There are three sect which have conveyed Zen. It is Soto sect around a core of Eiheiji or Sojiji and is Obaku sect around an affiliate Manpukuji in Uji-city Kyoto and is Rinzai sect although it have some difference in style of the ceremonies. Obaku sect is Chinese Rinzai sect that was Ingen Zenji conveyed in 17 century, so there is not big difference in the doctrine between Obaku sect and Rinzai sect. Rinzai sect have 14 fringe organization which named Daihonzan. Those are Myoshinji, Nanzenji, Daitokuji, Kenninji and etc..

At the Daihonzan, the top abbot who is called Kanchyo-sama, is living in there. And some executive priests will give license to monks and will control the follower temples. They will held the bestowal of the Buddhist ecclesiastical laws and will preach the sermon of Zen for the adherents. Under the Daihonzan, there are the special Zen training halls. There are 38 halls in all. Disciples of the follower temples and ordinary peoples with great ambitions have practiced Zen training.

In the case of entrance into the special Zen training hall, he became a monk into the follower temple and will get a guarantor by the master and have to enter to it after undergo the basic education of Zen. Whoever cannot enter into Zen hall, immediately.

The relation between master and disciple in Rinzai sect is absolutely definite. Bodhidharma was in the 28th successor from Buddha. The 38th successor was Rinzai Zenji. The Zen genealogy connected until today, is the 84th successor, Bunpo Nakamura Zen master who is in the top abbot of Nanzenji temple group. For that reason, Zen attach great importance to relation between master and disciple.

Chinese Zen had the prospered period or the decline period. So Japanese Zen had the rise and fall. About 300 years ago, Zen was on the decline. At that period, Hakuin Zen master strove. So, the training system of Rinzai sect could develop and connect until now. The relation of master and disciple till today is connected to Hakuin Zen master as for Rinzai sect.
