21. China, Shaolin

Thursday, February 26, 2015


Postcard was sent by Kathy (Meena7) from USA. Postcard is part of magnificent Aquarupella cards collection called "Comme un Voyage". On this card we can see adepts and the Master of kung fu. Shaolin Monastery is a Buddhist temple located in China. The temple is situated in the forests of Shaoshi Mountain one of the seven mountains of Song mountains. Shaolin is one of the four holy Buddhist temples of China. In addition to being the birthplace of Chan (Zen) Buddhism, Shaolin is said to be the first temple that institutionalized kung fu. Because of its long association with Shaolin Kung Fu and development of many other Chinese martial arts, it is considered the cradle of kung fu. So that the Chinese saying goes: "All martial arts under heaven arose out of Shaolin." Shaolin Monastery and its Pagoda Forest were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010 as part of the "Historic Monuments of Dengfeng."
