Description About the author Contents
 
Fairly well known to scholars of Buddhist studies, Yogacara Buddhism remains practically unknown to ordinary practitioners due to the fact that, despite its enormous influence, it disappeared as a distinct school at the end of the first millennium. Another reason for its failure to achieve enduring popularity is the perception that its complex system of viewpoints, paths, and categories is difficult to grasp. While it does require a fairly significant commitment on the part of the student, much of the difficulty lies in the manner of presentation. Here, Tagawa Shun'ei makes sense of its seeming unwieldiness. He shows that what the Yogacara masters are talking about are, in many cases, everyday experiences shared by all, and that their focal points are things we all take for granted but that have no real explanation - even by researchers in modern psychology, physiology, chemistry, and physics. Eloquent and approachable, Living Yogacara deepens the readers' understanding of Buddhism's development.
