The Patriarch of Chan

CP, PatriarchStory By Wang Meizhi / Art by Guo Haoyun

In the sixth century, a Buddhist monk from India journeyed across the sea to China and changed the face of Buddhism forever. The Patriarch of Chan tells the life story of Bodhidharma, from his education as a youth in India to his travels in China where he denounces the actions of the emperor, spends years in meditative practice, and establishes the Chan lineage, a tradition that shapes Buddhism even today. With the striking brushwork of Guo Haoyun and a heartfelt script by Wang Meizhi, The Patriarch of Chan is a stirring graphic novel biography of this important figure.
