As history depicts, the Shaolin Temple is the birthplace of Zen Buddhism and Martial Arts of KungFu. So said great master SuXi to the current Abbot and to the world, " Shaolin is Zen in lieu of martial arts KungFu fists alone," before his transcendence 10 years ago.

His words, even more so, remind all people that Shaolin disciples' responsibility is to live, promote and teach the philosophy and way of Zen living. Striving to live with spirituality via Zen way of living is of all the more importance for Shaolin followers world wide.

The Shaolin Temple in the spring is the same; how will the tree flowers blossom, and with what fruit." That is the ultimate Dharma of Zen.
