Beginner Buddhism Season 2, Lesson 9: Interdependent Co-Arising

I haven’t done a video in quite a while, but I finally finished one:

This video talks about the notion of Pratītyasamutpāda in Sanskrit: interdependent co-arising: the idea that phenomena including things, ideas and such all come from multiple causes and conditions. As the Buddha described it in his own words:

When this is, that is.
From the arising of this comes the arising of that.
When this isn’t, that isn’t.
From the cessation of this comes the cessation of that.

It’s the last major subject I wanted to cover before the final video in the series.

When I made this video it was late night, and I was sleepy, but it still turned out better than expected. The video flowed better than some others I’ve made.

Anyhow enjoy and thanks for watching!
