Abhidhamma A Psychology For Awakening

by Peter Carlson on September 9, 2016

During this talk, Peter described the Abhidhamma, the Buddhist approach to psychology.  A distinction was made between the term cetasika, which is a category where memories are “stored” and sankhara, the content of the stored memory.  This analysis was followed with a lively discussion period.

The next talk will begin more in-depth exploration of the cetasika categories, leading to ways to understand how Abhidhamma can foster deeper understanding of the awakening process.

Here are the notes for this talk: abhidhamma-cetasikas
