Tzu Chi Center’s C.A.F.E holds monthly conversations centered on the themes of compassion, action, freedom, and enlightenment.
Our teacher Chan Master Žarko Andričević joined the show to talk about the martial arts that have widely originated as a form of mindfulness training across Asia. For example, the well-known Shaolin Temple in China is a teaching ground for Chinese Zen meditation and Kung Fu. At its surface, martial art is a practice to resolve conflict between two people. However, as one practices further, it is a form of training one can use to resolve one’s own inner conflict. True compassion can be generated when one has less opposition with one’s own inner world.
In this C.A.F.E. 229 conversation, Chan Master Žarko Andričević walks us through the pearls of wisdom that may be found through martial arts training.
