ME6206 - Special topics in Buddhist studies I: Theravada Abhidhamma

1st Semester, Academic Year 2009/2010 (July 06 – November 07, 2009)

Prof. Dr. Y. Karunadasa

The prime focus of the course will be on the dhamma-theory, the cornerstone of the Abhidhamma philosophy. The course will introduce students to the teachings of the Abhidhamma on levels of reality and degrees of truth, analysis of mind and matter, theory of ognition, instantaneous being, and conditional relations. The course will be concluded with-an introduction to the expository methodology of the Abhidhamma.

24 downloadable video files of not very good quality, occasional parts with no audio and the site seemed to be down sometimes. Prof always repeats the key definitions and concepts. Maybe I'll make mp3's for listening.

    ...and this thought arose in the mind of the Blessed One:
    “Who lives without reverence lives miserably.”

"Bhikkhus, possessing five factors, speech is well spoken, not badly spoken; it is blameless and beyond reproach by the wise. What five? It is spoken at the proper time; what is said is true; it is spoken gently; what is said is beneficial; it is spoken with a mind of loving-kindness. Possessing these five factors, speech is well spoken, not badly spoken; it is blameless and beyond reproach by the wise."

Thanks Randall!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Thanks for these great resources!

One of the links in the original post is now dead ("Abhidhamma Papers - Published by the Samatha Trust")

It looks like the correct URL is now different:

http://www.samatha.org/texts/publications/texts/texts

On that page you can find (the first link) the following PDF, which I think is what the link in the original post was supposed to lead to:

Process of Consciousness and Matter by Rewata Dhamma (who helped with Bhikkhu Bodhi on the CMA)
This book is intended for all serious students of the Abhidhamma. It serves as a supplement to Bhikkhu Bhodhi's book A Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma, and treats various important aspects in more detail - in particular the process of consciousness and matter.




The Buddhist Philosophy of Relations by Ledi Sayadaw
The Paṭṭhānuddesa Dīpanī is Ledi Sayādaw’s treatment of one of the most difficult and complex subjects of Theravada Buddhist thought—the philosophy of conditional relations. The Paṭṭhāna, the seventh and last book of the Abhidhamma Piṭaka, works out the system of relations in six large volumes. In the present slim volume the Venerable Ledi Sayādaw has extracted the essential principles underlying this vast system and explained them concisely but comprehensively, with lucid illustrations for the Paṭṭhāna’s twenty-four conditional relations





Aids to the Abhidhamma Philosophy by Dr. C.B. Dharmasena
The scope of this article is limited and precise. As an aid to the study of the Abhidhamma philosophy three charts are presented and how they may be used with maximum benefit is explained...It is important to realise at the very outset that all these charts are meant to be used along with the study of The Manual of Abhidhamma, already mentioned; and all I propose to do in this article is to state as briefly as possible how these charts may be used with maximum profit in
such a study.

An Introduction to Abhidhamma by Silananda Brahmachari (not to be confused with Ven. U Silananda of Burma)
...the present work is neither a translation of Abhidhammattha Sangaha, nor an annotation on it. It is a humble effort to present in the following pages the outlines of Abhidhamma in the form of simple essays.



The Significance of Dependent Ogination by Nyayatiloka Mahathera (reformatted, more easily readable and printable in booklet form, original from BPS)
Dependent Origination serves to elucidate the second and third Noble Truth regarding the Origin and Extinction of Suffering, by explaining them from their very foundations upwards, and giving them a definite philosophical form... Hence, this short essay, being entirely based on authentic Pali texts and Commentaries, reflects the true position of Theravāda Buddhism in its canonical sources and in its well-tested exegetical works. For the sake of brevity, often a terse diction has been adopted in this treatise. But a careful study and a growing familiarity with the true significance of the terms here employed, will finally make the subject matter quite intelligible and self-evident.




Sabbasava Sutta, Exegesis based on Commentary by Acharya Buddharakkhita (an excerpt from his book "Mind,Overcoming its Cankers")
"Spiritual deliverance," says the Buddhaa, "is attained by the destruction of the mental cankers." Indeed, the Arahat is referred to as khinasava, the canker freed one. A seeker of Truth, therefore, one should know what these cankers are, and what he should do to rid himself of them. The answer lies in the Sabbasava Sutta, wherein the Enlightened One unfolds a methodology which in its application is totally effective.
"Bhikkhus, possessing five factors, speech is well spoken, not badly spoken; it is blameless and beyond reproach by the wise. What five? It is spoken at the proper time; what is said is true; it is spoken gently; what is said is beneficial; it is spoken with a mind of loving-kindness. Possessing these five factors, speech is well spoken, not badly spoken; it is blameless and beyond reproach by the wise."
