WHO IS WEI TUO
Wei Tuo (way too) is one of the eight deities
that protect the principles of Buddhism. He is referred to as the
Bodhisattva Skanda. He is the one who protects the Book of Wisdom
and laws. It is traditionally said, when the Buddha died, demons
stole the Book of Wisdom. Wei Tuo fought the demons and got the
relics back. Therefore, Wei Tuo became who he is now, a deity in
armor to protect Buddhism’s way of being. In Buddhist temples
you can find the statue of Wei Tuo behind the first Buddha statue,
facing the main Temple.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF WEI TUO QI GONG
Wei Tuo Qi Gong originated at the Shaolin Temple
on Jiu Lian Mountain in the southern province of Fu Jian during the
17th Century. The full
name is “Chinese Shaolin Diamond Chan Wei Tuo Hu Fa Men”.
Master Tong Jui is said to have started Wei Tuo Qi Gong in the later
part of the Ming Dynasty.
When the Qing Dynasty began in the late 17th Century,
many Han Chinese were rebellious. The Han Chinese wanted to be ruled
by Han Chinese,
not by foreigners.
The Qing were Manchurians.
Master Tong Jui was a leader of a small rebel force
in southern China. Because the monks of the Shaolin temple were hiding
rebels and were rebels
the Qing ordered the burning of the Southern Shaolin Temple in Fu Jian
Province. Therefore, the second heir of Wei Tuo Qi Gong, Master, Feng
Si Yu and his
students moved to Lu Fu Mountain in the northern part of Guandong Province.
the tradition was past down from master to master in secrecy. Wei Tuo
Qi Gong was a secret form until Master Si Tu taught it publicly.
