Twenty-Stanza Treatise on the Consciousness-Only Doctrine, The
唯識二十論 (Skt Vimshatika-vijnaptimatrata-siddhi; Chin Wei-shih-erh-shih-lun; Jpn Yuishiki-niju-ron )


    A short work by Vasubandhu, translated into Chinese in 661 by Hsüan-tsang. It criticizes the erroneous views of non-Buddhist and Hinayana teachings and asserts the validity of the Consciousness-Only doctrine. Two other Chinese translations under different titles were


produced in the sixth century by Paramartha and by Prajnaruchi. The Twenty-Stanza Treatise on the Consciousness-Only Doctrine is one of the principal texts of the Dharma Characteristics (Chin Fa-hsiang; Jpn Hosso) school.
