    A monk of Kashmir and a translator of Buddhist scriptures into Chinese. Samghadeva went to Ch'ang-an in China between the years 365 and 384, and translated Buddhist scriptures there. From Ch'ang-an he moved to Lo-yang and then went to Mount Lu at the invitation of Hui-yüan who had heard of his reputation. Samghadeva's translations include the Medium-Length Agama Sutra, the Increasing by One Agama Sutra, The Eight-part Treatise, and The Heart of the Abhidharma.
