A Buddha is someone who finds freedom in good fortune and bad.
Bodhidharma was a Buddhist monk who lived during the 5th or 6th century CE. According to a Chinese legend, he began the physical training of the Shaolin monks that led to the creation of Shaolin Kung Fu. Several stories about Bodhidharma have become popular legends, which are still being used in the Ch'an and Zen tradition. One of those legends is 'wall gazing' according to which he faced a wall for nine years, not speaking for the entire time.
