Tendai & Esoteric Teachings

So many who are familiar with East Asian Buddhism know that Mikkyo (Esoteric teachings) were prevalent with Shingon and also Tendai.

One thing I am really curious about is how the Esoteric teachings are interpreted through the Lotus Sutra framework as obviously Tendai holds that as the pinnacle and key to all the teachings.

What certain rituals, practices, and understandings are correlated to what sections of the Lotus Sutra and other things like that.

Look forward to some great info!
