I don't know exactly ....

By name, only the Abhidharma-samuccaya comes to mind. Or do you refer to the northern Sarvastivada / Vaibhasika etc. Abhidharma literature, eg. the Kosa?


I do mean Vasubandhu's Abhidharmakosa + Asanga and other Mahayana writers detailing Buddhist "psychology", working of phenomena, etc.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
