Here is another publication on the Philosophy of Vasubandhu… but in the nature of reinterpretation. The translation is faithful to the letter as well as to the spirit of the original texts, and is eminently readable. The learned author merits words of praise for the fresh outlook that he has brought to bear on the subject. - S.K. Ramachandra Rao, Bulletin of the Indian Institute of World Culture, Vol.5, No.12, December, 1985 We are fortunate to have available now the study on Vasubandhu by Kochumuttom. Kochumuttom's style as evidenced in his own commentarial notes and in his translations, is simple and lucid. Kochumuttom offers his readers in unencumbered and lucid prose a number of interesting insights into Vasubandhu's thought. With regard to the translation Kochumuttom's is the more fluid and easily readable overall while remaining true to the Sanskrit. - The Vajradhatu Sun, December, 1985 Here is a good example of painstaking study and exercise in hermeneutics which might recover for us the right letter and spirit of ancient texts which have long become obfuscated if not obsolete. A stimulating and thought provoking book. - Mountain Path, Vol.21 No.IV, October, 1984. Printed Pages: 287.
