[Episode 16] Yu Jing, my close buddy. It's a pity that you were so young however... We plan to meet at Shao Lin. What a pity... I'm all by my own in this martial arts world now. Brother Dong Fang, you... Don't... You saved my life this time. In fact I should go with you till the end at all cost. But I'm not interested in the fighting in the martial arts world. All I want to do is improving my swordsmanship. Brother Mou, goodbye. Brother Dong Fang. Wait a minute. You are too naive. Chang Wu Niang is a scum of the martial arts world. How can you take her words seriously? What's more, even if Lan Yu Jing did felt and die, the Swordsmanship picture should still be out there somewhere. Why don't we go and search for it? Besides, Neither Lan Yu Jing nor his body has been found yet. As his close buddy, if he is dead, shouldn't you go to Shao Lin Temple to take care of the matters that left behind by him? Okay. I will go to Shao Lin Temple with you, on one condition. What condition? I want to visit the Shao Lin Temple formally and compete with them on the swordsmanship.
Brother Dong Fang! Do you only care for the swordsmanship? All I care is the swordsmanship! You father was a spy. He deserves to die. No, he wasn't! My grand master told me that he wasn't! I saw it with my own eyes! He was a spy! Look. No! Pleas enjoy. Yong Master. We went though all the troubles to drag Dong Fang Liang here. In the end you let him go. All our efforts are wasted. How can we report to the Sect Leader when we are home? Everybody is going to Shao Lin Temple. Everybody is looking for Lan Yu Jing. Only they took different paths. We'll meet there in the end. Is there anything wrong? Will Dong Fang Liang do as we say? He might run away by now Grand Master, don't worry. Dong Fang Liang will never run away. All we need to do is to send people to wait at the gate of Shao Lin Temple. He will arrive and ask for a competition on martial arts. Why are you so certain? Young Master is rather at ease. He must be very confident and keep Dong Fang under total control. I don't need so many people here.
Everything is under control. You two go rest and wait for my orders nearby. I'll reach to you when necessary. Okay. No! We'll always worry about you if you're left alone. I got my plan. Then goodbye, Young Master. Let's go. The heaven and earth communicates with each other and everything goes well. The emperor and civilians communicates well then the country prospers. Qian means Yang (positive), Kun means Yin (negative). The heaven means Yang (positive), and the earth means Yin (negative). TaiJi turns around and the positive and negative are combined. The combined status can last forever with infinite vitality. Grand Master. I understand the meaning of peaceful mind. I used to be too obsessed, and so eager to find the truths from others. I was drowning by this obsession. I'll still keep looking for the truth. No matter what the result it is, I can accept it with a peaceful mindset now.
Please hold your step. Dong Fang Liang from Kunlun Sect wants to pay a visit to Master Wu Ben. Master Wu Ben is in closed training. Please come another day. Could you please tell me when his training is finished? Sorry, I don't know. Please leave. Yu Jing, finally you wake up. I wake up totally now. I was so worried about you just now. Master. How long have I been in this closed training? Half a month almost. It's time. We're here. Stop there. I'm Lan Yu Jing from Wudang Sect. My sect leader sent me to visit Master Ben Wu You are sent by Leader Mou, the Sect leader of Wudang? Well... We are sent by Sect Leader Wu Xiang. Please leave. Please. Why? Hi, master, we traveled all the way from Mount Wudang to Shao Lin Temple. We're here to pay a visit to Master Ben Wu. We mean no harm. Could you please let us through? - Wait. - Qiao. Someone is coming. Let's wait. These two guys are alive as Young Master expected. Come back. I'm Ben Wu. Could you tell me about your business here? I'm Lan Yu Jing. My sect master sent me to visit Master Ben Wu.
Young man. Unfortunately our temple is closed to visitors today. Please come another day. Why do you monks of Shao Lin Temple act so weirdly? You are out here already. Why do you close the gate? Even a major sect like you shouldn't be rejective like this. It's rude. I'm definitely gonna go through this gate. What can you do with me? Amitabha. If you two are destined to meet with Buddhism, then we can meet anywhere in this world. It's late now. I believe it's going to be a full-moon night. You just leave like that? Do you have any idea of the dangers we've been through on the journey here? Let's go for now. And you dare to reject us like this! - Let's go. - Get out of my way! You're so rude! Let's go! Let's go. Why did you drag me away from there? We took plenty of effort to get to Shao Lin Temple. And they just shut us out. What shall we do? It seemed that Master Ben Wu hit me with a palm-push. In fact, during a blink of an eye he pointed my forehead 3 times with different gestures . He did it so fast that normal people won't notice it. Really? If my guess is right,
he told me to meet at 23:00 tonight I shouldn't have blamed him at that time... Master Ben Wu is accomplished in Buddhism. He won't hold a grudge against you. Amitabha. Amitabha. Shao Lin Temple must be in trouble too. Or Master Ben Wu doesn't have to be so careful. Well. Stop guessing. We shall have a rest. I need to get up for the 23:00 appointment. If you ask me, I'd say that someone tailed after us from Mount Wudang all the way here. You're their target. You have to be very careful. You are really reckless. Is my guess wrong? Amitabha, young man. Master Ben Wu waited for a long time over there. This way please. Thanks. Young man, this way please. Night to meet you, Master. Please get up. The temple has to be closed to visitor earlier today. Please don't be angry about it. I won't. There are a lot of forces trying to fight the imperial court. The imperial court also tries hard to keep the martial arts world in control. Shao Lin Temple as a sect of long history is also under intensive monitoring of the henchmen of imperial court. You might be in trouble if I let you in today in the daytime. You are so thoughtful. Thanks a lot.
Sect leader Wu Xiang sent you, didn't he? Yes, Master. Wu Xiang is my grand master. My name is Lan Yu Jing. Did anything happen to Leader Wu Xiang? My grand master... He's killed by Mou Cang Lang. What? Amitabha. Leader Wu Xiang and I were friends for many years. He's benevolent and kind. However he died so tragically. I'm sorry for your loss. Did Leader Wu Xiang leave any words for me? Yes. My grand master gave me a letter and asked me to meet you in Shao Lin Temple. Let me see it. The letter said you took the red pill. But I don't notice any sign of internal injury shown on you. I'm about to tell you this strange experience. At that time I was beaten by that snake. However, the weird thing is that I'm not poisoned. Instead my circulations of Qi and blood turned smooth and fluently. Is that what we called "beating a kind of poison with another one"? That is the reason. That poison snake neutralized most part of the impact of the red pill you ate by mistake.
There do be something like this? In fact as to that snake, it was given to me by Leader Wu Xiang as a kind of medicine. Medicine made from this snake can heal the wound, improve your health, and improve your level of martial arts. I'm a monk my religious faith doesn't allow my to kill any life. So I set the snake free in the mountain. Never thought that it finished its mission and saved you in the end. What a coincidence. I got to live thanks to my grand master and you. It seems that you are quite worried, and pretty anxious. Is there anything bothering you? Yes, Master. I have one tough question now. Please tell me about it. These days, I'm distressed by the myth of my family. So many cases remain unsolved. I'm worried about these things day and night. Could you please show me the right path please? There are 3 lines for you in the letter of Leader Wu Xiang. Do you remember them? Yes. The Letter from grand Master said
Be peaceful as still water. Be brave and charge against the stream. Don't interfere the law of the nature. These are what I want to tell you too. I understand the "Be peaceful as still water" part. but how can you charge against the stream while not interfere the law of the nature? Aren't they opposite to each other? All you have to do is to finish the last will of Leader Wu Xiang. And then you will understand the profound meaning of these words naturally. Thanks a lot, Master. Leader Wu Xiang said in the letter that you want to meet the a cooking monk named Hui Ke Yes. Is Hui Ke at Shao Lin now? Yes. I'll arrange a meeting for you. Great! Thank you very much, Master. Amitabha. You are quite lucky on the way. A fault on the right side. And everything goes well. It's your fault. Leave us behind and have fun all on your own. I got something urgent to do as well. It's not possible that I stay by your side forever. Okay, tell me, What case is more important than the life of your dear grand daughter? If Yu Jing was not with me,
You would be in great regret, and crying over my dead body! Little girl! Don't say those unlucky words! Qiao! Qiao! Yu Jing's back! Yu Jing. Yu Jing. Qiao. Qiao. Why are you so happy? Cause I got some progress. Go and see who is here. Grandpa Zheng! Come in, little ones. Grandpa Zheng. Come in. Let's go. Grandpa Zheng. Jing. I've learned what you've been through along the journey. I was careless and had you two underwent all those troubles. It's over now. What's more, Grandpa Zheng, I visited Master Ben Wu and he promised to arrange a meet with Hui Ke for me Really? That's a great news. Jing, I think, you should have figured out the relationship between Geng Jing Shi and you. Is Geng Jing Shi indeed related to me? He is your father. My last name is not Lan, but Geng. Yes. The name Geng Yu Jing
is actually your father Geng Jing Shi's idea. Grandpa, Grandpa! Yu Jing just recovered. I'm worried that he can't take it. Qiao, it's fine. I've been through it all. I won't be afraid anymore. Grandpa Zheng, I want to know all the story. I can take it. Good. Over the years, I've been trying to find out the truth. 18 years ago, all the spies set beyond the Great Wall by His Majesty were managed by Leader Wu Xiang and me. Therefore, of course I know about the identity of each and every of them. On my honor, I guarantee that your father and mother are innocent. They are not the spies from Jin at all. Father! Mother! Eighteen years ago, the deaths of your parents, your grandpa-in-law and Elder Wu Ji were all related to a man in black. And this man in black was wounded by the Seven Stars Swordsman. As long as we find him, everything will be clear.
About this man in black, there are many details I need to tell you. Wu Ji Palm. Seven Stars Swordsmanship. We had no idea who the masked man and the man in black are. And Elder Wu Ji was heavily injured at the time and couldn't chase after them. All the leads were lost. In the martial arts world, the only person good at the Seven Stars Swordsmanship is the Eldest of the Five Younger Gallants, Guo Dong Lai. and the monk Hui Ke in Shaolin Temple is the youngest of the Five Younger Gallants. It seems like there's only Hui Ke who can recognize Guo Dong Lai. No wonder Grand Master insisted in the letter that I had to find Master Hui Ke. We have to find Guo Dong Lai first in order to find out the truth. With him, it won't be difficult to get to the man in black. Grandpa Zheng, where is Guo Dong Lai right now? That's right. How do we find him? I think this can only be answered by Hui Ke in Shaolin Temple.
Leader. Shaolin Temple. Amitabha. It's you. Why are you here again? Two Masters. I'm sorry. Shaopin Temple is a sacred site and a retreat. Please don't make any noise. Another guy who is crazy about martial arts. You should leave. Shaolin Temple does not take apprentice easily. Dong Fang Liang from Kunlun Sect. I'm here to challenge Master Hui Ke in the Shaolin Temple. Please let him know. Hui Ke? There is no monk called Hui Ke in Shaolin Temple. Except the Second Patriarch of Buddhism. After Dharma, Patriarch Hui Zu ranks next. I remember. There is an old monk who cooks named Hui Ke. Is there? Why am I not aware? He has been making meals in Xiangji Kitchen for 30 years. Everyone calls him the cooking monk instead of his name. You should go. Hui Ke knows nothing about martial arts. Even if I don't challenge him, at least I can go inside and meet him. He is just a monk who cooks. What do you want him for? Please don't make it difficult, two Masters. No way. I'm simply here to look for a friend. Why are you two going against me? A guest like you is not welcomed in Shaolin Temple.
Please, wait a second here. Let me bring him to you. Senior Hui Ke, there is a young man from Mount Wudang. Master Ben Wu asked you to see him. Mount Wudang or not, don't you see that I'm busy? You should go now. Let me cook for you. Clean the bean residue. You have to grind it slowly. -Yes. -Finer. Okay, I'll go slowly. Cover the tofu. -You should go now! -Ask him to wait! Everyone, hurry up! People are waiting! -Yes. -Okay. Hurry up! Yes. Add some firewood! To the most! Master Hui Ke. Master Hui Ke! You don't need to go out. Good. I will leave to you. What are you looking me for? I'm Lan Yu Jing. No, Geng Yu Jing. Good to see you. [Monk of Shaolin Temple, Hui Ke] I'm not a Bodhisattva. [Monk of Shaolin Temple, Hui Ke] Why are you kneeling down to me? [Monk of Shaolin Temple, Hui Ke] Stand up, stand up. The one thing I hate most is that a young man kneeling down easily. Stand up. Young man, you have such an advanced ability in this age. That's impressive. Is your internal martial arts taught by Master Wu Xiang? Grand Master did give me some guidance. Unfortunately, I am so slow-witted that I only grasp a little. Right, Grand Master left me a letter, and he mentioned you. Please have a look. I haven't seen you Grand Master for years.
How is the old man? Grand Master... Grand Master passed away. There is no Bodhi-tree, nor stand of a mirror bright. Life and death are all visions. Your father is Geng Jing Shi? Do you know my father? Many years ago, his story was well known in the martial arts world. I've heard some of them. Follow me to the back mountain. Sure. After you. -You! -Hui Ke! Master Hui Ke! You! You! I just want to see Master Hui Ke. Just to see him! Master Hui Ke! Stop it! Senior Yuan Tong. What's wrong? He wants to challenge Hui Ke and doesn't leave no matter what we said. Master, I'm only here to learn some martial arts from a friend. The challenge has no bad intention. But they keep questioning and wouldn't let me in. What do you want to challenge? Swordmanship. If you want to start a challenge in Shaolin Temple at least I need to know what you've got. Hand me my staff. I believe that my father was innocent, so I have to find the Seven Stars Swordsman, Chevalier Guo, to figure it out. Guo Dong Lai is a famous swordsman in Cang. His swordsmanship is very unique. Once hit by his sword, seven marks are left. Thus, he was elegantly referred to as the Seven Stars Swordsman. More than 20 years ago, he headed to the region to the east of the Liao River and never came back.
Some people said he was dead. Others said he has changed his name. Since then, there has been no news of him in the martial arts world. But I have to find him. You are alone with no help, and you are trying to find a swordsman who has retired from the world. It will be like finding a needle in a haystack. Master Hui Ke, could you help me? Grand Master once told me to go against the current. I swear I will find out the truth at the time and restore the reputation of my father. I know I couldn't achieve it by myself. That's why I want to ask you for help. Master Hui Ke. That's good. Indeed the man chosen by Master Wu Xiang. Thank you for your compliment. Martial arts can be achieved by practice, but the mind requires much more than that. Ignorance can extinct the wisdom, and consciousness can bring the wisdom back. Remember, don't let hatred blind your mind. Follow me. Master, please. Please. Is he from Kunlun Sect? Why is he using Wudang Sect's Swordsmanship? He is using the martial arts from the other sects to confuse Senior Yuan Tong. Is this the Winding Path to a Secluded Place of Qingcheng Sect? Taiji Swordsmanship of Wudang Sect. The World's Excellence of Emei Sect. How come he is using the Emei swordsmanship now? What's this? It seems familiar. Look at his hand. Is this something from our sect? Dragon Fatching Palm of Shaolin Sect.
You do have impressive martial arts, combining the Flying Eagle Sword with Wudang Sword into one. An outstanding junior of Kunlun Sect. The younger generation is promising indeed. Thank you, Master, but in this challenge, I lost. Amitabha. Goodbye, Master. Alright, put it over. Yes. Cover it nicely. Don't make any leak. Master Hui Ke, these are what you do everyday? Of course. There are thousands of guests in the temple everyday. And the senior. They all have to eat. My job is a long haul. But with your ability, isn't it a waste to be a cook? This is how we adapt to the situation. There is wisdom in every dish, and any place can be the place to practice. Set the table for me. I need to get the meal ready for Master Ben Wu. Sure! Senior Hui Ke! how can you ask the guest to work? It's fine. My parents are farmer. I used to do this a lot. You are an important guest of Shaolin Temple. Senior Hui Ke, he is the guest of Master Ben Wu. He cannot be slighted. Junior, the meal for Master Ben Wu is ready. Can I ask you to send it?
Okay. Airight. We can eat now. Here. Why are you not eating? Master, can I ask you something? Can I ask you to leave the temple and find Chevalier Guo with me? I'm afraid that I'm going to let you down. Let me down? For nearly 30 years, I've been cooking here in the temple. I never leave the temple or have any interest in the secular world. Besides, without any clues, how are we going to find him? Is there any other solution? The young man is called Dong Fang Liang. He is from Kunlun Sect. Yesterday, a man came to see Hui Ke under his Grand Master Leader Wu Xiang's direction. And today, a man of Kunlun Sect came for, again, Hui Ke. It seems like Hui Ke is a man with a story. Has he been cooking in the temple for nearly 30 years? Didn't look like someone with any great skill. Amitabha. Leader, what should we do? Everything follows the law of cause and effect. I made things difficult for Master. Since Master is reluctant to help, Yu Jing will take a leave. Take care. I won't see you off. Master. Leader. Leaving? Seems like things didn't go well between you two.
Master Ben Wu, Master Hui Ke only has Buddhist practice in mind. I will not be forcing him. Hui Ke, what's your reason? Leader, I've done with the secular world. Isn't is a problematic idea? If your mind is like still water, you can practice Buddhism anywhere. There is nothing in the first place, Whereon can the dust and dirt creep? Leader, I've taken too many lives and had too many sins. Now, I follow the Buddha wholeheartedly. I've got tired of fighting and killing. Peace is all I ask for. Martial arts are irrelevant to being in or out of the secular world. You two can get to know each other better with martial arts. As long as you remain calm and peaceful, it will be a self-cultivation as well. Leader. Follow me.
