I have rcsearched disciples who were guided by Nanyue Huisi (_??__??__??__??_), Tiantai Zhiyi (_??__??__??__??_) and various teachers of Tiantai, and those who practised Chan meditation in Mt. Tiantai (_??__??__??_) referring to the Tiantai Zhizhe Daishi biezhuan _??__??__??__??__??__??__??__??_ and the Guoqing bailu _??__??__??__??__??__??_ as supporting materials.
As a result, it was possible to confirm 41 disciples including not only priests but also laymen by means of searching “changuan _??__??_ (sitting in mednation)”, and “chanfa _??__??_ (method of repentance)” recorded in the Xu Gaoseng zhuan (_??__??__??__??__??__??_).
In this thesis, I have focused on such disciples as Huicui (_??__??_), Huicheng (_??__??_), Huiming (_??__??_), Zhiyi (_??__??_), Huiyao (_??__??_), Huichao (_??__??_) and Huisi (_??__??_), and tried to examine the trends in which Buddhist ascetics led and trained by Nanyue Huisi practised Chan meditation, based on the Xu gaoseng zhuan.
In a concrete form, I have tried to examine what kinds of training methods were practised by disciples belonging to the Huisi group, and in which regions in China they existed, in accordance with philological methods.
