This book is not a synopsis of the Abhidhamma which, in itself, comprises seven volumes of the
Pali Canon. Here, some aspects of the Abhidhamma have been related to practice. If this little
book helps the reader to appreciate that the teachings of the Enlightened One are never mere
theories but always stand to reason and can be verified in the crucible of his or her experience,
then its purpose will have been served.

The writer wishes to place on record:

1)

The inspiration gained from Dhamma discussions with the Venerable D. Piyananada
Mahāthera and the Venerable H. Gunaratana Mahāthera, respectively the former and
present chief incumbents of the Washington Buddhist Vihāra in the U.S.A.

2)

The deepest gratitude to the Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi of the same Vihāra who, with
great patience and compassion, gave instruction and guidance to get the facts straight
and to present them in a readable style.

3)

Grateful thanks to Mrs. Norma Cooke who, with devotion to the Dhamma, typed the
manuscript.
