Bodhidharma was born a Pallava Kingdom prince in south India. Despite his power and privileged status, he became a renunciate, with the 27th India Patriarch Prajnatara as his Master. He gained enlightenment at age 22, becoming the 28th India patriarch, and then was instructed by his Master to go to China to teach meditation and spread the Mahayana doctrine. EVERYTHING that appears comes from the mind. Hence Buddhas of the past and future, teach mind to mind without bothering about definitions. On today’s episode, we explore the profound teachings of Bodhidharma.
