Master Shi Heng Yi - 5 hindrances to self-mastery | Shi Heng YI | TEDxVitosha

6 837 094 दृश्य

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.

    • I know this feeling very well. But imagine your present self talking to your 10 years younger version. Would you tell him he is not worth it? Or that he is just no good? Of course not! You would probably say that he is to hard on himself and he should love himself for who he is unconditionally. Try to apply this in the present because you are worth it. You are worth working on and improving. Even more you are the most important person you have.

  • Hypnotically Impressive yet Godless. A highly trained mind yet dead spirit - the way we are born can not be overcome by self discipline. Self mastery is important, but without the grace of God it ultimately leads to vain arrogance, as his last words prove ("I'll see you at the peak")

    • @Zachary James If two ways are fundamentally contradicting one another, both cannot be true at the same time. You have to choose. If you already decided on Buddhism, this comment is not indented for you. But maybe I'm wrong, you see, 30 years ago I was very close to become a Buddhist monk... Best wishes!

  • I don't know enough about Master Shi Heng Yi to draw conclusions so I can only comment on first impressions. Master Shi Heng Yi is evidently skilled at visual/audio enhancement and is obviously riding on the Bruce Lee bandwagon - hence his popularity. Firstly let’s not kid ourselves by assuming Shaolin Kung Fu is the most spiritual martial art. The main focus of shaolin is fighting perspicacity by developing the body and mind. The spiritual stuff was always a “supplementary “practice. I wouldn’t consult a Shaolin monk for spiritual insight in the first instance; better to consult Buddhist monks from Tibet, Bhutan, Thailand etc. - they’re the real McCoy’s. Or pay attention to genuine philosophers/spiritual teachers like Eckhart Tolle and true yogis like Sadhguru.

Like every word, every muted inhale, even the slope of his body at rest...positioning himself to echo the same peak, the same strength as the mountain in his story -- every nerve in every muscle moves under his eased control. Everything is deliberate.

    • There is a sixth hindrance, most agree: Greed. This is desire; as in the desire for things to be other than they are actually and right now. In prison I learned "it's all right here." Or as another remarked, the greatest obstacle to happiness is our idea that there's a way things should be.
