Clearing the Path – Nanavira Thera’s Notes on Dhamma (1960–1965)





Clearing the Path is a work book. Its purpose is to help the user to acquire a point of view that is different from his customary frame of reference. Necessarily, an early step in accomplishing this change is the abandonment of specific mistaken notions about the Buddha’s Teaching and about the nature of experience. This initial change in specific views may lead to a change in point-of-view, whereby one comes to understand experience from a perspective different from what one has been accustomed to—a perspective in which intention, responsibility, context, conditionality, hunger, and related terms will describe the fundamental categories of one’s perception and thinking—and which can lead, eventually, to a fundamental insight about the nature of personal existence.
