Vasubhadra (1300-1220 BCE) was the Buddhist philosopher of Saketa or Ayodhya. He did not like the protectionist approach of Katyayaniputra. Ashvaghosa I originally belonged to Saketa and he contributed a lot to the Vibhasha school of Kashmir. Vasubhadra wanted to learn Vaibhashika philosophy of Kashmir and bring back the knowledge of Vibhasha to Saketa.
