|NOTES||A Japanese school of Buddhism named after Tien Tai mountain in China and the Tien Tai school of Chinese Buddhism that arose there. In 805 Tendai was introduced in Japan by Saicho at his Enryakuji temple on Mount Hiei near Kyoto. Saicho's teachings were based on the 'Lotus Sutra' and centered around his belief that all forms of life can equally attain Buddhahood. Tendai includes aspects of Shingon and Shinto. Many popular branches of Buddhism arose within Tendai, making it incredibly broad. Pure Land, Zen, and Nichiren all have their origins in Tendai. Although Tendai is still a viable school of Buddhism in Japan, it is less important than the three above-mentioned schools.|
