I hope that this e-mail finds you well. We have a very exciting event coming up and I wanted to extend an invitation to you.
On March 21st, we will welcome to California the highest figure in Chinese Zen Buddhism, the Abbot of Shaolin, along with a delegation of monks from the Shaolin Temple in Songshan, China. The historic visit will be only the third time in which Abbot Shi Yong Xin has come to California. Previous Abbots had never visited the United States.
The Shaolin Temple, renowned for its 1500-year-old martial arts and Buddhist scholars, is the birth place of Zen Buddhism. The monks of Shaolin have won fame and prestige for creating Shaolin Kung Fu, the most well known Chinese martial arts. These teachings are taught throughout the world, with several schools and teaching centers located in California.
In celebration of the Abbot's visit, I am hosting an event open to the public. Highlights of the day include:
10:30am Spring Prayer for America, presided by the Venerable Abbot Shi Yongxin of China Songshan Shaolin Temple
12:30, and 3pm Shaolin King Fu Demonstration
Free lessons: Shaolin Kung Fu, Qigong, Wellness Exercises
Photo Exhibit: History of Shaolin Temple and Shaolin Kung Fu
Shaolin Cultural Booths: Shaolin Medicine, Chan Tea & Cuisine, Books & Arts, Shaolin Monk Attire, Shaolin Weaponry
This is a free event, and I am sure you will be thoroughly entertained. I look forward to seeing you there.
Senator Leland Y. Yee
