Wǒnhyo(617 - 686) 

Wǒnhyo was one of the most influential commentators in East Asian Buddhism. A Korean monk who wrote in Chinese, he is famous not only for his many commentaries on scripture but also his propagation of Buddhism in Korea, in particular for his ecumenical approach to spreading the many Buddhist teachings then available. His greatest commentaries are those on the *Vajrasamādhisūtra, the Awakening of Faith, and the Mahāparinivāṇasūtra, all important scriptures in buddha-nature and original enlightenment theory.
