ASPECTS OF THE STUDY OF THE (EARLIER)INDIAN MAHAYANA

nest
aussi facile dans l'Inde

p.

As a continuation
of
his monumental
Histoire du bouddhisme indien,
published in 1958, Etienne Lamotte once envisaged writing a secondvolume to be devoted to the Indian Mahayana. This second part was,however, never to appear, although Lamotte had already published in 1954a preliminary study entitled 'Sur
la
formation du Mahayana'.! He did,however, complete several major, and very extensive, publications on theMahayana, such
as
his richly annotated translations of Sastras like Asanga's
Mahiiyiinasarrzgraha,
Vasubandhu's
Karmasiddhiprakaraf}a,
and the
Ta-
chih-tu-Iun (*Mahiiprajniipiiramitopadesa)
ascribed
to
(a) Nagiirjuna,2
as
*
This paper had its origin in an outline
of
some important topics and problems
in
thehistory
of
Mahayana which was prepared for a conference on early Mahayana Buddhismin 2001. This will explain the necessarily minimalist, and somewhat aphoristic, treatment
of
certain topics
in
this paper. A full and complete study would
of
course fill volumes andconstitute a comprehensive history
of
the subject. Needless to say, then, this paper claimsto be neither an exhaustive account
of
the topics touched on
nor
a comprehensive survey
of
all research relevant to them. The purpose
of
these lines is also not to propound fmal-much less ready-made or theory-detennined -solutions but, rather, to point up topicsand problems
in
the history
of
Mahayana, and to indicate possible approaches to theirstudy taking account
of
historical, philological, and theoretical issues. No hesitation hasbeen felt in referring,
in
a few places, to a Tibetan source or interpretation because, although
of
course not contempoary with the issues being addressed here, for certain purposes sucha source can be as valuable as the Western secondary literature.
