Leadership Lineage Scroll

A lineage (or Dharma) scroll in Buddhism is a recorded line of transmission of the Buddhist dharma (enlightened teaching) that has been transmitted through the ages from master to their dharma heirs that can be arguably traced back to the Buddha himself. The acknowledgement of the transmission can be oral, or certified in documents. Several branches of Buddhism, including Ch’an and Zen, maintain records of their historical teachers. These records serve as a validation for the living exponents of their tradition giving cultural authority.  Given here are the Dharma Scrolls of both OEB’s Prior, Xi-Ken Shi, and Vice-Prior, Yao-Xin Shi.  Both are from the Ch’an and/or Soto Zen traditions.  The originals with their seals are in the position of our leadership, and are available for viewing on request.
