Mind and Mental Factors in Early Buddhist Psychology

Summary of the Book

Mind is a problematic concept, sundry attempts have already been made from different viewpoints for a better understanding of the concept. However, in this book an endeavour was made to deal with the problem from Buddhist point of view. In this deliberation attempt was made not to show how Mind functions, rather an effort has been made to reveal what Mind is. Of course, Mind is not a material object, it is a stream of consciousness, a flow of thought and the body which rooms it, is according to Buddha an aggregate of four great elements.

Mind and Mental Factors have been dealt with the materials available in the early Buddhist texts. Herein different plans of consciousness have been exposed, and also explained. In this connection a variety of views about Mind of different schools of Buddhist Philosophy have also been discussed.

An endeavour has been made to supply the reader with a critical study of views held by both Buddhist and Western psychologists about Mind and its factors. The way of consciousness in Buddhist Psychology is a journey from ethical maxims to psychological principles. Buddhist Psychology is also said to be a meeting point between ethics on the one hand and psychology on the other.
