Baotang Wuzhu (traditional Chinese: 保唐无住, 714–774CE), was the head and founder of Baotang Monastery (Chinese: 保唐寺) in Chengdu, Sichuan, south west China. Both (Kim Ho-shang) and Baotang Wuzhu were of the same school of Chinese Chán, the East Mountain Teaching (incorrectly known in Western scholarship by the pejorative nomenclature "Northern School").[1]
