What is the official position of the inspector general?
Tang Sanzang looked confused.
Wait a minute, what kind of inspecting ambassador has half a relationship with himself?
He frowned, looking strangely strange, "Your Majesty, the poor monk..."
"Imperial Brother, you're wrong about that."
Li Er said, "You are my befriended brother, although you are a monk, but you are also considered the royal family of the Great Tang, and Jiang Aiqing is an inspector that I personally pardoned. From now on, you will be like a minister of admiralty, inspecting the world for me, so you should be the first to see it."
Li Er had said everything to this point, so Tang Sanzang naturally couldn't ignore it.
He was busy paying homage to Jiang Ji, "The poor monk has met the Inspector Jiang, Your Majesty will be able to better govern the Tang if he is assisted by a person like the Inspector."
This kind of words, he said quite smoothly.
Although it was a bit disobedient, Tang Sanzang felt that it was a true indication of his own intentions, and there was absolutely no exaggeration.
He, Tang Sanzang, was a good judge of people.
He looked at Jiang lacking in refined and scholarly manner, as well as a person, should be a talent.
Li Er wouldn't be wrong.
He thought so heartily.
But Jiang Qian smiled slightly, "Sanzang is overly praised, I'm just a little bit of meager skill."
It really couldn't be taken as praise.
At this time, Li Er also smiled, "Jiang Aiqing has the talent of the Heavenly Meridian and Earthly Meridian, so naturally, he deserves the position of inspector."
Then Li Er's voice changed and said: "Ahem, imperial brother, there is one thing I hope you will bear with me, although we have become brothers with different surnames, but no one has witnessed it yet.
How about letting Jiang Aiqing be a witness to it?"
Tang Sanzang instinctively wanted to refuse.
There was no telling how many days of delay this would take.
This trip to the Western Heavenly Spiritual Mountain, where the Buddha's ancestors lived, was already a long way away, so if we delayed some more, where would we get the chance?
It would only be long.
A hundred and eighty thousand miles away.
It's terrifying to think about.
This distance was a bit too far.
Tang Sanzang was anxious.
He really wanted to tell Li Er to resign now.
But every time the words came to his lips, he was tugged over by Li Er, either engaging in a befriending ceremony or taking Tang Sanzang to meet various ministers.
At the same time.
He had to let countless people know that he, Li Er, and Tang Sanzang had befriended each other.
This thing was making a lot of noise.
The ritual was also made up, with a great sense of letting people know.
Jiang lacked this inspector ambassador to accompany him, and during this time, the civil and military ministers of the court were aware of Jiang's existence.
They were all a bit curious about this sudden appearance of the inspector ambassador.
He was actually able to fool Li Er.
It was rare.
Ordinary people, don't try to bluff him.
It must be known that the position of inspector envoy did not exist before.
That is to say, it only exists now.
It was a new position, sort of a specially created position for Jiang Lack, enough to show Li Er's great love for Jiang Lack.
Presumably, there should be some agreement between the two that cannot be revealed.
Tang Sanzang didn't know about these things.
He only knew that Jiang Lack was strong.
Only knew that this person was very much valued by his imperial brother, Li Er, or else he wouldn't have pardoned him as an inspector of the Great Tang.
Li Er had already introduced him to him.
The Inspection Ambassador, was the only official position in the Great Tang, and as long as Jiang lacked for a day, it would not disappear.
Such a promise.
Not only was it a generous love for Jiang Lack, it was also an attitude that showed that he, Li Er, had an attitude.
From then on.
For several days in a row, he held celebrations, all with Jiang Lack as his companion.
There was also Tang Sanzang, the Venerable Master of the Golden Mountain Temple.
Only, Tang Sanzang was always distracted, his mind was not originally on this.
Rather, he wanted to immediately travel west to get the scriptures.
But Li Er wasn't up for it.
Always using all sorts of reasons to stall, allowing Tang Sanzang to be as anxious as possible.
Li Er could always stand on the righteousness of the situation, always make him lose the chance to refute, as well as no reason to refute to come.
Everything seemed extraordinarily calm.
He didn't understand.
And a little overwhelmed.
Half a month later.
Tang Sanzang finally couldn't stand it any longer, and he said to Li Er, "Your Majesty, to this day, my brother has been in the palace for more than ten days, and the ceremony is over, it's time to Even those who know each other, I don't know when Your Majesty will let my younger brother go to the west to get the scriptures ah."
After all, getting the scriptures was a big deal.
He was in a hurry.
Wanting to depart as soon as possible.
The purpose was merely to retrieve the true scriptures as soon as possible.
But the problem was.
There was no way for him to retrieve it now.
Li Er wouldn't let him go.
At this time.
He then said to Tang Sanzang, "O Sanzang, don't be in a hurry, it's still early, isn't it.
And you're still young, you have plenty of opportunities, so you don't need to care about time.
It is the inspector Jiang Aiqing, to celebrate your upcoming journey west to get the scriptures, specially prepared a banquet for you, this time not only invited me, but also invited the full court of civil and military officials.
Are you going to let all those civil and military ministers not see you?
You're my imperial brother, and I've promised that you'll be there, so you're making it hard for me to do so."
Tang Sanzang: "........"
He was tempted to ask, Your Majesty are you serious.
A day or two of delay was nothing.
But how are they going to stand it in the long run.
Tang Sanzang's heart wanted to cry, but he knew that since Li Er had said everything to this point, he would never say much else.
There was nothing he could do about it himself.
"Your Majesty, since you've said so, the poor monk has no choice but to go there."
He wouldn't be able to go even if he didn't.
Li Er's appearance was so clear that he had to go, and he still couldn't go without going.
"That's good, Sanzang you are my imperial brother, a brother of mine, if you don't go, it would be too disrespectful to me."
Li Er said, "You should know that this is the first time Jiang Aiqing has invited a group of ministers to a banquet, the main character is not him, nor is it the lord, nor is it that full of civil and military officials All of them, but you."
Tang Sanzang: "........"
He always felt that Li Er was fooling himself.
But no evidence could be found.
In his opinion, Li Er and Jiang Lack and the others definitely had a purpose in taking turns to invite themselves.
This comprehension Tang Sanzang still had.
Only, he couldn't say it outright now.
That would not do.
He was incomparably sad.
I thought to myself, "Just this once, I'll leave after this time when their feast is over."
Tang Sanzang was very clear.
Although the banners that Jiang lacked and the others were flying were all for the sake of pleasing him, Tang Sanzang.
After all, he was close to the Bodhisattva and also close to Li Er, who could be said to have become the most popular person in the world in one day.
To say that someone was sticking up for him, it seemed plausible.
In Tang Sanzang's heart, he always felt that this matter was strange.
Something strange ah.
Jiang lacked on the inspector ambassador's residence.
The flow of guests was as lively as a gated courtyard, when there was really talk and laughter and no white ding.
All kinds of people, in and out.
As to why the banquet was arranged in the afternoon, it was also the result of Jiang Xiao's careful consideration.
After some eating and drinking, it was almost evening.
At this point, it was impossible for Tang Sanzang to leave without shaking his face or being rude and unreasonable.
Even if he wanted to, Li Er and the others had enough reasons to stop Tang Sanzang from being wanted to leave.
"Sanzang, you shouldn't look so sad either."
Jiang Qiao said, "It's rare for us to get together and it's only right to be happy, so don't think about those unpleasant things."
Tang Sanzang's heart was suddenly chilled to the bone.
What else was there to be happy about?
Going to the West to get the scriptures was the thing he was happiest about.
Unfortunately, it was not good for him to say such words directly.
Otherwise, the impact would be huge.
He knew that by doing this, Li Er and Jiang Lack were also doing it for his own good on some level.
Getting to know more nobles would help him promote the Buddha's teachings, and even if he had to get the sutras back, he would still need to promote them.
There was also a need to translate the writings, and these things could not be done without the support of the nobles present.
Otherwise, it would only be difficult to move an inch.
That's why Tang Sanzang was silent.
Sometimes, as a human being, one had to face up to such things, human affairs well.
He couldn't ignore it and that Li Er would make him draw attention to it, "I only hope that after this time, I can escape such human emotions and can allow me to go to the West properly."
At this time.
Just as Tang Sanzang was thinking wildly, Jiang Ji suddenly said, "O Sanzang, let me ask you, what will you do when you have retrieved the true scriptures?"
"Naturally, it's to preach the Dharma, to universalize the world, and to ease the world out of suffering."
Tang Sanzang said without hesitation, a question he had really thought about.
This was the purpose and meaning of why he was going to get the scriptures.
As for the rest, none of it mattered.
Jiang Jian, on the other hand, gave Tang Sanzang a glance in a bad mood, "Sanzang, I think you're thinking too simple and too big."
Tang Sanzang was puzzled, was there something wrong with his idea?
He thought about it again and realized there was nothing wrong with it.
"There's a big problem here."
Jiang Qiao said, "And I'll continue to ask you, if you retrieve the true scriptures, how will you preach the Dharma?
By being a walking monk yourself, going around talking?
This trip to the West is a hundred and eighty thousand miles, how much time do you need to spend on it?
By the time you come back, you'll probably be dying and still need to translate those sutras, so how will you have any extra time to preach the Dharma?
Even if you could go and preach it, how many people are there within this Great Tang, can you guarantee that half of them will hear your preaching?
I'm afraid not.
Because most people, in fact, can't even solve their own subsistence problems, how can they have the opportunity, how can they have the chance to listen to your teachings.
Therefore, I'm afraid that your matter of saving the world from the sea of suffering is only going to become a dream bubble and will fall through."
Tang Sanzang panicked at the news, "How can this be, but the universal liberation of all beings from the sea of suffering, this does not What fault."
He already knew that what Jiang lacked was true, and he knew that what he said was correct.
It was a fact, a fact that he, Tang Sanzang, had to admit.
"It's the result of low productivity,"
Jiang Xiao explained, "If you want to solve this problem, you must give the law to those who have enough food to eat and warm clothes to wear.
Because, they are the nobility, the rich, the ruling class, and they control most of the people under the universal sky.
In other words, the people of this Manchu Dynasty, if they are good to the people of the world, then it is a peaceful and prosperous world, if not, then it is a chaotic world of tired white bones.
His Majesty's wisdom alone is obviously not enough to fully solve the problem, which is why he will bring you to so many banquets.
We all thought that with your wisdom and understanding, Sanzang, you should know the cause and effect of this problem.
Now it seems that the situation is not what we could have thought.
Only if you use the Buddha's teachings to ease these upper class nobles, can you give the ordinary people, a way to live.
All they desire is just a full meal, that's all."
This was also Jiang Xiao's idea.
So he synthesized it, intending to instill a bit of relevant theory into Tang Sanzang.
In this era.
It was still the so-called scholarly men who controlled the world, and it was still those high-ranking family groups.
They ruled over the common people and had some connection with those gods and Buddhas.
Seeing that Tang Sanzang was deep in thought, Jiang Ji wasn't embarrassed, "Also, these nobles are only a part of the nobles in the whole world, among them there are also the five surnames and seven looks and so on, they are the ones who are really in control of this world.
And all of them have some connection with the Gods and Buddhas, and they may not be subject to your reign, so this matter, Sanzang you have to be very careful."
Tang Sanzang: "........"
Suddenly he felt so stressed.
It was inexplicably heavy.
