Dependent Origination

Duration 24:45

Perhaps after the concept of no-self (anatta), the second hardest Buddhist teaching for beginners to understand, is the theory on Dependent Origination. It explains the reason why beings are caught in this cyclic existence of Samsara, and how gaining insight through meditation, is the key to freedom from repeated rebirth and suffering.

In this video, I’ll use the Wheel of Life diagram to help illustrate the law of Dependent Origination, so that you can see exactly how this process works and how having insight into our true nature is the key to unravelling Samsara and can break this causal chain, leading to spiritual freedom and awakening.
