The identity between the purport of the perfect and esoteric teachings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The agreement of Tendai Perfect teachings of the Lotus Sutra and Esoteric Buddhism is one of the hallmarks of Japanese Tendai. I trace this idea from Indian sources such as the Dazhidulun to China in works by Zhiyi, Zhanran, and Yixing, finally ending in Japan with a number of figures such as Saichō and Annen. In doing so, I explore how the terms and their nuances gradually changed.
