‘Kaiwei shiwen sishierzhang’ 開幃試問四十二章 in the Siming zunzhe jiao xing lu (四明尊者教行録 Record of the Venerable Siming's Teachings and Practices) is composed of 42 questions on Tiantai Doctrine, and is a test which Siming Zhili 四明知礼 (960-1028) assigned to his disciples.
In this paper I tried to analyze the contents of this text in compassion with ‘Kaii shimon shijunisyoto’ 開幃試問四十二章答 written by Koken 光謙 (1652-1739). I will examine this text to understand the fundamental thought of Tiantai Buddhism in the Early Song. Thus the mutual relations of this text and ‘Jiangwei wenda sanshizhang’ 緯幃問答三十章, ‘Jiaomen zawenda qizhang’ 教門雑問答七章, ‘Sizhong sidi wenda’ 四種四諦問答 are confirmed too.
