CIENCES
investigate the basic principles and laws of natureto explain the physical phenomena that have been occurring foraeons. But they cannot probe the nature of the mind and they fail toexplain the mental phenomena that have enormous influence onphysical phenomena.Lord Buddha, with His power of omniscience, knew the truenature of the mind and correctly described the causal relations thatgovern mind and matter and thus can explain all psycho-physicalphenomena in the world.His ultimate teaching, known as
 Abhidhamma
, describes indetail the natures of the ultimate realities that really exist in nature but are unknown to scientists. His method of verification is superiorto scientific methods which depend on instruments. He used Hisdivine-eye to penetrate the coverings that hide the true nature of allthings. He also taught others how to develop concentration andhow to observe with their mind-eyes the true nature of all thingsand finally the four Noble Truths which can enlighten one to achieveone’s liberation from all miseries for ever!So
 Abhidhamma
may be regarded as Mental Science or UltimateScience—the science of the ultimate truths.

 Abhidhamma
which systematically describes the intrinsic natures of the ultimate comprising mind, matter and permanent peace(
Nibbàna
).

If one thinks, speaks or acts with an evil mind, misery follows him justas the wheel follows the hoofs of the ox that draws the cart.If one thinks, speaks or acts with a pure mind, happiness follows himlike his shadow that never leaves him
