There was a time when Japanese Buddhism only catered to the upper classes.
That all changed in the Ninth century when two Japanese monks, Saicho (767-822)
and Kukai (774-835), went to study religion in China. When they went back to Japan,
they had with them new texts, ideas and practices that revolutionized Buddhism and made
it practical and accessible for the common people.
