This chapter opens with a description of the snake-tongued cleaner, which serves the "honoured tongue desire," the power of which is to devour other creatures. The cleaner looks quite formidable, but it is unable to move when it is being consumed by others. When the cleaner is gone, the "toxin in your body" will begin to take effect, and the "elution of my toxin" will drain you of all your energy. This means that the cleaner was killed only by me, and that all of the concepts of the cleaner belong to me, since I am the only one who can destroy it. He explains that the creatures in his realm are worshipping the leader of the physical world, which is why they are worshipping him. He also explains that he needs to find the eldest disciple of the toxin, who is also a member of the "six sensory pleasures," the group of creatures that worship the leader in the physical realm. He says that the toxin in his body is fatal to "the celestial venerable of building," but it does not work with him. It is too weak, he says, for the "child-sending" queen, who will eventually generate a toxin related endowment.
