The first complete English translation of Asaṅga's Mahāyānasaṃgraha, the most important and comprehensive Indian Yogācāra text, and all its available Indian commentaries. These three volumes discuss virtually everything anybody might want to know about the Yogācāra school, one of the two mainstream approaches of the mahāyāna. The ten chapters of the Mahāyānasaṃgraha present a complete overview of the Yogācāra view, such as the nature and operation of the eight kinds of consciousnesses, the often-misunderstood notion of "mind only" (cittamātra), dependent origination, the cultivation of the path, and its fruition in terms of the four wisdoms and the three kāyas of a buddha. The first volume's introduction gives an overview of the Mahāyānasaṃgraha and its Indian and Tibetan commentaries and includes a comprehensive exposition of two crucial elements of the Yogācāra view--the ālaya-consciousness and the afflicted mind (kliṣṭamanas). This volume concludes with English translations of the Mahāyānasaṃgraha and its commentary by Vasubandhu. Volume 2 contains English renderings of the commentary by Asvabhāva and an anonymous Indian commentary on only the first chapter of the Mahāyānasaṃgraha. All these translations are supplemented in the endnotes by excerpts from Tibetan commentaries and related passages in other Indian and Chinese Yogācāra works. Finally, the appendices in volume 3 include a number of excerpts from other Indian Yogācāra texts, as well as supplementary materials on major Yogācāra topics in the Mahāyānasaṃgraha.
