The Kingdom of Min
Chapter 3 examines the origins of the prevailing religio-political network in Min and argues that some of the defining features of the mature Chan tradition—the compilation of flame records, monasteries whose abbacies were reserved for members of Chan lineages, sustained governmental support, and association with the imperial ancestral cult—are evident in this kingdom. It begins by introducing Yicun and Shibei—their biographies, teachings, lineage affiliations, monasteries, and their relationships with Min’s rulers. It then details the divisions that formed among these monks’ disciples.
