NoteThe Mo-ho chih-kuan by T'ien-t'ai Chih-i (538--597) is among the most influential treatises in the long history of Buddhist scholarship. It stands as one of the most important treatises of Sino-Japanese Buddhism, not only for the brilliant insights revealed therein, but also in its systematic and comprehensive treatment of both the teaching and practice of the Buddha Dharma. Paul L. Swanson has spent many years rendering this voluminous work into English, and has finished translating the first four fascicles (from the Introduction through Chapter 6), some thirty-five percent of the entire work. This elaborate annotated translation, with additional rich resources in its appendixes, provides the original source material for a deeper understanding of T'ien-t'ai philosophy and practice, which later became the foundation for a great number of Buddhist movements in China, Korea, and Japan.
