Bodhidharma[edit]

I agree that the section of the page mentioning his supposed origins is inaccurate. You can see from the talk page that I have also reviewed the cited sources to show that his origins are not truly known. The page needs a total rewrite, but I am too busy with school work at the moment to do it. There needs to be more stress on the contradictory nature of the sources that mention him. There are some historians that don't even think he was a real person. This type of information is mysteriously absent from the page. If you or others have the time to make the changes, please remember that the article must keep to Wikipedia's NPOV policy. This means that all theories need to be covered, even those claiming he was from the Tamil region. --Ghostexorcist (talk) 21:19, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
