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.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
