This paper explores how the Tiantai Zhiyi 天台智〓 understands “The Truth of the Middle way 中道の理” using the Weimojing Wenshu (Commentary on the Passages of the Vimalakirti-nirdesa『維摩経文疏』). In this work, Zhiyi explores the idea of tongxiang sanguan 通相三観.
Tiantai Zhiyi, in his Weimojing Wenshu, understood insistence on nirvana while one turns from samsara to nirvana as “illness”, and understood emptiness as that “illness” as well. Tongxiang sanguan 通相三観 explains the Truth of the Middle Way from the standpoint of emptiness. This research demonstrates the need for further inquiry into Zhiyi's “Three Truths” thought.
