Wouldn't this chart be more suitably located under Five Houses of Chán? I'd prefer to see a chart here of a timeline, of when the school and its Japanese counterpart was founded.
Also, it seems as though Caodong more or less continued the previous tradition of Chan whereas the new Lin-ji school broke new ground and separated.--18.104.22.168 (talk) 19:58, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi 22.214.171.124. The article on the Five Houses of Chán provides links to separate articles on those Five Houses; three of them contain lineage charts. I've added a section on the East Mountain Teachings to the Five Houses article, in response to your question. As for a timeline: go ahead!
As for continuation and "new grounds": is this a question, or just a remark? Greetings, Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 05:04, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
