The Abhidharma-kosa was translated into Chinese by PARAMARTHA (563–567) and again by XUAN ZANG (651–654). It became the foundation of the Zhushe or Kosa School of early Chinese Buddhism developed by Xuan Zang’s disciples.

The importance of the Abhidharma-kosa was made known to modern scholarship after its translation into French by Louis de La Vallée Poussin, between 1923 and 1931.
