Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)
Paramattha Dhamma or Abhidhamma is not a Dhamma which is beyond one"s ability to understand because paramattha Dhamma is reality. Right view, right understanding, is actually knowing the characteristics of paramattha Dhammas as they really are.Source: Buddhist Information: A Survey of Paramattha Dhammas
There are four paramattha dhammas:
Citta, cetasika and rupa are sankhara dhammas, conditioned dhammas; they do not arise by themselves, each of them is conditioned by other phenomena.
Nibbana is the unconditioned dhamma, visankhara dhamma or asankhata dhamma; it does not arise and fall away.Source: Dhamma Study: Cetasikas
