What are the ten dual conditions?

The Twelve Causes and Conditions is a very specific teaching, the core of the Buddhist worldview, mentioned consistently in all the scriptures.

The ten dual conditions are the practice of contemplating all things, up to samsara, all due to the conditions that arise. really nothing arises, nothing ceases.

Together with the Four Noble Truths , the two conditions and conditions are very important teachings in the Theravada canonical system. These are twelve factors that are interrelated according to dependent origination and cause and effect, happening in all three times past, present, future.

Before the Buddha’s birth, there were also many enlightened practitioners who have come out of samsara, which is the Enlightened ones.

The Pratyekabuddhas often contemplate all things, whether body or scene, life or death, which are transformed into existence by conditions, not real. They often contemplate things, only treat, not self-nature. 

For example, the paper, it has the characteristics of thin, square, white, those characteristics are all treat, because thin for thick to be, square for what is not square, and white for What is not white, but the paper is an object with appearance, there is no success, clearly the paper has only treats, besides those characteristics, it is not only what paper okay.

Observing like that, we realize that the appearances of things are false, not true, by condition to discover, by condition that changes, nothing is certain.

The Single Enlightenment observes like that, the enlightenment of the dhammas is selfless, the scene is also selfless, the body is also anattā, until all life and death are selfless. At the same time, the Omniscient beings are able to realize such non-self dhammas, which change according to conditions, but often use the concentration force to contemplate what is or what is not, to make the truth of all things clearer. , prove the nature of selflessness and out of samsara.

For the Buddhist disciples, who have the basis of contemplating the conditions and conditions, the Buddha teaches the 12 conditions to arise from samsara, so that they can practice according to and realize the results of Dependent Origination.

Detailed explanation of 12 conditions

  1. Ignorance: 

Ignorance is ignorance, is mistaken, does not get true dependent nature. Due to ignorance, not knowing all things, body oil, oil, birth oil, oil, energy oil, oil, oil, no oil, are born by predestined relationships, but falsely. The conditions disintegrate, but the false is lost, all according to conditions and conditions change like illusory, like chemical, no reality. Because we do not know that, we mistakenly admit that we really have a self, we really have a body, we really have a situation.

  1. Onions: 

Action is the ceaseless mind that ceases to arise, it causes sentient beings to mistakenly have their own mind, their own self, advocate for karma, and then suffer retribution.

  1. Consciousness:

The mindfulness of arising and passing away continues, according to karma, conditions the consciousness of each life, subjecting to the body and the scene of one or another species.

  1. Identity:

Karmic consciousness karmic conditions generate nama. Rupa, consisting of appearances, such as body and sight; Nāma, which includes those without form, such as the knowing, in other words, is any karmic consciousness, appears the mind and realm of that karma.

  1. Luc import:

For the realm of mind and mind, predestination arises the charges of the 6 senses, the eye-senses receive the ceiling, the ear-base receives the ceiling, the billion-base receives the bare incense, the body receives the ceiling, the body-base. load exposed ceiling and sense base to receive legal ceiling.

  1. Contact:

Due to such indulgences, the ceilings affect the mind that is related to each other, so it is called contact.

  1. Life:

Due to such relationships between mind and scene, the birth of feelings is suffering, bliss, joy, feeling and discharge.

  1. Ai:

Because of those feelings, the mind is attached to the body, to the feeling, to the happy feeling, to love it, to the suffering, to the feeling of feeling, to hate and to have aversion, the mind is more attached to the body, to the scene, than ever before.

  1. Prime:

Because the mind is attached to the body and the scene, it is not possible to see the truth as illusory, as if it were, but also to combine the discrete images received in the present, into determined appearances, and then accept everything. things are real, attachments like that, called defensive.

  1. Huu:

Due to the attachment of mind, such things as illusory become real, body, scene, human, self, cause karma, report, life and death, something like that, ie organic.

  1. Born:

Having life, that is, being born, in other words, is due to unknown morality dependent origination as illusory, no self nature, so mistakenly there is life.

  1. Elderly:

Lao death is old and then dies. Because we live, we get old, then we die.

The twelve conditions and conditions are a continuous chain, passing from one stage to the next over many lifetimes. Because there is ignorance through action in past lives, conditions arise in the consciousness of this life. That mind-consciousness, according to karmic conditions, generates nama and rupa, karma-dependent rupa produces six-decade paths, six-tenuous conditions arise, contact conditions arise. Consciousness, nama, rupa, contact and feeling, are all the strange results of karma, caused before.

Sutra A Ham, Buddha taught: “Should this be that that, this should not should that or not, this one should arise that the other arises, this one ceases so the other ceases”. This is a theorem about dependent origination. All the dharma s from unintentional to sentient beings borrow from each other, support each other, and depend on each other that arise and exist. Like a bundle of mops, leaning on each other to stand firm; if one spike falls, the others will be hard-pressed.

Twelve conditions also belong to the doctrine of Dependent Origination, but the term is for sentient beings. If viewed vertically from top to bottom, the upper limb conditions the lower limb arose. Ignorance is Or the cause of the past, which conditions Karma to arise. Because of being the cause of the past, the current cultivator cannot change anything towards Ignorance, but mainly only transforms the present cause, Ai Thu Huu. The present cause is eliminated, there is no future effect. Birth of old death today ends.

Depending on the understanding of the twelve conditions and preferences, practitioners can apply many sophisticated methods. But in the end there are two important links. If either one can be broken, the interrelated relationship between the limbs can be broken: that is ignorance and sensual love, these two limbs are the very powerful forces that move the wheel of samsara. , both have the same ignorant nature.

The cycle of linking the twelve phenomena is often concretized by a wheel drawn on a picture called Thăng-ka (thanka). That wheel is called the Wheel of existence or the Wheel of Samsara.

Related causes and effects divided into 3 periods (addhā), 12 chi (aṅga), 20 bodies (ākāra), 3 connecting seats (sandhi), 4 seats summary (sankhepa), 3 rotation (vaṭṭa) , 2 original (mūla).

Prize: the saying that the three periods are: past, future, present; ignorance and action – these two genera belong to the past period; consciousness, identity, six senses, contact, feeling, love, attachment, friendship – these eight genera belong to the present period; birth and old death – these two genera belong to the future. The place to say the twelve is from ignorance to old age to death.
