In this book an attempt has been made to expound the metaphysics of the Yogacara school of Buddhism in all its aspects and bearings. Chapters are devoted to a critical and constructive discussion of its idealistic core as well as its spiritual discipline. According to Prof. T.R.V. Murti who occupied a conspicuous place in the galaxy of Indian philosophers, the author 'has utilized nearly all the sources available on the subject and has given a faithful and persuasive account of this system of thought'.
The Yogacara Idealism was acclaimed as a unique contribution to the study of Buddhism on its first publication in 1962 and subsequently in 1975. This reprint after a lapse of ten years fills the need for the new generation of students and researchers.
