The Magic of the Mind

By Bhikkhu Nyanananda

The philosophically and psychologically important Kalakarama Sutta brings out some striking features of the epistemology of early Buddhism.

As a prologue and as a framework for discussion of his exposition of the discourse, the author gives the simile of the “magic-show” to show the illusory nature of consciousness in the context of doctrinal categories such as the five aggregates. Throughout the exposition similes and analogies, both canonical and modern, and quotations from other discourses are given to illustrate and explain the relevant facts.
