Abhidhamma View : The Origin of Suffering

Dear Members,

:candle: Abhidhamma View : The Origin of Suffering :candle:
[Presented by Dr.Tep Sastri @ sariputtadhamma/JTN]

Vism. p. 518 :
61. But in the description of the origin, the expression yaaya.m ta.nhaa (that craving which) = yaa aya.m ta.nhaa. [As regards the expression] produces further becoming: it is a making become again, thus it is "becoming again" (punabbhava); becoming again is its habit, thus it "produces further becoming" (ponobbhavika). The expression nandiraaga-sahagataa (accompanied by concern and greed) = nandiraagena sahagataa; what is meant is that it is identical in meaning with delight and greed.

Concerned with this and that: wherever personality is generated there is concern with that. The expression that is to say (seyyathida.m) is a particle; its meaning is "which is that." Craving for sense desires, craving for becoming, craving for nonbecoming will be explained in the Description of Dependent Origination (XVII.233ff.). Although this is threefold, it should nevertheless be understood as "the noble truth of the origin of suffering," taking it as one in the sense of its generating the truth of suffering.
