Description About the author
 
The Madhyantavibhaga is classified by later Indian, Chinese, and Tibetan traditions as belonging to the Yogacara school, and is considered to be one the treatises of Maitreya. The text offers a treatment of some key doctrines of the Mahayana, including the three-nature theory and the doctrine of emptiness, which is addressed in a specifically Yogacara manner. This volume is divided into two parts. The first part contains a study of the text, including an introduction to Yogacara philosophy, an overview of the Madhyantavibhaga-corpus, and a detailed exegesis of the text, incorporating interpretations offered in recent scholarship. The second part contains a fully annotated translation of the text and its commentary, making significant use of Sthiramati's subcommentary in the notes.
