There are no stupid questions. The San-chieh-chiao is the "Teaching of
the Three Levels", popular during the Sui and T'ang dynasty, suppressed
many times by the government and eventually driven out of existence.
Their manuscripts were thus entirely lost, but a number of texts turned
up in Tun-huang.
