 Face to Face: the Meaning Comes Alive
So Dharma Transmission is about two people using the form of the ceremony as a vehicle, bringing forth their effort, and equal to the effort that is made, the meaning comes forth.
So another way is to see it as transmission of the untransmittable or transmission as identification of teacher and disciple, identification rather than something going from one person to another.
Transmission, not as something from A to B, but as identification, points directly to the teaching that each of us is already Buddha.

Dharma transmission is the facet of the master-disciple relationship that preserves the identity and integrity of the master's lineage.
With this type of transmission, there was the distinct possibility of no direct contact between a nominal disciple at a new temple and his new master or even between the disciple and any lineage representative of that master.
Soto monks desiring to uphold the principle of face-to-face transmission from master to disciple were faced with either converting to Rinzai or subjugating their own abilities and desires to contribute to the welfare of others.

 Roshi and his Teachers
Very briefly, the purpose of the system of Dharma transmission is to ensure that the mind-seal of enlightenment is passed on from teacher to teacher.
Because Dharma transmission is a prerequisite to becoming the head priest of a Soto branch temple, virtually all Soto priests meet this ritual requirement at a relatively early stage in their careers.
So in the Soto school, which is what almost all Japanese Zen is, Dharma transmission lacks the criterion of realization that ensures the continuation of an enlightened mind-seal from generation to generation.

When I mentioned "transmission of light," she said, "Oh, so you're not going to talk about anything that would be of interest to someone at my stage of training." Obviously, she assumed that the transmission of the light is something that happens only at the end of training.

The aspects of the transmission ceremony that reverse the role of teacher and student beautifully punctuate this fluidity of role, this unity of the light of teacher and student.

 KTD--Kagyu Forefathers' Role--   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This transmission is known as Kagyu, which means the "lineage of precept" or "lineage of command." It originated when Buddha Shakyamuni assumed the form of the sambhogakaya, which is the Buddha Vajradhara or Dorje Chang, and transmitted the Vajrayana Dharma of tantra.
The tradition of the Kagyu, therefore, is the transmission of tantra in an unbroken succession, or lineage, of the command or precept of Vajradhara.
Of the various ways that this transmission has come down to the present day, one is known as the long lineage, which began when it was received from the Buddha Vajradhara by the bodhisattva Lodro Rinchen, or Ratna Mati.

Our Teacher is Dr John Crook, teaching in the Dharma Drum lineages of Linji and Caodong Chan, transmitted through Chan Master Sheng Yen who is based at the Chan Meditation Center in New York, and also in Taiwan.
To pass the Dharma to a European Westerner, a layman without the training of a monk, a man without rank in the Dharma, living far from either of the Chan centres in New York or Taiwan, may appear premature, if not unwise.
In the case of John Crook the transmission is not something accidental.
