for Bhikkhu Bodhi's text analyzing the Sutta in detail.
I was inspired by the waterfall about 100 m away from Dhammapala monastery, and I made this video with Sutta quotes:Dhammas flowing over into dhammashttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9LOAXrQzzY
Transcendental Dependent Arising - Upanisa Sutta, the "Discourse on Supporting Conditions".
Then also there is a new video with Bhante G:Supporting Meditation
Bhante Gunaratana on the Upanisa Sutta (A 11), the holistic approach to supporting meditative development through cultivating virtue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0U1sBbBo1_c

Thank you for that - I enjoyed both videos.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

I haven't read the article, but would I be wrong in saying that the factors from 'knowledge and vision of things as they are' to 'knowledge of destruction of the taints' occur at, more or less, the same moment?
