There are some other texts earlier than the Kosa, on which it was actually modeled, such as the Amrta-rasa, etc. They are smaller, more concise, to the point, less technical arguments. Ven Prof Dhammajoti has translated one of them, Abhidharma-avatara. http://www.hku.hk/buddhism/Publication_new.html
I was looking at the "Sarvastivada Abhidharma" by Professor Bhikkhu KL Dhammajoti. Is this a condensed version of the major points found in Pruden's Kosa?
I have a copy (on loan from the library
but nobody else I think would ever use it but me) of Analytical Study of the Abhidharmakosa
by Sukomal Chaudhuri (1983) which details and summarizes the text chapter by chapter and also provides a good introduction.
I can't seem to find a place to order this book. Do you have any recommendations?
I found this info. Although the preference seems to buy in person at their locale It does gives instruction for mail order.
