In the rural northeastern mountainous regions stands a tiny Buddhist temple, named One Finger Temple. It isn’t a large one but it is extremely miraculous.

The temple has rice that emanates an aromatic fragrance.

The temple has sweet and refreshing water that rivals ambrosia.

The temple has Buddhas that grant wishes to the sincere.

The temple isn’t large but it has everything. The temple isn’t large but it has flourishing incense offerings that far exceed all temples. The temple isn’t large but it attracts both citizens and foreigners that line up overnight…

The temple has a bald but handsome monk. Every day, he would bawl, “I want to renounce asceticism! I want to marry a chick that’s not too pretty, have a cute baby, and lead a stable life!”

This novel is amazing, it has a lot of jokes throughout the story and is very interesting. Keep in mind though that although it is labeled as fantasy, supernatural and martial arts, the story is more on slice of life. It explains lots of Buddhist terms and China's cultures. So if you are here for the action then this is not suited for you.

The novel is great, funny, entertaining and above all it reflects on some interesting matters. Therefore I give it a 10/10.
It is very immersive and light to read.
Considering the quality of this series it amazes me that it has few people supporting it.
The ending left me a bit dry-mouthed, but it seems like it gave rise to new and interesting stories to tell.
