The volume brings together a selection of the late author's previously published papers written in English (and one in German). Their subject matter relates by and large to the tathagatagarbha theory or the idea of Buddhanature, which have been the main subjects of his research over the years. In part 1 he has singled out those scriptures that use the term tathagatagarbha as their principal term and identified three scriptures-Tathagatagarbha-sutra, AnĀµunatvapurnatvanirdesa, and srimaladevinirdesa-as the basis for the formation of the tathagatagarbha theory. Next, he has placed the Mahayana Mahaparinirvana-sutra, which uses the term buddhadhatu for the first time as a ynonym of tathagatagarbha, and associated scriptures in a second group, while in the third group we have the Lankavatara-sutra and so on, in which the concept of tathagatagarbha is Identified with alayavijnana, the basic concept of the Vijnanavada.Printed Pages: 615.
