    THE UNIVERSAL VEHICLE DISCOURSE LITERATURE (MAHAYANASUTRALAMKARA) THE UNIVERSAL VEHICLE DISCOURSE LITERATURE (MAHAYANASUTRALAMKARA)
    trans. by Robert A.F. Thurman

    Universal Vehicle Discourse Literature (Mahayanasutralamkara) was transmitted from the bodhisattva Maitreyanatha to Arya Asanga, the fourth century Indian Buddhist scholar-adept. The most foundational of the set of the famous Five Teachings of Maitreya, the Discourse Literature is considered the wellspring of what the Tibetans call the "magnificent deeds trend of the path," the compassion side, which balances the "profound view trend of the path," the wisdom side. The Discourse Literature is also considered to be metaphysically aligned with and foundational for the Idealist (Vijnanavadin) school of Mayahana thought.

  • ON KNOWING REALITY: The Tattvartha Chapter of Asanga's Bodhisattvabhumi ON KNOWING REALITY: The Tattvartha Chapter of Asanga's Bodhisattvabhumi
    by Asanga / Janice Dean Willis, tr.

    On Knowing Reality is the first English translation with commentary of a crucial chapter of the Bodhisattvabhumi, composed in Sanskrit in the late fourth century by the philosopher-sage Asanga, founder of the Yogacara school of Mahayana Buddhism. The chapter is the core of Asanga's theoretical teachings: it deals with the central epistemological question of how to judge and validate knowledge, and how confusions about "reality" arise.

  • DISTINGUISHING DHARMA AND DHARMATA BY ASANGA AND MAITREYA DISTINGUISHING DHARMA AND DHARMATA BY ASANGA AND MAITREYA
    by Thrangu Rinpoche

    Asanga in the fourth century meditated on Maitreya for twelve years and then was able to meet the Maitreya Buddha (next Buddha) directly, who gave him five works including this text. Asanga then went on to found the Mind-only or Chittamatra school of Buddhism.
    This text, which contains both the root verses of Maitreya and a commentary on these verses by Thrangu Rinpoche, begins by giving the characteristics of dharma which is ordinary phenomena as perceive it as unenlightened beings. Phenomena is described in detail by giving its characteristics, its constituents or elements, and finally its source which is the mind. Discussed are the eight consciousnesses especially the alaya consciousness and how it creates the appearance of this world. Understanding dharma allows us to understand how we build up a false illusion of this world and this then leads to our problems in samsara.
    Next, the text discusses dharmata or phenomena as it really is, not as it appears, in detail. In describing this sphere of reality or pure being, the text gives the characteristics of dharmata, where it is located, and the kinds of meditation needed to develop a perception of the true nature of reality.
    Finally, there is a discussion of how one transforms ordinary dharma into dharmata, i.e. how one reaches awakening or enlightenment. This is discussed in ten famous points and this is actually a guide or a map to how to proceed along the Buddhist path.
    This text has been extensively studied in Tibet, particularly among the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions. Now the student can read this profound work and a clear commentary on it by a world-renowned scholar who has been studying and also putting this text into practice for the last half century.

  • DEBATE OF KING MILINDA DEBATE OF KING MILINDA
    by Bhikkhu Pesala

    This abridgment of the "Milinda Panha" provides a concise presentation of this masterpiece of Buddhist literature. It presents Buddhist doctrine in a very attractive and memorable form as a dialogue between a Bactrian Greek king, Milinda, who plays the "Devil's Advocate" and a Buddhist sage, Nagasena. The introduction outlines the historical background against which the dialogues took place, indicating the meeting of two great cultures- that of ancient Greece and the Buddhism of the Indus valley which was a legacy of the great Emperor Asoka. Topics include questions commonly asked by Westerners such as "If there is no soul, what is it that is reborn?" and "If there is no soul, who is talking to you now?"

  • RATIONALITY AND MIND IN EARLY BUDDHISM RATIONALITY AND MIND IN EARLY BUDDHISM
    by Frank J. Hoffman

    Here is a study of rationality and mind based on the earliest recorded stratum of Buddhism, the Pali Nikayas. The author makes a distinction between what can be said from within the context of the Buddhist texts themselves and what can be spoken of from the point of view of contemporary philosophy of religion.
    Insights from philosophy of religion are employed to elucidate the texts without any overall imposition of any foreign 'ism' onto Buddhism.
