The autobiograpy of Dr. Shen Hongxun

Born on August 8th 1939 in Shanghai, China


The Chinese say that in order to become a master you need 4 things: good teachers; good friends, and to be in the right place at the right time.

Looking at my life, you will see that I had the chance to practice a lot of different things. In the beginning I could not understand these things, nor could I know where they would finally lead me. Perhaps this story can inspire you in your practice and give you self-confidence.
