Bodhidharma was a Buddhist monk who lived during the 5th or 6th century. He is traditionally

credited as the transmitter of Chan Buddhism to China, and regarded as its first Chinese

patriarch. According to Chinese legend, he also began the physical training of the monks of

Shaolin Monastery that led to the creation of Shaolin Kung Fu.

Bodhidharma is said to have travelled to the Shaolin Monastery. After either being refused

entry or being ejected after a short time, he lived in a nearby cave, where he faced a wall

for nine years, not speaking for the entire time.

This paiting describes his seating in the cave.In the middle painting small calligraphy was

from the stone monument in Xi`an city,China.The stone monument was built in Qing dynasty,The
