One who sees dependent origination sees the Dhamma; one who sees the Dhamma sees dependent origination.” MN 28.28
This day long course will serve as an introduction to some of the key points of the Buddha’s teachings on dependent origination and emptiness. In the morning we will discuss what is seemingly the “original” version of the famous links as well as the more well known twelve links. We will also discuss other dependent origination links such as Transcendental Dependent Origination and the set of links found in the Honeyball Sutta (MN 18). In the afternoon we will discuss the general principle of dependent origination and its deep implications as well as the relationship of dependent origination and emptiness.
