CONTENTS:- I. The Background of the Theravada Philosophy. II. The Philosophy in the Nikayas or the Dhamma of the Buddhism Trinity. III. The Abhidhamma-A General Description. IV. The Abhidhamma-Its Main Divisions of the Citta, Cetasika and Rupa. V. The Nibbana of the Theravada and the Brahman of the Vedanta. VI. The Arhatship and the Bodhisatta Ideals.
In this book an attempt is made to represent the Theravada in its faithful form. This work is purely altruistic. It is for the reader and for the scholar to justify how far this position is distensible in the course of the lecturer in this book. In India, Pali Abhidhamma is as yet a scaled book and hence we have done a splendid work in the cause of knowledge and philosophy.
