The chapter introduces the beginning of the second controversy in the late Ming. This dispute concerns the identity of Tianhuang Daowu and Tianwang Daowu in the Tang dynasty. The author summarizes all evidence and explains how the literati first discovered the issue. The key issue here is the use of evidential scholarship in determining dharma transmission. The controversy started with the publication of Muchen Daomin's Chandeng shipu, which relied on the spurious inscription of Tianwang Daowu.

Keywords:   Tianhuang Daowu, Tianwang Daowu, Qu Ruji, Muchen Daomin, Huang Duanbo, dharma transmission, evidential scholarship
