Does Dependent Origination operate over three lifetimes?
DO will operate as long as one exists in Kama loka or sensual worlds. If I remember correct , there are eleven sensual worlds ( realms),out of the total of 31 realms.

Are you saying that DO will not operate in the fine-material, inmaterial and deprivation realms?.

if Buddha was here, just in face of me, this would not help me in any way. i already know what to do.
i mean, do it or do not it's up to you.

[ note 1 - well ok obviously external world has an impact, eg if you dye right now because of an earthquake, but it does not change the principle ]
[ note 2 - i know some people disagree and sutta disagree with what i wrote. think by yourself and believe what you want. ]
