I didn't want to spoil it but, it there are some theories floating around that Bodhidharma was possibly one of the students of Bhogar the famous Siddhar alchemist whose teacher was Kalangi Nathar also rumored to be Chinese and the reason Bodhidharma originally traveled to China.

Shit, looks like my teacher lineage is direct right to Bhogar and Kalangi Nathar if this is true.
