Life is Zen”

— Shi De Yang

FRANKFURT, HESSEN, GERMANY, January 10, 2024 / — Angkor publishing house (Angkor Verlag) presents authentic exercises and teachings from the Shaolin tradition. They originate from masters and students of the Shaolin Temple in China. The focus is on traditional exercises for physical toughening and concentration of the inner energy Chi, handed down from a former abbot. Readers learn wisdom from the respected modern master Shi De Yang and get acquainted with Shaolin rules, Wuseng and Wugong, the five principles of Qinna and the history of the monastery and its abbots.

Editor Shi Heng Yi is a monk ordained by the Chinese Shaolin Temple. This book deliberately distinguishes itself from a self-proclaimed “member of the 35th generation of Shaolin masters”, a German-Vietnamese who is neither authorized by the temple in China, nor does he hold a master’s degree from there (rather, he has the first student’s degree “duanpin”), nor is he a monk. This “Shi Heng Yi” (Tien Sy Vuong) runs a “Shaolin Temple Europe” in Otterberg near Kaiserslautern andmassively advertises on social media. Please avoid any confusion here.
