Treatise on the Ten Stages Sutra, The ［十地経論］ (Chin Shih-ti-ching-lun; Jūji-kyō-ron): A work by Vasubandhu, translated into Chinese in the sixth century by Bodhiruchi and Ratnamati. It is a commentary on the Ten Stages Sutra, which is identical with the “Ten Stages” chapter of the Flower Garland Sutra. The ten stages are the stages of the bodhisattva practice leading to enlightenment. The Treatise on the Ten Stages Sutra (Ti-lun) school in China was based on this work. The work was also valued by the Flower Garland (Hua-yen) school.
