This short treatise entitled Äbhidhammic Interpretations of Early Buddhist Teachings” was prepared as a guide to the students of the Postgraduate Diploma Course in Buddhist Studies at the Graduate School of Buddhist Studies, Buddhist Research Society in Singapore. I was invited by Ven. Bellanwila Dhammaratana Thera, the chief advisor of the Buddhist Research Society, to give a series of lectures on Abhidhamma for the students of the above mentioned course. The lectures that I gave there within a period of one month were transformed into a booklet due to the request made by the students.
