The tables listed here are adapted from Wisdom Wide and Deep: A Practical Handbook for Mastering Jhana and Vipassana, by Shaila Catherine (Wisdom Publications, 2011). These tables illustrate the primary concepts of the Buddhist cognitive psychology known as Abhidhamma. Designed for easy printing, we hope these tables will support the practical application of Abhidhamma principals in meditation, and deepen your understanding of the function of perception in life.
