Buddhist Caryā-System: As Reflected in Atiśa Dipankara’s Caryā sangraha-Pradīpa

Author(s): Dr. Banamali Biswal

Abstract: The paper deals with the Buddhist Caryā-System in general and that of Atiśa Dipaṅkara in particular. The paper is mainly based on the thoughts available in his Caryāsaṅgraha-pradīpa. Atiśa wrote, translated and edited more than two hundred books, which helped in spreading Buddhism in Tibet. Caryāsaṅgraha-pradīpa is one of them containing twenty two verses and another pāda (ऩाद). The work keeps record of the complete dina-caryā (ददनचमा) of a Buddhist sādhaka (साधक) starting from early morning till the late night where, emphasis has been given to all such points which help in the betterment of the bodhisattva-caryā (फोधधसत्तत्तवचमा). The work teaches all such purified caryās guiding a sādhaka what exactly to be performed by him and what not to be performed. The present paper aims to briefly analyze the Buddhist caryās discussed in the present text.)
