I have a question for the Pali experts, such as Ajahn Dhammanando.
We usually translate the word samudaya as 'cause'.
However, I am under the impression it means 'origin' or 'complete arising'.
Thus, what did the Lord Buddha intend to say when he used the term 'dukkha samudaya' in the Second Noble Truth?
Was he referring to 'the cause' or more?
I think the word hetu means 'prior cause' thus samudaya appears more detailed than hetu.
