I wonder why they need outline in Chinese if original book is in Chinese too.

My long wish that Yogacarabhumi books are transalted completely in English. But it seem so hard task that it's not happened yet.

Delightful, and really put a smile on my face. - The comments were really intriguing too.

Quote:
This chapter by itself is in my opinion quite self-contained, but the reader would benefit even more if taken together with the other chapters in the Yogacara Bumi Sastra. With various quotes from the Agamas, it pieces together the appropriate practices and reflections needed at different stages.


:good:

I am guessing that this

Quote:
Below is the English translation of the chapter "本地分中修所成地第十二 The Twelfth Main Stage: Foundation of Actualization of Cultivation".

AKA
Quote:
瑜伽師地論科句披尋記卷第二 Yogācārabhūmi- śāstra (Topic-outline and commentary) Chapter Twenty
本地分中修所成地第十二 The Twelfth Main Stage: Stage of Actualization of Cultivation3


is equivalent to this from the Summary of the Yogācārabhūmi-śāstra 瑜伽師地論 [http://www.acmuller.net/yogacara/outlines/YBh-summary-utf8.htm]:

(12) The state of actualizing what one has practiced - bhāvanā-bhūmi 修所成地. (fascicle 20)

------

This seems to be a survey of the path as a pocket map in the middle of the encyclopaedia of the path, and distinct from the implied progression of the last three Bhumis, Stravaka, Prayekabuddha and Bodhisattava.


OH BOY WE'RE GETTING A FOOT IN THE DOOR!
