Ornament of Abhidharma: A Commentary on Vasubandhu’s Abhidharmakosa (Library of Tibetan Classics Book 23)

The single greatest Tibetan commentarynever previously translatedon one of the most well-known and cited works of classical Indian Buddhism.

This work by a scholar of the Kadam school is the most authoritative Tibetan commentary on Vasubandhus Treasury of Abhidharma (Abhidharmakosa). In terms of stature and authority, Vasubandhus Treasury rivals Buddhaghosas contemporaneous Path of Purification and deals with such central themes as the dynamics of emotions and karma, of mental and meditative states; it treats both the cosmos and the life within. Chim Jampalyangs exposition of it is the greatest flowering of Abhidharma studies in Tibet. Usually referred to as the Chimz, it is to this day a key textbook in the great monastic universities. A veritable encyclopedia, it spans all areas of classical Indian Buddhist knowledge and is an indispensable reference for scholars of Buddhism.
