Bodhidharma is Tamilian from Kancheepuram, South India.
There is no indication that he was killed. I believe your question might have been influenced by the film 7am Arivu. It is simply a fictionalization of the monk's life. Chines…e records simply state that he died. Given that he was supposed to be 150 years old (surely an embellishment), he probably died of old age.
yesh he has the power to control mind . its true . he is an Indian he is andhra pradesh telugu.He is the third son of simhavarma II from pallava dynasty. He knows kalaripayatt…u very well, and he also have kudalini power to control minds and make miracles. accually kalari is a oldest and first martial art in this world which is generated by the great ancient man "parashurama" It is the mother of all martial arts in this world their is no other martial art like kalari not only bodhidharma their are so many saint's gone through out the world from Inida in ancient period to teach culture, tradition, mankind, and technology and science, medicine to this world.
Bodhidharma is traditionally credited as the transmitter of Ch'an (Zen) from India to China. In this tradition, there are three principal sources for Bodhidharma's biography: … Yáng Xuànzhī's Record of the Buddhist Monasteries of Luoyang (547), Tánlín's preface to the Two Entrances and Four Acts (6th century CE), and Dàoxuān's Further Biographies of Eminent Monks (7th century CE). The texts differ on the date of his arrival, with one early account claiming that he arrived during the Liú Sòng Dynasty (420-479) and later accounts dating his arrival to the Liáng Dynasty (502-557). Modern scholarship dates him to about the early 5th century.
There are no contemporary Indian records about his life. The only records that do mention him come from China. They are very contradictory in nature as they say he was from Pe…rsia or from different areas of India.
Several sections of India claim the Bodhidharma. Among them are the Tamil Nadu State. It is impossible to determine, therefore, whether the Bodhidharma sopke Hindi or Tamil as… his birth language. It is likely that, if he received his education in India, he spoke Hindi for his work.
Bodhidharma most likely died of old age. Your question is no doubt based on the film 7am Arivu. It is a fictionalization of his life--i.e., the events portrayed never happened….
