Afterword to the Lotus Sutra Translation, The
法華翻経後記 (Chin Fa-hua-fan-ching-hou-chi; Jpn Hokke-hongyo-koki )

    A short account of Kumarajiva's translation of the Lotus Sutra into Chinese and of his work the Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law. It was written by the Chinese priest Seng-chao (384-414), one of Kumarajiva's major disciples. This document describes why the Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law, or the version translated by Kumarajiva, consists of twenty-eight chapters including the "Devadatta" chapter, while the Lotus Sutra of the Correct Law, Dharmaraksha's version translated prior to Kumarajiva's, consists of twenty-seven chapters. The Afterword to the Lotus Sutra Translation is included within The Lotus Sutra and Its Traditions, an eighth-century work by Seng-hsiang.
