From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gunabhadra (394–468) was a monk of Mahayana Buddhism from Magadha, India. He travelled to China by sea with Gunavarma in 435. They were both treated as honored guests by Emperor Wen, the ruler of South China at the time. In China, he translated one of the key texts of Mahayana Buddhism, the Lankavatara Sutra, from Sanskrit to Chinese. He continued to be active in other translations and preaching.
