Dependent Origination

The Buddhist notion of dependent origination (or dependent arising, interdependent origination, etc.) is complicated and difficult. We’ll look at its manifestation in the early teachings, in its canonical twelve-step formula as well as in formulations that are simpler. Then we’ll tackle the question of how to unbind oneself from the chain altogether.
