This book represents a compilation of lectures by Lama Govinda given to post-graduate students of Pali Buddhism, to whom a logical approach to the ethical and philosophical tenets of Buddhism is as essential as a clear definition and analysis of Buddhist psychology and its terminology.
In order to approach the ethical and philosophical tenets of Buddhism, the author not only shows what the ideas of early Buddhism were, but how they originated and why they took the form in which they are now known to us. The Buddha insisted that his doctrine should not merely be accepted in blind faith, but only after proper investigation, in which reason and experience played an equal role.
In order to achieve a clear definition of Buddhist Psychology and its terminology, the author depicts in visible form the systematic way in which Buddhism tried to explore the structure and functioning of the human mind.
