Nidāna Sutta

1. Nidāna Sutta.– Taught at Kammāsadamma. Ānanda tells the Buddha that though the Law of Dependent Origination (paṭiccasamuppāda) is so deep, yet, to him, it is so plain. The Buddha warns him against such an idea, because the entire cycle of existence (saṃsāra) is due to lack of understanding of the Causal law (S.ii.92). This sutta was probably called the Cūḷanidāna Sutta (e.g., MA.i. 225; VibhA.267) as opposed to the Mahānidāna Sutta.

2. Nidāna Sutta.– Two suttas on the three originating causes of action: lust, malice and delusion. A.i.134 f.

3. Nidāna Sutta.– The three causes of action: lust, malice and delusion. A.i.263.

4. Nidāna Sutta.– Absence of lust, malice and delusion prevents the arising of actions. A.i.264.

5. Nidāna Sutta.– Actions are originated by desire for things which, in the past, were based on desire, for the like things in the future and at the present time. A.i.265.

6. Nidāna Sutta.– The opposite of No.3. A.i.266.

7. Nidāna Sutta.– The three means by which deeds are heaped up: greed, hatred and delusion. A.iii.338.
