MAHAYANASUTRALANKARA OF ASANGA
MAHAYANASUTRALANKARA OF ASANGA
Description
About the Book:

Asanga is one of the outstanding philosophical personalitics in teh line of Buddhist writers. His work Mahayanasutratanka is a land mark in the development of Vijanavada Buddhism. In fact it deals with almost all the topics of the Buddhism. But this work hasn't got it due place in the field of research. Asanga himself is neglected thinker lide Vasubandhu and others. The present monograph is an attempt to bring out significant contribution made by Asanga to the Buddhism in General and Vijnanavada in Particular.

This Monograph registersa deviation from the average stand point from which writers on the Buddhism are apt to look at the Philosophy of Vijananavada School. The learned author rightly points out that Asanga's main contribution to the Buddhist philosophy is absolutistic approach to Reality, which is very nearer to Upanisadic absolutistic tren. Vijanavada presented by Asanga is undouftedly an absolute Idealism.

This Monograph covers wide range of the Buddhism in Comparitive light such as conception of the Absolute, Phenomena, doctrine of illusion, Truths, Self, Nirvana, Tathata, Tathagata, Kayas and so on. All these subtle problems concerning the Metaphysics and religious aspects of Vijanavada have been discussed in clear, authentic and schorly manner. The author has made certain observations which throw light on the relation between the Upanisada and the Buddhist Philosophy which is very important from the point of view of comparitive study in the field of philosophy.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
