Grandmaster JinBodhi’s Journey to Meditation
Born a very sick child in a small town In the Hebei province of Chino, Grandmaster JinBodhi lived h s early years in poor living conditions. He suffered from all manner of illness caused by malnutrition and spent every day in pain and misery.
Not only did he suffer from his own illnesses, he also witnessed the tragic deaths of his older brother, who died of starvation, followed by his younger brother, who quietly passed away. He was haunted by his mother’s heartbroken crying, his father’s helplessness, the coldness of relatives, and mistreatment at school. All of these miseries were his first taste of what he later come to understand as the suffering of human beings.
When he was six years old, his family moved to Qinghai. a plateau region marked by Oxygen deficiency. As a result, his already pear health further deteriorated. His parents sought any possible treatments to save his life, but there was little improvement. Finally, they found a former lama (at that particular time no religious practice was allowed and monks were forced to return to secular life) and asked him to help.
The lama not only treated Master’s illness, but also taught him meditation practice. At the time, Master did not appreciate the unique healing methods. Only years later, after gaining a deeper understanding, he realized that the methods used to heal his illness were far beyond the ordinary approach. Rather than, for example, using a painkiller to alleviate a headache, he utilized energy to achieve a systematic whole-body adjustment and fundamental healing. That was the beginning of Master’s lifelong journey of meditation practice. He studied and practiced with various great masters and traveled from one monastery to another throughout the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau. His practice progressed, and a whole new world opened before him.
After 20 yea’s of meditation practice, his understanding of the charm° teachings deepened. He not only completely recovered his health, but also gained special healing power. When he saw other people afflicted with disease, he felt pain in his heart as if their Illness was happening In his own body. Helping others become essential to his existence. Ho felt a responsibility to help others tree themselves from suffering and regain happiness. His lifelong mission was born.
