Therefore, this is what needs to be studied by learned scholars.
For the Filthy and Foul Qi (Hui Qi)has not yet been eliminated from the body.
Neither not yet has the Cavern of Perfection (Dong Zhen- corresponds to the

Shí Fāng Wēi Wèi Zhì Tiān Zhèng Dé Kĕ Fú Yù Dì Qí Shù Fú Mó Líng

Qiān Shén Míng Hù Mén Sī Jīng Zūn Miào Dú Bŭ Yù Jīng Dù Rén

that only a single step is needed to [enter] the Jade Capital.
