Outlines of the Abhidharma
Author: Chogyam Trungpa
In this volume Trungpa discusses ego development as explained in the Abhidharma, a collection of Buddhist scriptures that studies the functioning of the mind and states of human consciousness. From the Buddhist perspective, the creation of the ego is a neurotic process based on a fundamental ignorance of our true situation. Trungpa shows how close examination of ego formation leads to confusion, while also providing an opportunity to develop true intelligence.
