    An Angle to the Radical Problem of Chan Tradition Forword
    1. Classification of Chan
    2. Chan of Tathaagat and Chan of Patriarchs

    3. Bodhidharma's practice of recompense and its succession
    It is said that Chan tradition began from Bodhidharma who was born in Persia or south India and came to China around the early days of the sixth century. However, concerning his life, we find out not a few fictions in Chan texts made in the later times in succession. For example, there is a famous story that Bodhidharma met with the emperor Wu of the Liang dynasty and answered him "you have no marit ", when asked about his contributions to the prosperity of Buddhism. We also know a story that Bodhidharma had been sitting for nine years to deepen his meditation. These stories are very significant to recognize true characteristics of Chan Buddhism. But, we can not believe them as historical facts. They seem to have been skillfully drawn up by Chan Buddhists of the southern sect, who stood in the row of Chan of Patriarchs, in order to make Bodhidharma the perfect founder of Ch'an tradition. Then, what was Bodhidharma in fact ? What did he consider ? what did he teach? Has the Chan thought of Bodhidharma properly been accepted and succeeded to by Chan Buddhists who were proud of successors of Chan of Patriarchs ? Were there any essencials of it that were thrown away ? I would like to pursuit these questions from a historical viewpoint in this presentation, focussing on Bodhidharma's practice of recompense and its succession in Chinese Chan tradition. I would be very glad if it gives a clue to see through the modality of Chan movement in the new millenium to lots of Chan researchers and Chan Buddhist.

Buddhism was founded by Siddharta Gautama, a prince of the Sh a kya familiy that reigned over a small kingdom in modern Nepal. His epithet Sh a a kya", other epitets are arhata "Thoroughly saint" and tath a gata "Thus Come One" (chin.: Rulai ¦p¨Ó). He was born in the Lumbin i grove during the 6th century BC and was kept free from knowledge of daily suffering in the palace. During a ride he first became aware of human suffering in shape of an sick person, an old man and a funeral. Very upset by these visions of true life, Siddharta left his family and for seven years lived as an ascetic, only to find out that the extreme ascetic life was not able to solve from suffering. He further relied upon meditation ( dhy a na , chin.: chan ÁI) to arrive at the conclusions that made him a Buddha ("Enlightened Man", chin.:

ABOUT Shaolin Zen
Shaolin Zen began in 1993 as our newsletter for the Gongfu and Taijiquan school, Shaolin Chi Mantis, and later for Tai Chi Youth as well. With the creation of Tai Chi Youth, Inc., a nonprofit education organization funded by the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) and other government agencies, Shaolin Zen became the focus of the Buddhist studies that had previously been taught in Shaolin Chi Mantis classes, but were not included in as many of the Tai Chi Youth Tai Chi classes. Now, Shaolin Chi Mantis is opening its doors again to more persons and the need for a 'religion' may not be as significant. Should the Shaolin Chi Mantis and Tai Chi Youth students and Disciples desire to have more of a religious organization, Shaolin Zen may fill this need. Our BROCHURE of Shaolin Zen provides a valuable explanation of our services, history, and future. The Shaolin Zen MAGAZINE is an entertaining and enlightening quarterly publication. Our Sitemap is another useful tool for finding webpages.

No. 13.2 (May 2000)
pp. 585-611
For the purpose of understanding the nature and meaning of enlightenment in the Chan/Zen philosophy, it is first necessary to distinguish four levels of human knowledge and see how Chan enlightenment (Chanwu ÁI®© ) occupies the deepest level of knowledge. Then it is also necessary to see how the Chan Buddhist would argue for the import and necessity of the Chanist enlightenment within the Buddhist tradition and hence how the Chan enlightenment would stand out as a necessary form of human experience which is unique, yet could be universal. Finally, we could see how one may even bring out a hidden dimension of the Chan enlightenment to bear on the problem of life in order to make the Chan enlightenment more significant for a modern human being in his or her struggle with modernity. In connection with this uncovering of the dimensions of the Chan enlightenment, we will come to see how the Chan philosophy of enlightenment could evolve into a post-modern form of spirituality as self-consciously rooted in the rich tradition of Chinese philosophy.

“Stand Like a Pine with a Helium Helmet”. The Influences of Qi andchan buddhism in both Chinese Classical Dance. and Modern Dance.
“Stand Like a Pine with a Helium Helmet” The Influences of Qi and Chan Buddhism in both Chinese Classical Dance and Modern Dance Chinese dance has always played a central role in my life. It was handed down to me by my mother, Lorita Leung, who was a professional Chinese dancer in China, and became an integral part of my cultural identity as a Chinese-Canadian. Between 1991 and 1996, I had the opportunity to study Chinese Folk and Minority dance at the Beijing Dance Academy and the Central Institute for the Minorities. This past summer, I completed a one-year program in Chinese Classical dance at the Guangdong Dance School. These experiences, when added to my studies in Modern dance at SFU, have led me to draw interesting connections between Modern dance in North America, and Chinese Classical dance. Modern dance, which sprung its roots in America at the turn of the twentieth-century, is still in its infancy when compared with Chinese Classical dance—which can be traced back to the Han Dynasty that spanned from 206 BC to 24 AD—yet, I find it intriguing that these two culturally distant forms of dance share something in common. Upon returning to Canada from Guangzhou, I felt compelled to explore these similarities, and found that many of the principles that have led to the development of Chinese Classical dance have also influenced Modern dance.

Shaolin Boom in Vienna
September 8, 2002 - A new Shaolin Temple in Vienna is enjoying huge popularity amongst both athletes and those just trying to stay in shape. The site for the temple was chosen by the famous Shaolin monk, Shi Yang Ming (39), who started studying Chan Buddhism and martial arts at the Shaolin Temple in Henan, China at the age of five. Over the last ten years in he has made a name for himself in the USA founding a Shaolin Temple in New York, a hit with stars from the entertainment world. The Shaolin Temple in Vienna is the first of its kind in Austria. The training offered includes Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Chi Kung, meditation and Chan Buddhism. There are also courses for children on Sunday afternoons. Kung Fu increases the flexibility of the body through kicks, jumps and stretching whilst Chi Kung, not so common in the western world, strengthens the body with stances similar to those practised in yoga. Tai Chi was originally conceived as a martial art but can help personal fitness combined with meditation. Chan Buddhism was founded 1,500 years ago. The Japanese version of Zen Buddhism, better known in the west, developed out of Chinese Chan Buddhism. The Vienna Shaolin Temple is run by 33-year-old Wolfgang Gall from Vienna, who studied in New York under Shi Yang Ming. Courses will be held by Shaolin monks from New York who will come to Vienna on a regular basis.

Words from the Suttas/Sutras
"Who in the world
is a man constrained by conscience, who awakens to censure like a fine stallion to the whip? Those restrained by conscience are rare those who go through life always mindful. Having reached the end they go through what is uneven evenly; go through what is out-of-tune in tune." Samyutta Nikaya I.18, Hiri Sutta, "Conscience" Quotes of the Week "This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion."The 14th Dalai Lama Book Review: Master Sheng-yen's Subtle Wisdom: Understanding Suffering, Cultivating Compassion Through Ch’an
