The ‘Thirty Verses on Consciousness Only’ (Triṃśikā-kārikā) is an important text of the Yogacara school of Buddhist philosophy by the 4th/5th century Indian scholar Vasubandhu.  The Yogacara school underpins the Lankavatara Sutra and early Ch’an teachings in China.

I find the Yogacara way of looking at the mind and practice to be helpful so have collected a few different translations of this text for my own personal study and thought to post them here in case anyone else might find them similarly useful.

Stephen Anacker translation
Ben Connelly translation
Lapis Lazuli translation
Sāgaramati translation

As far as commentaries on the text go, I have been using the following:
