Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra - selected translations

Post by WuMing » Sun Aug 11, 2013 9:28 am

For those who are interested in the Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra, here is a new translation of selected chapters.
I am not sure if anybody has pointed to this work yet, but anyway, here is the link:
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.
- 空海 Kūkai in Unjigi 吽字義 The Meaning of the Letter Hūṃ
- Kūkai on the Philosophy of Language by Takagi Shingen and Dreitlein Eijō
Śrī Singha said to Padmasambhava:
Since buddhas and sentient beings are inseparable and the same, it is necessary to respect all sentient beings as being on the same level with the buddhas. Can you?
- translated by Malcolm N. Smith
