Meet Shaolin Master Shi Heng Yi in his serene talk about self-discovery. Learn why rainfall is an essential part of each flowering. And every small step - part of the journey to the highest peek. The hindrances along the way to self-discovery and personal growth are easy to overcome. Learn how from his talk. For more than 30 years, Master Shi Heng Yi has been studying and practicing the interaction between mind and body. His strength is the ability to smoothly combine this knowledge with physical exercises and to practice Martial art -Kung Fu and Qi Gong. He has an academic background but he prefers to live at the Shaolin Temple Europe, Monastery located in Otterberg, Germany. Since 2010 he has been taking care of the settlement and he personifies the sustainable development and spreading the Shaolin culture and philosophy. As a contemporary monk, Master Yi holds a smartphone in the folds of his clothes as he sees no contradiction between living together with ancient knowledge and high technology. “The universal law of being successful and happy at the same time means finding the balance”, says master Yi. And as for flying - yes, he really can do it! He only needs a stick and a little space. We expect him to fly-in and share about the Shaolin way at TEDxVitosha 2020.

Artist: Secret Garden
Album: Earthsongs
Track: Lotus

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Sensual mind Negative mind Slothful mind Unsettled mind Skeptical doubt "Align and structure your life in a way to prevent these hindrances" 1. Recognize 2. Accept 3. Investigate 4. Non-Identity There are 2 mistakes along the way to mastery 1. Not starting 2. Not going all the way

Almost 14 years ago I participated in a program in the Shaolin temple where he used to live. This guy taught me proper meditation and breathing skills and shared his story with me. Absolutely fantastic person with an unbelievable amount of discipline and a mind which is the strongest I've ever encountered. One time the other 3 guys who were in the temple and I couldn't keep up with him and the monks and we fell behind during the morning routine. As punishment we had to do 500 push ups which sounded completely unreal but he said we won't get to eat unless we finished it. He said all this in a very calm voice and we just did it. He taught me how to achieve anything if you're disciplined and calm enough. 非常谢谢师父!

5 Hindrances 1. Sensual desire (pleasures & distractions) 2. ill will (negative mind) 3. Slothful body & mind (lack of energy, lack of motivation) 4. Restlessness (worry about the future or regret about the past, unable to stay in the present) 5. Skeptical doubt (indecisiveness) Each of these hindrances is placing a dark cloud on your mind. Solution: Align and structure your life to prevent these hindrances from arising. 4 Steps to remove these Hindrances 1. Recognize (what state of mind you’re in) 2. Accept (accept and allow situations and people to be the way it is/they are) 3. Investigate (your emotional & mental state) - “why did it come up?” “what is the consequence if I remain in that state?” 4. Non identification (practice “I’m not the body, I’m not mind, I’m not my emotion, I can just see all these 3 aspects about me”)

I love the story he shared, and reminded me how I used to be: Without a clear goal but with a foggy thought of wanting to improve myself, I lost in the techniques. And I have to say, sometimes this all kind of techniques that teaching you somethings, sometimes makes one has a illusion of having achieved it, or got lost in them like me. I'll watch again this talk. It's great!

Took some notes for myself and now sharing them for anyone who might find them valuable :) 5 Hindrances to Self-Mastery 1. Sensual desire (sight/touch/taste/smell/hearing) = Am I addicted? 2. Ill will / aversion = Am I feeling a negative emotion? 3. Dullness / heaviness = Am I unmotivated? 4. Restlessness = Is my mind jumping from though to thought? 5. Sceptical doubt = Am I indecisive? Rain (is the solution) Recognise which one you're experiencing Accept that's what you're experiencing Investigate why you're experiencing it Non-identify with that experience: 'i am not the body, i am not the mind, i am not my emotion' I wish the talk would go on for longer and if he could share stories of people overcoming each of them :)

@rustic35 I don't think I missed your point at all -- I think you missed mine. The reference I made about the peak was to simply point out that the writer meant peak instead of peek. But I then went on to say that it still fit the context. So my point was really about semantics.
rustic35 Anos atrás
@Elizabeth D. I think you missed my point, some people only think of the peak (the end goal) and miss the journey along the way because they're only focused on the end goal. Focus on what's happening now and the peak will arrive when it's time. If you spend your whole time wanting the peak, the end, then, you'll suffer and miss the opportunity along the way.
Elizabeth D.
Elizabeth D. Anos atrás
@rustic35 Let me tell you what I've learned thus far (growing up in a cult and fleeing from it a few years ago). Life is a SERIES of journeys. When you reach the mountain peak, you will KNOW it -- but sometimes it will feel like a pyrrhic victory, because you will be filled with battle scars (figuratively). And yes -- you will thank your lucky stars that you've reach the pinnacle of THAT journey -- because you know that a new one is about to begin. So you prepare yourself for your new journey and all of its ups and downs. And you try your best to enjoy it all the way to the top once again. And each time you reach the mountain peak, you relish the scenery (like Simba did in the Lion King). So you see, there's nothing wrong with relishing the mountaintop once you get there -- there's a feeling of, "I made it," before you begin your next journey. 😉

I have spent time training at the Shaolin temple in China and have even had the great pleasure of meeting the Abott. Everything I do with my career my passions, my hobbies express the things I have learned from Shaolin. I am so grateful to have experienced and learned from this way of life!

It felt like someone came and analyzed my life in the most accurate yet nonjudgmental way. He is very good at speaking about what he has mastered. I have heard some of these things before but what matters is the way it is said and this definitely touched my heart. I too am at the foot of the mountain, asking people about what you see at the peak. I too am restless, my mind is a mess, I'm losing motivation, asking myself if I'll be able to do it, asking myself if I should stop even before starting and I too, feel like I'm locked in a cell; even before starting I feel like giving up. But there's something that wouldn't let me. This video showed me what I was looking for, to climb without thinking where I'll end up the next day, all the way up to the peak, to see for myself how it looks like from there. Also, very impressed by the way he described depression as imprisonment, very accurate.

I learned that I am a master of my own self from watching this. Always have been, learned it all years ago through my own trials. Life has an odd way of allowing you to learn all of this on your own, you just can't let emotion control you; understand that you control it. You have to know that you are not your mind, your mind is a part of you. Your body does not decide how to act based on the two, you control them all simultaneously, forever. You always have... One day I hope, we all may learn this at a younger age...and be thankful for being in such control.
Great 👍 I have been understanding myself at 26 ages and when I understand myself completely I will share to all mankind through this program.

Many monks and meditation masters give out an aura and I think it is because of their true inner calmness that 'transmits' the sense of tranquility and lightness to the audience to let go of the burdens.

Greatest respect to him and The Way To live ones life which I am very interested in and want to learn. He is very good teacher. I found the music distracting from his very important message. When The Music stopped at 6:57 I could concentrate on his words 100% 💕

Master Shi gave a demonstration class one weekend at my dojo in L.A. A few of us took him out to dinner his first night in town. A distressed woman was crying in the gutter screaming she'd been robbed. Just then a car sped away down an alleyway. Master Shi gave chase jumping onto the roof with a seemingly impossible leap. He brought the car to a halt soon after, recovering the woman's handbag and emerging from the dark with a crook under each arm and a goofy smile. The robbers apologized profusely and we all went home. Legend. ty 4 this great talk.

@akatgn It is not so uncommon to be misunderstood, or overly confident. Which beckons me to ask the questions: Which has a longer life expectancy...Knowledge ~ or Love? To point out fault whether in self or others, is it not grounds on which many can stumble? To recognize, accept and love, whether at a distance or intimate; is it not to accept and hold highly? He knows his place is not to point out flaws, just to merely be gentle in his presentation, so he does not himself falter, and to stir the truth into the mix of others. "The apple of my Eye" to love unconditionally is NOT a common yet rare, SO rare of a trait, it is like finding a specific needle in a needle factory full of needles without a thimble~ He is not just trying to help others, but he is trying to GIVE understanding, so that a Collaboration that is Greatly needed may have a better chance to flourish. A simple collaboration from those who "Are" with those "Whom Will". THEN again, There are so many ways to see since man tries his hardest to perceive, yet will not as long as he is bound to his perceptions~ Therefore, indeed. What do I know? ~ Godspeed

@Aaron Gabrial yes im certain. His speech is about personal growth, decisiveness, and clarity. That’s why he said he can’t do it for you or show you the way/path @ 8:40. You have to do it yourself and self catering/tailored. It’s crystal clear. All the 5 hindrances deals with spirituality , mindset, feelings, and nothing physical. They might be a byproduct of the physical state but the obstacle is abstract or mental in origin. Desire, for instance, is a derivative of a positive product from the physical realm of obsession (the joy of seeing, smelling, tasting) or temptation as exampled in the video. The story of the travelers is an example of not to let outside/other factors HINDER your path to clarity. It serves as a transition into his 5 HINDRANCES. For example, the third hindrance is an imprisonment of the mind. Restlessness, again is an “unsettled state “of MIND. Notices it deals with the mind a lot? Anything other than the physical realm, thus I don’t believe the master intends for his audience to take his speech in a literal meaning but think critically and spiritually and applies where it is meaningful for personal growth. The mountain is definitely the symbolism of an end-goal of your journey in life and its different for everyone. It is specific and personal so you can’t rely on others to tell you, or dictate what it supposed to be. You have to do it yourself. The speech promotes independency, although we live by interdependent connection, if we want to achieve that goal, we have to learn and overcome those 5 hindrances to make it happen, that’s the irony behind clarity, to be able to decipher and be crystal clear in what we want to achieve despite outside stimuli but we first have to do it internally from out state of mind. You can’t love someone if you first can’t love yourself, and neither can you love yourself if you did not recognize and accept who you are. His speech has endless clues to what I interpret it to mean but if you question my certainty, I can’t give you that satisfaction because it is tailored different for everyone. I can’t speak for its meaning but I believe that’s what he meant. Humbleness and personal interpretation are of different qualities but I hope my interpretation is NOT of a pretentious origin. There’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance and I hope that mine didn’t come out as the latter.

This is a statement which is meant to show selflessness of heart. He is stating though you may not see me, if our spirits are to meet, and you are truly at the top of this mountain, you as well as I, will embrace each other with warmth and welcome in seeing we are now brothers of light.

@Сергей Высокин Humbleness, is the restraint or imprisonment of ones ego; The purpose of the life journey is not to DESTROY but to LEARN. Without the ego, we cannot have free will~ Thus, we must learn to put the ego Behind us, so that way we may see with clarity.

Discipline more powerful than Kung Fu. Marriage, raising a family, getting up each work day come rain, snow and doing a days work. Being a parent. When your child's temperature is only 3 degrees above normal. Living this life requires strong nerves and great will power. Not everyone is able to walk this most sacred warriors path. I pray for all who choose this journey.

They make up what is you but they are not you, you must be able to detach or take a step back so you do not get over indulged and drown by it. Just like how some people perform insane actions due to adrenaline, it is because their mind is fogged. For the more violent events at least. Buddha always taught about the idea of treating your body as a shell for your being than actually you.
