This chapter focuses on Qiyuan Xinggang’s Dharma successors. Qiyuan Xinggang had seven officially designated Dharma heirs, although many more disciples either lived at the Lion-Subduing Chan Cloister or spent time with her on retreat. Of these seven, Yikui Chaochen is the most well-known; she was the author of Qiyuan Xinggang’s biography. Meanwhile, Yigong Chaoke was one of the two nuns charged with the leadership of the Lion-Subduing Chan Cloister after Qiyuan Xinggang’s death. The remaining five Dharma heirs include Yichuan Chaolang, the other nun summoned to take over the leadership of the Lion-Subduing Chan Cloister; Yiyin Chaojian, who became the abbess of a newly refurbished Protection of Goodness Convent in Danghu; Puwen Chaoyuan, Yiran Chaoshe, and Guding Chaozhen.

Keywords:   Qiyuan Xinggang, Dharma successors, Lion-Subduing Chan Cloister, Yikui Chaochen, Yigong Chaoke, Yichuan Chaolang, Yiyin Chaojian, Puwen Chaoyuan, Yiran Chaoshe, Guding Chaozhen
