Mo pai: Introduction
The word “pai” means lineage and so “mo pai” is a kung fu lineage. Mo pai is a system of 72 levels, which includes a lot of meditation and nei kung exercises and methods. According to one source there is only one master of mo pai at present who is the student of Lao sifu, a master who is no longer living.
Mo pai is an extremely secretive art and it is very difficult to find any information about the different 72 levels or even just some lessons to start with. There are also no masters teaching mo pai as it is strictly forbidden among their circle. The most famous information on mo pai comes from the videos of John Chang (not his real name) on YouTube, which are truly amazing to watch. There is also only one western student, Jim McMillan, that we know of who was able to become the student of John Chang.
In my research I have also found references of people selling the manual for mo pai for large sums of money $450-$1,650 and people who are interested very much in mo pai actually considering to pay the sum for the slim chance that the manual could be genuine. So you can see the interest in mo pai is huge.
Apparently, mo pai is such a powerful art that in the wrong hands it can lead to disastrous consequences, which is why it is kept so secret, however, through research I was able to find the following guidelines for people who want to start developing themselves in this secretive art.
Mo pai: Beginner guidelines
Start by getting to know your own body a lot better. Study yourself. Find a quiet time, take a comfortable position and pay attention to all the signals your body is giving you. The first thing you will learn to be aware of is blood flow. Start attempting to feel how the air is entering your body and how it is moving inside your body. The purpose is to become a lot more sensitive than we normally are and become aware of the position of your organs, bones, muscles, fluids. You must become aware of what is going on in your body. If you can not sense the energy then you will have a hard time directing it.
This does take a very long time generally speaking. Naturally some people will be able to relax sooner than others and learn sooner, but people generally develop themselves over years. That said, if you never start you will never get anywhere.
It is also important to conserve your sexual energy. There is a massive loss of energy when people relieve themselves through a sexual act or self pleasure and it takes a long time for this energy to get replenished to be used again. Instead, imagine this energy rising to your head and going back down along your spine nourishing all the cells and organs in your body. It also takes a long time attempting to do this until you start actually feeling the energy.
