This introductory chapter discusses the Buddhist philosophy of mind in East Asia. Modern scholars have distinguished two major streams of early East Asian Mahāyāna Buddhist philosophy. These are the doctrinal streams of Yogācāra and Tathāgatagarbha. These were the two most significant philosophies of mind to be received, studied, and interpreted by Wŏnhyo (617–686), and they provided the basic framework for his own philosophical perspectives. The chapter pays special attention to Wŏnhyo's treatment of these two doctrinal streams. It begins with a brief review of their general course of development, paying special attention to their symbiotic relationship.
