In this book an attempt has been made to expound the metaphysics of the Yogacara school of Buddhism in all its aspects and bearings. Chapters are devoted to a critical and constructive discussion of its idealistic core as well as its spiritual discipline. According to Prof. T.R.V. Murti, who occupied a conspicuous place in the galaxy of Indian philosophers, the author "has utilized nearly all the sources available on the subject and has given a faithful and persuasive account of this system of thought."
the Yogacara Idealismwas acclaimed as a unique contribution to the study of Buddhism on its first publication in 1962 and subsequently in 1975. This reprint after a lapse of ten years fills the need for the new generation of students and researchers.
YOGACARA SCHOOL OF BUDDHISM: A Bibliography by John Powers
One of the two main philosophical schools of Indian Buddhism (the other being Madhyamaka), the Yogacara school has received comparatively little attention from Western scholars. This bibliography is an attempt to begin to rectify this omission by providing a comprehensive guide to scriptural sources and authors, translations and critical editions of texts, and books and articles on Yogacara and related topics.
