AbstractThis book examines the thought of Yongming Yanshou (904-976), a Chinese
monk living in the prosperous Wuyue kingdom during the period of
disunity between the Tang and Song dynasties. Situating himself firmly
in the Chan tradition, Yanshou envisions an integration of the other
schools of Chinese Buddhism - Tiantai, Huayan, and Pure Land - under a
single Chan practice, the contemplation of mind (_guanxin_).

The last part of the book contains an annotated translation, along with
the Chinese original, of Yanshou's text on the contemplation of mind,
the _Guanxin xuanshu_ (The profound pivot of the contemplation of
mind). Whereas the _Zoku zoukyou_ version of this text is incomplete,
this version, copied from an eleventh century Japanese manuscript held
at the Tenri University library in Japan, is complete and carefully
collated with other extant versions.

This is a valuable resource not only as a study of the _Guanxin
xuanshu_, but also as an important contribution to understanding of the
transition from Tang to Song Buddhism.
