Record of the Lineage of the Buddha and the Patriarchs, The ［仏祖統紀］ (Chin Fo-tsu-t’ung-chi; Busso-tōki): A work compiled in 1269 by the Chinese priest Chih-p’an, tracing the history of Buddhism from the viewpoint of the T’ien-t’ai school. It includes biographies of the eminent priests of India and China and a history of the transmission of the T’ien-t’ai doctrine. The first part concerns the life of Shakyamuni Buddha and the compilation of his teachings. The next part contains the biographies of the Buddha’s twenty-four successors in India, beginning with Mahākāshyapa and ending with Āryasimha. Chih-p’an then traces the lineage of the T’ien-t’ai school beginning with its first nine patriarchs: Nāgārjuna, Hui-wen, Nan-yüeh, T’ien-t’ai, Chang-an, Chih-wei, Hui-wei, Hsüan-lang, and Miao-lo. Priests of the Pure Land, Zen (Chin Ch’an), Flower Garland (Hua-yen), Dharma Characteristics (Fa-hsiang), and other schools are represented as well.
