This chapter takes up the issue of how a distinctive Japanese Tendai Pure Land discourse was created by Tendai monks who were contemporaries of Kūya. The chapter focuses on two monks, Zenyu (913-990) and Senkan (918-983), who wrote the Amida shinjūgi and Jūgan hosshinki, respectively. They are the first extant treatises on Pure Land Buddhism written by Japanese Tendai monks. These treatises provided the foundation upon which Genshin was to write the Ōjōyōshū a generation later.

Keywords:   Zenyu, Senkan, Amida shinjūgi, Jūgan hosshinki
