Teacher Miao Dian 妙滇 (Miào diān) was born in 1977, in Athens. At a very young age he tasted the bitter side of life and lived his first years in the largest orphanage in Athens. The George Chatzikonsta orphanage.
Later he was forced to migrate along with his father in Germany where he began being taught Shaolin Gong Fu, under the strict supervision of his guardian and teacher Liang Che, until his teacher passed away.

There he became the disciple of master Heng Jun 恒君 (Héng jūn). Under the guidance and the teachings of his teacher he was brought forward to the abbot Yan Fo 延佛 (Yán fú) of the Fa Wang monastery 法王寺 (Fǎ wáng sì), a 34th generation senior teacher of the monastery.
