  • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

    Please find below another inspiring quote from Sifu:

    "Skills need to be learnt from a competent teacher who is willing to teach you, not from a book or a video. For example, you don't learn how to drive or swim from books or videos but from living instructors. Even when you know the techniques of driving or swimming, unless you have the skills, you still cannot drive or swim." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

      • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

        Please find below another beautiful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

        "All phenomena, therefore, are illusory; they are like a mirage, the moon in water, an image in a mirror, or a dream. They have no characteristics of their own, and are devoid of self-nature. Because of our delusion, we mistakenly think that phenomena, such as people and animals, rivers and mountains, stars and galaxies, are objectively or ultimately real; if we are enlightened, we shall find that actually there are no phenomena. In the phenomenal world, a thought, an emotion or a building may arise or cease to be; an intention or an action may be considered defiled or pure; new monks may be added to the monastic order or some money may be subtracted from your bank account. But in ultimate reality, there is nothing arising or ceasing; nothing defiled or pure, nothing is added or subtracted; ultimate reality is all tranquil and undifferentiated." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

              • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                Please find below another beautiful quote from Sifu:

                "“Satori” or “awakening” is inexplicable. This does not mean we cannot describe it in words, but it means that no matter how accurately a master may describe it, those who do not have an experience of “satori” would not really understand the meaning although they may know the dictionary meaning of all the words in the description. A classic analogy is a mango. Suppose you had never eaten a mango. No matter how accurately one may describe its taste, you would still not know what it tastes like." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                  Please find below another wonderful quote from Sifu:

                  "If our loved ones like parents, brothers or grandparents, act with evil, we show them a good example by following the Ten Shaolin Laws in our daily life, but we will not interfere into their lives though we may, subtly, give them advice. We can tell them that goodness will always bring goodness, and if they are not good at times, it may be because of their thinking or circumstances.

                  We abide by the Ten Shaolin Laws in our daily life. The Ten Shaolin Laws, which transcend all cultures and religions, provide an excellent basis for morality.

                  I am very glad that your family is getting better now. However, if any member of your family is not as good as you feel he (or she) should be, please remember that not everyone has the good karma to learn from Shaolin Wahnam. Let him live his life, but be a good example to him. If you can, gently suggest to him that he can be better. He will certainly be happier.

                  If someone advised you to leave your family because your family was hurting you, be grateful that they did so because of their ignorance and many problems. It is good that now you contact your family and have relationship with your family members. As a member of Shaolin Wahnam, we always speak and act from a position of strength and virtue, and will not take part in their wrong actions but live peacefully with them. You are doing very well." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                    • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                      Please find below another wonderful quote from Sifu:

                      "In traditional Chinese medical philosophy, the philosophy that has maintained the health of the biggest population of the world for the longest period of known history, all illness is caused by energy blockage.

                      Although those who are used to Western medical philosophy may find it odd, just as those not used to science may find it odd to say that all things in the world from a tadpole to a mountain are composed of atoms, this concept that all illness is due to energy blockage is actually found in Western terminology though not openly mentioned.

                      When a person suffers a viral infection, for example, it is expressed in traditional Chinese medical philosophy as an energy blockage. If his energy is flowing harmoniously, expressed as his blood system is functioning well, the viruses that attack him will be cleared without his conscious knowing.

                      When a person suffers from kidney stones, it is expressed in traditional Chinese medical philosophy as an energy blockage. His kidneys or whatever glands in his body are not producing the right enzymes to dissolve the kidney stones, which his kidneys or glands will naturally do if his energy flow is harmonious.

                      When a person suffers from emotional disorders, like depression or anxiety, it is expressed in traditional Chinese medical philosophy as an energy blockage. If his energy flow is harmonious, it will flush out the negative emotions with the result that he will not have any emotional disorders.

                      These three diseases -- viral infection, kidney stones and emotional disorders -- represent three major classes of illness, which are contagious diseases, organic problems and psychological disorders. In traditional Chinese medical philosophy they are caused by energy blockage.

                      Chi flow overcomes energy blockage. When the energy blockage is cleared, enabling chi or energy to flow harmoniously, the person will recover from his illness. Good health is natural. In other words, if all his glands, organs and systems are working the way they are meant to work, he will be healthy. Practicing chi kung is an excellent way to generate chi flow." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                      • Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit on "Vertical Shift" vs " Horizontal Shift " ...

                        "Stress is a major problem facing our world today, especially in big cities like London. Staying healthy is another major problem, even among those who live in the countryside.

                        Yet, to be relaxed and healthy is actually simple, although it may be difficult for most people today. It is not a contradiction, it is a paradox. The crucial factor is that to be simple is not necessarily the same as to be easy.

                        Relaxation and health are natural. This means if all the parts of your body (and mind) — cells, glands, organs, systems, etc — work naturally, you will be relaxed and healthy. You become tensed or sick when one or more of your body parts work out of order. The fundamental task of chi kung is to restore the natural working of your body. In chi kung jargon, it is called restoring harmonious energy flow.

                        Moreover, we aim for a “vertical shift” rather than a “horizontal shift”. In other words, by improving your skills you can be relaxed and healthy in London or any places in the whole world. You don't have to change your working habits or place of residence. Your shift to relaxation and health is by moving upward in living skills, and not by moving horizontally away from your daily work and play.

                        In our Shaolin Wahnam philosophy, while we are aware that being relaxed and healthy is the immediate objective of many of our students in learning from us, we are more ambitious in our aims. All the arts we teach — Shaolin Kungfu, Wahnam Taijiquan and chi kung — are vehicles for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual development. Being relaxed and healthy is just our starting point. We are very clear about our vision and direction. Should we fail to achieve our aims and objectives, it is not because we did not know what we wanted and how to get it, but because of other factors, such as incompetent teaching or insufficient practice."

                          • A quote from Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit relating to mental block and paradigm shift...

                            "Once people have fixed their perspective, it is difficult to change it. You can see this stubbornness reoccurring time and again in the history of Western science and medicine. Practically all great scientific and medical discoveries and inventions were met with obstinate, and sometimes cruel, opposition.

                            Nevertheless, I still persist in my passionate vision. I sincerely believe that if the right people can see the advantage of a paradigm shift in medical thinking, great break-throughs will be made that will relieve a lot of unnecessary suffering. My recently published book, “The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine” is an attempt in this direction. In the last chapter of the book, I explain three areas where Western medicine can benefit from the Chinese, namely its philosophy, its vast empirical knowledge still unknown to the West, and its time-tested techniques that are simple and effective."

                            • Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit on various poetic descriptions of types of chi flow ....

                              "If you wish to speak to God, you would remain at Standing Meditation.
                              If you wish to develop tremendous internal force, you would be flowingly still.
                              If you wish to enjoy mental freshness and clarity, you may go into flowing breeze and swaying willows.
                              If you want qi to revitalize every cell of your body, you may go onto flowing stream and floating clouds.
                              If you wish to clear blockage to overcome pain and illness, you would go into self-manifested qi movement."

                                I would like to share today another beautiful and inspiring quote from Sifu's recent Questions and Answers:

                                "If a person is sick, it is because of blockage. We are all naturally healthy.

                                If a person blocks his natural blood flow, he may have an infection. If he blocks his organs, he may have an organic disorder. If he blocks his nervous system, he may have a psychiatric problem. If a person has a mental blockage, he may be unhappy at his work-place or in his family.

                                God always wants the best for everybody. If a person does not get benefits, it is because of blockage." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit
