Description About the author Contents
The Inner Science of Buddhist Practice contains translations of texts by two historically important Indian Buddhist scholars: (1) Vasubandhu's Summary of the Five Heaps and (2) Sthiramati's commentary on Vasubandhu's root text. The subject matter is the traditional Buddhist analysis of ordinary experience. These two works provide rich resources for a bridge connecting classical Buddhist and Western interpretations for the study of the psychology of spiritual development.

Engle's lengthy introduction explores how the material contained in the two translations can improve practice of the Tibetan teaching system known as Lamrim, or "Stages of the Path." Each of the three divisions of the Lamrim teaching is examined in an effort to demonstrate how an understanding of such doctrines as the five "heaps," or experiential constituents, can bring a deeper conviction regarding that portion of the instruction.
