This appendix looks at Gyōnen's personal beliefs on the Pure Land school of Buddhism, which although not directly enunciated, can be surmised from the positions of those who influenced him (both directly and indirectly), and from how he describes those positions. The appendix first considers how Gyōnen looks at his teachers Enshō, Chōsai, and Shinkū, and his description of the Southern Sung figure Yüan‐chao. It then considers relevant statements scattered throughout Gyōnen's writing that speak of certain issues in Pure Land doctrine, specifically the concept of the triple mind or sanjin.
