Description
 
The central teaching of the Buddha, drawn from the context of the society he lived in, and explained in terms of modern life.

Dependent arising is the backbone of the Buddha's doctrine -- all the other lessons he taught relate to it, or refer to it in some way -- yet it is the least understood. There is a confusion of theories as to its meaning: is it about three lives, or one? about rebirth or moment-to-moment creation of the ego? Yet when dependent arising is seen in the light of the central myth of the Buddha's day (the creation of First Man and how that relates to our creation of self) the whole structure becomes much clearer, and many of the points of confusion are straightened out. People have long asked, for example, how the 'actions' of the second step precede consciousness in the third, or why we seem to be told that we would want to completely stop consciousness, and contact with the world, and feeling. All these questions are easily answered when we see where the structure came from, and what the lesson is really about.
