Towards  a Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra translation project?


Is there a Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra translation project? Dan Lusthaus wrote me that the 17-bhūmi sequence of the Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra would be a good framework for pursuit of the Yogācāra.


What I have found is the summary of the entire Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra by Dan Lusthaus and Charles Muller,


And in the the 1st of 5 parts of the Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra, the Mahabhūmi, which lists the 17 bhūmis contents, we have these bhūmis spoken for:


•   [b](bhūmi 8)[/b]) The stage with mind - sacittaka-bhūmi 心地. (fascicle 13) in Wayman, A., 2002. Buddhist Insight G. Elder, ed., Motilal Banarsidass Pub.


•   [b](bhūmi 9)[/b]) The stage without mind - acittaka-bhūmi 無心地. (fascicle 13) in Wayman, A., 2002. Buddhist Insight G. Elder, ed., Motilal Banarsidass Pub.,


•  [b] (bhūmi 14)[/b]),  (anon compilation),   (Florin Deleanu translator), 2006. The Chapter on the Mundane Path (Laukikamiirga) in the Sriivakabhumi, dissertation, STUDIA PHILOLOGICA BUDDHICA Monograph Series XXa, Tokyo The International Institute for Buddhist Studies of The International College for Postgraduate Buddhist Studies,


•   [b](bhūmi 15[/b]), the fourth chapter of the Bodhisattva bhūmi, is found in Willis, J.D., 1979.On Knowing Reality: The Tattvartha Chapter of Asaṅga’s Bodhisattvabhūmi, Columbia University Press,


and the curious information that the entire internal sequence of the Bodhisattva bhūmi is accounted for section by section but not reiteration of section contents in Aryasanga, M./, 2004. Universal Vehicle Discourse Literature (Mahayanasutralamkara), American Institute of Buddhist Studies.

And parts of the later 4 Parts of the Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra are found in Schmithausen, L., 1987. Ālāyavijñāna: On the origin and the early development of a central concept of Yogācāra philosophy, International Institute for Buddhist Studies, 1987


and its critique and furtherance in 


Buescher, H., 2008. The Inception of Yogācāra-Vijñānavada, Austrian Academy of Sciences.

It is a challenge is to find the scattered leaves and place them in order.


[so the Yogācāra can breath in their own atmosphere]
