      This is so nice, uplifting and heartwarming

      Thank you Leo for posting.

      And thank you Andreas for being you. Larger than life

      Love is wonderful, because anyone with love in his heart wants to see everyone in bliss, everyone healthy and everyone availing freedom. This is the state of a man who considers the world as his family. Such are the wise man, the great souls. (Shri Shantananda Saraswati)

        On Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit's behalf, I may post his message:

        Andreas Czaga was a lovable person. We all miss him. The consolation is that he attained the spiritual cultivation he had longed for, for many years. He was ready to leave our phenomenal world. He is now happy and peaceful in heaven.;

        Andreas was rich in friends and family, but not financially. It would be great if you could donate any amount you think fit for his family. It is the least we can do for such a lovable man. You can send your donation to Leo who has so kindly taken up this noble task. Details can be found in this thread.

          Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

          My deepest condolences to all his loved ones.

          I only knew Andreas Siheng from Chun Yian Siheng Wedding but I immediately felt how open-hearted, generous and happy he always was. In only few days he created a big impact on me and he became an inspiration.

          Dear Leo Sidai. Thank you for organizing the donation collection. As you have kindly mentioned, "no money in the world will bring our beloved brother back, but at least we can help Andreas’ loved ones in their process towards a new beginning".

          I will contact you via PM regarding the money transfer.

          With Love, Care and Shaolin Salute,

            Deepest condolences to Andreas' loved ones.

            I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting Andreas at the Dragon Strength course. The photo below was taken at our visit together to the Kuan Yin temple.

              Blessing on your journey to the next life brother Andreas. I pray for you and your immediate family and you will be greatly missed by your Shaolin family too. Although I never met you in person, from my brothers comments it seems you were an inspiration to the people around you and I am happy that you achieved so much in your time in this world.

                Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                Many Blessings to Andreas Siheng on his journey from this life and my deepest sympathy goes to his family and loved ones.
                I first met Andreas Siheng at the Small and Big Universe course in 2010 there was a few of us there who stayed in a small apartment for a few days. The memory of seeing him practising Taijiquan the first morning as the sun rose will always stay with me.

                Namo Amitabha Buddha,
                Namo Amitabha Buddha,

                  I can watch that bar fight forever.

                  Andreas immediately struck me as a very spiritual and kind man when I met him. His childlike playfulness and his eyes quickly made me think of the term old soul.
                  I am surprised at his passing, but certain that he and his family will be taken care of.

                  Thank you Leo for being so helpful for his family, and allowing us to partake through your arrangements.

                      Hi Everyone,

                      I had the good fortune of meeting Siheng Andreas at the Blue Mountain in Costa Rica in 2010, he was very kind, caring and humble. I am very grateful to have met him.

                      Andreas was very generous in sharing his knowledge, wisdom and experiences of the Shaolin Arts and life in general, he also had a great sense of humor. He was very happy and nothing seemed to bother him. I remember he injured his ankle at the Wing Choon course, but he didn't complain or smile any less. I remember Andreas, Sean and myself enjoyed a cigar under the stars and we talked for a long time. He kindly answered a number of my questions, I felt like I walked away a better person after that night.

                      I would like to put out good thoughts and blessings to Andreas and his remaining loved ones. I know he has passed on to a better place, with that in mind his passing is still difficult accept and a tremendous loss.

                      With shaolin salute,

                        Dear Shaolin Wahnam family,

                        I had the great fortune of meeting Andreas Siheng at the Dragon Strength Course and at Chun Yian Siheng's wedding.

                        He radiated happiness, joy and had great penetrating shen. He was also very humble and kind, full of gratitude, which serves as an inspiration for me.

                        I send his family many blessings and good thoughts.

                        May you go well on your next journey, dear brother. I am very blessed to have crossed paths with you during this lifetime.

                        Namo Amitabha Buddha,
                        Namo Amitabha Buddha,

                            Thank you Sihing Leo for starting this thread. That Shaolin Intensive was full of memories for me and I remember his intensity and skill quite clearly.
                            I can't believe I missed the bar room brawl
                            Here are a few memories:
                            • Him telling us about his stays in the jungle with a wing chun master
                            • Our near miss but miraculous connection at the KK airport to share a van up to Mt. Kinabalu
                            • Karaoke with him on one of our last nights at the intensive, and the song was "Without Me" by Eminem
                            • How excited he was to tell Sifu about a patient who had responded well to his treatments

                            Here is a blurry photo I took of him on our many van trips from the hotel. It is one of my favorites from that trip.

                            Condolences to his family,

                              Thanks everyone for the photos. Difficult to believe he has passed on.

                              Godspeed, brother.
