O'Neal visits Chinese Shaolin Temple

  Martial arts have been an interest of Shaquille O'Neal, and he paid an emotional visit Monday to the Shaolin Temple in Henan province.

    "I've been a lot of places but being at the Shaolin Temple has brought a tear to my eye. Buddha blessed," the NBA superstar center wrote on his blog.

    O'Neal said visiting the temple, birthplace of Zen Buddhism, was not on his China tour schedule, but he could not resist the temptation.

    He was able to meet Shi Yongxin, abbot of the temple, and spent time discussing Zen (a school of Mahayana Buddhism, translated from the Chinese word Chan).Zen is believed to be the wisdom behind Shaolin and what makes Shaolin Kungfu unique and powerful.

    After that, O'Neal watched kungfu performances by the monk and was impressed with the Snake Style and Drunken Style.

    O'Neal promised to come back and spend more time to learn Zen and Shaolin Kungfu.
