Chapter Summary

This chapter is primarily devoted to a brief discussion of the Esoteric Buddhist works in Chinese not contained in the four volumes of the Taishō dedicated to Esoteric Buddhism, i.e., vol. 18-21. It therefore includes those texts in the Taishō outside the formal Esoteric Buddhist section, works in the Zokuzōkyō, works found among the hoard of Buddhists manuscripts at Dunhuang texts in the non-standard Mt. Fang Tripiṭaka carved in stone, and the text corpus found in Yunnan, most of which are of Dali provenance. The intent is to provide an overview and succinct introduction to the Esoteric Buddhist material in Chinese, material that is either less well known or otherwise not readily available in Taishō volumes 18-21.

Keywords: Chinese texts; Esoteric Buddhist works; Taisho volumes 18-21; Zokuzōkyō
