The World and Ourselves Book

Buddhist Psychology
Ven. Thubten Gyatso

This title presents the classic framework of Buddhist mind and mental factors, explains how they operate, offers insightful commentary based on personal experience and explores how Western psychological concepts such as the super-ego can work with Buddhist psychological concepts.

Ven. Gyatso muses, “After seven years experience as a doctor working in hospitals in Australia, New Guinea, and England, I had become convinced that human suffering and happiness are largely rooted in our behaviour, and in particular the attitudes behind our behaviour. These Buddhist teachings may have challenged my scientific world-view to the core, but after eighteen months of thorough investigation, I accepted them to be valid. Although I still have a long way to go on my own path, many have requested me to share with them what I have learned since then; hence this book.”
