This article by the Venerable Nyanatiloka Mahathera illuminates one of the Buddha’s most misunderstood but profoundly important teachings.
From the Introduction:
„Now, let it here be said, once for all, that the Paticca-Samuppada (Doctrine of Dependent Origination) is nothing but the teaching of conditionality and interdependence of all the manifold phenomena of existence, that is, of everything that happens, be it in the realm of the physical or the [psychological]. It shows that combination of phenomena known by the ‚conventional name‘ of ‚I‘, is not at all a mere play of blind chance, but how each phenomenon in this process of existence is entirely dependent upon other phenomena as its conditions, so that with the removal of those phenomena that form the conditions of rebirth and suffering they will not arise again.“
