AbstractThis treatise,called "Diamond Needle," presents a biting critique of the authoritarianism of the Veda scriptures and the supremacy of the Brahmans in Brahmanism,the traditional religion of India, from the standpoint of Buddhism. It also refutes the Brahmanical caste-system,asserting by means of various allegories that the four castes be equal,and denounces any toleration of such a system.

The Chinese translation ascribes this work to Dharmakirti,but in the Sanskrit original the author is given as Asvaghosa.
