Kegon School or School of the Flower Garland. One of six schools of Buddhism established in Japan during the Nara period (710–84)—see BUDDHISM IN JAPAN. The school originated in China where it was known as Hua-yen, and was based on the massive Avataṃsaka-sūtra (see AVATAMSAKA LITERATURE). In doctrine the school presented a totalistic view of the universe wherein the Absolute (ri) is immanent in every individual entity (ji) and each entity mirrors the Absolute.
