The idealist Saicho, who viewed all people as 'children of Buddha', aimed for the establishment of the first lay-centered Buddhism in Japan. This book is the definitive guide to Saicho, reinterpreting his teachings based on the "Lotus Sutra" established at the secluded Hieizan mountain, by tracing his life from a new perspective.
