Daman Hongren


Daman Hongren (Ta-men Hung-jen, Daimen Konin), 601-74. The Thirty-Third Ancestor, the Fifth Chinese Ancestor. He taught at Pingmao shan, also known as Dongshan (East Mountain) and so his stream of the Lineage was known as the East Mountain stream of Chan while Daoxinís parallel transmission to Farong was called the Niutou or Oxhead stream. Later, the mountain was renamed Wuzu shan (Fifth Ancestor Mountain). See Denkoroku, Chapter 34.
