Bodhiruchi
(Skt)

    (1)菩提流支 (d. 527)( Jpn Bodairushi) The founder of the Chinese Ti-lun, or Treatise on the Ten Stages Sutra, school. A native of northern India, in 508 he went to Lo-yang in China where he translated thirty-nine Buddhist texts into Chinese including The Treatise on the Ten Stages Sutra, The Treatise on the Lotus Sutra, the Diamond Wisdom Sutra, and the Lankavatara Sutra. He is also regarded as a patriarch of the Pure Land school because he presented T'an-luan with a copy of the Meditation on the Buddha Infinite Life Sutra and because he translated The Treatise on the Pure Land, a commentary by Vasubandhu on the Buddha Infinite Life Sutra.

    (2)菩提流志(d. 727) ( Jpn Bodairushi): A translator of Buddhist scriptures who went from India to Ch'ang-an in China in 693. Born to a Brahman family in southern India, he first studied Brahmanism and later converted to Buddhism. In China, he stayed at Fo-shou-chi-ssu temple in Lo-yang, where he engaged in the translation of Buddhist scriptures. Together with Iching and others, Bodhiruchi assisted Shikshananda, a monk from Khotan in [[Wikipedia:Central Asia|Central Asia]], in translating the Flower Garland Sutra into Chinese, and in 699 the eighty-volume Chinese translation was completed. This version is noted as one of the three Chinese translations of the Flower Garland Sutra. Bodhiruchi also selected forty-nine Chinese sutras, some of which were his translations, and compiled them as the 120-volume Accumulated Great Treasures Sutra. He translated a total of fifty-three scriptures.

Bodhiruci was a Buddhist monk and esoteric master from North India (6th century CE). He became very active as a teacher following his arrival in Loyang, China in 508 (during the Northern Wei).

He produced translations of 39 works in 127 fascicles, including the Sutra on the Ten Grounds (Chi. 十地経論) and commentary, and the Shorter Sukhāvati Sutra with commentary. The former text became the chief object of study for the Ti-lun (地論) School, of which Bodhiruci is regarded as the patriarch.
