The single greatest Tibetan commentary—never previously translated - on 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 Vasubandhu's Treasury of Abhidharma (Abhidharmakosa). In terms of stature and authority, Vasubandhu’s Treasury rivals Buddhaghosa’s 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 Jampalyang's exposition of it is the greatest flowering of Abhidharma studies in Tibet. Usually referred to as the Chimzo, 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.
