Abstract

Prof. Hiromi Yoshimura says that <i>vijñapti</i> in the <i>Madhyantavibhaga</i> (=MV) I. 3 known through the preaching of the “four manifestations” is used with a meaning different from that found in the <i>Mahayanasamgraha, Vimsatika</i>, and <i>Trimsika</i>. This is due to the fact that <i>vijñapti</i> in MV I. 3 does not convey a mediating subject or object of cognition. However, it is said that <i>alayavijñana</i> possesses cognition (=<i>vijñapti</i>) in both directions, inside and outside, according to a passage which describes the “proof of the existence of <i>alayavijñana</i>” in the <i>Viniscayasamgrahani</i> of the <i>Yogacarabhumi</i>. Taking the ideological influence of the <i>Viniscayasamgrahani</i> into account, one may suppose that the author of the MV I. 3 expressed “<i>bhajana-vijñapti</i> and <i>asraya-vijñapti</i>” which originally meant direct cognition of <i>alayavijñana</i> through the contracted expressions of “<i>artha</i> and <i>sattva</i>”. In that case, <i>asraya-vijñapti</i> would correspond to individual existence, while <i>bhajana-vijñapti</i> would correspond to the surrounding world, meaning that between the two, the relation of the subject and object of cognition is confirmed. As a result of the above-mentioned examination, in MV I. 3, “<i>vijñapti</i> extending over a subject and object of cognition” is expressed through words different from <i>vijñapti</i>.
