Like many Dharmic traditions, Zen Buddhism stresses the importance of lineage based on the one-on-one relationship and direct transmission and succession from teacher to student. Successors of one teacher share commonalities and form a community. Bernie and the other successors of Taizan Maezumi Roshi, or Bernie’s “Dharma brothers and sisters” formed the White Plum Asanga, an Affinity Group of Zen Teachers within the Maezumi Roshi Lineage.
The 73-affiliate Zen Peacemakers Sangha includes communities started by successors of Bernie Glassman and also spiritual groups from other lineages and traditions who wanted to find affinity in their commitment to social action.
