Bodhiruci was a Buddhist monk and Vajrayana master from North India (6th century CE) active in the area of Luoyang, China. His 39 translated works include the Ten Stages Sutra (Chinese: 十地経論) and commentary, and the Amitabha Sutra with commentary. According to the University of Oxford, Bodhiruci is regarded as the patriarch of the Dashabhumika (Chinese: 地論宗; pinyin: Dìlùn zōng) school, which used his Ten Stages Sutra as its chief object of study.[1]
