Kuang-che-ssu ［光宅寺］ (PY Guangzhesi; Kōtaku-ji): A temple built in 502 (504 according to another account) for the priest Fa-yün by Emperor Wu of the Liang dynasty in China at the capital Chien-k’ang. Kuang-che means “abode of light.” Fa-yün lectured there on the Lotus Sutra, and for this Kuang-che-ssu gained wide renown. His lectures on the Lotus Sutra were recorded and compiled by his disciples as The Meaning of the Lotus Sutra. Fa-yün was also known as Kuang-che. In 587 T’ien-t’ai stayed at Kuang-che-ssu, where he lectured on the Lotus Sutra and the Benevolent Kings Sutra. His disciple Chang-an later compiled his lectures on the Lotus Sutra at the temple in a work called The Words and Phrases of the Lotus Sutra.
