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

47 editions published between 1907 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 372 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."--BOOK JACKET

19 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in Sanskrit and English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation of one of the most important texts of Mahayana Buddhism makes a clear case for why we should strive energetically to achieve the unsurpassable state of enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings, and having formed that intention, how we should practice the bodhisattva path. A comprehensive description of the bodhisattva's view, meditation, and enlightened activities. Bodhisattvas are beings who, out of vast love for all sentient beings, have dedicated themselves to the task of becoming fully awakened buddhas, capable of helping all beings in innumerable and vast ways to become enlightened themselves. To fully awaken requires great generosity, patience, energy, discipline, concentration, and wisdom, but we all have the potential to develop these qualities since we have the seed of buddhahood. The classic verses of the Ornament of the Great Vehicle Sūtras are accompanied by two renowned Tibetan commentaries, each translated for the first time in a modern language. The commentaries draw on the tremendous richness of the Indo-Tibetan tradition, discussing the message of the verses with lucid engagement"--

'Rya Asanga's Bodhisattvabh'mi, or The Stage of a Bodhisattva, is the Mah'y'na 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 Mah'y'na sutras. A classic work of the Yog'c'ra 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 Mah'y'na tradition
