Dharma Analysis Treasury school ［倶舎宗］ (Chin Chü-she-tsung; Kusha-shū): A school based on The Dharma Analysis Treasury of Vasubandhu. This work was translated into Chinese, once by Paramārtha in 564 and again by Hsüan-tsang in 651. After Paramārtha completed his translation, the Dharma Analysis Treasury school, which was based on this treatise, came into being in China. It enjoyed a brief existence during the T’ang dynasty (618–907). The Dharma Analysis Treasury system was brought to Japan along with the Dharma Characteristics (Chin Fa-hsiang; Hossō) school and was widely studied during the Nara period (710–794). The Dharma Analysis Treasury school was counted as one of the six schools of Nara, but it never became fully independent. Its doctrine teaches that the self has no independent existence but the dharmas are real, and that past, present, and future have independent existences. It also classifies all things and phenomena into seventy-five dharmas in five categories. See also Dharma Analysis Treasury, The.
