A Record of a Mortal is Journey to Immortality Wiki

Mysterious Small Bottle , or officially known as the Heaven Controlling Vial , is a vial containing spirit water, and its value is on par or greater than that of Heavenly Profound Treasures.


The bottle was only the size of a fist, and a single hand could wrap around its neck.[1] Cleaning its surface of mud, the bottle appeared to be made of a material that was neither glass, metal or porcelain[1]. The bottle emanated a shiny green glow, and there were intricate black green leaf patterns engraved on its surface. At the head of the bottle, there was a bottle cap that tightly sealed the mouth of the bottle.[2]


Han Li stumbled upon the bottle after 6 months of tutelage under Doctor Mo in the Seven Mysteries Sect. Whilst going to visit Zhang Tie, Han Li would carelessly kick piles of leaves off the valley path. In the midst of thought, Han Li would feel immense pain in his right foot from unknowingly kicking the bottle[2]. Piquing his curiosity, his bruteforce attempts of opening the bottle would be in vain[1]. After realizing its unusual properties, Han Li kept knowledge of his newfound treasure to himself while studying its abilities.[3] His initial discovery was when the bottle collected specks of white light in his room, and gathered even more when taken outside. With enough of these specks being collected, the cap could easily be opened to reveal a single drop of a jade green liquid.[4]

In a fight with a True Immortal Ma Liang, it was revealed the bottle is called Heaven Controlling Vial. It comes with a bottle and spirit water but was spilt when descended to lower realm. Han Li obtained the Vial at the very start of the novel and the spirit water was found in the Devil Realms. The vial itself can be on par or greater in value compared to Heavenly Profound Treasures. It is noted that the Dao Patriarch of the immortal world is constantly finding it.


  • Normal beasts are unable to survive digestion of the bottle's jade green liquid, immediately having their bodies rapidly expand before exploding.[5] Grade 8 and 9 demon beasts can survive it, but their abdomens show protrusions.[6]
  • The jade green liquid can be used to speed up the maturation of any plants no matter the circumstance. Additionally, the consumption of the plants wouldn't give the fatal effects of directly drinking the jade green liquid.[7]
  • When vital energy is inserted, it begins to produce a grain that contains the Law of Time. The energy has to be from a True Immortal and beyond.
  • By drinking the normal green liquid you can understand the Law of Time little by little. Han Li could only drink it because his body was so much stronger than any other True Immortal or else his body would be destroyed.


If you would not like to be spoiled do not proceed past this point

The palm heaven vase actually contains all 3000 dao and is said to be created from the very beginning in the chaos and can carry the power of any law [RMJI:Immortal World Chapter 1334]. There is also a bottle spirit trapped inside the bottle that Han Li can communicate with.

Han Li is able to use this vial to create time law crystals that help him better comprehend the laws of time. The bottle also has the ability to travel back to the past, but it is quite imprecise at lower cultivation levels.

Han Li is able to precisely travel back in time to converse with Mi Luo, patriarch of the True Speech Sect for cultivation techniques on the law of time.

By the end of the novel, Han Li uses the Heavenly Palm Heaven Vase one last time to save Yuan Yao from her heavenly tribulation to become a True Immortal and also to kick the Heavenly Palm Heaven Vase in front of himself when he was a mortal so that he would find it. He also uses this vial one last time to regress his cultivation from the Time Dao Ancestor back to the Peak of Zenith Heaven to counter the inevitable merging with the heavenly dao. By injecting his Dao ancestral origin law into the vase, the vase exceeds its limits and breaks whilst also allowing him to recede from a Dao Ancestor cultivation.

The bottle spirit was originally created when the original Han Li reversed time for millions of years and gave up all his Time Dao cultivation thus ending up in time before his own birth. During this time shuttle, the original Han Li, lost the bottle and was eventually found by "himself", the second Han Li.

The bottle itself was created in the initial chaos, out of which everything is created.
