Vasubhandu :

A set of thirteen B/W notecards drawn by Robert Beer that depict some important lineage masters from the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist traditions. These notecards come with envelopes, and are machine creased so they can be coloured with fine-line pens, crayons or paint before folding. Each card has a short biography of the lineage holder or guru depicted.

Vasubhandu (Tib. dByig'-ngyen), who lived around the turn of the 5th century, was the younger brother of Asanga, and he is recognized as one of the 'Six Adornments' of Indian Mahayana Buddhism. In Kashmir he studied the teachings of Theravada Buddhism and wrote an important text know as the Abhidharmakosha. But later he was drawn to the Mahayana teachings by his brother's (Asanga) discourses. He succeeded Asanga as the abbot of Nalanda Monastery, and went on to develop the philosophy of the Cittamatra School
