Abstract

Along with the Chan's "linguistic turn", the significance of sutras, which were despised and even regarded as the obstacle to complete enlightenment, became accepted by the Chan. Due to Yanshou's contributions, the principle that emphasized the diversity of teaching in terms of the relationship between meaning and expression in the Sui and Tang Dynasties has been changed into a system which stressed the importance of the root/branches relationship of the mind and words. According to Yanshou, the conflict between the Chan and doctrinal teachings is resolved by highlighting the significance of words. Yanshou's work greatly inspired the Chan's interest in words in the Song Dynasty. 𠈔𸕃𰔨𣐵𡀡𱄉𣑇𰍀 "𵠡𵌨𣎘𶜖𡔡", 𢔢𠄐𱄉𣑇𱐵𢌰𰍀𠌕𥥅𡀨𥥅𩜂𵝰𤑱𡁀𠄂𡑗 𣘷, 𰑖𣕅𠄐𸔹𡝶𡀨𥥅𠅴𤡇/𵌨𠡑𱦕𵊂𤈰𣕅 "𵠨𧡡" 𢉸𴜁𹙀𙥹𰍀𡀨𷌢, 𤌐𣕑𡀨𥥅𱍡𠦆 𠄂𤔕𙦂𥦑𣎃𰍀𦐒𦐐𲑧𦔀𠡑𱦕, 𥤥𠡔𢌒𴜁𶢐𱄉𥥅𠡑𱦕𰍀𡔖𦄂𠄴𣕘𸐅𵠵 "𥦑𣐱" 𰍀𤡇 𠁁𠦄𦅴𠦆𦑩. 𤌐𣕑𰍀𤘅𤠙𢌒𤑖𢠣𱉃𤈰𨘈𡑗𠄂𣐵𠆕𱄉𠜑𣕅𥦑𣐥𰍀𠡒𶉙.
