Causation

What one intends, and what one plans, and whatever one has a tendency towards it becomes a basis for the maintenance of consciousness.
This basis, is a support for the establishing of consciousness. When consciousness is established and has come to growth, with it name and form is created. With name and form there is condition, the six senses come to be.

If then one does not intend, and one does not plan, but one still has a tendency towards something, this becomes a basis for the maintenance of consciousness. When there is a basis, there is a support for the establishing of consciousness. When consciousness is established and has come to growth, there is creation of name and form. With name and form as condition, the six senses come to be.

This is the origin of suffering.

If one does not intend or plan and does not have a tendency towards anything, no basis exists for the maintenance of consciousness. When there is no basis, there is no support for the establishing of consciousness. When consciousness is unestablished and does not come to growth, there is no descent of name and form. With the cessation of name and form comes cessation of the six senses.

This is the cessation of suffering.

  1. The only thing I can’t understand that consciousness is growing from nothing (unestablished) through a long chain of manifestations of forms up to a human in which it reaches its peak and all this long way is done only to become unestablished again?

    • So long as to those things
      Called ‘mine, and ‘I’ and ‘me’
      Your hungry heart still clings
      My snares you cannot flee.
      The faithful disciple replies:
      Naught’s mine and naught of me,
      The self I do not mind!
      Thus Mara, I tell thee,
      My path thou canst not find.

    • so why does consciousness is growing from nothing (unestablished) through a long chain of manifestations of forms up to a human????

  2. Simply the wisdom of how everything works. The universe/cosmos/life is created, sustained, destroyed (Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra)….spanning from time lengths of 1 billionth of a second to 1 billion years (www.hinduwebsite.com/hinduism/h_time.asp) ….for example life in all forms shapes have different life spans, from few seconds, few days, few months, years 100s etc…..same with stars and planets (but longer) thousands, millions, billions, trillions.

    But they ALL go through the process of being created, sustained and destroyed, and it cycles forever… and reabsorbed to source. Ultimately cosmos itself will go back to its original source…and then burst again….spiritually…MahaVishnu inhales….and exhales…key thing here is time scale factor which mundane people can not process.

    ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात्पुर्णमुदच्यते
    पूर्णश्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥
    ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

    Om Puurnnam-Adah Puurnnam-Idam Puurnnaat-Purnnam-Udacyate
    Puurnnashya Puurnnam-Aadaaya Puurnnam-Eva-Avashissyate ||
    Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih ||

    Aum! That is infinite, and this (universe) is infinite.
    The infinite proceeds from the infinite.
    (Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),
    It remains as the infinite alone. If you subtract, add or multiply or divide 0 by 0 the answer is also 0. So whatever has come from God as universe and its contents will also has to go back and merge in Him.

    Sucks though when someone doesn’t have any experience of god, then all of this is thought to be just ones beliefs. And then the world is flat and the moon is an alien space station.

  3. > From one [world], the other looks ridiculous.
    That’s true. Even in the material world people can’t understand each other sometimes. And it’s much more difficult to understand a spiritual experience from the material world even if that one was your own. So, what we can understand from the experience of others.

    • Yes. That is why it is necessary to study from shastra with a real guru instead of pretending and making meaning and drowning in egoic fantasies. and I mean this for every path.
