This art derives from Buddhism, emphasizing meditative concentration. When you wish to practice, you first have to close your eyes and empty your mind, seize control over your thoughts and eliminate confusion, calm your emotions and regulate your breath, focusing your spirit and energy. Then when practicing the sequence of postures, you have to have intention coursing through, not just make shapes. If your mind is moving randomly, your spirit scattered, intention distracted, you will be laboring in vain with these postures and gain no meaningful results. In the beginning of practicing these movements, you must work both mentally and physically on these postures, silently counting up to thirty repetitions. Gradually add more until you can do them to a count of a hundred and practice them three times a day. After a hundred and twenty days, you will have made an accomplishment. Having obtained both energy and strength, you can then reduce the practice to twice a day. Once your energy and strength can be concentrated and resolute, you can then reduce the practice to once a day. Once thoughts have ceased arising, you have succeeded.
