Dharmayashas
[曇摩耶舎] (n.d.) (Skt; Jpn Dommayasha)

    A monk from Kashmir in ancient India who traveled to China, where he translated Buddhist scriptures into Chinese. He studied Buddhism under Punyatara and was well versed in the Buddhist sutras and rules of monastic discipline. At about age thirty, he embarked on a series of journeys to other countries and visited China in the Lung-an era (397-401) of the Eastern Chin dynasty. In the early fifth century, he stayed in the city of Ch'ang-an and translated The Treatise on Shariputra's Abhidharma. There he widely disseminated the practice of meditation and later traveled west to Central Asia.
