Abstract

This text was composed of three sections, “Outline of the chapter of the Lotus Sutra”, “Interpretation of the chapters' names”, and “Analytical division of the sutra”. Even though there have been several researches on this issue, the problem has not been resolved.
In this paper, I consider the concept of “the five natures” in the first section, the characteristics of the interpretation of the chapters' names of the second section, and the difference between the analytical division of the Fahua wenju and that of the third section.
According to my research, the text does not seem to have been written by Zhanran.
