in a Nutshell - The teachings of the Buddha have, to this day, been passed
down from teacher to student. Around 475 A.D. one of these teachers, Bodhidharma,
traveled from India to China and introduced the teachings of the Buddha there.
In China Buddhism mingled with Taoism. The result of this mingling was the
Ch'an School of Buddhism. Around 1200 A.D. Ch'an Buddhism spread from China
to Japan where it is called (at least in translation) Zen Buddhism.
