Have you ever found yourself caught in difficult mind states with the uncomfortable feeling that this same experience has happened before, without understanding how you got there or how you might avoid repeating this same pattern again and again?
According to the Buddha, these cycles of painful repetition are not inevitable. There are lawful steps that lead to freedom from this endless and distressing repetition.
The Buddha calls these steps, the cycle of Liberative Dependent Origination, a lawful progression that starts with suffering and ends with liberating understanding and a release from suffering.
When we are familiar with the 12 links of Liberative Dependent Origination, it is a valuable support for releasing the fears, fixations and destructive distortions in our mind and a powerful ally in finding freedom from ignorance.
“This little discourse, (Liberative Dependent Origination) turns out upon repeated examination to be of tremendous doctrinal importance.” Bikkhu Bodhi
