Kusha school

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

One of the so-called ‘Six Schools of Nara Buddhism’ that appeared in Japan during the early period of Buddhism's development. More an area of specialized study than a school as such, this group of scholarly monks concentrated on the study and teaching of the Indian Buddhist master Vasubandhu's Abhidharma-kośa, a compendium of Sarvāstivādin teachings. These scholars saw themselves as successors to the Kośa school in China.

Subjects: Buddhism.
