Goke-shichishū (Jap., ‘five-houses, seven-schools’). A classification of the seven Chʾan Buddhist schools, during the Tʾang period, which derived from five lineages: (i) Rinzai from Lin-chi I-hsuan (Jap., Rinzai Gigen); (ii) Igyo from Kuei-shan Ling-yu (Jap., Isan Reiyū) and from Yang-shan Hui-chi (Jap., Kyōzan Ejaku); (iii) Sōtō from Tung-shan Liang-chieh (Jap., Tōzan Ryōkai) and from Tsʾao-shan Penchi (Jap., Sōzan Honjaku); (iv) Ummon from Yün-Men Wen-yen (Jap., Ummon Bunʾen); (v) Hogen from Fa-yen Wen-i (Jap., Hogen Bunʾeki). Rinzai then split, to make up seven: (vi) Yōgi from Yang-ch'i Fang-hui (Jap., Yōgi Hōe); (vii) Ōryō from Huang-lung Hui-nan (Jap., Ōryō Eʾnan).
