INTRO SONG:  “Road To The Mountaintop” is from the TAI CHI MAGIC 1 album by Buddha Zhen, who plays all the instruments and wrote the song.

OUTRO SONG:  “Tai Chi Magic” is from the TAI CHI MAGIC 1 album by Buddha Zhen and was used for dozens of public performances, tournaments, and state fairs with the stage packed with students performing the Yang Tai Chi Chuan Short Form of Shaolin Chi Mantis for thousands of attendees in Utah and California.

Buddha Zhen continues reading his 1993 book: Shaolin Kung Fu Initiate by Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang “Spirit Wolf of Truth.” This book was written to dissuade people from joining Shaolin Chi Mantis.

Buddha Zhen says he prefers Northern Kung Fu to Southern style, “…but they’re all good… it only takes a couple good punches to win a fight… winning a fight a fight is not a big deal…”

Buddha Zhen explains, “Kung Fu is about living a long and healthy life.” He also explains how he is recombining the Zen Buddhism with the Shaolin Kung Fu to unlock its real life benefits and helping the practitioner to live a longer and healthier life. “Doing the dance without the art,” is how he describes Shaolin Kung Fu without the Zen Buddhism.

“Zen Buddhism is like a hippie version of Buddhism,” he continues while explaining that there are no Gods, rituals, prayers… in the Original Zen Buddhism. “The Buddhism is wonderful, beautiful stuff… but the Shaolin Temple is not the Shaolin Temple anymore,” he laughs.

Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang “Spirit Wolf of Truth” is certified as a Chinese Jing Mo master by Grandmaster Wong Jack Man in San Francisco who fought Bruce Lee in 1964. He also graduated the Tai Mantis Federation school in 1984 while living with his Shifu Scott Stamps and studying with Dr. Kam Yuen.
