During a productive and inspiring painting session with my painting teacher Juliane Eichberg in the Buddhist temple of Aryatara Institute in Munich. Link: aryatara.de/programm/thangka-m… , I drew the fifth version of the famous founder of Shaolin Kung-Fu and the first patriarch of Chan-Buddhism, Bodhidharma. In Chinese he is called also Tamo.
The current website of Shaolin is: www.shaolin.org.cn/EN/index.as… .
When I came home from my trip from India in 1995, my first encounter with the sacred tradition of Bodhidharma`s Kung Fu was at the martial arts school of my beloved Grandmaster Ajahn Lao Vongvilay in Munich. Link: www.tiger-kungfu.de : There I trained Kung-Fu in the style of the “crouching tiger” or in Thai: “ Süa Lag Hang”, which can be traced back to Bodhidharma. Also I began to practice the Wing Tsun wooden Dummy Form in the tradition of Grandmaster Yip Man.
Today I am learning since 2 years Muay Thai Boran, which is rooted as well in Thailand. www.kampfkunst-germering.de/
The painting is now hanging in the main training hall of my martial-arts school in Germering. Link:www.kampfkunst-germering.de/
