“One misty spring morning in 1989, in the remote mountains of China’s Han Shan province, a Mendicant monk of the Northern School of the White Crane branch of Taoism, walked silently out through the front gates of the Heavenly Peak Temple
The monk carried a stone board, a set of seventy-two carved stone pieces, and an ancient scroll inscribed with brush and ink in elegant calligraphic script.
He also carried with him a secret which had lain cloistered and hidden for thousands of years.”
