Although the philosophy of the tathagatagarbha has been widely debated in academia for almost a century, most of the dialogue remains limited to academic circles, while practitioners follow their own mode of understanding. I try to explore ways of reconciling these two standpoints by taking Ven. Yin Shun and Ven. Sheng Yen as examples. The two masters upheld historical fact whilst also tending to the needs of faith-based practice. Both regard the tathagatagarbha as a compulsory part of the overall Dharma and prudently clarify and promote it. Ven. Sheng Yen both recognizes and stays true to the viewpoints of Ven. Yin Shun as it relates to the tathagatagarbha, whilst also diligently promoting the belief aspect of the tathagatagarbha in a transformed and progressive manner. Rather than contradicting Ven. Yin Shun's views, his views highlight the characteristics of his point of view in the discourse of traditional Chinese Buddhism. Ven. Sheng Yen has thereby aptly demonstrated how to communicate the traditional views of Chinese Buddhism alongside the Humanistic Buddhism of Ven. Yin Shun which emphasizes the original teaching of the Buddha.
