Tika-Patthana is a part of the Buddha's teachings which is enshrined in Tipiṭaka (which means, literally, "three baskets"). Tipiṭaka is arranged in three divisions: Vinaya Piṭaka, Sutta Piṭaka, and Abhidhamma Piṭaka. Tika-paṭṭhāna is a part of Abhidhamma Piṭaka, a compendium of profound teachings elucidating the functioning and interrelationships of mind, mental factors, matter and phenomena transcending all of these.
This book describes the working of the human mind in great detail and explains the twenty-four fundamental relations that govern all phenomena.
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as Pali scholars.
