All Kung Fu under the sun originates from Shaolin Temple.
Shaolin Temple is also noted as the Ancestral Court of Chan Buddhism.
It is the birthplace of Chan Buddhism.
What is Chan? How do we cultivate Chan? There is a saying in Lankavatara Sutra: “Buddha’s words center around mind. No door is Dharma door.”
Chan is Buddha’s mind seal. Chan is the free state of mind.
Chan is the absolute equality of mind. Chan is in every part of our life.
Chan is a healthy and wise way of living.
