AbstractOne of the so-called 'Three Major Works of the T'ien-t'ai School' (v. No. 72),this work is a collection of lectures delivered by Chih-i,the founder of the Chinese T'ien-t'ai School,and recorded by his disciple Kuan-ting (Jap.:Kanjo),and is also known as the Ten-dai-ma-ka-shi-kan (Ch.:T'ien-t'ai-mo-ho-chih-kuan) or simply Shi-kan. It is the basic exposition of the methods of practice employed in the T'ien-t'ai School,and describes the methods of practice for observing clearly the essence of the mind. It is divided into 10 chapters, but is incomplete,with Chapters 8 to 10 missing. However,it is a work which has exerted considerable influence upon the later development of Buddhism in China and Japan.

Being based as it is on Chih-i's own religious experiences and practice,this work is held in particularly high esteem,and it is in fact due to this work that Chih-i has been looked upon as the greatest of all Buddhist leaders in the history of Chinese Buddhism.
