Shaolin monks are much like other monks in their beliefs- their ultimate goal is to achieve enlightenment by ridding themselves of earthly desires. But the way they go about their lives is so extreme, you might wonder if these men are earthly at all.

Shaolin monks believe that what their bodies can take is a reflection of the strength of their mind.   Their training is highly intensive and focused on areas like balance, strength and endurance.

The limits to what these amazing men can do with their bodies is endless. This just shows us how we can push the limits of what we think is possible. When we can do this physically, we can extend beyond and do it mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

These images give us a glimpse into their world and show us what the human body is capable of. I was left speechless after seeing these.
