The Mahynasagraha is one of the important sutra, which systematizes the Yogcra theory in the developing history of the India Vijñptimatra. It provides a specific explanation of the three nature (Sans. trisvabhva, Chin.) and builds a model to illustrate the construction relationship. Furthermore, the Mahynasagraha elucidates many thesis, such as the two neutral dependece (Sans. paratantrasvabhva, Chin.), the consciousness theory, the none-object theory, the imprint (Sans. vsan, Chin.) theory and the pure store consciousness. Nowadays, those thesis are still the main points in the Yogcra study. It is unfortunate that the Sanskrit original of the Chinese and the Tibetan translations become the main research materials nd most of the studdies focused on them. Although there is still Dunhuang manuscripts of the Mahynasagraha, the studies only deal with the individual scrolls. Therefore, the research includes macroscopic perspective in Chinese and Tibetan translations of the Mahynasagraha in Dunhuang manuscripts. According to the new studying materials of the Mahynasagraha, the Dunhuang manuscripts P.2101 and P.820 that are collected by France. The research separates Dunhuang manuscripts of the Mahynasagraha into Chinese and Tibetan versions and then distinguishes three parts by the documentary factor: the Mahynasagraha, the Mahynasagrahabhya and the commentaries. The research aims to three main goals: 1. Documentary analysis: collecting and translating of the Chinese and Tibetan Dunhuang manuscripts, collecting with the textual records() and analyzing the changing progression of the language. 2. Culture observation: The difference and similarity between the commentaries of the Mahynasagraha. 3. Philosophy critical thinking: the conversation between the researches of contemporary scholars. The research aims to illustrate the whole result of the relating Chinese and Tibetan documents to Dunhuang manuscripts of the Mahynasagraha. After that, the research compares the result with contemporary scholars in order to benefit the researchers in the future.
