The Amano-san Kongoji-Temple has the only existing one page manuscript of Shandao's ( 善導 613-681) famous commentary Banzhouzan. We can determine the age of the manuscript as being copied at least during the Kamakura period from the existence of guiding marks for rendering Chinese into Japanese Kanbun. And we can understand that it is a manuscript of a different type from its style and the difference of its characters (慊恨/悔恨) , thus realizing the limits of philological studies. This manuscript gives us an example of a certainly precious object with historical value for Buddhist studies.
