Dhammasangani[edit | edit source]

(Enumeration of Dhammas/Phenomena)


Dhammasangani is the first book of Abhidhamma. Dhammasangani begins with a Matika (Pali for "matrix"), which is a list of classifications of Dhammas, variously translated as nature,ideas, phenomena, states, patterns etc. There are 22 3-fold classifications, followed by 100 2-fold ones according to the Abhidhamma method and 42 according to the Sutta(discourses). The main body of the book is in four parts, as follows.
The first part deals with states of mind, listing and defining factors present in them.
The second deals with material phenomena, classifying them numerically, by ones, twos etc.
The third part applies the material in the first two to explaining the classifications in the Matika.
The fourth does likewise, but in a different and sometimes more detailed way, and omitting the sutta(discourses) method 2-fold classifications.
