" ...a list of 2800 Buddhist monks in China, giving the dates of their births and deaths, and covering the period from the third century A.D. to 1698. To avoid confusion because of more than one person having the same name, the name of his native place or of his temple is placed before the name of each monk. All entries arranged chronologically. Sources are carefully indicated in each case ...." References: Teng, S.Y., Annotated bibliography of selected Chinese reference works, p. 175.
