Pramāṇasamuccaya by Dignāga

Cf. Hattori 1968 pp. 12-19. Since the translation of the verses is separately transmitted in the bstan 'gyur, the Pramāṇasamuccaya is bibliographically treated as a work of its own; publications are linked to it that only contain materials on the verse text. But as Hattori 1968 pp. 17f., has shown, the translation of the verses was not produced independently of that of the commentary. Therefore publications on the Pramāṇasamuccayavṛtti likewise have to be considered.
The Pramāṇasamuccaya and its auto-commentary have not yet been edited, translated and studied in full. Only the first chapter on perception has been comprehensively treated by Hattori. To the extent this was possible, we have indicated the text coverage in the individual publications.
Verse numbering follows the individual publications and is therefore not uniform, with the exception of chapter 1, numbered according to the edition of Hattori.
