AbstractAsanga is one of the most important philosophical personalities in the history of Buddhism. His contribution to Vijnanavada School of thought is unparalleled. The Vijnanavada school of Asanga is also known as Yogacara. For Asanga and others, the Absolute truth, i.e. pure consciousness (Vijnana) can only be realized by practice of yoga. That indicated the practical side of this school, while the word “Vijnanavada” brings out its speculative features. In its practical application it is described as Yogacara, i.e. following the path of Yoga.

The Mahayanasutralamkara by Asanga is a landmark in the development of Vijnanavada absolutism. This is a gigantic work on Mahayana Buddhism. The title itself indicates its manifold features of Mahayana. Putting it in Asanga’s own words, its an embellishment of Mahayana sutras. There is no Buddhist topic which is not touched by Asanga. Various topics of Buddhism are discussed on the lines of Mahayana in twenty-one chapters called Adhikasas with commentary.

The present book contains English translation of the Sanskrit text and commentary of the Mahayanasutr-alamkara. The book contains notes and an index of the terms. The book is published under Biblio theca-Indo Buddhica Series.
