Chinese Buddhism

Buddhism was introduced into China in AD67. There are four major schools of Chinese Buddhism - Ch'an (or Zen as it is better known in Japan), T'ien T'ai, Hua - Yen and the Pure Land School. Ch'an split into two schools - the Southern school of Hui-neng favoured the notion of sudden enlightenment, whilst the Northern school of Shen-hsiu favoured the gradual path.
