it just sorta fills in the gaps that might be there between my practice and my reading of suttas, a bad analogy could be my practice is a car my sutta understanding is knowing how to drive, the abhidhamma is knowing how the car works or something like that.... :shrug:

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
