The First Disciples of Master Dao

/assets/image/STQI-Shi-Chang-Dao-Disciples-Ceremony-20220828-002-162-m12O.jpg

Congratulations to Rosemary Stehlik, Andrew Cheng, and Luka Pilasanovic on becoming the first disciples of Master Dao!

A formal and traditional ceremony was held on August 20, 2022. 

The ceremony formally recognizes these students as Shifu Dao's disciples. They are also now recognized by Shifu Dao's peers and their Shifu, Shi Guo Song. As disciples, they have taken on the responsibility to help carry on the 1,500 year old legacy of the traditional Shaolin teachings and philosophy. 

Also in attendance were Shi Chang Chuan, Master Dao's Shaolin brother, and the family and guests of the disciples.

The disciples took turns paying respects to Master Dao, and in return were given Shaolin Dharma names (listed by order of age):

  • Rosemary Stehlik - Shì Yǎn Ān (釋演安)
  • Andrew Cheng - Shì Yǎn Qīng (釋演清)
  • Luka Pilasanovic - Shì Yǎn Níng (釋演寧)

This establishes the first disciples of the Yǎn generation under the lineage of Shifu Dao and Grand Shifu Song.

Students may now greet these newly appointed disciples as 師兄 Shīxiōng (Senior Brother) or 師姐Shījiě (Senior Sister).

Master Dao has high hopes that these three will focus their energies on self-cultivation through Shaolin Chán 禪, to lead by example, and thereby develop the foundation for self-wisdom and benevolence.

Emituofo!
