When Father Teng starts to guide people back to the religious path, their income is dwindling away. Perm considers Father Teng his number one enemy and plans to get rid of him.

Many ware injured so they came to conclusion that the Sacred Black Tiger, protector of this mountain was angry with them. Both sides decided to bring the offerings to the shrine in order to calm Black Tiger�s wrath. As they were about their offering business suddenly a stranger appeared from the shrine. Both sides concluded that the Sacred Black Tiger must have sent his assistant. Now they started competing to win him over to their side to gain the power over the other gang.

The Celestine Prophecy is a spiritual adventure film chronicling the
discovery of ancient scrolls in the rainforests of Peru. The prophecy and
its nine key insights predict a worldwide awakening, arising within all
religious traditions, that moves humanity toward a deeper experience of
spirituality. The film features an international ensemble cast including
Matthew Settle, Thomas Kretschmann, Sarah Wayne Callies, Annabeth Gish,
Hector Elizondo, Joaquim de Almeida, Jurgen Prochnow and Obba Babatundé.
Using an approach that is part adventure tale, part parable, and imbued with
intriguing and exhilarating music, the film tells the story of John Woodson
(Mathew Settle), whose life is at a crossroads. He is about to experience a
dramatic and profound metamorphosis. Through a mysterious set of
coincidences, he finds himself on an adventure to Peru in search of ancient
scrolls, known as the Celestine Prophecy. Resistant at first, skeptical and
unsure, John finds that with every step he takes, each person he encounters
leads him to a new understanding. It is only in this letting go to a higher
consciousness that he uncovers life's true purpose and his own destiny.
