AbstractIt has long been recognized that the Ekottarika-āgama in Chinese translation (Zengyi ahanjing 增壹阿含經), Taishō no. 125, contains Mahāyāna elements. Although some of them were probably interpolated into the Chinese translation of the Ekottarika-āgama after the text had been brought to China and translated, this paper demonstrates that at least two had already crept into the Ekottarika--āgama at the time it was passed down in India. The Ekottarika--āgama is most likely to be of Mahāsāṃghika origin. This school interacted with the Mahāyāna in a reciprocal manner. On the one hand, certain branches of the Mahāsāṃghikas borrowed materials from Mahāyāna literature and mixed them with their texts, including the Ekottarika-āgama now preserved in Chinese translation.
On the other hand, the Mahāsāṃghikas’ reformulation of certain early teachings was incorporated into their Ekottarika-āgama, which served as a medium for spreading the new doctrine in Mahāyāna circles.
