Alex123, I don't see an answer to the OP in your post. I don't mind if there is or isn't, I'm just letting you know that I don't see one.
If my questions are unclear, someone please let me know.
[quote="Alex123"]What else do you propose?[quote]
What else do I propose for what? Punabbhava? My #1 pick would be to keep to the original Pali 'punabbhava'. Otherwise re-becoming or re-being, until I hear another alternative that I don't find so obfuscating. I won't be using re-birth for puna-bbhava for reasons found in the same sutta you quoted, DN 15:
"'From becoming (bhava) as a requisite condition comes birth (jaati).' Thus it has been said. And this is the way to understand how from becoming as a requisite condition comes birth. If there were no becoming at all, in any way, of anything anywhere — i.e., sensual becoming, form becoming, or formless becoming — in the utter absence of becoming, from the cessation of becoming, would birth be discerned?"
"Thus this is a cause, this is a reason, this is an origination, this is a requisite condition for birth, i.e., becoming.
"'From clinging as a requisite condition comes becoming.' Thus it has been said. And this is the way to understand how from clinging as a requisite condition comes becoming. If there were no clinging at all, in any way, of anything anywhere — i.e., clinging to sensuality, clinging to precepts and practices, clinging to views, or clinging to doctrines of the self — in the utter absence of clinging, from the cessation of clinging, would becoming be discerned?"
"Thus this is a cause, this is a reason, this is an origination, this is a requisite condition for becoming, i.e., clinging."
I don't know why you quoted DN15. It contains neither 're-birth' in that particular English translation, nor punabbhava in the Pali, but would "be produced" is 'abhinibbattissathā'. Do you translate this as re-birth as well as puna-bbhava? Are they really synonymous? What other Pali words do you call re-birth?
DN 15 is a great defense for using the original pali instead of re-birth; using 'anhinibbatti' where abhinibbatti is meant, how many messy 'literal or moment-to-moment' re-birth arguments and qualifications could be avoided?
