"You might think that you can find a Buddha or enlightenment somewhere beyond the mind, but such a place does not exist."
Bodhidharma, known as Damo in the USA, was a Buddhist monk who brought Zen ( Chan) Buddhism to China. He also created Shaolin Qigong and Kung Fu at the Shaolin Temple. His teachings point to a direct experience of Buddha-Nature rather than an intellectual understanding of it. When you step on the path of Shaolin, Damo is your spiritual ancestor.
This carving of Bodhidharma's represents him sitting in a cave in a mountain above the Shaolin Temple, where he meditated for many years before becoming enlightened.
Shi Yan Lei is written in gold writing on the back.
