This edited text exhaustively encompasses the latest studies on the Yogācārabhūmi, the largest Indian treatise with a total of 1,429 pages on the practices and philosophy of the Yogācāra school, an influential school of Indian Mahāyāna Buddhism.

This is regarded as the first-ever and most fundamental text dedicated to the Indian Buddhist school.

The volume brings together dissertations of 34 leading Buddhist specialists on the Yogācārabhūmi from across the globe, including Lambert Schmithausen of Hamburg University in Germany, Leonard van der Kuijp of Harvard University, Yoshimura Makoto of Waseda University in Japan, and Chen Bing of China's Sichuan University.

This also includes the scholarship presented by credited professors from the Geumgang Center for Buddhist Studies, such as Ulrich Timme Kragh who currently teaches at Leiden University in Netherlands, Cha Sang-yeob, Kim Seong-cheol, Buddhist Studies professor Park Chang-hwan, and Ahn Sung-doo of Seoul National University.

This series consists of three sessions. The first analyzes the Buddhist psychology of "conscious" and "subconscious" and elaborates the background and environment in which the Yogācārabhūmi was composed and redacted.

The second session examines the historical meanings of the Yogācārabhūmi, while the third breaks down how the Yogācāra school based on the Yogācārabhūmi was formed in India, how the text was accepted and changed in East Asian countries such as China and Korea, and finally how the school's teachings were interpreted in Tibet.

By tracing the origins of the thoughts presented by the Yogācārabhūmi and the Yogācāra school and providing a thorough survey of how they were transformed and adapted in India, East Asia, and Tibet, the authors for The Foundation for Yoga Practitioners: The Buddhist Yogācārabhūmi Treatise and Its Adaptation in India, East Asia, and Tibet aim to answer the question: "with what research methodology and how do we study Buddhism literature?"
