One of the most popular world martial arts legends, Budhi Dharma, with his original style of Kalaripayattu and Kundalini, is well-known for his spiritual trip from India to China. On the way, he stoped in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and other places to spread his knowledge of Buddhism. One historical place that he stopped in Indonesia is Mount Batukaru at Tabanan, Bali.
He spent 18 years in Bali to spread Buddhism, as well learning the 72 original style of Balinese Martial Arts (Silat) from the last generation of Silat Arda Chandra lineage master, Ki Goplo. Ki Goplo is the last disciple of Silat Arda Chandra from Seruling Dewata style. Silat Arda Chandra has 12 styles, one of them is Silat Seruling Dewata. Silat Seruling Dewata divided into 72 original styles such us drunken style, tali rasa (Tai Chi), earth and sky style, tiger style, snake, eagle, mantis, crane, monkey, dragon style, and so on.
After mastering all 72 original Balinese silat, at 641 AD Budhi Dharma announced the founding of Silat Seruling Dewata at Mount Batukaru in Tabanan Bali as an independent style, continuing the past Silat Arda Chandra lineage and Budhi Dharma becomes the leader of the first generations. Nowadays, Silat Seruling Dewata is led by Ki Nantra, as the leader of the ninth generations.
A few years after founding Silat Seruling Dewata, Budhi Dharma continued his spiritual trip to spread Buddhism to several places and ended in China. In China, he founded the world famous martial arts style, which is the Shaolin Temple style. After founding Shaolin Temple, Budhi Dharma did not come back to Bali to lead Seruling Dewata, but prefers to handover it to his disciple, the second leader which are the twin master Ki Mudra and Ki Madra.
