Then they went to the Abbot Hall, receiving a warm welcome from Abbot Yongxin.

Abbot Yongxin had a warm talk with Master Dayin at the Abbot Hall. Master Dayin said Korea Cao Dong Zong was introduced to Korea from China, being able to make Chan sect carry forward Bodhidharma’s classical content of Chan, which makes Cao Dong Zong be inherited and promoted. Venerable Yongxin mentioned that Shaolin Temple, the ancestral monastery of Chan sect, perpetuates the authentic linage of Chan sect, never stopping over 1500 years. Shaolin Chan sect is an influential denomination, gradually being spread around the world. There is a deep relationship between Shaolin Temple and Korea Cao Dong Zong while maintaining close interactions. Korean Cao Dong Zong also has a great influence in Korea, contributing to the propagation of Chan in the world. As the ancestral monastery of Chan sect, Shaolin Temple hopes to have more exchanges about Chan in the world, promoting friendship.

Venerable Yongxin told the Buddhism television of Korea that Chan of Mahayana taught by Bodhidharma has already continued over 1500 years, never stopping. Shaolin Temple takes Chan as the root and Wu (martial arts) as the subsidiary, carrying forward the unity of Chan and Wu. Shaolin Temple has been spreading Chan Wu culture, receiving a warm welcome from enthusiasts of many countries and also making more people know and understand Chan Wu culture. Chan is a type of function rather than an empty talk, needing experiencing it personally and then getting the true meaning. (Edited by Master Yanyang, Zhang Hailong and Zou Xiang)
