About the transmission in Huai Xuan 2-part course.
Liu Yuan, 18th-19th century Huai Xuan founder, had thousands of disciples, amongst which 4 were known to be the best ones. From the 4 Li Songshan 李松山 was considered the number one. Li Songshan likewise had thousands of disciples, amongst which the most outstanding was Li Dianhou 李甸侯 who followed his teacher for 40 years in northern Sichuan. After Li Dianhou’s passing hundreds of Dianhou’s disciples collected and arranged his teachings into a compilation titled Huai Yin Shi Yu Collected Sayings from the Locust Tree Shade. Huai Yin was the northern Sichuanese branch nickname. Huai Xuan 槐轩 means the Locust Tree Canopy, whereas Huai Yin 槐荫 is the shade of that canopy.
