  Pudgalavada Buddhist Philosophy [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The Pudgalavada was a group of five of the Early Schools of Buddhism.
The Pudgalavada was a group of five of the Early Schools of Buddhism, distinguished from the other schools by their doctrine of the reality of the self.
As a theory of the self, the Pudgalavada was naturally shaped and so in some measure limited by the concerns of Buddhism; the Pudgalavadins were interested in the nature of selfhood only to the extent that it had a bearing on the problem of suffering.

In this book an attempt is made to reconstruct the Pudgalavada Buddhist theory of persons as it is represented in the Chinese translations of the Sammitiyanikaya Sastra (Sanmidibu lun) and the Tridharmakhandaka (Sanfadu lun) and in later Buddhist works in which the doctrines of the Pudgalavadins are summarized and criticized.

  E-sangha, Buddhist Forum and Buddhism Forum -> Pudgalavada
In the fulness of Priestley’s argument, however, we find that the Pudgalavada were equally as “orthodox” as their contemporaries, in that they embraced the canonical purpose and function of the Buddha’s teaching (of no-Self) while differing as to how to interpret its subject (the Self as such).
Contentions such as these would not have been enough to divide the Pudgalavada from their rival schools for a thousand years; but when these diverging views of the self are extended to matters lying at the very basis of ethics, they soon seem irreconcilable.
The conviction that set the Pudgalavada apart from their contemporaries was that they alone could adequately account for this ethical difference.

 Egoism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The egoist' denial of things above them are anathema to religions that require subservience to God or gods, or political philosphies that require subordination to state, class, or caste.
Debates of this kind span such religions as Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism (see Atman, Anatman and Pudgalavada).
Most religions hold that ethical egoism is the product of a lack of genuine spirituality and shows an individual's submersion in materialism or greed.

 Journal of Academic Indology - Pudgalavada Philosophy: Celebrating the work of Prof. Priestley
To mark the occasion of his retirement, to celebrate his long career, and to repay some small part of a debt of gratitude that I (as so many others) owe him as a student, I thought to write a brief article praising his foremost publication, Pudgalavada Buddhism, and discussing some of the philosophical themes therein.
Priestley’s 1999 Pudgalavada Buddhism* is a landmark work in Buddhist scholarship, and an exceptional example as to how clear thinking can resolve the ambiguities of the sutras.
In the case of Pudgalavada Buddhism, history has left us a jigsaw puzzle of short, disjointed sources that makes the study of (e.g.) Pre-Socratic philosophies seem simple by comparison.

Among other early proponents of reincarnation in Buddhist thought is Vatsiputriya,11 a brahmin who originally belonged to the Sthavira sect.
Only 250 years after Buddha, this monk founded the Pudgalavada sect, which was specifically designed to battle the growing conception of Buddhism as a tradition that rejected the doctrine of rebirth.
Vatsiputriya faced intense opposition, and his group of stalwart Buddhist monks were renounced as heterodox, giving way to more and more groups who eschewed the doctrine of rebirth.

The kind of Buddhism which went to China comes from the Gandharan cultural area, certainly until the time of Kumarajiva (ca.400 CE).
As for doctrinal affiliation, most literature may be called sarvastivada (different kinds of sautrantikas; non-vaibhasika), mahasamghika, pudgalavada, dharmaguptaka.
The early use of such terms as yogacara, dhyana, etc., presents a picture which clearly shows Kasmira hardly had any influence during the period of ancient and old translations.
