Climbing Mount Song in Henan Province, China



Climbing Mount Song (link to video), home to the legendary Shaolin Temple, in Henan Province, China, to reach the summit where the Dharma Statue stands. Dharma also known as Bodhidharma was a Buddhist monk who lived during the 5th or 6th century. He is traditionally credited as the transmitter of Chan Buddhism to China. According to Chinese legend, he began the physical training of the monks of Shaolin Monastery that led to the creation of Shaolin kungfu.
