The Spiritual Legacy of Shaolin Temple

The Spiritual Legacy of Shaolin Temple: Buddhism, Daoism & the Energetic Arts by Andy James, from Wisdom Publications, ISBN 0861713524. Combining the genius of Chan (Zen) Buddhism and Daoism with rigorous physical and martial discipline and breathing exercises, the training that originated at China's famous Shaolin Temple changed the way the world perceived mind and body down to the present day. This book exposes the Temple's hitherto unrecognized spiritual legacy, particularly in China, where its unique spiritual, martial and energetic traditions continued to evolve and interact in dynamic relation to culture, society and the individual.
