Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of primary sources and secondary sources that are mentioned in the book The Power of Patriarchs: Qisong and Lineage in Chinese Buddhism. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. Chinese Buddhism arose out of the convergence of classical and popular Chinese culture with Buddhist teachings and practices that began arriving from South and Central Asia in the first century of the common era. The book explores what may be regarded as one of the most significant of these drastic and important changes: the appearance in the medieval period of a novel source of religious authority, the patriarch. The Indian Buddhist tradition offers no shortage of exemplary figures, beginning with the Buddha himself. The book pays close attention to Qisong so as to add another layer of material and a different angle of analysis to the study of Chan lineage.

Keywords: Chan lineage; Chinese Buddhism; Indian Buddism; Qisong
