Paramartha and Xuanzang translations

Post by Jion » Sun Jan 05, 2020 10:50 pm

Hello there everyone, I am trying to track down a document which has Vasubandhu's romanized Sanskrit of the Abhidharmakosabhasya alongside the Paramartha and Hsuan Tsang translations. There is a post from 2010 which points to it but the link no longer works sadly. Does anyone have any bright idea? Any help gratefully received!

Many thanks and much love,

Jion

Show us the link, maybe there will be other clues.
May all seek, find or follow the Path of Buddhas.

Vasubandhu: Abhidharmakośabhāṣya
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

Hi Nicholas and Astus, thanks so much for getting back to me and for sending the link. It was exactly what I was looking for so that could not have been more helpful! I am extremely grateful and look forward to speaking again,

All the best,

Jion :thanks: :thanks:
