Dependent origination and sense-process correspondence

Postby Sati1 » Mon Mar 17, 2014 4:29 pm

Hello,

Apologies - I'm asking a second question for the day: Does anybody understand the correspondence between the 12 links of dependent origination (DO) and the 17 cittas of one sense-process (SP)? This is how I see it:

1. Ignorance (avijja) in DO is the ignorance that leads us to create volitions during javana cittas
2. Formations (sankhara) in DO corresponds to the volition cetasika of a javana kammic citta in SP.
3. Consciousness (viññana) in DO corresponds to the resultant (vipaka) sense-consciousness citta of a later SP (either in this life or in a subsequent one)
4. Nama-Rupa in DO is the experience that results from the arising of the sense consciousness in SP
5. 6 Sense-Bases = ?
6. Contact in DO is the contact cetasika of the sense-consciousness in SP
7. Feeling is the feeling cetasika of the sense-consciousness in SP
8. Craving & 9. Clinging are the 7 javana kammic cittas and their volition cetasikas that follow the sense-consciousness in SP and that generate new kamma
10. Becoming is the new kamma that leads to suffering (11, 12) but also conditions a new Consciousness (3) for a new cycle of kammic ripening followed by generation of kamma.

Is this correct?

Thank you,

Please do remember and seek Nama and Rupa as anatta which need to understand as simple as zero.
non of them is exist....but all of SinKhara Dhamma arise and gone away itself whist you noticed that.

means it's only left of Knowing and Not knowing moments.

Sorry for my poor English.

Dear Anatta,

Thank you for your response. I agree - each of these processes is nonself and must be regarded as such.

Best,
