chapter  3
Refutation: Sarv-stiv-da
Pages 55

The works of the Sarvastivada Abhidharma are preserved almost exclusively in Chinese translation. There is little doubt that these works were originally written in Sanskrit, as some of their Sanskrit fragments have been found in recent decades. Geographically, these Abhidharma works were associated with two major areas: Kaqmira, where the orthodox Vaibhasika was established, and Gandhara, known to the Vaibhasikas as the West.
