Master Shi Heng Yi - 5 hindrances to self-mastery | Shi Heng YI | TEDxVitosha

Meet Shaolin Master Shi Heng Yi in his serene talk about self-discovery. Learn why rainfall is an essential part of each flowering. And every small step - part of the journey to the highest peek. The hindrances along the way to self-discovery and personal growth are easy to overcome. Learn how from his talk. For more than 30 years, Master Shi Heng Yi has been studying and practicing the interaction between mind and body. His strength is the ability to smoothly combine this knowledge with physical exercises and to practice Martial art -Kung Fu and Qi Gong. He has an academic background but he prefers to live at the Shaolin Temple Europe, Monastery located in Otterberg, Germany. Since 2010 he has been taking care of the settlement and he personifies the sustainable development and spreading the Shaolin culture and philosophy. As a contemporary monk, Master Yi holds a smartphone in the folds of his clothes as he sees no contradiction between living together with ancient knowledge and high technology. “The universal law of being successful and happy at the same time means finding the balance”, says master Yi. And as for flying - yes, he really can do it! He only needs a stick and a little space. We expect him to fly-in and share about the Shaolin way at TEDxVitosha 2020.

    The concept of god was invented by ancient rulers in order to organize empires and centralize control. It has a partial functionality and partial insanity. The communist state is a god, and therefore it tried to dismantle the shaolin schools, until it realized that it could abuse it to train the populations to become disciplined unskeptical beehive soldiers and citizens (not unlike what Sun Tzu did for the old emperors).

    The first hindrance = Religion ,politics ,social pack animal dynamics, consumption, and territory defense. He is wrong about skepticism, because it is necessary to be a skeptic to dismantle the hindrances one by one. Ideally that tool reaches its saturation at the nirvana. The hindrances are basically about steps of natural evolution

    5 Hindrances to Self-Mastery @9:20 - These are different states of the mind that don't allow you to engage in the right decisions 1. Sensual desire [kamacchanda] ---- when you are tempted by your senses and side tracked from your main objective which can turn into an obsession 2. Ill will / aversion [byapada] ---- negative emotions against an object, a situation or a person 3. Dullness / heaviness [thinamiddha] ---- dullness of the mind, heaviness of the body (sleepiness, lack of energy, depression) 4. Restlessness [uddhacca] ---- state of unsettled mind, "monkey mind" (do not worry about the past or the future) 5. Skeptical doubt [vickiccha] ---- indecisive mind (what if this, what if that)
