It is a noble effort. I hope corrections are welcome. On the the Zen side, for example, is not correct to separate the Caodong line from Linji line. At least one of the Caodong school dharma transmitters was also in the Linji line. Won Buddhism is not in any line at all, but was independently founded and then decided it agreed with Buddhist doctrine.

I posted the map in the Dharma Wheel forum also and people have reported several errors.

I like what Matt J wrote: "As they say: Four buddhists, six opinions."

I don't know if you are the creator of the mind map, but the Thai Forest Tradition is as much Mahānikāya as it is Dhammayutika (Thammayut). And I wouldn't class Dhammakāya as a subdivision of Mahānikāya (more kind of an off-the-track movement of its own).

(And if the religion tree might cause confusion, the Ajahn Chah movement actually came from the Mahānikāya sect—not the Dhammayutika like it is written.)
