An old Ch’an monk (believed to Venerable Shao Yun) remains seated and indifferent to the presence of an international guest.  In fact President Putin specifically requested that this monk should remain seated due to his age and renowned spiritual attainment at the Shaolin Temple.  Venerable Shao Yun was a disciple of Master Xu Yun (1840-1959).
