Bodhidharma

Bodhidharma (d. 536A.D.) was from the Brahman caste of South India and honored as the 28th Patriarch of Buddhism. At the temple, Bodhidharma had meditated in a small cave of the Wuru Peak for nine years and introduced Chan tradition into Shaolin Temple. He was revered as the first Patriarch of Chinese Chan Buddhism.

Huike (487-593, secular surname: Yi) was also known as Sengke and Shengguang, born in Hulao, Luoyang City(northeast of modern Xingyang City, Henan Province). He studied with Bodhidharma and succeeded Bodhidharma to become the Second Patriarch of Chan Buddhism. On the southeastern mountain nearby Shaolin Temple are the Second Patriarch Temple and Arm-heeling Terrace.

Faru (638-689, secular name: Wang), was born in the Shangdang area (modern Changzhi City, Shanxi Province). He studied with the Fifth Patriarch Hongren for sixteen years and acquired a thorough understanding of Chan Buddhism. Later, Faru lived and preached Dharma teaching in Shaolin Temple, and contributed a lot to the development of Shaolin Temple as the Chan origin. He died at age 52 in 689 at Shaolin Temple. Afterwards, disciples of the temple had built a pagoda for Fau.
