This course is designed to help students develop their skills in reading Buddhist texts in Sanskrit, Tibetan, and Chinese. Parallel texts that exist in Sanskrit as well as in Tibetan and Chinese translations will be chosen. The course package will include selection from at least one Yogacara text, while other Buddhist text traditions will also be represented in the reading materials. Prerequisite: The minimum prerequisite for the course is reading knowledge of at least one of the three languages, although students who know more than one language will also profit from the study of translation equivalents and strategies.
