Description About the author Contents
The Abhidhamma, the third great division of early Buddhist teaching, expounds a revolutionary system of philosophical psychology rooted in the twin Buddhist insights of selflessness and dependent origination. In keeping with the liberative thrust of early Buddhism this system organizes the entire spectrum of human consciousness. It maps out with remarkable rigor and precision, the inner landscape of the mind to be crossed through the practical work of Buddhist meditation. In this groundbreaking book Venerable Nyanaponika Thera penetrates the formidable face of the Abhidhamma and makes its principles intelligible to the thoughtful reader of today. Basing his approach on the detailed list of mental factors that the Abhidhamma uses as a guide to psychological analysis he launches into bold explorations of the multiple dimensions of conditionality the nature of consciousness the temporality of experience and the psychological springs of spiritual transformation. Innovative and rich in insights this book does not merely open up new avenues in the academic study of early Buddhism-it also demonstrates the continuing relevance of Buddhist thought to our most astute contemporary efforts to understand the elusive yet intimate nature of the mind.
