Dharma Class 6: Dependent Origination: Existence, Arise, Cease

缘起:因此有彼,无此无彼,此生彼生,此灭彼灭。
Dependant Origination: Existence, Arise, Cease

Why is there suffering and rebirth?
How things arise and how things cease?
What is the causal chain that bound us in the Sea of Sufferings?

When this exists, that comes to be; with the arising of this, that arises. When this does not exist, that does not come to be; with the cessation of this, that ceases.
(Majjhima Nikāya: 115)
