Help us help the world! 
Shifu landed in America in 1992 with a dream to change the world through Shaolin Kung Fu & Cha’an Buddhism philosophy. Although we have accomplished a lot, Shifu’s dream is big and cannot be achieved alone. Cha’an Buddhism encourages everyone to bring good to the world, to do good, and not bad, to help yourself by helping others. Your time to do so is precious. Every little contribution counts. Every dollar matters and every bit of support is appreciated. If you think you’re too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito in your room! Amituofo!

Since 1994, Shifu has been keeping temple doors open for all in Manhattan. From daily kung fu classes for adults and kids to tai chi, Cha’an Buddhism philosophy and much more, our temple in NYC has been able to transform lives from all walks of life. 

· Manhattan Rental Space· Temple Utilities

· Labor and Supplies

· Community classes for students who cannot afford tuition
· Temple Maintenance
In 2010, USA Shaolin Temple planted permanent roots. Through contributions from Shifu’s students and disciples, the Temple purchased 80.88 acres of land in Fleischmanns, NY.

· Engineering/Architectural Plans· Temple Foundation

· Labor and Supplies

· New Power Lines & Poles

· Connection of Temple to Bathhouse

· Gate into the Property

· Parking Lot

· Restructuring Road

· Renovation of Shifu Shi Yan Ming’s Cabin

With your help, the philosophy will be able to survive, and thrive! Your generosity will allow Shifu to provide lessons in Ch’an philosophy year-round on Shaolin land. Your love will help Temple provide a home to a beautiful altar and meditation room. It would allow Temple to host joyous ceremonies, like weddings, birthdays, and seminars. And your support will help Temple jumpstart its ambitious orphanage program, which seeks to take in orphaned children from all over the world and allow them to live the true Shaolin way.
The time to act is now! If the Temple is not complete within Shifu Shi Yan Ming’s lifetime, the direct transmission of the knowledge, history, philosophy, and traditions of Shaolin will be lost forever.

Follow your heart. Help spread peace, love and respect to the entire world!
