The Psycho-Ethical Aspects of Abhidhamma brings the essence of Buddhist psychology, called Abhidhamma, to the Western world using the related portions of the Pali Buddhist literature. Rina Sircar utilizes parables, stories, and concepts that are current to Western thought to emphasize and clarify the understanding of the value and efficacy of the Buddha's teaching as an introduction to those interested in Abhidhamma. He presents concepts related to the main ideas of Western psychology, such as personality, which relates closely to the Buddhist definition of "self." Buddhism calls any static, unchanging definition of self an illusion and deception that leads to fear and pain. Rather, the self is understood as mentality and materiality that can be validated through the meditation practice on the thirty-two parts of the body that can lead to a direct experience of the self and can even heal illnesses. The author describes how this spiritual process leads to the understanding of "Who am I?" and "What am I?" Its goal is to perfect the constantly changing person into the "arahat," as the wheel of existence turns into the wheel of truth, by following a path of purification and deliverance.

This modern translation of the Abhidhammattha Sangaha (Manual of Abhidhamma) offers an introduction to Buddhism's fundamental philosophical psychology. Originally written in the 11th or 12th century, the Sangaha has served as the key to wisdom held in the Abhidhamma. Concisely surveyed are Abhidhamma's central themes, including states of consciousness and mental factors, the functions and processes of the mind, the material world, dependent arising, and the methods and stages of meditation. This presents an exact translation of the Sangaha alongside the original Pali text. A detailed, explanatory guide with more than 40 charts and tables lead readers through the complexities of Adhidhamma. This replaces 9552401038.

Long before people in the West started to study the workings of the human mind, Buddhism was trying to understand body and mind through introspection and meditation. This knowledge has grown to be a very thorough and detailed classification and analysis of mental and physical phenomena. This refined study is known as the Abhidhamma (literally: ‘Higher Teachings’). In Southeast Asia students normally spend more than seven years studying these teachings. Frits Koster has lived as a Buddhist monk in Thailand and Burma, where he had the privilege to study parts of the Abhidhamma. In The Web of Buddhist Wisdom he explains important themes such as consciousness, mental concomitants, physicality and the experience of Enlightenment in a clear and accessible way. In addition, he addresses the law of kamma, the process of dying and rebirth, the four Noble Truths and the value of the Abhidhamma. The Web of Buddhist Wisdom, which is illustrated with drawings by Fop Smit, offers a rich and accessible guide for anyone who is interested in the working of the human mind. It offers a clear and simple acquaintance with the world of the Abhidhamma and an old yet very accurate mirror of our existence.
