AbstractThis article aims to understand the practices related to the Lotus Sūtra in Yongming Yanshou’s 永明延壽 (904–975) life and in one of his works, the Zhijue chanshi zixing lu 智覺禪師自⾏錄 (Records of Yanshou’s self cultivation). In this text, 108 daily events are listed as Yanshou’s self-cultivation. Of those related to the Lotus Sūtra, I have identified three categories: 1. the construction of Lotus halls (fahua tang 法華堂); 2. the veneration, printing and distribution of the Lotus Sūtra; 3. cultivation of the Lotus Samādhi. As this article shows, although Yanshou is well-known as a synthetic practitioner, embracing the doctrines of different schools and engaging in various practices, he always tried hard to integrate them under the ultimate goal ofattaining enlightenment.
