Bodhidharma was the 28th Buddhist Patriarch in India and the first Buddhist Patriarch of China. He was the founder of Shao Lin Temple, hidden in the scenic mountains of China, the purported birthplace of martial arts. But why did this great Indian Buddhist Master risk everything to travel to China? What really was his goal there? How did he become the first Buddhist Patriarch in China? Black and white with illustrations.
