As Buddhism spread in China, it adapted to Chinese culture. Monks stopped wearing the traditionals affron robes and adopted Chinese-style robes, for example. And in China, Buddhism met dragons. Dragons have been part of Chinese culture for at least 7,000 years. In China, dragons have long symbolized power, creativity, heaven, and good fortune. They are thought to have authority over bodies of water, rain, floods, and storms. In time, Chinese Buddhist artists adopted the dragon as a symbol ofenlightenment Today dragons decorate roofs and gates of temples, both as guardians and to symbolize the dragon’s power of clarity.
