Description Contents
No one would deny that the Abhidhamma is a difficult subject to study, for it is the quintessence of the Buddhas teachings, and requires deep insight and understanding into the fundamental principles of Buddhism.  I have, however, always felt that the subject could be made simple.  I was very glad, therefore, surprised indeed, to find that with deep insight, Mr. Baptist had actually succeeded in presenting the main elements of the Abhidhamma in the language of the man-in-the-street.  Anyone with average intelligence should be able to profit by this book considerably.  To my knowledge, no book has yet appeared on so deep a subject in so simple a language.  Mr. Baptist is to be congratulated on his achievement.  Nay, I would go further and suggest that this book should now be translated into Sinhalese that it may reach a wider circle of students, and be made the basis of future Abhidhamma studies to beginners.
