A central text of the Consciousness-Only (Yogācāra) school of Buddhism in China, this treatise by the Indian scholar-monk Vasubandhu presents a list of 100 dharmas, primary elements of our experience. The list includes elements ranging from the subconscious realms of the mind to the sense organs, and from the material world to the unconditioned.
Master Hua’s commentary provides examples and explanations of all the elements. Theory and practice merge in his commentary, as he shows how this text is not mere philosophy, but is of invaluable use on the Buddhist path, breaking through confusion and attachment.
Based on audio recordings of lectures given by Master Hua at the Buddhist Lecture Hall in San Francisco, 1970
