I could see the 8-consciousness model as expanding on the consciousness-related elements of the equation & related dynamics but I would not think it a correlate- ichinen sanzen incorporates several non-consciousness elements.
So it seems. It is almost like a type of condensed Abhidharma.
It s something revealed in the Lotus Sutra . refined by teachers and brought to us in a practical sense by Nichiren Shonin.
Ichinen sanzen is a construct from the Lotus sutra.
Nichiren Shonin managed to finally utilize it in enabling ordinary humans to discover Buddha Nature within ourselves .

It allows the practitioner to see their daily life as a construct of mind and Karma .
We get to watch ourselves .

thats where i am at anyway. words eh...intelecualizing it eh...necessary but a distraction eh.

It has to be experienced along with the teaching...over time.....
