Synopsis:
Reprinting new edition due Summer 2012. An original work of Buddhist philosophy that examines the mind's tendency to distort reality through its own conceptual activity.

This work focuses upon two important but controversial terms found in the Buddha's discourses - papanca and papancasanna sankha. Bhikkhu Nanananda sees these terms as referring to the mind's conceptual proliferation, its tendency to create a screen of concepts by which it misinterprets the basic data of experience. He shows the characteristic Buddhist teaching of no-self to have new dimensions of significance, not only in the context of Buddhism but also in relation to philosophy, psychology, and ethics. Copious quotations from the Buddhist texts provide increased knowledge and new interpretations of obscure passages. This book will serve as a stimulating source of insights into the deep meaning of the Dhamma.
