We construct a canonical Markov process on the tangent bundle of a complete Riemannian manifold, which generalizes the isotropic scattering transport process on Euclidean space. By inserting a small parameter it is proved that the transition semigroup converges to the Brownian motion semigroup provided that the latter preserves the class C0. The special case of a manifold of negative curvature is considered as an illustration.
