This volume deals with the Sarvastivada school of Buddhism, the major philosophical school of Hinayana. First a general outline is given of the school's origin in the (Indian) Buddhist synods. Part one ends with a general survey of Sarvastivada Literature. In the actual corpus the philosophical texts of Sarvastivada are treated in detail. The organization of the work follows the geographical spread of Sarvastivada. In these Parts special emphasis is laid on the Central Asian history of the school, as well as on how the school eventually reached China ('Abhidharma and Kosa Schools'). Treatment is based on the Chinese versions of the major works of the school (Sutrapitaka, Abhidarmapitaka and Vinayapitaka). All in all, this major work throws a new light on the relationship between Sarvastivada and Mulasarvastivada and provides an innovative view on the Darsttantika and Sautrantika Schools.
