Abhidharma-Dīpa Lamp of Abhidharma

Abhidharma-dīpa. ‘Lamp of Abhidharma’, being a *Sarvāstivādin *Abhidharma text of uncertain authorship, though sometimes thought to have been composed by *Vasumitra in response to *Vasubandhu’s *Abhi-dharma-kośa. The text, comprising verse and prose commentary, survives in a unique incomplete *Sanskrit manuscript. The text is important because it confirms the identity of the author of the Abhidharma-kośa with the *Mahayana *Yogācāra scholar-*monkVasu-bandhu.” (PDoB)
