Hsüan-lang ［玄朗］ (673–754) (PY Xuanlang; Genrō): The fifth patriarch of the T’ien-t’ai school in China. He engaged in the T’ien-t’ai practice of concentration and insight under Hui-wei at T’ien-kung-ssu temple in Tung-yang. Thereafter he continued this practice on Mount Tso-hsi for more than thirty years. In his later years, he lectured on the T’ien-t’ai doctrines and devoted himself to training his disciples. Hsüan-lang transmitted the teaching to his disciple, Miao-lo, who, as the sixth patriarch, clarified and further developed T’ien-t’ai’s teaching and contributed to the restoration of the school.
