The Songshan Shaolin Temple China is the sacred place of origin for Chan (Zen) Buddhism. It has a fixed internal structure and fixed rules from Buddhism and its own tradition. In order to make the Shaolin culture in Europe directly accessible, numerous offshoots of the Shaolin Temple were created in Europe.
The establishment of an offshoot of the Shaolin Temple must meet certain requirements. She must be from S.H. the Venerable Grand Master Shi Yongxin, Abbot of Shaolin Temple China, approved in writing. The abbot of a branch temple can only be appointed by the abbot of the Shaolin Temple China.
