The foundations of the Tiantai Tiantai Buddhism in the mountains: Identification Techniques in the creation and re-establishment of a Buddhist order Chinese on a ridge. Ghent University

school's dedication to this area resulted from the devotion to the school founder, Zhiyi, who chose the Tiantai
Mountains as the site for his school.
