The Satyasiddhi (Ch.: Ch'eng Shih Tsung; Pinyin: Cheng Shi Zong or Chengshizong; Jp.:Jojitsu-shu; 成實宗) school of Buddhism is based on the text known as the Satyasiddhi-Shastra (成實論; Ch.: Ch'eng Shih Lun; Jp.: Jojitsu-ron), authored by the Indian master Harivarman. This treatise possibly arose during the first half of the fourth century, reaching the modern days through its Chinese translation only, by Kumarajiva.

Its main initial expounders in China were called the "Three Great Master of the Liang Dynasty": Seng-min (僧旻) (467–527 A.D.), Chih-tsang (智蔵) (458–522 A.D.) e Fa-yun (法雲) (467-529 A.D.). The three of them in turn received instructions in this treatise from the monk Hui-tz'u (慧次) (434–490 A.D.). The three of them also possibly influenced the writing of the Sangyō Gisho, a sutra commentary supposedly authored by Prince Shōtoku.
