"The Treatise on the Elucidation of the Knowable" by the Tibetan master 'Phags-pa was composed in 1278 as a "manual of Buddhism" for crown prince Zhenjin, second son of the Mongol emperor Qubilai. "The Cycle of the Formation of the Schismatic Doctrines" is based on Xuanzang's seventh-century Chinese translation ("Yibuzonglunlun") of the "Samayabhedoparacanacakra", an essay by the first-century scholar-monk Vasumitra on the various schismatic doctrines that began to arise soon after the Buddha's lifetime. This work presents two titles in one volume. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
