The Abhidhamma Pitaka, the third section of the Pali Tipitaka, consists of Seven books. The first three of these, such as Dhammasangani, Vibhanga and Dhatukatha, form a closesly integrated group of fundamental importance to the correct understanding and interpretation of the teachings of the Buddha.

The second of these, Vibhanga , is the subject of this present translation, and it is perhaps fitting that its relationship to these other two works should be explained.

Vibhahga deals specifically with a number of these topics, showing in some both the method of analysis and the definitions used by the Buddha in general discourses (Suttantabhajaniya) and the technical analysis and definitions (Abhidhammabhajaniya) used when the same matter was discussed from a strictly philoso­phical aspect. Coupled with this there is in a large number of the chapters a special section entitled Interrogation (Panhapucchaka), which shows in detail how each of the special terms used are to be defined within the framework of Triplets and Couplets previously enumerated in Dhammasahgani.
