    Kataoka Shonen (??)

    Noritake Shunan (??) (head abbot of Reiun-in, sub-temple of Myoshin-ji)

    (Ikoma) Taikai Doken, pen name Sangen-to. He graduated from Hanazono University in 1957, and entered Shofuku-ji under Yamada Mumon. Went to Reiun-in in 1976, was secretary of Mumon when he was selected as chief abbot of Myoshinji in 1978. Afterwards he was recommended to be Zen Master of Kano-zan Zen center in Chiba (in 1982?). He was invited to be Zen Master of the Hanazono Zen dormitory of the Zen students in Hanazono University. He became the abbot of Seitai-ji in Gifu in 1987.

I've read most of them, one especially interesting one is the story of the trials he went through in Shofukuji, Itineraire d'un maitre zen venu d'Occident (Calmann-Levy, 1996, France).
    The other was Gerta Ital, a German woman who studied under Mumon and who it seems received shiho from him in 1967: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerta_Ital The story of her own trials in Japan is told in two autobiographical books (originally in German, translations as follows): The Master, The Monks, and I (Crucible/Thorsons, 1987, Great Britain) On the Way to Satori (Otto Wilhelm Bath Verlag/Scherz Verlag, 1990, Germany).

    [51] "Helo Dr. Ciolek, I have some additions to your web-site. I hope I am not burdening you with too much information, but your web-site was and still is very helpful in my own research, and I hope someone can find this useful.

    Hakuin was 35th Zen Teacher since Lin-chi (or Rinzai in Japanese) (according to Korin-ji, http://www.korinji.org/Lineage.html)

    Also I have several updates for the list:

    Kono Taitsu (1930-) was elected as Head Abbot of Myoshin-ji in December of 2009, post to take place from April of 2010. I think it is a two-year appointment, but I will check.
    Fukushima Keido 福島 慶道 (b. 1932-), was head abbot of Tofuku-ji form 1980- 2009 (he retired due to illness), and he was head of Tofuku-ji sect from 1991-2009. He was not Dharma Heir of Shibayama Zenkei but long-time student of his and of Okada Kido. He received his inka from Takayama Taigan, Zenkei's student (who was head abbot of Toshun-ji in Yamaguchi) and is his Dharma-heir.
    Seki Seisetsu 関 精拙 (1877-1945) had two students (neither a Dharma heir) that are not on the list:
    Shimizu Kosho 清水公照 (1911-1999), Kegon sect. He studied Zen under Seisetsu from 1933-1937. He held a number of positions in Todai-ji, Nara, culminating in being elected for two consecutive terms as 207th Head Abbot of Todai-ji in 1975, and 208th in 1978. He resigned in 1981, and spend his retirement as a very prolific artist. He was not a Dharma heir. (brief biography: http://www.riichi.com/kousyou/nenpyou.htm)
    Inaba Shinden 稲葉心田 (1906-1986), former Head Abbot of Kokutai-ji, Toyama Prefecture. Dharma heir of Taiko Yamazaki (1876-1966), Shokoku-ji. Also studied under Seisetsu Seki. From 1940 he was head abbot of Jisai-in, sub temple of Tenryu-ji. In 1964 he was elected to become Head abbot of Kokutai-ji, and also Head of Kokutai-ji branch of Zen.

    This is the lineage from Gisan Zenrai to Shinden Inaba: Gisan Zenrai (1802-1878) (Head Abbot of Sogen-ji, Okayama) [7][1] had (at least) one more student. Tekisui Giboku 滴水 宜牧 (1822-1899)

    He was 236th Head abbot of Tenryu-ji (from 1868) and head of the Tenryu-ji sect (from 1871). He restored Tenryu-ji, Jisai-in and Rinkyu-in. Dharma transmission from Gisan Zenrai in Sogen-ji, Okayama. He also practiced Zen under Gido Shoken in Tenryu-ji. His students were Ryusui Egyo, Ryoen Genseki (1842-1918), Toiku Tsuyo, Gazan Shotei (1853-1900) and Tesshu Yamaoka as a layman. (source Jikyu-an)

    Ryoan Genseki (1842-1918)

    (Hashimoto) Gazan Shotei (橋末) 峩山 昌禎 (1853-1900), 238th Head abbot of Tenryu-ji (from 1893) and head of Tenryu-ji sect. Dharma transmission from Tekisui Giboku. Also practiced Zen under Tairyu Bun'I in Shogen-ji. A younger pupil of Ryoen Genseki under Tekisui. (source Jikyu-an)

    [52] “Dear Dr. Ciolek, In a recent review of your Zen Buddhist database it has come to my attention that no one bothered to pass along an update regarding the passing of Fukushima Roshi. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keido_Fukushima
    Keido Fukushima 福島 慶道, Fukushima Keido (1933 – March 1, 2011) was a Japanese Rinzai master who has had an influence on Rinzai practice in the United States. He was the abbot of Tofuku-ji in Kyoto, Japan, where several American teachers (including Jeff Shore and Grace Schireson) and Muho Noelke, the German abbot of Antaiji, have trained. He made a large number of visits to the United States to lecture on Rinzai Zen Buddhism at universities, and held sesshins in Little Rock, Arkansas. He became a Buddhist monk at age fourteen and was trained under Okada Roshi and Zenkei Shibayama.[1]

    [54] "Hello Matt, I noticed that on June 3, 2013 described by this link I found in google search: Zen Buddhism - Hakuin School - Ciolek www.ciolek.com/wwwvlpages/zenpages/hakuin.html? Jun 3, 2013 - Wild Goose Zendo has a website, wildgoosezendo.org [...] When you can, please enter this new information about me: Afable, Jiro Andy ... you made a change in line of Afable. I do not know who requested this correction, perhaps Afable himslef as it looks form the above text, but the line is not correct.   He is not an abbot of Wild Goose Zendo, and the link leads to completely different teacher. Futhemore this zendo is not located in Sturbridge, Ma   Mr Afable was a founder of Early Light Zendo located in Sturbridge, and had his own website but it looks this website does not exist anymore. Thus we do not know where he teaches, and if he still teaches. We cannot find him on the internet anymore.   It is a bit of a mystery why he or someone else would mislead you.   Since he contacted you about changes, please corect the information by asking him. You must have his e-mail at least. You can check the links yourself in this line and see they lead nowhere.   Thank you very much, Urszula", Urszula Sapeta, email, 19 Jul 2013.

    [55] "Dear Dr. Ciolek, I am a friend of Junpo Denis Kelly Roshi and he asked to contact you to update his line in lineage at your website. Please, add link to his website www.mondozen.org  under Hollow Bones words. I have done it below, so new line should look as follows: Kelly, Junpo Denis (?-) [28] [Vice Abbott and Head Monk and Yoga Instructor at Dai-Bosatsu Zendo, Livingston Manor, New York, 1987 - 1993; Founder of the Hollow Bones Lay Order in 1999]   Thank you very much, Urszula."
