K'ang-seng-hui
康僧会 (d. 280) (PY Kangsenghui; Jpn Kosoe)

    A monk originally of Sogdiana in Central Asia. His family had moved to Indochina because of his father's business. There he lost both parents and decided to become a monk. In 247 he went to Chien-yeh, the capital of Wu, one of the Three Kingdoms of China at the time, and there propagated Buddhism. He was revered by Sun Ch'yan, the ruler of Wu, who built a temple called Chien-ch'u-ssu for him. There he taught Buddhism and translated Buddhist sutras. He is known for a Chinese translation of the Sutra of Collected Birth Stories concerning the Practice of the Six Paramitas.
