Dharma Lineage of Sino Esoteric Buddhism

Sino Esoteric Buddhism is fundamentally a dharmakāya-based religion, signifying a succession of enlightened masters. Depending on the state of religious tolerance in China, Sino Esoteric Buddhism has existed uninterrupted either in secret, or in public, since the 8th century. Through dharmakāya transmission, the Tangmi lineage is carried on by many great Buddhist masters, including Master Huilang 慧朗, Master Qizhenxinghai 琪真性海, Master Rilunjiemo 日輪羯磨, Master Bayinduda 巴音都達, Master Jinyin 金音, and Master Jinke Xuanlei 金珂玄雷.
