Chitatsu
智達 (n.d.)

    A priest of the Dharma Characteristics (Hosso) school in Japan. In 658, together with Chitsu, he journeyed to China and studied the doctrine of the Dharma Characteristics school under Hsüan-tsang and his disciple Tz'u-en. They brought the doctrine back with them. Earlier, Doshoof Gango-ji temple in Nara went to China in 653 and studied under Hsüan-tsang. On his return he spread the Dharma Characteristics teaching at Gango-ji. Thus Chitatsu and Chitsuare regarded together as the second to propagate the doctrine of this school in Japan. After his return, Chitatsu lived at Gango-ji temple and disseminated the Dharma Characteristics doctrine.
