Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar een school in het Chinese boeddhisme die waarschijnlijk dateert uit de 6de eeuw, en die de mahayana-leer combineert met die van het taoïsme. In het hierdoor ontstane geloofssysteem ligt de nadruk meer op een meditatieve dan op een intellectuele benadering van verlichting. Tsj'an is nauw verbonden met zen. De term kan ook worden gebruikt om in het algemeen te verwijzen naar meditatie in het Chinese boeddhisme. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere a la escuela del budismo chino probablemente fechado en el siglo VI que combina enseñanzas mahayanas con aquellas del taoísmo para formar un sistema de creencias que enfatiza un método meditativo más que intelectual para la iluminación.
