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.

Thanks Randall!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

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.
