This volume contains four important texts in the Tiantai Lotus tradition: The Infinite Meanings Sutra, composed as an introduction to the Lotus Sutra, and The Sutra Expounded by the Buddha on the Practice of the Way through Contemplation of Bodhisattva All-embracing Goodness are part of the so-called Threefold Lotus Sutra. The Commentary on the Lotus Sutra is a translation of the Saddharmapuṇḍarīka-sūtra-upadeśa (Jpn. Myōhorengekyō upadaisha), a commentary on the Lotus Sutra attributed to the eminent Buddhist philosopher Vasubandhu. A Guide to the Tiantai Fourfold Teachings is a translation of a tenth-century text by the Korean monk Chegwan that presents an introduction to the teachings of Zhiyi (538–597), founder of the Tiantai tradition.
