There is published Ch'an work available on that topic about the Oral Tradition. In two volumes: In the sevenfold fashion it was a custom to divide possession and trusteeship of esoteric Knowledge among custodial parties to try to preserve it's continuation.

Hi Martin,

Interesting post. It invoked a thought about Mantra
Vidya. In the Bagavagita its stated that during the
Kali Yuga alot of the mental and breath work, isnt
"good enough" to reach realization, and that one has
to use mantra/sound. So essentialy each Yuga has a
prefered method for advancement, at least within the
Vedic Esoteric system.

I dont recall encountering this teaching in any other
Esoteric system.

Im curious if anyone has encountered this within our
teaching meta paradigm, as I have not ??
