stuff but the buyer refused to pay in full and the walked away. Lu Ju would not
bother to let him walk away.

monies, the beggar kept asking for more and threw vulgar words at him, Lu Ju
left the scene with a smile.
Lu Ju was once a shepherd; during his tenure a hungry tiger was eyeing to
snatch the goats under his care. Lu Ju protected the goats by sending them down
to the hillside and stood in front of the Tiger, the hungry tiger was at awe to
see this and left the place without hurting Lu Ju.

gorgeous lady came by and asking for a night to rest since she was lost. That
night, this beautiful lady was flirting and trying to get Lu Ju to have sex, but
Lu Ju was untouched by such temptation.

piece of the gold.

immediately returned to the seller.

die immediately and become immortal. No one would dare to try but Lu Ju bought
and tried the potion but nothing happened to him.

took life easy and never worried about life and death!
10:Lu Ju was alone at home and suddenly weird things had happened, ghost and
monsters were killing each other and wanted to do the same to Lu Ju, without
fear Lu Ju kept on doing his chaos without paying attention to them. Another
group of devils with blood all over tried to take Lu Ju’s life away by saying
to Lu Ju that he owed his previous life to him since in past life Lu Ju took his
life. Without any fear Lu Ju said ‘go ahead and take my life since I took
yours in past life, this is fair and square!’ All of the sudden the sky turned
blue and those ghost and devils were disappeared while looking and laughing at
him was Straight Yang Chung Le Chuen. (Who happened to be his Master and
Mentor in Taoist teaching)
10 tests proved that Lu Ju is a pure and dignity person and Master Chung is very
satisfied and happy to take Lu Ju to Nan San Her Ling to pass his secret of life
and subsequently formed a ‘Chung Lu Golden Dan’ sect of school. But Lu Ju
was not too found on the secret and instead change his formula for inner peace
and benefits more human beings; many until today practiced such path to
immortals. This is his major effort and contribution. He helped many to walk the
right path and improve the health as well as living condition of many!
