One thought on “Transformation 2012 and Beyond: Dedicate The Joy of Heart

  1. You may wonder if there’s been a cross-pollination between the Indian hatha yoga and Chinese qigong over the centuries. This could be very well the case, since China and India are geographically relatively close to each other. For instance, it’s said that Bodhidharma, a 6th century buddhist sage from India, has taught Chinese monks exercises to keep fit. This suggests that there was indeed mutual influence. However, qigong is really quite different from hatha yoga, both in the way they’re practised as in their underlying theories. So if there was any mutual influence at all, it must have been minimal. Yet in today’s Western world, qigong and yoga increasingly blend into each other – which is good, as both systems have their merits.
