My Dharma Lineage

I practice and teach within the late Chan Master Sheng Yen’s Dharma Drum Lineage of Chinese Chan that combines the lineages of Linji (Japanese: Rinzai) and Caodong (Japanese: Soto).  I started my Chan practice with Chan Master Sheng Yen in mid-1990s.  In early 2000s, I began to also practice with John Crook, the first lay Dharma heir of Chan Master Sheng Yen, and Simon Child, the second lay Dharma heir of Chan Master Sheng Yen.  After Chan Master Sheng Yen passed away in 2009 and John Crook passed away in 2011, I train mainly with Simon Child who gave me Dharma transmission on June 5, 2016.  An updated version of the Dharma Drum Lineage of Chinese Chan can be found here.
