Mahāyāna-saṃgraha (The Mahāyāna Compendium, Traditional Chinese 攝大乘論) is a key work of the Yogācāra school of Buddhist philosophy, attributed to Asanga. It introduces various Yogacārā concepts such as the ālaya-vijñāna, the three natures (tri-svabhāva), the fivefold path (pañca-mārga), and the fruits of enlightenment. Although no Sanskrit original has been found, the work survives in Tibetan and Chinese translations, together with several important commentaries.
