Dependent Coarising: meaning construction in the twelve links

WebCoverThe twelve links of dependent co-arising are touted traditionally as among the deepest teachings of the Buddha. Yet they have become misunderstood and marginalized as a support for actual practice. The epistemic approach of this book  restores the cognitive basis of this critical teaching, thereby recovering the subjectivity and insubstantiality fundamental to the early Buddhadharma, particularly  in revealing how we misperceive the world . It discusses each of the twelve links in detail and explains how they cohere into the process that keeps us entangled in saṃsāra. Each link thereby becomes a focus for practice toward liberation from the human dilemma.

This book is now available for download as a pdf HERE. Hardcopies are available at the Sitagu Buddha Vihara library and at the Sitagu Dhamma Vihara (MN), and for order at printing cost from Lulu.com HERE. Ebook formats are also certainly forthcoming.
