Also known as:
dependant origination
dependant arising

Pratītyasamutpāda (dependant origination) is a Buddhist doctrine that claims that all phenomena arises from another and makes way for other phenomena to happen.


Most other concepts like Anattā, impermanence, karma etc can be derived from this as shown by Nāgārjuna in his Mūlamadhyamakakārikā.
