Dan Lusthaus wrote me that the 17-bhūmi sequence of the Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra would be a good framework for pursuit of the Yogācāra.

Thanks Greg!

But I do have a caution when using Tibetan materials. First off, the reference Greg was making:


A very Tibetan Commentary on part of the Yogacarabhumi:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/96904086/Asanga-s-Chapter-on-Ethics-With-the-Commentary-of-Tsong-Kha-Pa
Asanga's Chapter on ethics with the commentary of Tsong-Kha-Pa, The basic path to awakening, The complete Bodhisattva. (Studies in Asian thought and religion; v. 4} Bibliography: p. Includes index. 1. Yogacarabhumi. Bodhisattvabhumi--Commentaries. 2. Tson­kha-pa Blo-bzan-grags-pa, 1375-1419. Byan chub gzun lam. 3. Bodhisattva stages (Mahayana Buddhism) 4. Buddhist precepts. 5. Asanga. I. Yogacarabhumi. Bodhisattvabhumi. 1986. II. Tson-kha-pa Blo-bzan- grags-pa, 1357-1419. Byan chub gzun lam. III. Asanga.
IV. Tatz, Mark. V. Seris. BQ3067.A85 1986 294.3'5 ISBN 0-88946-054-X (alk. paper)


Now, my Caution in the form of my Amazon Do Com review of one of THE BEST books on Yogacara "as the Yogacara breathed in their own atmosphere":


Distinguishing the Middle from the Extremes: A Study and Annotated Translation of the Madhyantavibhaga, Along with its Commentary, the Madhyantavibhaga-bhasya (Treasury of the Buddhist Sciences) [Hardcover]
Mario D'Amato (Author)

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent step-by-step summary of the Yogācāra December 23, 2012
By Leo Rivers
Format:Hardcover|Amazon Verified Purchase
I must point to Mario D'Amato's "Distinguishing the Middle from the Extremes: A Study and Annotated Translation of the Madhyantavibhaga, along with Its Commentary, the Madhyantavibhaga-bhasya" as an excellent example of what sympathetic modern academic scholarship can offer to people studying Buddhism in general, and in this book, a treasure of the Yogacara in particular. It has several important features that make it the one academically informed presentation you should have on your shelf, whether as a student or a practitioner of Buddhism.

1st, it is very readable and builds in its introduction an excellent step-by-step summary of the background and special features of the Yogacara, with examination in detail of chief texts, masters and the dates of these. Then its point by point exposition of the contents of the text is phenomenal, with every list of qualities set out in full and relationship to each other explained fully.

2nd, I must issue a warning here. Another reason I want you to select this rather than another translation is that many of these Yogacara texts by Asanga (4th Century) or "Maitreya" in modern English translation have been translated with their commentaries by Vasubandhu stripped away to make room for a commentary by a modern teacher of Tibetan Buddhism. Such commentaries written by Tibetan lamas familiar with Western Culture are excellent commentaries for modern students operating within traditions founded in Tibet between the 8th century and the modern era. But these later traditions are founded on very different principles than these texts which were originally written hundred of years before in the 3rd and 4th centuries! For that authentic context you are best informed by Asaṅga's own brother, Vasubandhu! This is why I prefer the Western Academic editions of these texts. These focus on providing the original context for these works and explanations from people like Vasubandhu (approximately 316-396 CE) and Sthiramati (mid 6th Century) who shared the World and World-View of the original compilers.
