The Great Discourse on Causation
The Mahānidāna Sutta and Its Commentaries
By Bhikkhu Bodhi
The Mahanidana Sutta is the Buddha’s longest discourse on dependent arising, often taken to be the key to his entire teaching. The commentary treats this doctrine according to the Abhidhamma method, explained in an appendix. A penetrative introduction lays bare the sutta’s structure and the philosophical significance of dependent arising.
