AbstractThis "Treatise on the Awakening of Faith in the Mahayana" presents a concise synopsis of both the theoretical and practical aspects of the central ideas of Mahayana Buddhism,and has therefore been widely read as an introduction to Mahayana Buddhism. It is a short work,but extremely important in the history of Buddhism,having exerted influence in China and Japan upon the various schools of Buddhism,such as Hua-yen (Jap.:Kegon),T'ien-t'ai (Jap.:Tendai),Ch'an (Jap.:Zen),Pure Land and Chen-yen (Jap.:Shingon).

However,many questions remain concerning the author and place of composition,it still being unclear whether it was composed in India or China, and whether the author Asvaghosa lived before or after Nagarjuna.
