Abhidharma-samuccaya
 (Sanskrit; Tibetan Wylie: mngon pa kun btus; English: Compendium of Abhidharma) is a Buddhist text composed by Asanga.

Abhidharma-samuccaya is a complete and systematic account of the Abhidharma.

According to Traleg Rinpoche, the Abhidharma-samuccaya is one of Asanga's most essential texts and also one of the most {{Wiki|psychologically]] oriented.

It provides a framework, as well as a general pattern, as to how a practitioner is to follow the path, develop oneself and finally attain Buddhahood.

It presents the path according to the Yogachara school Mahayana Buddhism.



Mental factors


Main article: Mental factors (Buddhism)

The second chapter of this text enumerates fifty-one mental factors (Sanskrit: caitasika), divided into the following categories:

 
    five ever-functioning factors (kun-’gro lnga, 遍行心所, Korean: 변행심소),
    five ascertaining (object-determining) ones (yul-nges lnga, 別境心所, Korean: 별경심소),
    eleven virtuous ( or constructive) emotions (dge-ba bcu-gcig, 善心所, Korean: 선심소),
    six root disturbing emotions and attitudes (rtsa-nyon drug, 煩惱心所, Korean: 번뇌심소),
    twenty auxiliary disturbing emotions (nye-nyon nyi-shu, 隨煩惱心所, Korean: 수번뇌심소),
    four changeable factors (gzhan-‘gyur bzhi, 不定心所, Korean: 부정심소).

Contemporary scholarly analysis

Contemporary scholar Achim Bayer asserts that the thought of different sections of the Abhidharma-samuccaya might be heterogenous.

For example, the important term ālayavijñāna appears not more than six times, with all six occurrences in the Lakṣaṇasamuccaya section, i.e. within in the first third of the work.
