    About the Book

    The Vijnanavada school of Buddhism rep-resents the latest and final form of that religion, the form in which, after having transformed India's national philosophy and leaving its native Indian soil, it spread over almost the whole of the Asiatic continent up to Japan in the East and Asia Minor in the West where it amalgamated with Gnosticism. The Madhyanta-Vibhan-ga-Sastra of Maitreya-Asanga with its commentaries, the bhasya of Vasubhandhu and the tika of Sthiramati, belong to the most fundamental works of this Vijnanavada (Yogyakarta) school of Northern Buddhism. This present book contains English translation of the first part of the text i.e. the double essence of ultimate reality. The book is divided into five chapters. They are Ch. I Introduction, Ch. II. The Universal constructor of phenomenal reality; Ch. III The three-fold aspect of the constructor of phenomena, Ch. IV The dynamics of the creator of the world-illusion; Ch. V The absolute. The translation contains the karika' s of Maitreya-Asanga, besides a translation of Vasubandhu's bhasya in full as well as of the tika of Sthiramati.
