Compendium of Logic (Skt. Pramāṇa-samuccaya; Wyl. tshad ma kun las btus pa) by Dignaga — one of the greatest works on Buddhist logic, in which Dignaga gave a new definition of "perception": a knowledge that is free from all conceptual constructions, including name and class concepts.

Dignaga's tradition is further developed in the 7th century by Dharmakirti.

This text is considered as representative of the Sautrantika tenet system.
