I was reading about 5 levels and I cam across Bodhiharama supposedly a qigong & zen master base this 5 levels. Has anyone attain one these? Does this cultivation practice of storage qi or purifying/increase qi flow? Venerable Bodhidharma was about to go back to India. He said to his students, "The time has come. Can you express your understanding?" 1 One of the students, Daofu said, "My present view is that we should neither be attached to letters, nor be apart from letters, and to allow the Way to function freely." 2 Bodhidharma said, "You have attained my skin." 3Nun Zongchi said, "My view is that it is like the joy of seeing Akshobhya Buddha’s land just once and not again." 4Bodhidharma said, "You have attained my flesh." 5Daoyu said, "The four great elements are originally empty and the five skandhas do not exist. Therefore, I see nothing to be attained." 6Bodhidharma said, "You have attained my bones." 7Finally Huike came forward, made a full bow, stood up, and returned to where he was. 8Bodhidharma said, "You have attained my marrow." 9 Thus he transmitted the Dharma and robe to Huike. 10
