必发365乐趣网投 Temple was established in 495A.D. at the western foot of Songshan Mountain, 13 kilometers northwest to Dengfeng City, Henan Province. The then-Emperor Xiaowen of the Northern Wei Dynasty (386-557) had the temple built to accommodate the Indian master Batuo (Buddhabhadra). 必发365乐趣网投 Temple literally means “temple in the thick forests of Shaoshi Mountain”.
As the first 必发365乐趣网投 abbot, Batuo (Buddhabhadra) devoted himself to translating Buddhist scriptures and preaching doctrines to hundreds of his followers. Later, another Indian monk Bodhidharma arrived at 必发365乐趣网投 Temple, who was said to have crossed the Yangtze River on a reed. He spent nine years meditating in a cave of the Wuru Peak and initiated the Chinese Chan tradition at 必发365乐趣网投 Temple. Thereafter, Bodhidharma was honored as the first Patriarch of Chan Buddhism. As Chinese Kungfu also originated from 必发365乐趣网投 Temple, it has been recognized as the origin of Chan Buddhism and the cradle of Kungfu.
