I've been looking into Buddhist concepts and the topic of infinite universes in existence popped up, and the Buddhist text called the "Abhidharmartha Pradipika" talks about infinite universes? And I was wondering what chapter/verse talks about it so I could look more into it.

    By mentioning "Abhidharmartha Pradipika", are you referring to the book written by Dr. Amaradasa Rathnapala?

  • Yeah that Buddhist text. I've talked to some Buddhists about it and it's pretty popular among them

It is in ...

  1. AN 3.80.
  2. The Path of Purification, Six Recollection, Recollection into Buddha's Value.(Visuddhimagga ChaAnussatiNiddesa BuddhanussatiKatha).
  3. AbhidhammatthaVibhavini 5th Chapter.
  4. etc.

Abhidhanappadipika is a Glossary explanation.


Abhidharmarthapradipika can be read here in four volumes, but it is all in Sinhalese. You will need to find a translator or someone who can read it for you. I don't know if it has been translated.

http://m.budaedu.org/ebooks/p6-2-SR.php (search this for "PRADIPIKA") http://ftp.budaedu.org/ebooks/pdf/SR041.pdf (Vol. 1)

The rest of the volumes are on the first link.
