Ming-sheng; 明勝; (n.d.) (PY Mingsheng; Jpn Myosho)

A priest of the Three Treatises school (Sanlun) in China from the sixth through the seventh century.

Along with Chi-tsang, he was a disciple of Falang (507-581).

According to one account, Shan-tao, the third patriarch of the Chinese Pure Land school, first entered the priesthood as Ming-sheng's disciple and studied the Lotus and Vimalakirti sutras under him.
