Kuiji can be regarded as the most prolific commentary-author throughout the history of Chinese Buddhism and the successor of Xuanzang’s legacy. This talk will showcase the strategy and method that Kuiji employed in his exegeses and discuss some of the dynamics in the prospective of the transmission of Buddhism in the Chinese intellectual history. The topic of the talk touches several broader issues in the study of Chinese/East Asian Buddhism, such as “sinification” of Buddhism, Chinese Buddhist scholasticism, and the scholasticism in the Chinese/East Asian intellectual history in general.
