The four-volume work presents texts representing over fifteen-hundred years of Buddhist thought bearing on the teaching of the Dharmadharmatavibhanga and the tradition of Maitreyan Yogacara to which it belongs. Much referenced in the Khara-Khoto collection, this book is the first volume dealing with the Maitreyan Yogacarin text the Dharmadharmatavibhanga. The most detailed study of Dharmadharmatavibhanga to date, it is primarily intended to study in detail the Avikalpapravesadharani and its commentary by Kamalasila, relating the doctrine taught in the Avikalpapravesadharani to that taught in the Dharmadharmatavibhanga. This common doctrine is the attainment, through a gradual process or transformation, of Buddhist gnosis or non-conceptual pristine awareness (rnam par mi rtog pa i ye shes, Skt. avikalpajana). The second volume presents the Dharmadharmatavibhanga and the Indian tradition to which it belongs by presenting translations and critical editions of the three root-texts comprising the Dharmadharmatavibhanga corpus. The succeeding volumes present indigenous Tibetan commentaries on the Dharmadharmatavibhanga, thus forwarding our understanding of Buddhism by studying the Tibetan reception of the Maitreya tradition. Volume Two will be published in August 2008 and subsequent volumes in late 2008.
