[chuck] in Andy Ferguson, Bodhidharma, Dharma, EHZC

Heard a fascinating talk last night at EHZC by Andy Ferguson, Chinese historian, translator, and author of the seminal Zen's Chinese Heritage: The Masters and Their Teachings. His talk was about Bodhidharma, the 6th century Buddhist monk who is traditionally credited with bringing Zen, or Chán, to China. As he carefully outlined in his talk, there are quite a few more details and nuances to this event than previously recognized.
