The universal vehicle discourse literature = Mahāyānasūtrālaṁkāra by Asaṅga( Book )

36 editions published between 1907 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 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 Mahayana thought." "Translated from Sanskrit, Tibetan, and Chinese by Lobsang Jamspal, Robert Thurman, and the AIBS team, the present work contains a fully annotated, critical English rendition of the Discourse Literature along with its commentary (bhasya) by Asanga's brother, Vasubandhu. It also includes an introduction covering essential historical and philosophical topics, a bibliography, and a detailed index. This long-awaited work is the founding cornerstone of the AIBS Treasury of the Buddhist Sciences series."--Jacket

The Bodhisattva path to unsurpassed enlightenment : a complete translation of the Bodhisattvabhūmi( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ārya Asaṅga's Bodhisattvabhūmi, or The Stage of a Bodhisattva, is the Mahāyāna tradition's most comprehensive manual on the practice and training of bodhisattvas--by the author's own account, a compilation of the full range of instructions contained in the entire collection of Mahāyāna sutras. A classic work of the Yogācāra school, it has been cherished in Tibet by all the historical Buddhist lineages as a primary source of instruction on bodhisattva ethics, vows, and practices, as well as for its summary of the ultimate goal of the bodhisattva path--supreme enlightenment. Despite the text's seminal importance in the Tibetan traditions, it has remained unavailable in English except in fragments. Engle's translation, made from the Sanskrit original with reference to the Tibetan translation and commentaries, will enable English readers to understand more fully and clearly what it means to be a bodhisattva and practitioner of the Mahāyāna tradition."--Dust jacket
