Arya Vimuktisena

Arya Vimuktisena (Skt. Ārya Vimuktisena, Tib. འཕགས་པ་རྣམ་གྲོལ་སྡེ་, Pakpa Namdroldé; Wyl. ‘phags pa rnam grol sde) (6th C.) is the author of the earliest commentary on the Abhisamayalankara, which relates it to the text of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra in Twenty-five Thousand Lines.

Vasubandhu had four great disciples who more learned in certain topics than himself.

Of these, Arya Vimuktisena was more learned on the topic of the prajnaparamita.

Vimuktisena was the nephew of the great master Buddhadasa.

He reached the bodhisattva level of Perfect Joy and having received instructions on the prajnaparamita directly from the Buddha, composed his great commentary. His foremost student was Bhadanta Vimuktisena.
