Bodhidharma is credited with bringing Buddha's teaching on sudden illumination fro India to China circa 530 ce and is identified as the twenty-eighth ancestor or successor to the transmission of the dharma (teaching, law, way) descending from Gautama Buddha, and the first ancestor in China. All Zen temples trace their lineage from Bodhidharma.
