Traces of Bodhidharma

South Mountain Tours, which leads trips to sites in China connected with Zen history, has a number of interesting clips on YouTube. Take a look at this one, dealing with the recent rediscovery and restoration of the burial place of Bodhidharma, the Indian monk whose teachings mark the beginning of the Zen lineage in China. An interesting thing to see in the South Mountain clips is evidence of what has been called a resurgence (or perhaps reemergence) of Buddhism in China.
