stage fellow, did not stand out in the crowd.
He was very serious as he checked the jade slips one by one.
“Lotus Heart Technique requires the extraction of living human bones… not suitable.”
“The Demon Snake Eye Technique requires the extraction of a hundred pairs of human eyes… it’s not suitable.”
“The Demon Sword Art requires the extraction of yin energy, which is refined into the heart and lungs, and the inhalation and exhalation of the sword. Eh, this is not bad… 50 years of initial success? Forget it.”
Lu Li’s brows furrowed even more as he looked over.
As expected of the Demonic sect.
The tens of thousands of cultivation techniques collected on this floor were all demonic cultivation techniques. They either required the extraction of human eyes or the extraction of bones and blood energy. It was extremely sinister and vicious.
Even some other demonic techniques like the Golden Shield Technique and Iron Clothes Art needed to be infused with human blood and ghostly qi.
After searching for a long time, there was actually not a single suitable one!
It was not easy to find a few that could be cultivated. However, it would take at least fifty years, at most a hundred years.
Even if he had a cheat, it was probably too late.
He only had one month left!
Lu Li’s expression was awful.
However, he still did not give up. Hence, he continued to look for the suitable one.
After not knowing how long had passed, he came to the last bookshelf, reached out to pick up a jade slip, began to look at the small characters engraved on it.
“Four Erosion Magic Technique, heart erosion… not suitable.”
Lu Li took a look, and he directly put it back.
Then he picked up the next jade slip.
He picked up numerous jade slips, and he also put them back to the shelf.
By the time he put down the last jade slip, his face was as black as coal.
There were more than 10,000 techniques on the first floor, but none of them were suitable for him!
Could it be that he could only wait for death?
“Brat, you are so picky. You don’t like any of the demonic techniques on this floor?”
Suddenly, a deep bell-like voice rang out beside him.
Lu Li turned his head to look.
It was the white-haired old man wearing the human skull necklace. He was over two meters tall, and his eyes were fierce, like a giant bear that devoured people.
It was obvious that he was an expert.
Moreover, how could the person who dared to guard the Scripture Depository be an ordinary person?
Lu Li pursed his lips, cupped his hands, and replied, “I dare not. I just want to pick a cultivation technique that suits me.”
“Hmph? I see that your aptitude is excellent, and most of the cultivation techniques here are suitable for you! Why don’t you just pick one?”
The white-haired old man asked condescendingly.
“Uh… these cultivation techniques are not bad, but I want a demonic technique that isn’t so bloody. Doesn’t need to collect people’s blood and bones, and doesn’t absorb ghostly qi to cultivate.”
Lu Li explained.
“What a joke! Our Netherworld Ghost sect is a Demonic sect. If we don’t kill people and raise ghosts, what kind of Demonic sect are we? You brat, you actually don’t want to cultivate this kind of demonic technique? Speak, are you a spy sent by the good ones?”
The white-haired old man shouted loudly.
His voiced sounded like lightning, exploding beside Lu Li’s ears.
It almost shattered Lu Li’s eardrums.
The strange thing was that the white-haired old man shouted so loudly that the surrounding Demonic sect disciples seemed to not hear him.
It was a barrier!
Those who could casually set up a barrier were at least at the Jin Dan stage.
At this time, Lu Li came back to his senses and said with a wry smile, “Elder, have you ever seen such a bad spy from the good ones? If I really was a spy, I’m afraid that by the end of the month, I would have been killed by my master.”
The white-haired old man nodded and turned to leave.
At this moment, Lu Li gritted his teeth and stepped forward to block the way. He cupped his hands and asked, “Elder, do you have a cultivation technique suitable for me to cultivate? Can you give me a copy of it?”
The white-haired old man’s eyes focused on Lu Li.
The pressure was so enormous that it pressed on Lu Li’s shoulder.
Lu Li only felt as if he was carrying a mountain on his shoulders and was about to be crushed into a meat patty.
However, he still gritted his teeth and did not take a step back.
Suddenly, the pressure eased and the white-haired old man praised. “Good! I saw that you have some tenacity, so I’ll give it to you. However, I’ll not give it to you so easily, so I still have to test you!”
Lu Li’s expression brightened and he cupped his hands. “Elder, please test me.”
“Good! I’ll ask you a question.” The white-haired old man touched the human skull on his chest. After pondering for a moment, he frowned and asked, “Can the toad eats the swan?”
That question had a deep meaning.
Lu Li immediately understood.
The white-haired old man urged him with dissatisfaction.
“Yes, it can!”
Lu Li rolled his eyes and cupped his hands.
“Oh? The toad can really have a taste of the swan?”
The white-haired old man’s eyes began to shine.
“It really can. However, what a toad eats are all the swans that were shot by other the hunters,” Lu Li answered honestly.
Hearing this answer, the white-haired old man’s face instantly turned black.
There was a faint green light flashing above his head.
“I wonder if I passed the test?”
Seeing the old man’s ugly expression, Lu Li carefully probed.
“Hmph! You have passed!”
The white-haired old man’s face darkened. He grabbed out 2 jade slips from thin air and threw them over.
“Thank you, elder.”
Lu Li’s face lit up, and he hurriedly caught and thanked the old man.
“These are the cultivation techniques that I obtained from killing 2 demigods in the past. I’ll give it to you now! Get lost! You’ve ruined my good mood!”
With that said, the white-haired old man waved his hand with a dark expression.
A gust of strong wind blew.
The world spun, and with a bang, Lu Li fell from the sky to the ground.
When he got up to take a look, he found that he had already returned to the mountain peak of Demonic Devil.
At the foot of the mountain was his cave.
Did he say the wrong thing just now?
Lu Li was a little puzzled.
However, he did not care anymore. With an excited mood, he ran all the way to the foot of the mountain and entered his cave.
He took out the jade slips and read it. He knew the name of the techniques:
“Purple Clouds Sun Refining Sutra.”
