The following pages comprise a translation of a section of the 維摩詰經 (VimalakIrti-nirdesa satra; Taisho Issaikyo, 475; Nanjio, 146), together with the joint commentary of Seng Chao () and Kumarjiva, to which a number of interpretative and exegetical notes have been added. The texts used have been those published in the Pu- haush To 'ung Shu edition. This is the version translated by KumarjIva from the Sanskrit, probably somewhere between A.D. 401 and 413. The commentator Seng Ch'ao was his con- temporary and student, dying a year later than his teacher in 414.
