Thirty-Stanza Treatise on the Consciousness-Only Doctrine, The
唯識三十論頌 (Skt Trimshika-vijnaptimatrata-siddhi; Chin Wei-shih-san-shih-lun-sung; Jpn Yuishiki-sanju-ron-ju )
A short work by Vasubandhu (thought to have lived in the fourth or fifth century) setting forth the essentials of the Consciousness-Only doctrine and translated into Chinese in the mid-seventh century by Hsüan-tsang. It is thought to be the last of Vasubandhu's writings and is one of the principal texts of the Dharma Characteristics (Chin Fa-hsiang; Jpn Hosso) school. Dharmapala and nine other scholars of the Consciousness-Only school wrote commentaries on this work, which were later compiled as The Treatise on the Establishment of the Consciousness-Only Doctrine.
