a school of BUDDHISM introduced into Japan by Korean MONKS around 625. It was nihilistic in tone being based upon a study of COSMOLOGY and PSYCHOLOGY strongly influenced by HINDU thinkers such as NGRJUNA and DEVA. It taught that both the ego and all DHARMAS are equally illusory and conceived the past and future as non-existent while the present vanishes as soon as it occurs.
