Juefan Huihong (覚範慧洪 1071-1128) who was a Chan priest in the lineage of Linji-zong Huang long-pai (臨済宗黄龍派) during the Beisong dynasty (北宋) wrote many books in his life. His works, the Linjian lu 林間録, the Chanlin Sengbao zhuan 禅林僧宝伝, etc., convey valuable records. Although his works were criticized as exaggerated and highly speculative by Dahui Zonggao (大慧宗杲, 1089-1163), it is found that some of his descriptions were frequently quoted by other Chan priests in their works. These quotations were adopted as very important records, especially in the late twelfth century Rentian yanmu (人天眼目) of Huiyan Zhizhao (晦巖智昭). This report attempts to consider the estimation of Huihong, focusing on quotations from his books found in the Rentian yanmu. Most of the quotations from his work were descriptions about the Caodong-zong (曹洞宗), and descriptions that cannot be found in others' works were included. From this, it seems that the book the Rentian yanmu is an important record quoting Huihong's works. In conclusion, we can give an estimation of Huihong because his works provide a valuable record of the Caodong-zong.
