Thank you pt1 for pointing out this valuable work.
I have a hardcopy of ACM which has been an invaluable reference. I recommend the work thoroughly for anyone who wishes to know a little of the Abhidhamma.

This is great. I have been searching for an easy-to-read introduction to Abhidhamma principles, and this looks to work just fine - and for free!

Hi all

I've heard that novice bhikkhus in Myanmar learn this compendium by heart to begin their studies. Has anyone ever come across a recording of bhikkhus reciting it? I think listening to that would be a great way to internalize it and it's concise enough to make it possible.

Metta,

Are there any differences between the and the one can order directly from the BPS, except the different cover designs?

Hi Putthujana
I would be surprised if there were any substantial differences.
Kind regards

Dear friends

The discussion on the merits of printing e-books as opposed to buying hardcopy books has been split from this thread and relocated in the lounge.
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1781

Out of respect for the original poster and those who are seeking to find or discuss the online edition of CMA, I ask that our posts stay on topic.
Thanks for your cooperation.
