Seven Years in Shaolin

Post by kirtu » Tue Jul 24, 2012 6:33 pm

Again from the Dutch Buddhist Broadcasting Foundation "Seven Years in Shaolin" a video about the life of a German Buddhist and martial arts student studying at the famed Shaolin Monastery. This is a totally different view of Shaolin than is sometimes seen during their wushu tours.

However except for a street session teaching kids "How are you?" the video has no English, is about 60% German 40% Chinese, subtitled in Dutch. If you understand German his German is very clear, not dialect. There may be an English version of this video somewhere as well because I know I've seen this on US TV.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

We have a teacher locally who is also a serious student there:" onclick=";return false;
