Abhidharma-kosa

Postby PaulD » Thu Dec 17, 2009 6:36 am

Hi all,

Is the Abhidharma-kosa text accepted by Theravadin Buddhists? Are there any contradictions between the Pali Canon and Abhidharma-kosa?

A more detailed comparison is found in Herbert V. Guenther, "Philosophy and Psychology in the Abhidharma", which compares the Theravada abhidhamma, the Abhidharmakosha and the Abhidharmasamuccaya.

Thanks very much for giving the sources on differences between abhidhamma/abhidharma.
