The following publication specified the subject from the perspective of Abhidhamma - the Buddhist empirical study of personality. From the starting point of a structure of consciousness and a classification of factors (cetasika) of consciousness the authoress outlines the psychological dimension of Buddha's science. The fundament of Buddhist psychology is a dynamic process of transformation of individual consciousness (bhavanga-sota) on the Buddhist path (atthangika magga). The positive (kusala//sobhana)-, negative (akusala)- and neutral (annasamana) factors of consciousness determine the creative act of evolution of spirit. The aim of the immediate experience (meditation) is to eliminate the negative (akusala) factors of consciousness. On the highest (lokuttara) levels of consciousness negative (akusala) factors of consciousness do not subsist.
