One Month for One Year

One Month for One Year


You say that we can achieve in one month what it took you a year. Why is that?

This is true though it may be difficult for some people to believe.

There are a few reasons why our students in Shaolin Wahnam can be so cost-effective that they can achieve in one month when I needed a year.

One important reason is that our students understand the underlying philosophy. They understand, for example, the difference between skills and techniques. They know that they need skills to practice chi kung. If they only practice the techniques without the skills, they will not get chi kung benefits.

When I was a student, I did not differentiate between skills and techniques. I thought wrongly that if I knew the techniques I would eventually get the benefits.

Then why did I still get chi kung benefits, like having good health, vitality and longevity. It was because of my dedication to the art, or "ku lian" in Chinese which means "bitter perseverance". Because of my dedication, I developed the necessarily skills unknowingly. That is why I took a year whereas our students can attain in a month.

Secondly, having understood the underlying philosophy now, I can teach our students the necessary skills. For example, I can teach our students to be relaxed and be free of irrelevant thoughts. These two skills are in fact the causes of why many other practitioners do not get chi kung benefits even when their techniques are correct.

Thirdly, not only I can teach the skills, I transmit the skills to them. Our students need not practice the skills for some time to be skillful. They attain the skills immediately when I transmit the skills to them. Hence, they are able to apply the skills straightaway instead of spending some time to practice them. Our students, therefore, can attain in one month what I needed a year.
