The Psychological Dimension of Ethics in Buddhism

by Sangharakshita

This book is an accessible introduction to traditional Buddhist psychology, offering a clear description of the nature of the mind and how it functions.

Sangharakshita guides us expertly through the Abhidharma classification of positive and negative mental states and shows us how we can work with them. In exploring the part we play in creating our own suffering and happiness, he elucidates the relationship of the mind to karma and rebirth, and stresses the ethical, other-regarding nature of Buddhist psychology.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it… Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings — that doctrine believe and cling to and take it as your guide.
The Buddha
