By "attachment" do you mean upadana?

I don't know what you mean by "attachment," but my sense is that dukkha is related to "attachment" as contact/feelings/craving/clinging/becoming. But is based more on my experience of these aspects of dependent origination rather than a commentary on how I relate to "attachment."chownah wrote:P.P.S. Is there any connection between Dukkha and attachment? (Yes, this is a pun but it is also a serious question.)
