The dhyana master Buddhabhadra (Chinese: 跋陀; pinyin: Bátuó) was the first abbot of Shaolin Monastery.[1] Former Worthies Gather at the Mount Shuang-feng Stūpa and Each Talks of the Dark Principle contains the following reference to him: "Dhyana Master Buddha says: "The extreme principle is wordless. The sagely mind is unimpeded." (Broughton 1999:108) According to the Deng Feng County Recording, Bátuó came to China in 464 and preached Nikaya Buddhism

for thirty years. Thirty-one years later, in 495, the Shaolin Monastery

was built by the order of Emperor Xiaowen of Northern Wei for Batuo's preaching.[2] He either hailed from India or from Greco-Buddhist Central Asia.[3] Batuo's disciples Sengchou[1] and Huiguang were both expert in the martial arts by the time they began their studies of religion with Batuo.[4] Notes[edit]
