Chapter 991: Preparation for Dao Manifestation

Yi Yun had never exited Spirit Gathering Palace ever since he entered it.

The ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’ floated in front of him while his his eyes were tightly shut.

And around Yi Yun, there were occasional images that flashed.

Cultivation knew nothing about time. Furthermore, when it came to cultivating the Dao of Time at the level of the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’, even if many warriors were given the opportunity to read the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’, it would be like they were reading an indecipherable book, leaving them baffled.

And most terrifying of all was that when cultivating the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’, they would immerse themselves into the turbulence of time, losing themselves. Time might pass in a flash and by the time they awaken, too much time would have passed but they would’ve gained nothing to speak of!

That was the most horrifying matter regarding the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’. It was also something that Felicitous Rain Lord pondered deeply over before he allowed Yi Yun to cultivate the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’.

Yi Yun was in no hurry to immediately begin cultivating the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’. Instead, he immersed himself in the passage of time, and from there, comprehend the meaning of time. Slowly, he felt he himself become an embodiment of time.

The flashing figures were of no importance to Yi Yun, they were just scenes that had previously appeared in the Spirit Gathering Palace as vestiges of time.

Yi Yun also saw his past, as well as people that he happened to chance upon, as well as their past.

Everyone had their own time, but time treated everyone equally.

Powerful warriors possessed extended lifespans, but the worlds that they resided in could be destroyed. They would also slowly wane over a long process. There was no such thing as true eternity.


Yi Yun breathed out while in his meditation.

The air that he spewed out was at times fast and at times slow. It would flow backwards sometimes when he breathed out.

Yi Yun’s body also began to undergo changes. His appearance returned to point of when he looked even younger, but it kept switching back to his original appearance. He went from a nascent look to a sharp look, and from a sharp look to a genteel look, and from a genteel look back to a nascent look. It kept repeating.

Yi Yun suddenly opened his eyes!

“So that is how it is. By training one’s body to become an embodiment of time before cultivating the Three-foot Passage Sword, it would be perfection.”

Yi Yun was thankful for Felicitous Rain Lord’s arrangements. The cultivation technique and sword technique supplemented each other and by combining both together, it would be extremely powerful once mastered.

The ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’ had five stages, but the breakthrough of every stage required a great deal of time and it was extremely difficult. Furthermore, the cultivation of each stage had a corresponding minimum level of cultivation needed.

“The first stage requires Dao Manifestation, but despite not having broken through to the Dao Manifestation realm, my Yuan Qi intensity is already sufficient. Even if it’s not enough, consuming some relics and herbs would do.”

Yi Yun took some relics and the spirit herb that he had obtained from the Door of Misty Rain out of his interspacial ring.

The spirit herb was supreme-grade to begin with. Many warriors coveted it during the assessment. Even Tianya Haoyue wanted one for his breakthrough to the Dao Manifestation realm. However, those people would never have thought that Yi Yun would use it for the cultivation of a cultivation technique.

Looking at the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’ in front of him, Yi Yun stopped moving as memories flashed past his mind.

By cultivating the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’, the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ would become his past.

Back in the Tian Yuan world, he had dual cultivated the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ with Lin Xintong. All those scenes had surfaced in Yi Yun’s eyes a moment ago.

“Now that I’ve become a Divine Lord’s disciple, cultivating the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’ will be the moment that I truly move up to the upper echelons of the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven ever since I came here.”

“Xintong, no matter where you are, I will find you, even if the 12 Empyrean Heavens are vast and with danger lurking at every turn.”

“Time to begin. This reclusion is for me to finish cultivating the first stage of the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’. I wonder how long it will take. Without any talent, it would be difficult to comprehend it using an entire lifetime. There might be a possible of losing myself in the turbulence of time, never to awaken!”

Yi Yun closed his eyes and a fluctuation appeared from the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’. A abstruse aura that seemed to come from a remote past began to swirl around Yi Yun.

Slowly, the entire Spirit Gathering Palace was enveloped by the aura.

The Spirit Gathering Palace began phasing in and out of existence. At times, it would look normal, and at other times, it would look like a ruin.

Time was formless but the changes that it brought were tangible.

With Yi Yun’s Yuan Qi draining away, the spirit herbs beside him flew up. They gathered together mid-air to produce drips of spirit fluid that dripped into Yi Yun’s body.

Immediately, Yuan Qi surged as Yi Yun’s skin effused a glow.

But Yi Yun, who was busy cultivating, did not seem to know anything about this.

As though he had manifested himself as sand, he quietly witnessed the passage of time.

The ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ Yuan Qi in Yi Yun’s body was slowly replaced by the abstruse aura, as his bearing also began changing.


Yi Yun continued to keep his eyes closed, but a sword beam flashed around him.

While cultivating the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’, he understood the existence of time, while he simultaneously cultivated the Three-foot Passage Sword.

Runes even began to appear beneath Yi Yun. These runes gradually came together and formed the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence.

The 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence was the highest martial art that Yi Yun had learned up to date. It represented the Major Dao of Destruction, but it did not mean that it was immutable. Yi Yun could inject the Dao that he had into the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence.

The Dao of Time runes were like vestiges of all matter that landed on the river of time. From the Cloud Wilderness to the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, whatever Yi Yun had seen and experienced formed into pieces of those fragments.

After these fragments were added to the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence, it made the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence look as though it was a wheel of time that bore the load of endless history.

The wheel of time transformed into a sword beam as it slashed out in front of Yi Yun. It was silent and left no trace, but after the sword beam slashed, the ground in front of Yi Yun cracked. It was covered in moss that spread out for a thousand feet.

But due to the palace array’s workings, the crack gradually repaired itself.

The years flew by by without one knowing how long had passed.

Only at an unexpected moment did Yi Yun suddenly open his eyes.

In his eyes, it was like there was a passage of time that was like surging water. And his aura seemed to have additional feeling of time.

He seemed to be immersed in the world, and was part of the world.

“The first stage of the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’… completed.” Yi Yun breathed out lightly.

He looked at the relics and spirit herbs on the ground that had been completely consumed.

As for his hair, it had become a lot longer.

“How long has it been? Two years? Three?”

Yi Yun did not know. While cultivating the laws of time, the passage of time had turned into oblivion. That was the profound mystery of the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’.

Yi Yun circulated the Yuan Qi in his body. He could clearly sense the transformations in his body. The boundless Yuan Qi in his body surged out like a river, but it felt like there was something imperfect about it.

“This tiny bit of imperfection might be a result of me not having manifested my Dao or have any Dao fruits.”

“Should I manifest my Dao?”

Such a thought flashed in Yi Yun’s mind.

He felt that he had already finished all of his preparations.

His Yuan Qi was brimming and everything had reached its peak.

Having redone his cultivation, all of the martial arts that he had grasped were perfectly merged with the ‘Book of Heaven’s Advent’.

Yi Yun would improve in his realm by manifesting his Dao.

It could be said that be everything was perfect when it came to timing, location and person.

“Time to manifest my Dao!”

Yi Yun sat back down on the ground. In Spirit Gathering Palace, he was determined to manifest his Dao fruits in one fell swoop and break through to the Dao Manifestation realm!

By stepping onto the path of heaven ascension, and manifesting his own Great Dao!

What warriors practiced wasn’t martial arts, but their fates.

As a mortal, he wanted to go against the heavens.

Past thoughts flashed in Yi Yun’s mind as his aura began to rise.

In the abode, Felicitous Rain Lord, who was meditating, opened his eyes and looked at Spirit Gathering Palace.

Yi Yun’s aura was increasing in intensity. The sky above the Spirit Gathering Palace was filled with wind and clouds, but as immense Heaven Earth Yuan Qi gathered, it swept all the lingering fog around the immortal mountain away.

The Heaven Earth Yuan Qi circulated to form a wheel of time, and in the wheel, there were sword beams flying around it with golden light flashing.

“He’s manifesting his Dao.” Felicitous Rain Lord watched quietly. “I wonder what that child’s Dao fruits will be like?”

    1. ROFL. Joke’s on you, the answer doesn’t really matter, they just want you to do a physical action. Try it, just type in any random answer, it still passes.

  1. Thanks for the chapter
    Time, destruction, pure Yang, maybe sword?
    But wasn’t the great empress heart sutra supposed to be something really special, or was that only in comparison to a minor world or did it have to do with him not being able to dual cultivate it with that girl

    1. Whitering and Space I guess
      Remember that Azure Yang Lord only have the first volume of Yan God Manual, and remnant pages of Nine Nether Sacred Manual. They didn’t have the full Canons

      1. Withering should be a subdivision of time, and he’s not that proficient in Space, or he’d get dao fruits with saber and fire as well

    1. Seem like you guessed right, no release today. He’s probably not satisfied with the next chapter and editing it. Hopefully, it will not be one fruit per chapter.

  2. Well he’s finally gonna form his Dao fruits. Now to find out which ones he’ll form. Pure Yang, Sword, Space, Destruction and Time. Can he form all of them ? Since all of them are pretty much needed now.
    Wonder how many leaves his fruits will have… it’s said in chap 917 that “6 or 7-leaf Dao fruits was already rare. An 8-leaf Dao fruit could be said to be the standard of a peerless genius of an entire sect. As for nine-leaf Dao fruits, they were nearly a legend.”

    1. I think he’ll eventually form a nine-leaf dao fruit but I don’t think it’ll be happening next chapter. His nine-leaf would probably have to be the destruction dao and he’s barely comprehended much of it. I feel like we’ll see him failing or deciding not to enter dao manifestation.

      I’m more interested in which dao fruits he’s going to form. Maybe at a later time they’ll all be slightly upgraded.

  3. Do these guys not have clocks? Keeping track of time externally is a basic thing. “what time is it? *turns head to look at clock* ah, ok”

  4. Yi Yun also always said that the Great Empress Heart Sutra was easier for Lin Xington than for himself. This new cultivation technique might just end up fitting him better.

  5. Well i guess I feel sorry for LX. While yi yun is in protection of a divine lord and having a good and fine life, LX is out there somewhere tsss. Dao COMPANION? WIFE? I think its Bullsh*t

    Thats why i always look up to ji ning’s character.

    1. Until he get stronger, he can’t travel the 10,000 Fey Empyrean heaven. That’s just courting death, not to mention he doesn’t have a spirit cruiser and it would be impossible to go from one end to another end in one nation much less throughout the heavens. Also he is a human in the Fey sector, which are looked down on and even be caught as a slave.

  6. “This tiny bit of perfection might be a result of me not having manifested my Dao or have any Dao fruits.”

    OK this trumped me for quite a while so I posted this comment. Here : “perfection” should be “imperfection”.

  7. One thing I don’t understand is why the Great Empress Heart Sutra is considered lower grade when it’s actually the fusion of two top-grade cultivation techniques that originate from the 12 empyrean heavens ? Also, the Azure Yang Lord was obviously at a much higher level than Yi Yun when he used it to cultivate, and I remember reading about him and the empress breaking through several realms when using it.

    1. I think its cause he lost Xintong that it would be deemed lower status. The dao of time has always trumped most daos in LNs like this, plus he had previous insight into the space dao which can easily be merged (most of the time.) ANYWAY as a solo practitioner, The newer stuff seems more power for him IMO

      1. It’s not just because he’s solo now, the Great Empress Heart Sutra is indeed the best cultivation method you can find in lower realm. But if the things you use to compare are cultivation methods in 12 Empyrean Heavens, while Great Empress Heart Sutra isn’t the lowest in grade it will at most be at middle grade, not even comparable to high grade or the naturally formed cultivation methods. And Great Empress Heart Sutra is more beneficial for Lin Xintong, it doesn’t matter who her partner is as long as he has yang body will do.

    2. You forgot, Azure Yang Lord was badly injured when he exiled into the Sinkhole, plus he drop level and unable to cultivate his original skill, beside the Heart Sutra was accidental creation when he tried to teach the Great Empress to cultivate. Furthermore, before they able to fully flesh out the Heart Sutra, the Dark God was awakening.

  8. I’m curious because it’s often mentioned how people change their cultivation method for a better one. Does doing that nullifies everything that was acquired with previous cultivation method? What i mean is that if i were to cultivate fire based cultivation technique and acquired some fire arts (or whatevah it may be called as) and if i were to start cultivating let’s say sword cultivation technique. Would it those fire arts disappear? I’m asking because it was never mentioned (if i remember correctly) and changing cultivation method isn’t only shown here in TWM but many other novels.

  9. It’s so lame that he forget his past life experience when he recall past memory, It should help him gain more advantage broad his vision while he try to gain insight dao of time or dao of life or other dao but he neglect this unique special life experience treat them like nothing and forget that he wasn’t born in this world.
