"If you believe, believe deeply. If you cultivate, cultivate fiercely.”
Seclusion and Awakening: With these words begins the incredible tale of the Chinese Buddhist Master, Wan Xing, and his quest for awakening. Taking these words to heart, he started his intense journey at an early age, running away from home to ordain as a monk in a Buddhist Temple. He carried this fervor with him to school, where he would volunteer to clean the public lavatories for two years in between his studies at the Buddhist institute. This was a starting point for his great devotion to his purpose. And when he finally decided that academic study would only take him so far, and that a more direct approach was called for, he had himself sealed into a cave for two years.
