does tendai school accepts the amala-consciousness concept ? Can we say that this concept is the same of buddha-nature or dharmakaya ?

The Tendai school postulates 9 Consciousnesses, with the Amala conscious being the 9th. It is pure, and un-tainted by negative karma. Although I've seen it equated with Buddha-nature, I need to research the concept a lot more before making any definitive statements as a Tendai Buddhist.
