Bodhidharma  was a Faith religious who lived during the 5th/6th century and is traditionally credited as the directional man and communicator of Zen (Asiatic: Chán, Indic: Dhya-na) to China. According to Island story, he also began the somatogenetic preparation of the Shaolin monks that led to the activity of Shaolinquan. Nonetheless, military study historians possess shown this fable stems from a 17th century qigong drill acknowledged as the Yijin Jing.

Small contemporary account collection on Bodhidharma is surviving, and ulterior accounts became bedded with legend, but most accounts concord that he was a Hindu from southern India's Pallava Empire.Scholars have over his approximate of nascence to be Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu.

After becoming a Religionist jazzman, Bodhidharma cosmopolitan to China. The accounts dissent on the appointment of his comer, with one early accounting claiming that he arrived during the Liú Sòng Royalty (420-479) and afterward accounts dating his achievement to the Liáng Dynasty (502-557). Bodhidharma was primarily open in the lands of the North Wèi Royalty (386-534). Moderne scholarship dates him to most the untimely 5th century.

Throughout Faith art, Bodhidharma is delineated as a rather ill-tempered, profusely bearded and wide-eyed barbarian. He is described as "The Blue-Eyed Uncivilized" in Asian texts.

The Anthology of the Patriarchal Writer (952) identifies Bodhidharma as the 28th Patriarch of Religion in an uninterrupted genealogy that extends all the way backward to the Gautama himself. D.T. Suzuki contends that Chán's growth in popularity during the 7th and 8th centuries attracted critique that it had "no sceptred records of its unvarnished sending from the founder of Buddhism" and that Chán historians made Bodhidharma the 28th man of Faith in salutation to much attacks.
