Tashi delek,

See here, that you are dealing with a topic from / attributed to Vasubandhu.
He is also wellknown to me as the brother of Asangha who came in contact with Buddha Maitreya.

I have so a question:

- Maybe could you help me to find the kosmological interpretations of Vasubandhu and maybe is it also explainable why his vision differs greatly from the Vajrayana opinion.

It would not clear at all where his Kosmological View does stem from........

Maybe you know more?

Thanks in advance for your attention and sorry to be :offtopic:

Chapter three of the Abhidharmakoshabhasyam.

It doesn't really. Kalacakra cosmology is unique -- but otherwise the model of the Meru cosmology used in Vasubandhu's presentation as the defacto cosmology used in Indian and Tibetan Vajrayāna accounts.

The origin of Vasubandhu's cosmology is the the Sarvastivada school.

Related question that Malcolm is particularly well positioned to address:

in the volume Heart Drops of Dharmakaya, it's claimed that Vasubhandu's cosmology shares a common origin with Bonpo teachings. Is this a plausible claim? If so, does it contradict the claim that it derives from the Sarvastivada school? Or does it follow that the Bonpo tradition may share a common origin with the Sarvastivada school also?
