His early (extant) works were:
- The Abhidharmakoša-marma-pradīpa - a condensed summary of Vasubandhu's seminal work
- A brief summary of the Aṣṭa-sāhasrika-prajñā-pāramitā-sūtra
His remaining works were all pertaining to logic:
- Pramāṇa-samuccaya, which was a condensation of all these works
His reputation as unequalled in debate was cemented through his celebrated victory over the bramhin named Sudurjaya at Nālandā monastery.
Among his disciples was Išvarasena, who later became the teacher of Dharmakīrti.
