4. Paṭhamabhava Sutta.– Ānanda asks the Buddha to what extent there is becoming. There will be becoming as long as there are worlds of sense, of form, and of formlessness; action (kamma) is the field, consciousness the seed (bīja), and craving the moisture (sneho) that bring about rebirth in these worlds. A.i.223 f.
5. Dutiyabhava Sutta.– Identical to the above, except for volition (cetanā) and aspiration (patthanā) being substituted for consciousness (viññāṇa) as the support for continued existence — “cetanā patiṭṭhitā patthanā patiṭṭhitā evaṃ āyatiṃ punabbhavābhinibbatti hoti.” A.i.224.
