About the Author

MAITREYA and ASANGA are traditionally considered the progenitors of the Yogacara, one of two great currents of Mahayana view and practice. Their works have achieved the status of unique spiritual classics.

KHENPO SHENGA (1871-1927) contributed tremendously to the nonsectarian Rimé movement in Tibet. His commentaries on the classic Indian Buddhist treatises have become part of the core curriculum in numerous monastic colleges throughout Tibet and South Asia.

JU MIPHAM (1846-1912) displayed a universal genius as he wrote on all aspects of Buddhist theory and practice, as well as on the traditional sciences. He is one of the most influential figures to come out of the Tibetan tradition in recent centuries.

The DHARMACHAKRA TRANSLATION COMMITTEE is committed to making Buddhist classics available to modern readers in their native languages. It draws its inspiration from the vision, commitment, and magnificent achievements of past Buddhist translators.
