Hsing-man ［行満］ (n.d.) (PY Xingman; Gyōman): A priest of the T’ien-t’ai school in China during the eighth and ninth centuries. He studied T’ien-t’ai’s three major works under Miao-lo. After Miao-lo’s death in 782, he lived at Fo-lung Monastery on Mount T’ien-t’ai. When Dengyō arrived at Mount T’ien-t’ai from Japan in the ninth month of 804 to further his studies, Hsing-man taught him the T’ien-t’ai doctrine and entrusted him with the major works of the school, including The Annotations on “The Profound Meaning of the Lotus Sutra,” Great Concentration and Insight, The Annotations on “The Words and Phrases of the Lotus Sutra,” and commentaries on the Lotus and Nirvana sutras. Hsing-man wrote A Personal Commentary on “The Annotations on the Nirvana Sutra” and The Meaning of the Six Stages of Practice. According to The Biography of the Great Teacher of Mount Hiei, Hsing-man said to Dengyō: “The sacred words will not become extinct. Now I have encountered this man! All the doctrines that I have learned I will transfer to this āchārya from the country of Japan.” After his return from China, Dengyō founded the Tendai (Chin T’ien-t’ai) school based at Mount Hiei.
