Term Definition
Dependent origination
(skt.: pratityasamutpada; tib.: ten drel) The way that all phenomena exist conventionally. The principal that nothing exists independently. There are three ways how phenomena come into being (each more subtle): 
1. phenomena come into being in dependence upon causes and conditions
2. phenomena come into being in dependence upon their parts
3. phenomena come into being in dependence upon the mind imputing or labeling them

"The purpose of meditation is not to reach nirvana and then disappear. If that was the case, it would be better that you manifested as a flower!"
