About “Xi Lai Yi”
Residing in the saha world as a temporary abode for the illusory body,The great chiliocosom shares the same light and dust.
I never ask the Patriarch’s intention in coming from the West,Being dedicated only to achieving the samadhi (deep concentration) of qin.
“Xi Lai Yi” Qin Workshop, established on the basis of Xie Xie Tang Qin Workshop in Shanghai, aims at cultivating and understanding the meaning of life through qin playing and qin making experience. While the way one makes a qin is not different from the way one conducts oneself; and the way one practices the qin is similar to the way one cultivates Zen as qins can express how they feel. We will be able to discover Zen in the inexplicable sounds qin makes, a well-performed piece of music as well as from each draw of the saw, each push of the planer and each chop of the hatchet. We hope to inspire people so that they will have this feeling of ease body and soul through such yin yuan or the cause and effect relationship.
