     View Summary

    <p>In chapter 1 of the Abhidharmakośabhāṣya, Vasubandhu defines impure dharmas (sāsrava-dharmas) as dharmas to which leakages (āsravas) cling (samanuśerate). The problem here is that the verb anu-śī- (Chi. suizeng 随増), which originally means "to cling to," is associated with the conception of sāsrava, although there is no etymological relation between the two. In this paper, I will examine how Vasubandhu forms the definition of sāsrava-dharmas with a focus on the contextual use of anu-śī- in Sarvāstivādin doctrine.</p><p>In Sarvāstivādin literature, the *Dharmaskandha (Chi. Fayun zu lun 法蘊足論) first uses anu-śī- to define the three realms. Then, the *Prakaraṇapāda (Chi. Pinlei zu lun 品類足論) uses anu-śī- to build a relation between the three realms and their corresponding contaminants (anuśayas) as follows: all the contaminants of the desire realm cling to the desire realm; all the contaminants of the form realm cling to the form realm; and all the contaminants of formless realm cling to the formless realm. According to Sarvāstivādin doctrine, the three realms are equal to the dharmas bound to the three realms, and these dharmas are equated with the sāsrava-dharmas. This suggests that dharmas to which contaminants cling are indirectly identical to sāsrava-dharmas.</p><p>From this investigation, I conclude that Vasubandhu forms the definition of sāsrava-dharmas by connecting directly dharmas to which contaminants cling with sāsrava-dharmas, and substituting leakages for contaminants.</p>

  • On the Meaning of the Word Sarvatraga in the Sarvatraga-anuśaya

    FUJIMOTO Yōsuke

    Journal of Indian and Buddhist Studies (Indogaku Bukkyogaku Kenkyu)   65 ( 1 ) 343 - 340  2016  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    <p>The aim of this paper is to determine the original meaning of the word sarvatraga in the sarvatraga-anuśayas in the Sarvāstivādin doctrine of the anuśayas. Although sarvatraga-anuśayas are attested in the *Vijñānakāya-śāstra (Chi. Shishen zu lun 識身足論), four different doctrinal interpretations are made concerning sarvatraga, which literally means "going/functioning everywhere," in the *Mahāvibhāṣā (Chi. Posha lun 婆沙論). Based on these interpretations, and on the position the sarvatraga-anuśayas hold within the framework of the darśanaheya-anuśayas (the contaminants to be eliminated by realizing the four noble truths), I consider the following two to be the possible original meanings of sarvatraga: "having all the sāsrava-dharmas (all the contaminated dharmas) as its object-support" and "having all the five categories of dharmas (all the dharmas from the duḥkhadarśanaheya-dharmas to the bhāvanāheya-dharmas) as its object-support." Demonstrating that the latter meaning is secondary as it generally occurs in contrast to the asarvatraga-anuśayas that have as their object-support the svanikāya-dharmas (the dharmas belonging to the same category as these anuśayas), I have concluded that the notion of sarvatraga as having all the sāsrava-dharmas as its object-support is the original meaning.</p>

     View Summary

    The objective of this research project is to take up for consideration the important scriptures and treatises that were composed in India, extract the definitions (or rules about usage) of terms used in those works, and, as well as comparing these, establish standard tranalations in both Japanese and English. The research was executed by the effective use of XML (Extensive Markup Language).
    The three years' term of this research from 2016 to 2018 has seen its outcome opened to public in five books as well as in the Website (http://www.l.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~b_kosha/start_index.html). Among those results is The Seventy-five Elements (dharma) of Sarvastivada in the Abhidharmakosabhasya and Related Works which was published in English in 2018.

  • 13世紀のチベット人巡礼僧チャク・ローツァワ・チュージェペルの伝記の基礎的研究

    2021  

     View Summary

    本年度は、13世紀のチベット人学僧チャク・ローツァワ・チュージェペル(Chag lo tsā ba Chos rje dpal, 1197–1264)の伝記(以下、『チュージェペル伝』)全17章のうち、第1章から第4章冒頭までの翻刻と暫定的な校訂テキストおよび英訳を作成し、関連テキストの調査を行なった。本研究では、ゲッティンゲン大学図書館に所蔵されているラーフラ・サンクリティヤーヤナ将来の写本のデータに加えて、近年TBRCがインターネット上で公開した写本のデータも参照することによって、これまで不鮮明であったテキストの問題のいくつかが解決でき、ゲオルグ・ルーリッヒなどによる先行訳の解釈を大幅に修正することができた。
