AbstractIn the Early Heian Period (830) Emperor Junna ordered the representatives of each school of Buddhism to submit a treatise summarizing the doctrines of their respective schools. The six treatises presented on this occasion included the bulky Ju-ju-shin-ron ("Treatise on the Ten Sages of the Mind"; Taisho No. 2425) of ten fascicles by the present author,outlining the doctrines of the Shingon School. However,this work proved to be too voluminous in comparison with the works presented by the other schools, and Kukai was requested to submit a simplified version. The result was this "Precious Key to the Secret Treasury."

Kukai's method in clarifying the position of the Shingon School was to formulate a system of critical categorization made up of 'ten stages of the mind,' embracing not only the various schools of Buddhism but also the religions of India and China; the Shingon School is ranked as the highest stage of all. It should be noted that the "Treatise on the Ten Stages of the Mind" is also known as the "Expanded Treatise"; in contrast,the present work is referred to as the "Condensed Treatise."
