Ornament of Mahayana Sutras, The
[大乗荘厳経論] (Skt Mahayana-sutralamkara; Chin Ta-ch’eng-chuang-yen-ching-lun; Jpn Daijo-shogon-kyo-ron )

    A commentary on the Consciousness-Only Doctrine translated into Chinese by the Indian Monk Prabhakaramitra, who went to China in 626. This work consists of verse and a prose commentary on it. The verse is attributed to Maitreya (c. 270-350 or 350-430), the founder of the Consciousness-Only School, and the prose commentary to Vasubandhu who lived around the fourth or fifth century. One account attributes The Ornament of Mahayana Sutras to Asanga, a Disciple of Maitreya. The Sanskrit text and a Tibetan translation are also extant.
