MN 18 Madupindika Sutta

Post by SarathW » Thu Jan 04, 2018 10:00 am

I like this sutta as this adds another variation to Dependent Origination.
Many of us wonder why perception is not included in DO and this sutta provide the answer to it.
It also provides how Vitakka and Vicara which is relavant to Jahana a part of DO.
Another important point is it shows how the objectification take place using DO.

============
"Now, when there is the eye, when there are forms, when there is eye-consciousness, it is possible that one will delineate a delineation of contact.[1] When there is a delineation of contact, it is possible that one will delineate a delineation of feeling. When there is a delineation of feeling, it is possible that one will delineate a delineation of perception. When there is a delineation of perception, it is possible that one will delineate a delineation of thinking. When there is a delineation of thinking, it is possible that one will delineate a delineation of being assailed by the perceptions & categories of objectification.
