blanchard_cover Dependent Arising In Context: The Buddha’s Core Lesson, in the Context of His Time and Ours / Linda S. Blanchard
Dependent arising is the backbone of the Buddha’s doctrine–all the other lessons he taught relate to it, or refer to it in some way–yet it is the least understood. There is a confusion of theories as to its meaning: Is it about three lives, or one? About rebirth or moment-to-moment creation of the ego? All these questions are easily answered when we see where the structure came from, and what the lesson is really about.
