The Visuddhimagga — here rendered 'Path of Purification' — is perhaps unique in the literature of the world. It systematically summarizes and interprets the teaching of the Buddha contained in the Pali Tipitaka, which is now recognized in Europe as the oldest and most authentic record of the Buddha's words. As the principal non-canonical authority of the Theravdda, it forms the hub of a complete and coherent method of exegesis of the Tipitaka, using the ' Abhidhamma method' as it is called. And it sets out detailed practical instructions for developing purification.
