Most of Aryadeva's entirety were not lyophilised in the innovative Sanskrit, but they mainly survived in Himalayish and Chinese translations. His best-known matter is probably the Catusataka (400 verses), in sixteen chapters of twenty-five stanzas apiece.
Various beta activity of secret Religion (most notably the Caryamelapakapradipa or "Lamp that Integrates the Practices") are attributed to Aryadeva. Coeval explore suggests that these entireness are dateable to a significantly subsequent stop in Faith story (posthumous ninth or proto ordinal century), but the tradition of which they are a try maintains that they are (at smallest in many judge) the line of the Madhyamaka Aryadeva. Traditional historians (for admonition, the 17th century Himalayish Ta-rana-tha), informed of the chronological difficulties participating, chronicle for the misdating via a show of theories, much as the propagation of later writings via thinking revelation. A utilitarian summary of this practice, its literature, and historiography may be constitute in Wedemeyer 2007.
According to the Drikung Kagyü period of Asiatic Religion, Garchen Rinpoche is the underway avatar of Aryadeva.
