Lamotte's Mahayanasamgraha translation

Postby Huifeng » Thu Nov 21, 2013 5:02 am

Hi all,

Quick question:

Which base text was Lamotte's Mahayanasamgraha translation into French based on?

Was it the Tibetan, or Xuanzang's?

Checking out various sources, there seems to be some discrepancies in the explanations...

Hi Venerable,

Lamotte's La somme du Grand Véhicule d'Asanga has 2 volumes - the first volume is the Chinese and Tibetan translation, the 2nd volume is the French translation of the Tibetan critical text, together with parts of Vasubhandu's Mahayanasamgrahabhasya and Asvabhava's Mahayanasamgrahopanibandhana.

So the basic text of the French translation is from the Tibetan. I understand there are cross references to the Taisho version.
When I set out to lead humanity along my Golden Path I promised a lesson their bones would remember. I know a profound pattern humans deny with words even while their actions affirm it. They say they seek security and quiet, conditions they call peace. Even as they speak, they create seeds of turmoil and violence.

Wouldn't happen to have digital versions (scans, etc.) of either of these would you?
I have Ani Migme Chodron's English of Vol. II already.

Oh - no, unfortunately I don't. I will keep an eye out for it and let you know when I come into possession of it.
