Abhidhamma Studies is one of those books that you can reread every few years to find new depth.

In this work Nyanaponika Thera displays great insight into the many layers  of knowledge that can be found within the first beneficial citta mentioned in the Abhidhamma Piṭaka.

And if you don’t want to read the whole work, the introduction alone is well worth reading.

In the introduction, Nyanaponika Thera writes how the Abhidhamma represents the core of Buddhist philosophy through its analysis and synthesis, namely that reality consists of separate impermanent moments in which there is no underlying self, no ‘I’ (anattā), while there is a cause-effect relationship between these moments that, for example, make meditation and moral behaviour necessary for liberation.

We explain this further in our text A Short Introduction to Abhidhamma.

Over Buddho

Avatar Sinds 2017 werken we eraan om mensen de kans te geven om via het internet kennis te maken met samatha-meditatie op buddho, een meditatiesysteem dat ons veel goeds heeft gebracht. Naast het verspreiden van dit meditatiesysteem hopen we een waardevolle bijdrage te leveren aan de kennis over het boeddhisme en meditatie in Nederland. Hiervoor schrijven en vertalen we regelmatig teksten en plaatsen we andere inhoud die we van hoge kwaliteit achten of die direct gerelateerd is aan onze leraar Ahba.
