cally, the fourth book of his Mândùkya Kàrikà is believed to be a predominantly Buddhist composition. This position usually maintains that the other three books, although influenced by Buddhist idealism, follow the Upanisadic-Advaita tradition.8 While the nuances of these three positions vary, basically each position affirms the notion that. Yogacara has often been saddled with the accusation of “idealism.” Commentators and scholars have interpreted Yogacara’s concern for the workings of consciousness and cognition as a belief in the unreality of the external world, produced by the mind or even some overarching monistic consciousness.

THE YOGACARA IDEALISM" ALEX WAYMAN A GENERAL SURVEY of idealism in India has already been made by Raju,2 but some other authors do not concede the validity of his inclusion of so many schools of Indian philosophy as well as leading philosophers of India in this philosophical category.

The first of these three books, Agok Kumar Chatterjee’s THE YOGACARA IDEALISM, made no attempt to reinterpret critically the groundwork laid by Professor Suzuki’s initial interpretation of the school as an "absolute idealistic monism." In three subsequent books, however, can be said to represent major steps away from this traditional.   The book is nothing short of flawlessly thorough in every detail. Honestly, I am shocked that any single human being could know so much about one subject. It's beyond impressive. So if Yogacara isn't a form of idealism, what exactly is it? If you've ever read a Yogacara or hybrid-Yogacara text like the Lankavatara Sutra, you'll remember there.

In this context, we can think of vijnana is a reaction that has one of the six faculties (eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind) as its basis and one of the six corresponding phenomena (visible object, sound, smell taste, tangible object, though) as its object.
