The Dynamics of Being

by Sangharakshita

An explanation of the twelve links of conditioned co-production (nidanas), and how Faith (shraddha) arises in dependence on unsatisfactoriness (dukkha).

N.B. Last few words missing.

Note: unfortunately, there is no recording of the preceding lecture, which dealt with the five skandhas.

Talk given in 1966
