Description Contents
The Alambana-pariksa, "Examination of the Object of Consciousness," seeks to establish that the object of consciousness (alambana) as it appears to us is unreal; only consciousness is real. Dinnaga (or Dignaga) was a student of Vasubandhu, and this text, although brief, is an influential work of the Citta-matra or Mind-Only school. Dinnaga is most famous as the author of the Pramana-samuccaya and founding father of the Buddhist school of logic, and he here uses reasoning to establish his thesis. This book includes Dharmapala's commentary, retranslations into Sanskrit from Chinese and Tibetan, English translations, and Tibetan texts.

Restored into Sanskrit from the Tibetan and Chinese versions and edited with English Translations and Notes and with copious extracts from Vinitadeva's Commentary.
